Climate is influenced by a variety of factors, both human-induced and natural. The increase in the carbon dioxide concentration has been the principal factor causing warming over the past 50 years. Its concentration has been building up in the Earth’s atmosphere since the beginning of the industrial era in the mid-1700s, primarily due to the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) and the clearing of forests. Human activities have also increased the emissions of other greenhouse gases, such as methane, nitrous oxide, and halocarbons. These emissions are thickening the blanket of heat-trapping gases in Earth’s atmosphere, causing surface temperatures to rise. Even The Deniers Are Starting to Believe In a recent article, University of California-Berkeley physicist Richard Muller who is one of these 1% Global Warming Deniers and he has often criticized Al Gore and others over the reality and true science of predicting Global Warming. So in 2010 this Global Warming Critic started his own project to prove that Global Warming was not as real as so many other scientists have proven it to be true based on air and water mechanics, as well as long range temperature change trends. Muller named his project Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project (BEST) and he was going to prove how to do Global Warming measurements and that it was not really a problem. The Real Benefit to this project was, that Muller who was technically on the side of Big Oil received funding for his pet project by none other than the Oil Billionaires, The Koch Brothers. Well of course Big Oil and the Republicans were licking their chops when Muller gave his presentation in front of a congressional committee back in March. Well to everyone’s surprise, Muller’s research backed up all the other models that have been used to predict Global Warming. He stated that Global temperatures have gone up considerably over the past century, and the increase has accelerated over the past few decades. So… Just what else is it going to take for the people in this country to wake up and take a stand against Big Oil? The proof is overwhelming and if You keep denying the facts, there will be a Global Meltdown that will not be able to be stopped.
