Human caused Climate Change is real – American Meteorological Society

American Meteorological Society confirms Climate Change and Man’s Role http://www.enn.com/pollution/article/44884 Gina-Marie Cheeseman,  August 31, 2012  Weathercasters in the U.S. not only tend to not ever mention climate change, but the majority of them do not even believe it is human-caused, as an article I recently wrote shows. However, that may change.
The American Meteorological Society (AMS) released an official position statement on climate change this week which not only said that it is occurring, but it is human-caused. What is so great about the statement by the AMS is that it includes so much information about climate change, including that there is scientific consensus. The AMS makes it clear that the statement is “based on the peer-reviewed scientific literature and is consistent with the vast weight of current scientific understanding.”
The statement details how the climate is changing, both in the U.S. and around the world. The changes listed include increases in globally averaged air and ocean temperatures, the widespread melting of snow and ice, and the rising of globally averaged sea level. As the statement puts it, “Warming of the climate system now is unequivocal, according to many different kinds of evidence.” That is not good news for the world’s population, but it is good news that the AMS is acknowledging that climate change is real and is occurring.

The statement goes in to detail about the effects of climate change, which include temperature increases. All of the 10 warmest years in the global temperature records up to 2011 have occurred since 1997, and 2005 and 2010 were the warmest years in more than a century of global records. Most of the observed warming in the U.S. has occurred in the West and in Alaska, but for the country as a whole there have been twice as many record daily high temperatures  compared to record daily low temperatures in the first decade of the 21st century. Read more at ENN Affiliate, TriplePundit.

  1. I believe that the radiation released from Japan’s nuclear crisis contributed hugely to global warming in 2011 and 2012. Weather-records were broken for (1) heat; (2) storms; (3) drought in the U.S. and abroad. Also, heating of the waters by nuclear power plantsduring their daily operations, imo, also contribute hugely to global warming. Warmer waters=more storms.

    I call it “Nuclear Summer.”

    I have never felt such heat as I have last year and this year.
