10 Surprising Results of Global Warming
More of our forests are burning. Global warming heats of the temperatures of the world’s forests and turns them into literal tinder boxes. Scientists also attribute the higher number and duration of the forest fires to earlier snow melt, due to global warming.
We are watching the destruction of some of the world’s ancient remnants of civilization, as they crumble before our eyes. Temples and monuments are feeling the effects of increased temperatures, rising seas and pollution. They have stood for thousands of years, but are destined to be destroyed, maybe within our lifetime.
The mountains are growing. Yes, the melting of the ice caps which had an incredible weight on the mountains are creating a situation where, with the weight removed, they are actually gaining height. Global warming is allowing the mountains to spring back.
Satellites are speeding up. The increased amount of carbon dioxide is actually reducing the drag that the satellites typically experience. Space scientists have always had to allow for this drag percentage, and they are finding out that there is less and less drag with higher percentages of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

An incredible list of things that global warming is doing. I guess the conservatives won’t believe it until their own home starts to crumble. Then they will be the first in line to complain.April 24th, 2013 at 9:09 pm
Our pollution is destroying our past and our future. What does it take for people to wake up, stop watching reality shows and do something? Oh, that’s right, if we tax them, they will notice.April 23rd, 2013 at 1:34 pm
Mountains growing, who woulda thought. Makes sense with all that weight on them that when you remove it, it would bounce back.April 22nd, 2013 at 5:25 pm
Wonder how they are adjusting for the speed of the satellites? I guess they could get a projection of how much more carbon dioxide we are dumping into the atmosphere and then do the math. Pretty darned sad that we are affecting even our own technology.April 21st, 2013 at 11:21 pm
We used to sit on one of the far mountains in California and watch the hills burn during the fires. The smoke and ashes fly into the air and end up 60 miles away. Here other people are just driving down the freeway, and they are deluged with a rain of ash. Not surprising that it’s getting worse with global warming.April 20th, 2013 at 11:50 pm
