Scientist's call upon policy makers on global warming


Scientists gathered at Arctic Science Summit Week, which started on Wednesday in New Hampshire to make up their mind on crucial changes in the North Pole that highlights global warming more than ever before.

Ross Virginia, one of the organizers of the Arctic Science Summit on global warming, pre-opened the summit with a speech that was to make everyone realize the problem of the environment. She asked everyone to join scientific and policy efforts around the globe.

The summit represents a first step for the International Polar Year that is expected to end in March 2009. For this period the environmental experts are going to explore in detail all the aspects of seasonal changes at both poles.

Nowadays no one should feel indifferent about the serious consequences that global warming entails. One of the main goals set on the summit is to consolidate for appeal to policy makers. The latest Congress debates held in Washington, where Bush administration was criticized for inadequate response to global warming danger, showed that there is a necessity for scientific appeal to policy makers. Thus a new committee was called to deal with the issue.

The exploration of both poles will draw the latest technology, including robots and satellites, to make an observation on minor changes in ice thickness. The meetings held on previous polar year sessions were mainly focused on the discovery of Arctic and Antarctic areas, these being largely unexplored. Now scietists pay more attention on taking immediate measures to convey the core of the problem to policy makers rather than proving the existance of global warming.

The Artic Sea melting has struck a warning sign on humanity that can no longer hide from the climate changes. The warming that takes place on the poles is much different from the warming on the equator. Huge amounts of ice that turn into water will alter the sea level with no way back. The succession of the events may be quite dramatic: the first to be affected will be the wildlife on the North Pole and then humans irrevocably.

I also think global warming COULD be stoped if people would get off there lazy butts and HELP. People are making new iventions that make things 'easier' and then they complain about how everyones getting fat. NO DUH! There making everything so you just have to click a button, people think 'oh yeah the scienceteist will fix everything so gobal warming ends. WRONG. Its time to stand up. HELP THE EARTH. GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUTT FOR ONCE!!!! SOME schools help. Like my school, EF Rittmullar. By the way, im 13 years old and I Even know all this. I think its sad. America needs a little change, FAST

The solution for global warming is a complicated one because the main reasons are the one that brings us comfort and developed civilization. However, we have to maintain balance in our ecosystem lest we started again from stone age

I'm afraid to think that this is the beginning only. I wish each of us could realize how important this issue is. We have kids behind and I'd like them to live and enjoy this world - not suffer. There must be something we can do - be more concious, talk to each other and let everybody know how dangerous it is. This world is too beautiful. So let's cooperate and improve the situation or at least keep it under control - everybody! It's our home - and it's in danger...

yah it's true,so we have to spread the alarming news to our fellowmen to prevent our mother earth for such a terrible danger...avoid/prevent climate change...let's help to save our environment for the future of our son's&daughters...the whole world as well...

The issue of global warming is universal and no nation should be non-challant about it.It is expedient that all continents of the world come out with a formidable policy that can salvage the threat.

I think we're just hypocrites saying "people" this and "people" that. I think no one, including me, is entitled in fully saying anything patronizing anyone else in the fact that we, or 'they,' are responsible for global warming and "stupid." I think unless we truly are doing something in our lives to help turn this whole thing around, then we are entitled to persuade others to do the same... just to put it out there...

i think this is a very true article. I am really worried about how the poor polar bears are dying because they cant find any ice to stand on, so they are stuck swimming around trying to find some ice to take a break from swimming. I think someone sould send out a bunch of boats and fint the unlucky polar bears and other animals trying to find icy land. Please, if anyone reads this, support my idea. Thanks :)
