Maybe the present situation of the mercury shooting up all over India is an alarm bell.

Global warming? A serious problem?
Let me re-phrase that for you. The pompous arrogance used against the innocent and naïve to cause undue and unnescessary fear is a serious problem. Not global warmng.
A direct comparison can be made to the phrase "War on Drugs" Taken literally, it sounds rediculous. Battling against inanimate objects? It should be a war against the cause or indiviual need for drug use.
Global warming should not be misunderstood. it will cause havoc.

Future shock: Heat wave temperatures to soar in decades

Washington: During the European heat wave of 2003 that killed tens of thousands, the temperature in parts of France hit 40°C. Nearly 15,000 people died in that country alone. During the Chicago heat wave of 1995, the mercury spiked above 41°C and about 600 people died.
In a few decades, people will look back at those heat waves “and we will laugh”, said Andreas Sterl, author of a new study. “We will find (those temperatures) lovely and cool.”
Sterl’s computer model shows by the end of the century, high temperatures for once-in-a-generation heat waves will rise twice as fast as everyday average temperatures. Chicago, for example, would reach 46°C in such an event by 2100. Paris could near 42.7°C with Lyon coming closer to 45.5°C .
Sterl is with the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, projects temperatures for heat waves around the world. His numbers are blistering because of the drying-out effect of a warming world. Most global warming research focuses on average daily temperatures instead of these extremes, which cause greater damage.
His study projects a peak of 47°C for Los Angeles and 43°C for Atlanta by 2100; that’s 5 degrees higher than the current records for those cities. Kansas City faces the prospect of a 46.6°C heat wave, with its current alltime high at 43°C, according to the National Climactic Data Center.
A few cities, such as Phoenix, which once hit 50°C have already reached these extreme temperatures. But they would be hitting those numbers a little more often as the world heats up over time.
It could be worse. Delhi, India is expected to hit 49°C; Belem, Brazil, 49.4°C and Baghdad, 50°C .
These are temperatures that are dangerous, said University of Wisconsin environmental health professor Jonathan Patz. And by 2050, heat waves will be 3 to 5 degrees hotter than now “and probably be longerlasting,” Sterl said. By mid-century, southern France’s extreme heat waves should be around 44°C and then near 48°C by the end of the century, Sterl’s climate models predict.

Obviously we have a problem with garbage, deforestation and urban polution, but I also think that all the global warming stuff is a hoax, with political arrangements. Also the Nobel Peace Prize has canceled the value of all Nobel Peace prizes, of course , not the value of them who have earned it.
