HydrogenBond Posted February 14, 2007 Report Share Posted February 14, 2007 I'm an optimist and like to see the bright side of things. So I thought a post about the bright side of global warming would be useful. Most people like summers better than winters. Most vacations are planeed in the summer, Global warming will allow more people to get what they want from the seasons. Global warming means longer growing seasons to produce more food for the worlds growing populations. It alos means more bio-mass and therefore a faster rate of natural soil renewal via bio-mass. Global warming will increase the amount of habitable land on the earth by thawing out some of the tundra land. This may allow Greenland to get green. Someday it will be like Canada. Global warming means more solar evaporation and therefore more fresh water for the thirsty world. Since heating burns more fossil fuel than AC (in developed countries), this will lower our dependacy on foreign oil. For example, if we keep the thermostat at 70F, summer may average 90 for a 20F difference. In the winter it may average 20F for a 50F difference. Higher thermal gradient in winter means more energy requirements, i.e., double in winter. Global warrming means the evolution of new species. Old species may go but a changing or the guard is usually progressive. The global warming from the last ice age brought us human civilization. That alone was avery good thing. So the ocean levels rise. This will save fuel. Transport by ship will be able to reach more places on the earth. The rising ocean levels will cause people to evacute the coast and go further inland to avoid buying swampland. This will lower the impact of hurricanes. It will also allow former land bounded people to waste less fuel driving to the ocean. Does anyone have any other bright sides of global warming?
