Global warming: why it has no justifiable grounds
There has been mixed reactions regarding the matter of global warming. Issues in relation to whether global warming results from man-made activities or is it a natural phenomenon remains the main concern to majority of scientists. In recent time, the global warming issue has taken a new twist, it is claimed that there is no global warming taking place on this globe today. This has been backed by scientific evidence from scholars and researchers. Majority of the studies indicate that there are no grounds to justify that global warming is taking place as it has been the pattern and nature of the earth to be warm since the inception of the ice age thousands of years ago.
The research claims that the earth keeps warming up to a certain temperature where it reaches the ice age and starts freezing. There is a limit to which carbon dioxide can warm the globe, if this limit is exceeded, the concentration decreases causing the earth to cool instead of warming. The claim that global warming is as a result of man-activities such as the release of carbon dioxide gases to the atmosphere doesn’t stand any ground, since carbon dioxide is a nature component of the atmosphere. If carbon dioxide is a component of the atmosphere, how then does it deplete the ozone layer? This is one of the queries that make advocators of ‘global warming as a result of man-made activities’ stand no reasonable ground to claim that. Another good reason as to why global warming is a natural occurrence is the fact that climate change is a regional occurrence not a global occurrence.
There are more scientific claims in recent times that have rendered global warming assertions baseless including studies carried out by Marcott et al. These studies suggest that there have been areas in which the temperatures of the world were higher that the recent time. The warmth of the early Halocene is trailed by ~70C chilling over the mid to late Halocene which resulted in the coolest temperature of the Halocene during the period of little ice age. The results of the research also indicated that the temperature of the period 2000-2009 has not exceeded the warmest temperature that was experienced in the early Halocene. It is evident from the validity of these claims that a time will come when the globe will start experiencing a decrease in temperature which will now be referred to as ‘global freezing.’ Though these studies have been subjected to a lot of criticism, it would be prudent to think about experiments and observation as means of validating these assertions.
