Global Warming Causes Climate Change.

I did not think I had to make this post, but being a member of various political debate groups on Facebook, I have come to realize that my many Republican friends have the wrong idea about climate change, global warming and how they are connected, so here it is up close. 

Many people have been sold on the theory that global warming is just a hoax dreamt up by Al Gore. It has also been laid down as a rule that Mr. Gore has made billions of dollars because of this hoax. I personally do not believe that he thought up this theory, as I remember hearing scientists' concerns about global warming since the seventies.

It is a simple idea, that increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will cause it to heat up. This idea is commonly accepted amongst the scientific community. There are a rumored 3% to 5% of scientists who do not believe in this idea of global warming for their own reasons, and instead they cling to the idea that the earth goes through natural cycles of heating and cooling, this cycling being explained with the example of the ice age.

The fact that the earth goes through these heating and cooling cycles is in fact true, but it cannot be used to explain global warming in the 21st century because these cycles take place hundreds and even thousands of years apart.

This recent bout of global warming started only since the industrial era which began roughly 100 years ago. There has not been any indication that absent of our industrial explosion, there would have been a natural cycle of global warming occuring.
Republicans have embraced the term'Climate Change,' but refuse to connect said climate change to global warming. Let me explain this in detail... Global warming causes climate change.

Think of a hot saucepan into which you break an egg. The hot pan causes changes to the raw egg, causing it to fry and be cooked. That is the same process with a heated atmosphere...or a warming globe. It causes changes in the weather patterns and that in turn means the cooling and heating becomes more pronounced in many areas and is not to be misunderstood as a natural earth warming cycle.

In other words the climate norms change, summers would be warmer, and longer or shorter...winters would be colder, and longer or shorter... droughts would show up where you never expected and the sea currents would be changed, which would bring about more global changes. 

One of these changes, is the melting of the ice caps and that then causes the rising of sea levels and the devastation thereof, commonly seen as coastal flooding and the problems associated with this.

As the globe warms, that warming brings about changes in the climate... in effect, global warming causes climate changes... or climate change for those who still grapple with this.
