Updated list of things caused by global warming

** Note that in every single fearmongering example below, it always says, “might”, “could”, “maybe”, “would”, “some day”, etc.   The original list was obtained from this site, but I’m going to keep adding to it, as every day, I get another Google alert about the next thing that’s going to be catastrophically affected.  My question is, “Why is there never anything positive listed as a result of global warming?”

    This is for the greenhouse gas challenged. http://www.epa.gov/climatestudents/basics/today/greenhouse-effect.html

    I agree 100% with WCFN. Yet the oil, gas and a long line of groups continue to raise the flag of profits first. I realize I use links frequently to explain my views. Here are more. It’s a piece about Apple and their CEO that makes me proud they’re out there. Al Gore is on their Board and he was the target of a far right group. The investors were too sophisticated for their antics.

    Here it is:

    The best site ever developed by mountaineers that show befores and afters of glaciers in the Himalayas.
    See Mt. Everest Base Camp close up. Use your mouse to pan in. The resolution is amazing! http://explore.glacierworks.org/en/#trek/everest-base-camp

      233 feet in 50 years, during the end of an ice age is not alarming at all. That’s less than 5 feet a year.

  5. Maggie @ Coral Bradford March 10, 2014 at 9:04 am #

    Blimey, this is a crazy list. Thanks for updating it, a real eye opener

    • Donna Quixote March 10, 2014 at 10:21 am #

      And the number of contradictions are wild. Bigger waves, smaller waves, etc. It’s all just nuts.

    As somebody who has written about these same global warming hypocrisies (http://tinyurl.com/psfqkax) may i suggest that somebody archive these links in PDF format because many of the links in the original webpage (http://www.numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.htm) have since disappeared from the web.

    • Donna Quixote March 25, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

      That’s a good idea. I will look at doing that sometime when I have about 48 hours. :).

      No seriously, that is a good idea. I will try to get that done.

    Reblogged this on Illuminutti.

    Farming in the arctic and a longer growing season. That’s a bonus. No more low lying island disputes. Growing bananas in Idaho. Northern shipping lanes open up. Easier to be homeless in winter. Increase in inland real estate value…

    you missed increased HIV infection from the article on “pushes poor women into prostitution”. i’m startled that no one has thought up a Q or X word, yet, that can be blamed on AGW.

    • Donna Quixote April 28, 2014 at 7:53 am #

      🙂 I am working daily to revise this list. I will include that in the next revision. Thanks.

      • Floyd June 21, 2014 at 11:41 pm #

        Include in your next update; I’ve noticed that with global warming my angle of attack has gone from about 20 degrees above the horizontal to 15 degrees. It must be global warming.

  10. Bob Gold April 28, 2014 at 10:21 am #

    Positives from global warming.

    • Donna Quixote April 28, 2014 at 10:24 am #

      Good luck in trying to get any Climate alarmist or hysteria-driven media to EVER say anything about the positive side effects of a warmer planet.

    As the U.S. weather continues to warm northerly, the bark beetle is also destroying forests. Our friends who have a ranch in Idyllwild, CA (in the mountains above Palm Springs, CA) the bark beetles took hold and this once beatiful mountain community lost a significant number of their pines. As the planet continues to heat by the end of this century it’s expected for the temperatures to rise 1.8-4 degrees C or around 2.5 – 7 degrees F. The bark beetles destroy forests. For a peek google bark beetles and click on images. Shocking.

    This is a study that explains in readable terms what to expect for the Western U.S. and Canada. Click on the pdf icon on the right.

    Here’s another:

    Climate change could make red hair a thing of the past if Scotland gets sunnier

    Why is it that authorities claim that the Arctic is melting, that we have had the hottest day in years, etc? It seems that they do not look back at previous data showing in early times heat extreme and today now blamed on modern day living with cars industry etc. non existent previously. They use only what supports their theory.
