Locked: Global Warming? in Off Topic
That dozen is, of course, enough to melt the ice caps, displaying most of the world's population, as most of the world's population lives on coastlines.
Is that a baker's dozen or?
The biggest threat is to agriculture, and a threat of flooding to low-lying regions - generally, that's third-world asian nations. Hurricanes are still up in the air (no pun intended) with arguments that they'll get worse/get better in the scientific literature.
Spread of disease may also be an issue - climate change may allow some previously tropical diseases to spread out a bit more.
Oh, and some theories of the dinosaur's demise posit climate change as the cause - and not in the sense of "the climate changed because a bloody great meteorite hit the Earth"
what i have to say about global warming is earth doesnt go in a straight circle so sometimes its closer to the sun and sometimes its not. i think the scientists know this but they want their pay.or they are just thinking for more complicated soulutions
