The Misconceptions about Global Warming

Global Warming

Earth is warming and the sad reality is that humans are the cause of it. Even though Earth had its natural cycles of cooling and warming but the rate at which the present warming is escalating is far beyond the normal cycle.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and all scientific organization worldwide have established anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming as fact. But there are still those who disagree and cannot admit that humans be the cause. Here are a few of the more common misconceptions made by the skeptics and what are the truth behind them.

1. Global warming isn’t true; it is only a dirty strategy of some groups to divert our attention to the real issue.

The truth is: It is certainly happening. Climate change is a reality and IPCC noted that we (humans) are to blame for our planet’s current warming.

2. Even if global warming is true, it has no real threat to humanity. It’s not really a problem.

The truth is: With ocean levels increasing, temperature records are soaring, and hurricane strength escalating, global warming is indeed a serious problem. Our climate is changing significantly for the worse and we are already feeling it.

3. Even if global warming is real, it happens gradually and we’ll have plenty of time to fix it in the future.

The truth is: Global warming is happening faster than most people think, and we must act now. There is no quick fix.

4. It’s not my responsibility to take action global warming, it’s our government’s duty to stop this and make some measures.

The truth is: Global warming is everybody’s responsibility.  Climate change is going to distress every inhabitant of the planet, and with this, it is everyone’s moral obligation to do whatever they can to preserve Earth.  One of the best ways to help is to support climate-friendly individuals/politicians and rally to educate people.

5. I am only a single person, it’s impossible to see what I can do to help and it won’t do anything in the grand scheme of things.

The truth is: Your actions can cause a “multiplier effect”, by influencing others to follow your example and the results make an enormous difference.

We are now facing one of the most serious problems and that is global warming. We must lessen our carbon footprints to protect the health and economic well-being of existing and future generations.

Education about this issue is very important. If we are equipped with knowledge, we can see how important our every action does to help or destroy our planet, I know that we can make a huge difference in slowing global warming.

Act now before the curse of natures hits us.
