Who's afraid of Global Warming? MOO investigates...
Despite intense media coverage it seems that we're
not actually worried about global warming!
results of the BS Met Office Web-Poll are in and it seems
that despite world summits, rising fuel tax and extensive
media reports on the subject it seems that global warming
does not worry us as much as one may think. Perhaps it is
promises from experts of a Mediterranean climate in
Britain that have made us not worry about flooding and
freak weather conditions. In fact, if global warming does
exist unfortunately Britain would only become colder! This
is because global warming would change the direction that
the North Atlantic Drift (Gulf Stream) brings warm air
towards Europe. With this moved, then the climate would
be more like that of Newfoundland which surprisingly is at
the same latitude as Britain! If you don't believe me,
then just look at a map.
reason that so many of us are not worried about Global
Warming is that we only receive an extra storm from time
to time at present. Perhaps if we were living in the
Maldives or in Bangladesh we would be thinking
differently. In Bangladesh there has been major flooding
and many peoples homes and possessions have been lost. The
Maldives, which at their highest point are only a few
metres above the ground are threatened by submersion.
future, Global Warming may or may not cause the worldwide
disaster many have been predicting. However, if there is
the possibility it is probably best to be safe rather than
