Are We Losing the Global Warming Fight?

For so long global warming was kept out of the news. Facts and research wasn't published and the terms “climate change” and “global warming” weren't used. They were considered taboo. Today however global warming is becoming an unavoidable reality and with CO2 emissions at an all time high in 2012 the media is starting to speak out. Simultaneously, carbon emissions have had a role in more dry spells, heat waves, tropical storms, tornadoes and agricultural blights than ever before. The connection b
between these “natural” occurrences and how abnormal they actually are compared to the past, is not clearly connected to global warming, but anyone with a bit of common sense can see that extreme weather must be tied to our ever-higher CO2 emissions and thinned atmospheric layer. The same goes for the rising sea levels, that have increased between 15 to 20 centimeters in the past century, with rapid acceleration over the past ten years. This can be directly tied to the ice in the North and South poles melting with increasing rapidity. Despite all this, the countries with a major (as such more damaging) role in climate change refuse to change their strategies. Hopefully journalism can put pressure on them and garner public opinion.
