The Effects Of Global Warming

Global

Since the late 1800's, the global average temperature has increased. Climatologists (scientists who study climate) have analysed the global warming that has occurred since the late 1800's. Human activities contribute to global warming by enhancing Earth's natural greenhouse effect.

The main human activities that contribute to global warming are the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) and the clearing of land. They say that natural processes could have caused global warming. global warming could have many damaging effects.

Through global warming, the surface waters of the oceans could become warmer, increasing the stress on ocean ecosystems, such as coral reefs. Global warming might, over centuries, melt large amounts of ice from a vast sheet that covers most of West Antarctica.

Climatologists are studying ways to limit global warming. Scientists use information from several sources to analyze global warming that occurred before people began to use thermometers.

In 2001, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a group sponsored by the United Nations (UN), published results of climate simulations in a report on global warming. The simulations showed that there can be no 'quick fix' to the problem of global warming.



Warming

Health care executives have limited cognizance of global warming and even less of peak oil. The entire health care industry will be forced to accommodate to dwindling fossil resources while simultaneously beginning to face the consequences of global warming.

The dimensions of what we face are uncertain, but the major question undeniably is how will hospitals change given the ecological (global warming as well as multiple sources of pollution and resource scarcity) and geological (twilight of fossil fuels) state of affairs the world now faces.

Former Vice-president and global warming activist Al Gore has so far refused to debate global warming skeptics, the debate has been brought to him. The 'Hot Air: The inconvenient truth' documentary has certainly acted as an eye opener to most prolific leaders all over the world.

As important as it is to know that global warming is, it is also important to know the dangers that surround it. Perhaps, the most horrific danger that may result from global warming is the panic that will likely set in.

We must explain the dangers of global warming and peak oil to medicine. Importantly, global warming is viewed as an opportunity to go green and demonstrate corporate social responsibility.
