Global climate change ... NASA's eyes on the Earth: A warming world - global temperature update ... piecing together the temperature puzzle.
Each year, scientists at NASA'S Goddard Institute for Space Studies analyze global temperature data. The past year, 2009, tied as the second warmest year since global instrumental temperature records began 130 years ago. Worldwide, the mean temperature was 0.57°C (1.03°F) warmer than the 1951-1980 base period. And January 2000 to December 2009 came out as the warmest decade on record.

2009 was tied for the second warmest year in the modern record, a new NASA analysis of global surface temperature shows. The analysis, conducted by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City, also shows that in the Southern Hemisphere, 2009 was the warmest year since modern records began in 1880.
Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade, due to strong cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to near-record global temperatures. The past year was only a fraction of a degree cooler than 2005, the warmest year on record, and tied with a cluster of other years - 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007 1998 and 2007 - as the second warmest year since recordkeeping began.
"There's always an interest in the annual temperature numbers and on a given year's ranking, but usually that misses the point," said James Hansen, the director of GISS. "There's substantial year-to-year variability of global temperature caused by the tropical El Niño-La Niña cycle. But when we average temperature over five or ten years to minimize that variability, we find that global warming is continuing unabated."
January 2000 to December 2009 was the warmest decade on record. Throughout the last three decades, the GISS surface temperature record shows an upward trend of about 0.2°C (0.36°F) per decade. Since 1880, the year that modern scientific instrumentation became available to monitor temperatures precisely, a clear warming trend is present, though there was a leveling off between the 1940s and 1970s.
The near-record temperatures of 2009 occurred despite an unseasonably cool December in much of North America. High air pressures in the Arctic decreased the east-west flow of the jet stream, while also increasing its tendency to blow from north to south and draw cold air southward from the Arctic. This resulted in an unusual effect that caused frigid air from the Arctic to rush into North America and warmer mid-latitude air to shift toward the north.
"Of course, the contiguous 48 states cover only 1.5 percent of the world area, so the U.S. temperature does not affect the global temperature much,' said Hansen. In total, average global temperatures have increased by about 0.8°C (1.5°F) since 1880.
"That's the important number to keep in mind," said Gavin Schmidt, another GISS climatologist. "In contrast, the difference between, say, the second and sixth warmest years is trivial since the known uncertainty - or noise - in the temperature measurement is larger than some of the differences between the warmest years."
Decoding the Temperature Record: Climate scientists agree that rising levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases trap incoming heat near the surface of the Earth and are the key factors causing the rise in temperatures since 1880, but these gases are not the only factors that can impact global temperatures.

Commenti

  • I think there is little doubt that our climate is changing BUT WHAT is the truth? there is so much contrasting information. One problem for me is I DO NOT TRUST information that is given out by 'official' sources, it's like the story about the boy that cried 'WOLF' we are lied to THAT MUCH that 'official sources' have no credibility. For anyone that reads this .......... try this little exercise ............................. the next time your 'Government' decide to put out some information or make some sort of pledge or declaration then believe the EXACT OPPOSITE, try it out and I bet a few years down the line you will find that the exact opposite was MUCH nearer the truth.

  • 2019 now. the ice caps are still here. just fyi

    • The Hillbilly Hipster and there melting fast

  • What did you think humans are going to be here forever shut up and enjoy the ride.

  • The one fact is ,"We don't know what the temperature trends are normal for our planet over the long term and if mankind has any influence on it to a degree that it would be detrimental to the Earth."

  • Climate is always going to change!The point is we have virtually no control over the changes. You can’t believe the temperature quotes here.

  • J olly

  • 2019??

  • HA HA HA HOAX

  • dont waste your time, please do the good thing for good effect of the earth

  • Don't worry.... The arctic animals such as Polar Bears, etc will evolve to live without ice...

  • Global warming is not only real, it is biblical prophesy "pour out your saucer on the sun... He was power to scorch men with fire..." the part that is obviously a lie is that it is caused by co2.

  • Fucking accent is killing me every fucking second. Fuckkkk

  • you tube mi vinod kumar

  • I was looking for fruitcakes last Christmas and couldn't find any, but I'll know where to go next year!

  • wow this was posted in 2010 im watching in 2017 like if u are to

  • So all the pollution we pump out in the air is not doing anything? All the CO2 each year. Trillions of cubic tons is not affecting weather outside or anything? When the CO2 is out it's destroying our atmosphere and ozone layer which is making heat trapped in the planet warming it up. Each year temperatures slowly get warmer. May not be drastic as they say but it's happening. We are slowly destroying the earth.

    • Dr Bill No >_>

    • And then what...the Earth will move closer to the sun? Or will the sun move, or will co2 become 98'% of our atmosphere, like it is on venus? You got some sort of screw loose?

    • Allan White Well not like exploded dude. Look at Venus. CO2 is trapped which is warming up the planet and it's so close to the sun

    • CO2 is not a pollutant so you're wrong from the start.How is the earth going to be destroyed???

  • NASA has lost all credibility on climate science. They tell just enough truth to make their lies seem palatable. Let's start with their "scientific consensus" page on their website. "Scientific consensus" is an oxymoron. "Consensus" is political, not scientific. Global Warming made civilization possible 12,000 years ago. Today's warming period is the weakest of the 10 warm periods of the Holocene. Combine that with the Little Ice Age, and it suggests that the Holocene may already be shutting down, starting 3,000 years ago. Look up "1816 - the year without a summer." When the Holocene does shut down, we'll end up with 90,000 years without summers, rain, crops, food, and civilization. Something to think about when NASA scientists go waving their arms saying how awful warming is. For Pete's Sake! We still live in an Ice Age. Melt the damned ice already and help people move. The alternative is 7 Billion dead and no civilization.

    • global heating is not a problem up north, but it sucks down south as the middterranian, california and the southern states central america africa etc.. but there have been lots of small ice ages that has been devestating for the northern hemishpere

    • @Allan White You know the basic of using wikipedia? I hope, so maybe I was stupid to think that you have a brain and that you understand the basic of using wikipedia. 1st get a summurize information 2nd, go check the sources and dig more. So, I put you the wikipedia link, and do your job and go dig the sources... I can not send you 200 sources here. Are you saying that the temperature graph is wrong? if you say so, send me some credible sources.

    • Now Wikipedia has to be correct ,are you serious or just stupid?

    • Speaking about "Scientific Consensus", you clearly show of that you know nothing about science... but still come to talk about it here check that en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_consensus it is a so common wording which have a clear meaning that "Scientific Consensus" have even a wikipedia article.

    • I love how you guys knowing nothing about science are sure to be more intelligent than the 97% of scientist working on climate who tell you it happen, it is made by human. And I also love, how you can not even look at a graph and understand the trend. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_warming#/media/File:Global_Temperature_Anomaly.svg

  • They have only been measuring climate change since 1880 and the earth has been for millions of years.We believe that earth has evolved many times before man even existed on earth.Even if it was man made there's not much we or will about it.Will only make the richest people richer

    • Ironically, we live in an Ice Age and people are complaining about warmth. If we were to melt all the ice at the poles, then the Ice Age would be over, but nothing would scorch. Quite the contrary, the tropics would remain relatively unchanged, deserts would shrink from the greater volume of water vapor creating more rain worldwide, and the temperate zone would stretch all the way to the poles. Garden Earth! And doubly ironic is the fact that the Holocene is already overdue to end, with signs that it started winding down 3,000 years ago, and governments (UN, USA, UK) want to cool down the planet. Global Warming made civilization possible 12,000 years ago, and Global Cooling could undo all of that. Something to think about.

  • Now look at 2016. We're all going to die soon if we don't take actions.

    • Why are we going to die??????? you don't know i thought so.

    • Did you know that Global Warming made civilization possible 12,000 years ago and that our current interglacial of this ongoing Ice Age is overdue to end? Stopping Global Warming is like taping a man's mouth shut because he's hungry. Oops! Look up "1816 - the year without a summer." That'll give you an idea what Global Cooling will do. Governments want to do a lot more. When the Holocene ends, we'll get as much as -12C of cooling. Bye-bye civilization. And bye-bye 7 Billion humans. Global Warming will barely change tropics, shrink deserts, and extend the garden of the temperate zone all the way to the poles. Yes, sea level will rise, but moving people is far easier than growing crops in the snow to feed 7+ Billion people. So, when you say we're all going to die,... you're talking about Global Cooling that governments are planning to implement.

    • No in czech Republic is cold and colder than year 2015

    • @James Ch i don't think so. You can see how we're transforming the world.

    • you're too paranoid

  • the people have the power to stop this. If everyone would come in agreement and be firm and not go work for these companies , they would not even exist. Simple don't go work for these companies the earth is more important then a job or money. ,

    • Why would anyone stop Global Warming in an Ice Age. The danger of the next glacial period starting is gigantic. And if Global Warming can make civilization possible 12,000 years ago, Global Cooling can undo all of that goodness.

  • ***NASA Global Warming Facts*** www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/nasa-study-mass-gains-of-antarctic-ice-sheet-greater-than-losses You mugs are being conned…they say fools and their money are easy parted…

  • Now that corporations and banks are global in power and have been taking more and more global control international governments have concocted an idea of global warming to issue a carbon tax . The carbon tax is in reality a bullshit based study funded by government agencies to take more money from the corporations who they are currently competing with for global power. This made up scenario gives gangs of politicians a weapon of control over the gangs of international business people that run the planet. The study is funded by the governments who are trying to get leverage on the international business gangs. Most governments are bankrupt on the planet and the international business men have bankrupted them. Its a weapon of power concocted through false scientific data funded by politicians. How else can politicians fight back against the corporations that create everything on the planet, including money.

    • Good points. Biggest Oil Rockefellers started this scam, partly by changing the definition of "climate change." Climate has changed for nearly 4.5 billion years, but these days it means "recent, dangerous and man made." Global Warming made civilization possible 12,000 years ago, but we still live in an Ice Age. And the Holocene is overdue to end. Oops!

  • sertifikasi iso 14001-ems-sistem manajemen lingkungan,

  • Hey deniers-what's the deal with the glaciers?(Globally). Where are they going so fast? Greenland sure is getting greener!

    • global warming is good for us, end of most of the biggest close by sea capitalistic cities. we can start all over again :D

    • But more ice is really bad news. We live in an Ice Age and the current interglacial is overdue to end. Global Warming was able to make civilization possible for the first time in 90,000 years (at the start of the Holocene). Now that it's winding down, Global Cooling planned by governments could do the reverse. Oops!

    • +mike enjoy Are you aware that Antarctica is growing? www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/nasa-study-mass-gains-of-antarctic-ice-sheet-greater-than-losses You won't read that in your propaganda paper.

    • +mike enjoy Because of humans

  • Can someone explain me how co2 is heating our planet? No one on this damn youtube can not answer me? HOOOOOOWWWW?/??????

    • www.indystar.com/story/news/2018/01/03/how-science-links-cold-weather-and-global-warming/995553001/

    • if there is more co2 in the air more sunlight gets thrown back to earth and it's getting warmer

  • I find a little skepticism never hurts.

  • Global Warming / Cooling, Climate Change is all bullshit. At least the media sensationalized and politicized Climate Change is. It's all about money. Follow the money, people! Ever notice how it's cold... media will completely ignore any kind of cooling around the world, but when it's hot... the fear mongers, sheep and media is all over it, preaching "It's climate change, yadda, yadda, yadda." It's bullshit. The data that you see is bullshit to. It's a bunch of noise made to look like we're living in the hottest time ever.

    • Totally agree, the climate in Australia hasn't changed in 200 years.

    • I don't think u quite understand what ur saying

    • +Billy Staggs nasa is a government agency just like the IPCC, there scientists are told what to conclude based on political agenda not science. thy bend data and go back and revise weather history to fit the narrative, they have been caught red handed!

    • @Billy Staggs shut bitch you not living in our planet now dayd are hotter more storm and flood and that what we feel right noww.....wait a minute i forgot you ARE FUCKING ALIEN

  • wanna end global warming? youtube bill mollison global gardener the dry lands. and greening the desert. if your stuck in the city then youtube Ron Finley guerrilla gardener in L.A. add urben exploring, permaculture and john poole military tactics (applied to gardening just like sun tzu) if you think government is the answer start pressuring the land management to stop killing the wild horses and selling them as dog food and instead restore the land like Joel Salatin (lunatic farmer) making it a giant carbon sink in the great plains.

  • the current economic model depends on growth. Without growth it simply collapses. China has to grow at an insane 7% per year to just to avoid social chaos. How do you stop a system that depends on the exploitation of finite resources and the burning of fossil fuels? you can't. This system is like a monster with a mind of its own, with so many complicated components that stoping it becomes almost impossible. The near future does not look good. Many of the effects of climate change cannot be stopped and it is already too late. The correct thing is the keep trying, but can you convince Shell oil to stop drilling and go out of business when the entire corporate model is to simply turn a profit at the end of the quarter? no way. Get ready for a rough ride in the next 20 years. Beyond that, survival of the fittest. (if survival is even possible)

  • When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records - on which the entire panic ultimately rested - were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified. www.telegraph.co.uk/news/earth/environment/globalwarming/11395516/The-fiddling-with-temperature-data-is-the-biggest-science-scandal-ever.html

    • @Equs Narnd "The temperature field of the Earth as a whole is not thermodynamic ally representable by a single temperature" who claims that? it is just the average of the temperaturefield. what is their problem? when you hear "The average american family in 2012 consisted of 3.13 persons" do you wonder how a 0.13 human can survive? it is an average. you did not know that?

    • @Equs Narnd a paper? what does that mean? is it a scientific study in a peer reviewed scientific journal? "Moreover, they presume that small changes in it, up or down, have direct and unequivocal physical meaning." what does that even mean? what has this to do with the global average temperature? "While that statistic is nothing more than an average over tem peratures, it is regarded as the temperature, as if an average over temperatures is actually a temperature itself" that is absolute nonsense and no scientific publication on climatology claims that. it is an average temperature, that is very clear... the premise of the paper is wrong, why should i continue to read?

    • @Aanthanur DC "you think you can get the global average temperature by just addung[sic] all station data and divide it by the number of stations?" I do? I'd say you adduced that the way you get most of your information: Pulled it right out of your ass. But your in luck. Here's a link to a paper discussing more of what I believe. Have at it and when you've digested it, come back and tell me where I went wrong. www.uoguelph.ca/~rmckitri/research/globaltemp/GlobTemp.JNET.pdf

    • @Equs Narnd im sure the future generations will not be so ignorant and paranoid as you are. they will understand what is needed to compile a proper datasets.you think you can get the global average temperature by just addung all station data and divide it by the number of stations?

  • One word. Cycle!!!!

  • is this good science ,,,,,,

  • Is it really there is an global warming on earth or it is a pshygolocical war system within Nato and Varşova? Earth become sometimes to the timeline of ice age.?..Do we really go to other planet if this earth become a bad place...? if human being make love and more children from each if really earth become a hell place or it is a war thinking system in each human being to make other race do not make him or her a baby each other

  • This video is pure deception. No mention of the fact that 100 years is a blink of an eye in geological terms. No mention of the fact that temperature data extracted from ice core samples indicates that temperatures have been fluctuating all over the map for as far as we can look back (400,000 years). I think it's a ploy to raise our taxes and Libertards are lapping it up.

    • www.breitbart.com/london/2015/12/28/the-eu-is-to-blame-for-britains-flood-disaster/

    • Hippie chick runs away crying…...

    • www.scientificamerican.com/article/solar-farms-threaten-birds/ Forgive them Lord for they know not what they do….

  • So then what caused the end of the ice age?

  • This global warming stuff is either an attempt to keep us from developing our economy and capitalism or just a way that the state can gain more power through taxation. It might be a fact but it's not nearly as bad as people think.

    • S A D 2002 Global warming is not drastic at all. Just pretty slow

    • @Not A Crybaby well i am also very interested in climatology. but that alone doesn0t mean i know what i am talking about. but i did do alot of reading on the topic. based on what do you conclude that " it's not nearly as bad as people think." what do people think? i don't really listen much to what people think about this topic. i care much more what scientists researched about this topic and what they concluded. and i take a look at the evidence they publish in the scientific literature.

    • @Aanthanur DC climate is one of the things I am genuinely interested in. so I should know what I am talking about.

    • "It might be a fact but it's not nearly as bad as people think." what is your field of expertise?

  • At least this guy is realistic in the beginning. The ice caps have melted before and they will melt again. We might be shaving of a few years but it is inevitable no matter what we do. 5 ice ages and who knkws how many complete melts. We should cut down on fossil fuel because when it runs out shits going to get real. Look at new york and two days of no fuel delivery. Set lain island back a whole month. Took hours in line to refuel

  • NASA climatologists have been trying to prove this crap for decades. According to some of their reports in the 1980s, Cape Canavaeral in Florida should be underwater by now, and it is not. Hurricanes were supposed to be more violent, and they haven't been. The Old Farmer's Almanac has beaten IPCC and NASA predictions for 11 years running. Bangladesh was supposed to be underwater by the 1990s, and it's not. Do yourself a credibility favor, NASA, fund climate change skeptics, as well as climate change salesmen, and see who wins.

    • @Merlin5by5 oh let me guess, you are one of the anti science nutters that believes there was no warming in the past 18 years?

    • @Aanthanur DC Good, kinda matches the IPCC links to the last 18 years of climate temperatures.

    • @Merlin5by5 your links to the IPCC do not support your claims.

    • @Aanthanur DC I quoted the IPCC twice. Their IPCC web URL is right on my references. You can squeal about how it doesn't prove my case, but you can't admit it doesn't exist.

    • @Merlin5by5 no you didn't.

  • If the Earth is over 3 billion years old, and you measure between the 1880's and now to determine a "warming trend," then (2014-1880)/3,000,000,000 * 100 = 0.00000046%. That is, you're using 4.6 millionths of 1 percent of total time to determine a "warming trend." That ain't science, kid. We actual scientists would be extremely charitable in calling that "insufficient data." And you don't make decisions or conclusions based on insufficient data.

    • @Kcorb Ydrah Infinitesimal means really small. You mean an infinitely larger amount of qualifications. Thought I'd help you out.

    • So Roger.....How many space shuttles have you successfully launched into space, and how many moon landings do you claim?.....Huh Kid? I think the boys that put this short educational video together has a few more qualifications than you. And when I say a few, I mean like pretty much an infinitesimal amount of more qualifications than you. Stop being a douche bag and trying to sound like you know more than NASA. It's pathetic......and sad.

    • @Hello_Everyone atleast im not so ignorant like you are.

    • @Aanthanur DC They shook the crazy tree and you came loose.

    • @Hello_Everyone who analyzed it? how did they reconstruct the temperatures? i showed you the database of more than 100 million years of reconstructed climatic data from all over the planet. your graph, of which you know absolutely nothing about is also in there, there you can find all that information about the scientists that did it and analyzed it. this is all considered when experts talk about climate change. and here you are pointing to one graph from one location and you ignore all the rest of data , all the research the very same scientists and many more have done, and you think you are so fucking clever because you get all your info from the deniers and you have absolutely no clue about the science you are arguing against. you are a clown.

  • Please help us out, were working on the global warming and surveys really helps us, in this survery there are only 2 questions, that wont take more than a minute, but will mean litteraly the world to us, please help us. www.surveymonkey.com/s/8PJ7TDG

  • This video is full of Information, Thanks to all the Scientists and their Studies!

  • @juggalo2112 and what caused the last deglaciation? and what feedback amplified the initial warming so all the ice could melt?

    • @juggalo2112 yes

    • @Aanthanur DC Lol, do you even know when the last ice age was? either your trolling or your as dumb as a sack of hammers.NEXT!!

  • What can we do to speed up the global warming? I'm freezing over here.

    • jsut continue as u have been doing, its gotta be warmer.

  • Wow. This video is just full of mis information.

    • @Justwantahover You can measure the thermal energy of a Bumblebee farting in an aircraft hangar but is it significant? 18 years of no statistically significant global warming kind of destroys your position ~ blam.

    • @UKIPPER You would be able to measure it, if you had the right equipment. They can measure the doppler of stars going walking speed closer or away from earth.

    • @Justwantahover Get a bottle yourself and fill it with normal air and add 0.012% extra CO2 to it and see what you can measure ~ Jeeez 0.012% ffs less than an Ant fart.

    • @UKIPPER What has the past got to do with anything? Is that evidence that humans are not a factor. PROVE TO ME THAT HUMANS ARE NOT A FACTOR! If that is what you dearly believe. The Mythbusters experiment went up a whole degree. Even if it was pure co2, that's a lot for a chamber in the sun. But they said it was added to the air, in the chamber. Nothing to do with what happened thousands of yrs ago.

    • @Justwantahover Kobashi, High variability of Greenland surface temperature over the past 4000 years estimated from trapped air in an ice core. Geophysical Research Letters 38: 10.1029/2011GL049444. ''the current decadal average surface temperature at the summit is as warm as in the 1930s-1940s, and there was another similarly warm period in the 1140s (Medieval Warm Period)," indicating that "the present decade is not outside the envelope of variability of the last 1000 years." In fact, as shown in their Figure 1, a portion of which has been adapted and reproduced below, they say that "excluding the last millennium," there were fully "72 decades warmer than the present one, in which mean temperatures were 1.0 to 1.5°C warmer," and that during two centennial intervals, average temperatures "were nearly 1.0°C warmer than the present decade."

  • Maybe we should just blow the Earth out of existence. Problem solved, no globe no global warming.

    • That was a stupid idea 2 years ago, and it has aged poorly.

    • Good Thinking Batman

  • First of all they should make Hydrogen fuel cars affordable, stricter rules regarding Air-conditioners,not more than 2 Air-conditioners per house,Plant trees in barren areas, segregation of wet and dry waste, composting, Gobar gas,reduce products, reuse products,recycle products, use of solar heater,solar cooker,solar batteries and recently they have made batteries running from sugar which would likely be made available in 2017. But no one seems to bother.People are so irresponsible.The demand for new products, people keep buying and buying more things. Use of ACs has increased here in my city and its only becoming hotter and hotter every year.

    • +póg mo thóin ikr

    • @Jesper Henriksson Climate has always changed and always will..it is only recently that man has the ability to measure these minute temperature fluctuations …past records show warmer conditions yet doomsayers like yourself have sleepless nights for nothing.

    • @Not A Crybaby We're all tired of the climate change, that's what.

    • @Jesper Henriksson what about the media shows the decay of our property rights.

    • @Not A Crybaby But we do, if you let's say lived in England during the 1800s you wouldn't have any clue about what's going on, we saw things in other ways back then. It is therefore our responsibilty to change the way things is, we sqrewed up but we might still fix it. There are so many easy ways of doing this, we can start of by showing news about this instead of Ebola because we the population in Sweden (were I live) don't have that as threat.

  • Gosh, you are all so stupid idiots, even the scientists who discuss about co². We had higher concentration in the past and all it will do is speeding up the growth of plants. But what we also have is the second law of thermodynamics. So now start to think How many bulbs, cars, electronics, machinery and whatever else does constantly produce heat on earth every day? Trillions! It's the same like you put a self heating hot stone into a tank with cold water, at some point in the future the water will have the same temperature as the stone. I can promise you that. We heat up earth's atmosphere because of the constant use of energy to run our toys. That's all, not a miracle or magic nor unbelievable powers of gases just simple physic. That's also the reason why northern hemisphere warms faster up than soutern hemispere, because of more people in the northern hemisphere. And what do more people use? More energy to run more heat producing devices Think about it, no one ever claims that as a source for global warming.

    • @infinityand0 I think you ought to do some research bud because the UHI effect has proved that the obvious fact that whatever fuel is burned it heats the atmosphere.

    • @infinityand0 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed_system#In_thermodynamics and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entropy

    • Did you even read my post before? i explained why earth is a closed system in my own words and just posted the second answer to show you there are people who say the same. and btw. * Any system that has energy flowing across the boundary into and out of the system can not be a closed system.* <<< That is a closed system, only matter can't cross the boundary, noone said energy can't. Energy CAN go in AND out of a closed system. In an open system energy AND matter can cross the boundary. Have you ever seen our oceans spilled into space? NOOO! Because the boundary of Earth is the gravitational field. No Material can leave Earth without the use of huge amounts of Energy!!!! <<< That is a closed system. Either you are the most annoying troll on earth, just plain stupid or in total lack of common sense. Move along please, before i call you names!

    • @Sexzessiv No, you clearly haven't read any books on the fundamentals thermodynamics, and you completely plagiarized your answer from this website: www.uvm.edu/~cmehrten/courses/earthhist/Earth%20Closed%20System.pdf ,and also faculty.cas.usf.edu/dhaynie/BT/index_files/Page2287.htm This reveals your lack of knowledge and your desperation and your inability to recognize the problems. Any system that has energy flowing across the boundary into and out of the system can not be a closed system. That just simply does not work. Stop commenting. You are making a complete idiot out of yourself. And quit plagiarizing other's writings unearth sciences (not thermodynamics), BTW, the pedagogy in earth sciences is that the earth is a closed system with respect to matter and an open system with respect to energy, You are completely out of your depth.

    • I did, plenty, and there are 3 types of systems: Isolated: no matter or energy enters or leaves Closed: energy enters and leaves but material does not (without help) Open: both energy and matter enter and leave (without help) The Earth is a closed system where materials cycle between the lithosphere (Earth), atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere We all know that sunlight heats the surface of Earth. For most practical purposes, however, Earth is a closed system. Why is that? The mass of the planet is essentially constant in time. Molecules in our atmosphere are attracted to Earth by gravity and do not migrate off into space.

  • We only have 1 earth. Lets save it,together!

    • Save the earth. Ha ha ha ha ha!

    • Save it from what???? do you think we are going to fry???

    • @Justwantahover 30% or 1 1/100th of 1%. Run for the hills! It's "accelerating" to 1.1/100ththe of 1%. We're all gonna die!

    • @Hello_Everyone The earth's atmosphere is a chamber and there has been a 30% increase in co2 content since the cowboy days (of witch you belong) and it's in sunlight (half the time) but constantly. How is that different to the Mythbusters experiment? You say we talk about one-hundredth of a degree. The Mythbusters experiment went up a full degree. But they had really fine calibrated thermometers for demonstration purpose. I only stick to my 3 points and nothing else. To me this is known and is hard evidence. 1) 30% increase in co2 content since 150 years. 2) It's been increasing at an accelerating rate. 3) The mythbusters experiment that has been repeated several times on YT by different people. You have nothing that is peer reviewed (or at least hardly anything) and I have my 3 points of hard evidence. If it's not peer reviewed I simply block my ears and go la la la (like you do with peer-reviewed stuff and hard evidence).

    • Mythbuster experiment = localized. Earth = global. Apples to oranges. Like arguing with a child.

  • Here's a good question. If global warming is caused by humans, how did the last ice age end? ANSWER: Global Warming! Which has been happening on this planet well before humans showed up. The planet naturally goes through cycles of heating and cooling. Has been for millennia. Its time for global warming zealots to pull their heads out of their collective asses and embrace reality. Global warming will happen no matter what we do. Always has, always will. NEXT!!!

    • juggalo2112 youre a dumbass american, (OHHH MY NAMD IS JUGALLO I BELIVE IN DONALD TRUMP OHHHH) FUCK YOU MAN YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING LEARN FACTS!!!!!!!!! I HOPE YOU WILL SAY ”im sorry” WHEN ITS TOO HOT TO GO OUTSIDE AND YOUR HOUSE IS UNDER WATER BITCH!

  • FACT: Antarctic sea ice coverage reached record levels for April 2014, hitting 3.5 million square miles - the largest on record. Result? Al Gore and his mindless minions are fucking morons. NEXT!!!

  • What a load of shit. I recently read an interesting article about colonizing Mars. The article also had a video 3 min in the video it was talking about how we had the technology to scrub the Mars atmosphere to have acceptable levels of carbon dioxide aka co2. If we can scrub Mars atmosphere to have acceptable levels of co2 why are we not doing here if this global worming shit is such a problem.

    • Because it isn't a problem. It's just a ploy to raise your taxes.

    • *Dolphfren* you tell me! the problem is, it is a problem,but too many don't want to recognise it as one. because money, because man's stupidity and arrogance. oh sorry did you think humans were logical reasonable understanding beings? LOL you have much to learn then.

    • That article does not prove that global warming is not real but that the technology they talk about is just a theory without evidence which will eventually fade away like all the other interesting ideas about Mars.

  • Humans are stupid, we keep destroying our own planet ecologically, and when it's too late, we find out we made a mistake, wow, no wonder we can't find intelligent life anywhere else, the other intelligent life forms in our universe fleed from our corruption!

    • too late for what?? to freeze or to cook? you can't have it both ways.

  • What if one vulcano emits a thousand times more CO2 with one breakout than the humanity in one year?? No question, caring about the environment is absolutely important for our generation. But why the hell is everyone reducing it on our CO2 balance, if one single natural disaster/event would (and will) shoot down all the efforts done so far? Why don't they propagate how to reduce our ressource consumption and try to find ways to deal with a warmer climate? Evolution tells us, we freaking need to adapt to new circumstances!

    • Volcanoes emit less than 1% of CO2 compared to burning fossil fuels.

    • @Not A Crybaby you might be right. :)

    • except that no vulcano can emot so much CO2 at once.

    • I can't agree with you more.

  • The alarmists fail to examine basic facts, like the IPCC's projection has failed to match reality. If the instrument record does not match the models, then the theory is false. The lowest projected global mean temperature increase by the IPCC is more than 2ºC per century, the same projection made since the first report in 1995. The mean temp graphs in the OP and HADCRUT 4 instrument data shows 0.7º C warming since 1898. Clearly the " science" disproves the theory. Tell us all some more about science, fucking liars.

  • Fire loads of trees in the air then! Trees eat co2 right? At least co2 would change into o2

  • I don't want ignorant people to live on this planet anymore.. they would still believe global warming is a hoax even if the sun melts their faces off :S Heck even my atheist boss believes its a hoax, just 'cuz he came across a documental saying there's no such thing as global warming.. well i guess its easier believing nothing is wrong than to have a summer beach-vacation at the poles... or living underground and coming out at night..yeah that'd be weird.. better not believe in global warming.. i mean we still have a zombie apocalypse to look forward to.

  • Global warming is a hoax created by the jews and politically funded scientists/environmentalists, aided by Al Gore and many others to put cap and trade in place for monetary gain

  • The fact of rising temperature trends is something that should catch everyones eye that something needs to be done

    • Making what worse??? Southern Australia has just had ANOTHER very mild summer .I thought it was going to get hotter not colder???

    • Yes, we demand a global government and all social and economic freedoms need to be abolished for the sake of the eartg

    • So human interaction is only making it worse, there is a way we can at least limit the holes in the ozone layer by decreasing the use of those gases

    • @Robert Brown Global warming has always moved in a cyclical motion during past time and within that has been great climate change with zero human interaction.

    • @Robert Brown hasn't there always been a hole in the ozone layer though? We can't really prevent that.
