Do you think Global Warming is affecting our weather and ozone layer?

Alot of attention has been given to Global Warming from Senator, Movie stars and even cars are being build to help the enviroment (Hybrids), but do you really think it's affecting our WORLD??

    Yes, it's affecting our world.

    However, please note that Global Warming and Ozone Layer depletion are completely different.

    Global Warming is the increase of the average temperature of the Earth. This is mostly caused by Carbon Dioxide released into the atmosphere by either humans through burning fossil fuels, and also from the earth itself, like from volcanoes and animals breathing.

    Ozone depletion is the layer of ozone high up in the Earth's atmosphere being depleted by CFCs. CFCs are made from old aerosol cans and old refrigerators. Over a decade ago scientists discovered the problem, and people did something about it. Now, CFCs are banned from basically every country in the world, and the layer is slowly restoring itself.

    So Global Warming is a large issue that is constantly getting bigger mostly due to the fact a lot of people aren't doing anything about it, and lots of people don't even believe there is Global Warming.

    Ozone depletion is and was an issue, but since fast and dramatic action was taken, severe effects were mostly avoided, and now there is little concern over it, since CFCs are rare since their ban.

    So DON'T confuse Global Warming and Ozone depletion, they're very different!

    Since 3 of 4 responders so far think there is no problem, then we as a race have a very short time to survive. The future will be comprised of trying to hold back the ocean, suffering tornadoes year after year, incurring cataracts and cancer. Because no matter what we cover ourselves with, we cannot cover our food supplies. So I'll go with "caves" for shelters and "animal skins" for clothing. Pretty much where those 3 responders are mentally now.

    To put it simply NO.

    The Global warming hysteria is the biggest scam ever placed on the everyone. Follow the money trail and you will see its all about money and the control of it. The earth only a few hundred years ago was much warmer than today. We are simply in a warming cycle, and to think we have that much influence on this plant shows our vanity and ignorance of the world around us. Please note the fact that Mars is warming up at the same rate earth is and no one is paying much attention to it, as it doesn't fit in to the "global warming" agenda.

    I think this says it best:

    Water vapor constitutes Earth's most significant greenhouse gas, accounting for about 95% of Earth's greenhouse effect. Interestingly, many "facts and figures' regarding global warming completely ignore the powerful effects of water vapor in the greenhouse system, carelessly (perhaps, deliberately) overstating human impacts as much as 20-fold.

    Water vapor is 99.999% of natural origin. Other atmospheric greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and miscellaneous other gases (CFC's, etc.), are also mostly of natural origin (except for the latter, which is mostly anthropogenic).

    Human activites contribute slightly to greenhouse gas concentrations through farming, manufacturing, power generation, and transportation. However, these emissions are so dwarfed in comparison to emissions from natural sources we can do nothing about, that even the most costly efforts to limit human emissions would have a very small-- perhaps undetectable-- effect on global climate.

    It absolutely is. take a look at the shift in weather patterns across the entire world and the extreme weather facing every part of the country. whether extreme hurricanes in places like new york or california or milder temperatures in the winter or no snowfall in areas that expect it. the extreme shifts are affecting our ozone and temperature. it is easy to fix and control we just need to act as a responsible civilization and not deny that things like this are occuring.

    Check out heat records and pay attention to the year. many, many heat records were set within the last 10 years or so. So, yes, it is affecting us. But don't confuse climate and weather. Having a cold spell or heat wave does not prove that the climate is changing or not changing.

    Yes. The changes are obvious. Check out an island chain called the Maldives. They are slowly going underwater due to rising sea levels.

    Also check out the retreating glaciers, worldwide...

    or the change in weather patterns.

    Of course it is! It is depleting our ozone layer. It is changing our weather patterns. It is changing the amount of surviving insects during winter. It is causing the polar ice caps to dump excessive amounts of fresh water into our oceans.

  • Yes.

    More and more trees are being cut down for various reasons, therefore we have fewer trees to recycle the carbon dioxide exhaled by vehicles and people.

    This carbon monoxide forms a layer that magnifies heat and UV rays so, yes, we ARE affected.

    The world, definitely. You see effects everywhere, ancient glaciers melting, crop belts moving, heat waves, and so forth.
