IPCC & Spiegel positive developments due to global warming

SPIEGEL UN REPORT EXCLUSIVE

SPIEGEL Online March 02, 2007 reported that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report is that climate change is already having a profound effect on all the continents.

Spiegel states that:

The authors of the IPCC report have sifted through some 30,000 data sets from more than 70 international studies documenting changes to water circulation, to cryospheres (ice zones), as well as to flora and fauna over a period of at least 20 years.

Among the effects that could occur according to the SPIEGEL UN REPORT EXCLUSIVE we find that springtime is starting earlier, causing plants to bloom earlier, — allowing animals to expand their habitats into mountainous regions and higher latitudes that are becoming milder.

Months ago Polar Bears were cited as being a barometer for the arctic ecosystem in numerous articles and media reports. Canadian reports place the latest polar bear populations at a number at or above 26,000 which is several thousand greater than a few years ago. This certainly means good hunting for the Polar Bear sport hunters during the long hunting season in Northern Canada this year and many years to come.

Spiegel further reported:

The report lists specific positive developments due to global warming

More food in the north and a possibly greener Earth

The experts apparently do not have concerns about the planet’s food production capabilities. Conditions for agriculture are likely to improve in higher latitudes, leading to greater global yields

Vegetation growth will be stronger and the planet will become greener

The absorption of CO2 by plant life will to a certain extent work against climate change .

While this is just a partial list of the benefits of the Earth becoming greener as the Increased Solar Activity warms our Arctic Ice Cap and the Southern Ice Cap of Mars, more good news could be found in the latest IPCC report.

Just like in the Third IPCC report the Forth IPCC report again lowered its estimates of the possible increase in sea levels due to the limited areas of coastal glacial ice in parts of Greenland and one small part of Antarctica. Several reports have been published that even the high estimates of less then two feet of sea level rise over 100 years is very unlikely, and that the estimates are probably closer to the low estimates by the IPCC of about 7 inches over the next 100 years.

All the benefits may be short lived as Scientific Studies indicate that the cyclical solar activity has just about reached it’s peak and may very well be on it’s way down again as it has done in the past according to studies and records.

We should all be prepared for the next set of predictions and for another round of doom and gloom warning reports, warning us about the next ICE AGE(Time Magazine) and the pollution effects on the environment, and the economic impact of the high cost of heating. Cooler minds will prevail as the public now savvy to the scientific data availability on the Internet and the true intentions of Organizations bent on increasing their global powers through taxes and regulations on their dream bureaucracy, a World without boarders.

“Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming, Scientist Says”

Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet’s recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human- induced
