Global Warming

12:51 PM

Statement under the following may be startled at the same time make us staring. He read: "The statement that global warming is indeed real tosh. The statement was repeated by re-convince the activists to simultaneously menakut-nakuti public that climate change will become a catastrophe, and activity human main causes." The senator said the U.S. from the Republic Party, James Inhofe, who is also the Chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee U.S. Senate, a year ago.

The statement was strengthened with the statement of the Director of NASA Michael Griffin in an interview with local radio in the U.S. has not been this long, that shows the director of the doubt that global warming is the biggest challenge that humanity must be addressed. In these interviews, one of the passages and statements that Griffin is a much quoted, "The climate at this time the earth's climate is the best we ever had."

Is global warming really is the result of human ulah too greedily exploit the earth and keep the balance of nature careless? Is global warming and climate change is the most important things that must be overcome man?

Inhofe out various facts and quote to support the argument. According to him, the media play an important role in the issues that animate this is not true. He also revealed penelusurannya against some media reports as a leading Newsweek, Time Magazine, New York Daily Times, Chicago Tribune, and the Journal Science News. Didapatinya, media in the era of an 1900-year is to report concerns coming century will be ice, not heating or melelehnya ice. Up to the period from 1920 to 1930-an until the end of the 1970s, leading media in the U.S. is still very incentive to report hazards and proclaim the changes the earth into a ball ice.

He was harassing the Kyoto Protocol, a protocol signed by most countries in the hollow earth is to reduce the emissions of gas-forming gas in the glass house which the U.S. rejected the sign, and the agreement as a solution that does not have meaning in order to reduce the emissions of gas-gas harmful to earth's atmosphere. According to him, the most effective way to reduce the gases is the use of gas cleaning equipment and technology more efficient for the gas is scattered to space.

Inhofe statement but it did not have political motives menyurutkan global movement in the world that the earth's warming threat seriously and must be evident from diperangi now by all parties. Inhofe, politicians from the Republic, as well as U.S. President George W. Bush is also from the Republic, clearly does not want their terusik terusik turbulence must press emissions of greenhouse gases in the U.S. that most of the power generated from fossil berenergi (oil, coal).

Not only that Bush and Inhofe be "foolish" to climate change. More than 17 thousand scientists - two thousand more are fisikawan, geofisikawan, a climate expert, meteorologist, and environmental-experts who signed the petition circulated by Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine in the U.S.. One sentence in the petition that states, "There is no scientific evidence that release carbon dioxide gas (CO2), metana (CH4), and gas-greenhouse gases that cause the heating temperature of the acute damage to the earth and the earth's climate."

Apart from the fact that political statements and disclosed above, the following facts of this talk is far more solid and real, to show which direction of climate change on earth and will go empty.


We start from a far with us, arctic Sea. Most of the ocean is known as the ocean ice. Scientists who observed the changes in sea ice this summer to record the occurrence of increased two times faster than the global warming. Since 1980, ocean ice, which is located in the arctic region of Europe has been between 20-30 percent melt.

Still in Europe, the mountains Alpens which was most of the snow veiled the deterioration of severe snow deposit. Eight of the nine areas of glacier / glacier shows a significant degree of damage and within a century has lost a third of the ice.

Not only in Europe, the entire plateau in the world that is known of the mountain has melted the ice. Snow on the mountain's highest peak in Africa, Kilimanjaro, roll each month not less than 300 cubic meters. Mountain that is located in Tanzania is suffering from severe snow kebotakan when comparing the aerial photo taken in 1974, 1990, and 2001. In the observation period of one century, at the top of the mountain snow melt until it reaches 82%. When the snow is no longer endure perch atop the mountain, the mountain may have changed, because the Kilimanjaro in the local language means mountain or a mountain of white luminous.

Let's move to the area that bears a lot of artists, football, South America. Snow in countries such as berdataran high as Argentina, Peru, Chile also decreased dramatically. Andes mountains, a snow paradise in the world, experiencing pelelehan snow to the mountain top which is very significant. Between the years 1963 to 1978, snow melt an average of 4 meters per year, and since 1995 until now, snow pelelehan achieve speed 30.1 meters per year in the entire region that contains the glacier. Meanwhile, in Venezuela, the country most of Miss World, of 6 of the glacier in the country in 1972, now only have two more, and will be lost at least 10 years from now.

Consequence of the increase is melelehnya snow surface sea water, first in the area. Brazilian soccer in the country, the coastline disappeared into the sea around the average 1.8 meters per year in the period between 1915 to 1950 and increased to 2.4 meters per year in the period of ten years between 1985-1995.

What's going on in Asia, also in Indonesia, due to global warming? The same as that going on in other continents, snow, snow in the highlands of Asia have dramatically pelelehan at once dramatic. Himalaya, the highest mountain in the world to become a bag of water frozen in the "roof of heaven" saljunya continue to lose consistently. Glacier-glacier in the Himalaya Mountains in countries such as India, Tibet, Bhutan, China, terdegradasi with very quickly. Seven major rivers in Asia that derive water from the Himalaya Gangga, Indus, Brahmaputra, Mekong, Thanlwin, Yangtze, Yellow River and threatened the existence result in hundreds of millions of people in the area along the river-water.

Not only in South Asia, snow in Central Asia that also hold disappeared one by one. That also happened in the Puncak Jaya, Papua, the only high mountain regions in Indonesia that have snow. When the aerial photo in 1972 shows the top of the mountain is almost entirely covered snow, mountain peak that now only contains a mere rocks and trees. This means no more snow there.

Pelelehan es revealed that the new part of the actual happening. Based on the report last Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released last year 2007, 30 in the snow mountains in the world lose their thickness up to more than half a meter to 2005 only. The last two years have not been included in the report.

Risks and consequences

Because energy is eternal, snow, snow earlier by itself is not lost, and only changed form. Like the ice in a glass, when it is exposed to heat and melt, the volume of water is not reduced or increased, but only changed. So, the first consequence of the rising temperature of the earth and snow thaw deposit-deposit before water is more water in the growing crop. The increase can be detected in all corners of the earth, and proven through a number of photos that compare the air in an area of tens of years ago with contemporary conditions.

However, the consequences of rising temperatures is not simply the earth. Changes that occurred in the ecological environment where human beings and other living life to bring the impact of chilling for mankind. Physics law states, the wind moves from a cold place to a more heat. Nah, the difference of temperature of a region with other areas that are very extreme at the same time have triggered the emergence of hurricanes, storms, tornado, and often become more than a few years ago. Countries in the region of North America, Central, South and Caribbean, Europe, and South and East Asia have felt the impact from the hurricane caused a storm this. Cyclone that has the names nan beautiful people jump all over the earth move, and it is death.

Water flow movement not only brought large natural flood, but also accompanied by landslides due to deforestation that takes place every minute. In the same time, the world is threatened by a drought and fire, the other stricken cyclone storms, floods and landslides torment that hundreds of millions of human beings.

Consequences on the Local Level
Drought in the area of Gunung Kidul, for example, may have become a fact of plural take each year and already tens of years since it happened. However, the difficulties experienced by the water on the slopes of Mount Merapi, the last five years, for example, of a new fact which shows how hard the water obtained.

Difficulty vegetable farmers on the slopes of Mount Merbabu for example, is also something that still sounds strange. Grojogan Sewu is still shed water. But compared to fifteen years ago, for example, grojogan is now changed to no more than a shower. Some forty years to come, so he may live only a drop.

That is just from the scarcity of water. From the climate change, all cities and regions in Indonesia became the victim. In the middle, for example, Kaliurang in Jogjakarta, Tawangmangu in Karanganyar, Bandungan or in Semarang, it is not because the tourists were the cool air and cold, but because kelatahan and a cap attached terlanjut as the tour. That's it. Previously, in these areas remain cold mist came down each morning throughout the year. Now, he can only be found several times throughout the year, depending on the very itupun season.

In Puncak Jaya, Papua, the snow is no longer on the perch since its peak a few years ago. This era marked the end of the existence of the only snow in the area of Indonesia. And this proves that the earth is hot is not crap but the fact the current reality.

Ironically, in a situation that the air is hot, people ago to find ways to mendinginkannya, but only for themselves. Air conditioning is a pragmatic option for this, but the very day the tool can only be reached by society to the top of the middle class. The poor clearly can not swerve from the swelter.

Ironically, the use of air conditioning and a more intensive masif in most households in urban areas are akumulatif would encourage the creation of the earth due to the hot gases generated by the air conditioning is not environmentally friendly. It is so, the use of air conditioning which also trigger the intensive increase in electricity demand, which continues to expand, the more Ironically, while the electricity is produced using fossil fuel that is not friendly to the environment and contribute on global warming.

This vicious circle clearly lead the people and the poorest do not have access to economic resources sufficient to become victims. Number of people who more tersisih of the circle will continue to bring this up because the word enmity and agree on efforts to combat climate change kongkret is experiencing a critical impasse.
