Climate Change - Nature Or Man?

Climate Change – Nature Or Man?

Climate change is one of the most hotly debated subjects around at the moment. When you think about it that is quite understandable, mankind (or humankind for the ‘PC’s’ out there) is totally dependant on the earth’s climate for survival. The weather affects everything and can kill us through excessive heat, excessive cold, storms, earthquakes,...
The Relationship Between Sunspots and Earth's Climate

The Relationship Between Sunspots and Earth’s Climate

Even before the telescope was invented, scientists identified dark blotches on the sun which would eventually be named sunspots. In the 1600s in Europe, Galileo and other scientists began to record information on them, though they were not sure what exactly they were.  Today, advanced camera technology enables scientists to take highly accurate photographs of...
The Effect of Volcanoes on our Climate

The Effect of Volcanoes on our Climate

Fewer natural spectacles are more awesome or more terrifying that the eruption of a volcano. A volcano can shatter mountains, destroy islands and kill thousands of people. But a volcano can have a more subtle effect on it’s surroundings. Since before the dawn of recorded history, these elevated time bombs have been spewing gases and...
Trying To Balance The Climate Change Debate

Trying To Balance The Climate Change Debate

We live in a time when a new religion has grown up, that of the ‘mankind sole cause of climate change‘ group of people which has spawned a huge push for green energy regardless of cost or efficiency. This has grown to a large number of people, but for many it is because most of...
Marine Life Within the Gulf Stream

Marine Life Within the Gulf Stream

When it comes to the weather, most people check the newspaper or an internet weather website to see whether to expect rain or sunshine, and then go about their day without realizing that there is much more to weather than that. There are a number of factors that affect your local weather that you may...

Historical Evidence Of Humans Adapting To Climate Change

Anyone who is not caught up in the ‘global warming caused by man’ religion can surely point to many instances of mankind adapting to their environment. Throughout history we have gone off exploring new lands and environments and found hostile surroundings that we have ended up settling in and adapting to, often driving us to...

The Unlikely Culprit Behind Climate Change

The Unlikely Culprit Behind Climate Change

For millions of years, mankind has feared Volcanoes for the immense power and destruction that results from a volcanic eruption. The citizens of Pompeii thought that gods dwelt in the mountain of Vesuvius and that volcanic activity was actually the result of the gods being displeased with the people, but even they could not have...
Human Activity and Climate Change

Human Activity and Climate Change

Scientists continue to debate the role of human activity in climate change. Some scientists believe sunspots and other solar activity have the greatest effect on the earth’s temperature while others believe they have no significant effect. To understand the debate over sunspots and their role, one must look at both sides of the story. ┬áScientists...
The Effects Of Solar Radiation On The Earth's Climate

The Effects Of Solar Radiation On The Earth’s Climate

Scientists and observers who have watched the sun have noticed certain trends for sunspots. There is a connection between chemical processes in the sun and the amount of solar flares and spots that can be observed. There is a cycle that lasts about eleven years of solar activity. During the periods of greatest activity there...
How Earthquakes Affect Our Climate

How Earthquakes Affect Our Climate

To understand how earthquakes affect our climate, we must first understand what the climate is and how an earthquake happens. The climate is the change in meteorological variables such as a change in the temperature, the amount of precipitation that we get, or even the amount of wind that occurs in an area. It is...
How Volcanic Eruptions Contribute To Climate Change

How Volcanic Eruptions Contribute To Climate Change

Volcanoes are openings or craters on a planet’s surface, which shoot out magma, ash and gases that are stored below the surface. Over 75% of the volcanoes on Earth are found in an area around the Pacific Ocean where tectonic plates meet. This area is known as The Ring of Fire. Volcanoes don’t all look...
How Earth Tremors Can Alter The Environment

How Earth Tremors Can Alter The Environment

Earthquakes can be very frightening, they cause massive destruction wherever they occur. They topple buildings in cities, and have killed thousands of people with just one occurrence. They are capable of causing fires and giant waves in the ocean, commonly known as tsunamis. Not all earthquakes cause massive destruction because some of them are minor,...
