Global Warming Is Good

Warmer climates mean a greener planet.

From CNN.

Warmer climates mean a rise in sea level due to melting of ice caps. Rising sea levels mean flooding in low lying countries. Global warming sucks if you live in Bangladesh, for instance, or any one of a number of countries which suffer catastropic floods on a more frequent basis due to global warming.

It isn't good. It's the Earth's way to try and recover from rises in CO2 levels. Some areas will dry out. Others will get more green. Green areas will probably advance more north, which isn't good, per se, because there goes the permafrost, tundra, and polar regions. A fairly credible theory predicts that if the North Pole melted completely, the Gulf Stream would die, plunging Europe into permanent Arctic temperatures, and we'd have to wait another few thousand years for the Ice Age to end.

With the projection of cycles of rising/lowering CO2 levels, it looks as if they are reaching a natural plateau. However, it's probably another few thousand years before we go glacial. So, looks like an Ice Age is more likely than a Heat Wave. Bundle up.
