In the 20th century, these processes roughly balanced, but dam building has slowed down and is expected to stay low for the 21st century. A sustained positive balance is also out of equilibrium and will advance to reestablish equilibrium. Quite the opposite, its continued destruction by geo-engineering has only accelerated the depletion of this vital buffer against damaging radiation from the sun.
Globally tens of millions of people will be displaced in the latter decades of the century if greenhouse gases are not reduced drastically. Because different climate models have slightly different patterns of ocean heating, they do not agree fully on the predictions for the contribution of ocean heating on sea level rise.
Here is a recent discussion which speaks directly to the confluence of circumstances which are creating a conducive environment for a planetary breakdown due to global warming. If the present trends persist the ice mass will gradually be reduced, and will affect the availability of water resources, though water loss is not expected to cause problems for many decades.
These differences may seem to be small, but they have important implications for understanding the processes of ocean and atmospheric circulation. Much of this precipitation began as water vapor evaporated from the ocean surface.
Because sea ice forms from the sea and floats on the sea, it behaves like ice cubes in a glass of water—their melting does not cause the glass to overflow. TPTW also know that the rest of the solar system has registered unprecedented and profound changes.
They do own every observatory and therefore understand what is really going beyond the earth realm.
These records are representative of changes in ice volume and temperature, and they reflect global processes as well as some local conditions. Any deliberate misappropriation of funding would be a criminal offence for which the offender could be jailed.
That our planetary civilization lives in jeopardy if it continues with these inherently destructive and fatally flawed energy paradigms. Cosmic Convergence Research Group. However, what Al Gore did not address is his documentary are the much greater contributing factors over which we humans have less control.
The late s marked the end of a year cooling trend. Therefore, there is no way of knowing if our planet would be in better, worse, or the same condition had Man never walked on it.
In the recent geological past changes in land ice and thermal expansion from increased temperatures are the dominant reasons of sea level rise. Use of two completely different approaches reinforced the Rignot projection.
How is the SUN triggering many earth changes?. The massive Greenland ice sheet is shedding about gigatons of ice a year into the ocean, making it the single largest source of sea level rise from melting ice.
Credit: NASA/Saskia Madlener Sea level rise is a natural consequence of the warming of our planet. The polar ice caps have melted faster in last 20 years than in the last 10, A comprehensive satellite study confirms that the melting ice caps are raising sea levels at an accelerating rate.
Europe. In France all six of the major glaciers in that country are in retreat.
On Mont Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps, the Argentière Glacier has receded 1, m (3, ft) since Other Mont Blanc glaciers have also been in retreat, including the Mer de Glace, which is the largest glacier in France at 12 km ( mi) in length but retreated m (1, ft) between and What is Global Warming?
Global warming is the slow increase in the average temperature of the earth’s atmosphere because an increased amount of the energy (heat) striking the earth from the sun is being trapped in the atmosphere and not radiated out into space.
The earth’s atmosphere has always acted like a greenhouse to capture the sun’s heat, ensuring that the earth has enjoyed. Quaternary: Quaternary, in the geologic history of Earth, a unit of time within the Cenozoic Era, beginning 2, years ago and continuing to the present day.
The Quaternary has been characterized by several periods of glaciation (the “ice ages” of common lore), when ice sheets many kilometres thick have.
Global sea level rose by about meters during the several millennia that followed the end of the last ice age (approximately 21, years ago), and stabilized between 3, and 2, years ago.Studies show melting of the polar ice caps is caused by global warming
