Please note this review focuses more on the issue about man's involvement in global warming rather than whether it is an urgent danger. This is the only review subject I could put it under, so please rate based on the content rather than its relation to the title. Thank you and enjoy.
Global warming is a very delicate and complex subject; far beyond the understanding of a naïve 18 year old, but I have decided to tackle the matter based on my opinions and evidence I have found from various sources. I cannot say that I am writing this without bias as I fully support the controversial, yet logical views that Mankind has a relatively minute affect on climate change and that we cannot prevent nor slow the effect of Global Warming simply by reducing our so called 'carbon footprints'. In no way am I denying the existence of an increasing global temperature, but instead indicating that this may not be an unusual concept as there is evidence promoting similar activity in the past. I hope you find this review both entertaining and thought provoking.
Climate, as you well should know, is governed by millions of factors and, although many would disagree with me, I describe weather as chaos. To very briefly describe what I mean by chaos; it is a mathematical theory, 'Chaos Theory', that dictates many occurrences as unpredictable and unstable phenomenon. It goes much deeper than that and becomes far more complicated than I need describe it for the purpose of my review. Basically Chaos Theory can be applied to weather forecasting, as although we do have a fair level of understanding on factors influencing the weather, there is still a margin of error associated with the unpredictable chaos that throws the equations out of context. This makes accurately predicting the weather impossible, which makes me wonder how we can predict exactly what is going to happen in the next 50 years or so regarding the climate. Maybe we shouldn't be as worried as we are being made to feel, but then it could swing the other way as well and perhaps we should be more worried about our future on this planet. I ask the question; what are we going to do about it? Well to be honest I don't really think there is much we can do because if we don't really know what exactly the climate is doing, then how can it be reasonable to take strong enough action to counteract these forecasts?
Many of the weather simulations are strongly based on increasing Carbon Emissions being the main cause for increasing global temperature; the rate of increase in carbon emissions is based on the predicted increase in mankind's 'carbon footprint'. I cannot see how this can be deemed an accurate way of making these assumptions as the natural world is responsible for more than 99% of all greenhouse gases (including carbon). There are even claims that the increase in Carbon in the atmosphere is actually a product of increasing global temperature rather than the cause. The graph in my review picture shows that the temperature change slightly precedes the change in CO2.
