In my opinion, yes global warming is taking place. The example that Stephan Schneider gave about a spot on a lung is fantastic. Schneider talks about value judgement and how much things mean to us. If I had a spot on my lung, I would want to take care of it, get it tested and know for sure what was happening and that is the same with global warming (Global Climate News. 2012). We cannot wait for the earth-shattering diagnosis; we have to treat each symptom as it appears. The people that are using utter distortion, which is each extreme and not reporting from all sides, have caused the global warming debate to go to the next level (Global Climate News. 2012). There are always people with special interests in mind, giving out their opinions for money. This causes chaos within our Country because we don’t know who to believe. Anything that is at both ends of the spectrum, needs to find a happy medium, to give us the facts and resolutions to the problem. Temperatures warming and ice melting trends are from GHG emissions and concentrations and the unfiltered use of the atmosphere as an unpriced sewer (Global Climate News. 2012). GHG concentrates are increasing along with positive radiative force and observed warming (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 2014). This is causing extreme changes that are observable like our weather. Droughts, flooding, heat waves and cold snaps are all examples of what is happening (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 2014).
