Surprise! Global Warming will Freeze All of Us to Death

If global warming proponents are right, then we're all doomed and life on Earth as we know it would cease to exist - but the manner by which it will happen may surprise you. See, the words "global warming" conjure up images of a hot and scorched Earth, but the end may actually be the opposite: encased in snow and ice.

Global Warming is an event that could possibly cause melting of the polar ice caps, rising sea levels, raised temperatures, and widespread famine. These are all good reasons to not invite Global Warming to a party. What this potential catastrophe has in destructive power, it lacks in creativity. The earth will keep getting warmer and we’ll all be in trouble – pretty simple, right? Luckily, people from the future have sent a robot back in time to warn us about Global Warming: Al Gore.

Hearing ‘Global Warming’ and thinking ‘freezing to death’ would be like hearing ‘Steve Jobs’ and not thinking ‘black turtleneck’. But it’s very possible that a mass melting of the northern ice caps would send a great deal of cold water into the Gulf Stream currents – currents which take warm water into the northern hemisphere (like the UK) keeping it as habitable as it is today. Without these currents, areas like England could reach temperatures comparable to another area of the same latitude: Canada.

If global warming disrupts these currents, temperatures in these northern areas will plummet and the land might even become covered in ice. If there is enough ice, there is an increase in albeado, the reflection of sunlight off light colored surfaces. This leads to a further reduction in temperature, creating more ice and possibly a runaway, ‘snowball earth’ scenario. The only way to get out of such a hellish ice prison is to wait for volcanoes to pump out enough C02 to melt the ice. In the end, it’s pretty clear that whether it’s saving us or killing us, C02 is a massive dick.

@nutbastard and lulu: Thanks for putting my thoughts into words.

That being said, I get "fired up" enough with this ridiculous topic on my news websites, what the heck is it doing here on neatorama?

Come on neatorama, cut this crap out!

Also, the Sun's effect on global climate change is known and studied, and is not the only factor in climate change. The angle of the Sun, the tilt of the Earth, and the shape of the Earth's orbit all effect Earth's temperature in 100k, 40k, and 20k year intervals (I don't care to bring out my notes at the moment to clarify which belongs to which). Scientists are worried about positive and negative feedbacks, which take the natural warming and cooling periods of the Earth and drastically warp them. Humans contribute greatly to the Carbon Dioxide feedback, and what is currently being studied is the long-term effects of this in the whole system. It's easy to just claim that Scientists are just "in it for the money", but I assure you that the climate is a system so freakin' complex that it would take thousands of Scientists YEARS to understand. Hey! wait, that's what we have! Just sit back and relax folks. Try driving your cars and eating less meat. We'll all be better off for it.

None of you are scientist, nor do you know what you are talking about. Anthropogenic causes of global warming (climate change) are understood to be a factor in climate change, just how much is to be studied further. All of you who claim that scientists "change their opinions with their diapers" do not understand that the scientists are working with DATA, and we accrue MORE DATA over time, thus we are able to refine our theories. This does not discredit Science, it actually makes Science amazingly powerful and important.

The earth's climate changes all the time. Sometimes it's warmer than others, period. It's not about cars or how many kids we have. It's the SUN.

Scientists are hyping their fake theories because they make HUGE money off of it - grants, etc. And people like Gore are doing the same, making MONEY spreading doom and gloom.

Climate change is logical and normal and not MAN's fault. Deal with it.
