Report Shows Damaging Impact of Climate Change in 2015

2015 was a record year for the damaging impacts of climate change all across the globe. Mankind is now looking at a present with weather conditions and rising sea levels that have never before been seen. It’s evident we must take the appropriate measures to curb the detrimental effects that have resulted from misuse and abuse of our planet’s resources.

2015 Was the Warmest Year on Record Since the 1800s

In the recent report, State of the Climate, scientists and environmental experts reported that the Earth had the highest temperatures since the mid-19th century — and not just because of the Sun. These temperatures were influenced by the effects of global warming and the most intense El Niño weather phenomenon since 1950. Not only was it the hottest year in over 100 years, but greenhouse gases and sea levels also reached record highs.

The Earth also saw more strange and intense weather anomalies than ever before — and not simply in isolated areas. This interactive map shows them scattered all across the globe, illustrating the all-encompassing effects that climate change has on the world population.

We Can No Longer Be Silent

The argument by some conservatives that climate change is a myth can hardly be supported by any type of fluff evidence anymore.

Leading climatologist, Michael Mann, told the Guardian in an interview, “The impacts of climate change are no longer subtle. They are playing out for us in real time. The 2015 numbers drive that home.” While there is a positive to implausible deniability that climate change is real, the danger in his statement reflects the urgent pace at which world leaders must adapt in the coming months and years to combat the negative impact humans have had on the planet.

As a so called radical Conservative I take exception to the comment about Conservatives calling global warming a myth. We can and do read science material, and believe the climate has changes since the last mini ice age. We do not believe taxing working people to pay firms to go bankrupt like the Obama investments in solar panels. When we suggest things like solar lanterns and rocket stoves or solar stoves be sent to Africa we are told it is too little, but several billion tax dollars will cure the problem. Get the graft, corruption, and political cronyism out of the fix and I will be on board big time. Do not use articles here to push a political agenda.
