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.
