Is global warming really bad or is it actually good?

Well, all of us have been fed that global warming is bad, but new research and theories such as the gaia theory may show that it is not as bad as they say.
What do you feel?

It is good because it gives eco terrorists meaning in life; without they would have no purpose.

If it were true it would be good as my central heating bill would be lower. If this global warming continues I'm going to freeze to death.

Your WATER bill will be higher than your heating bill, (if you can get any at all!) Your food bill (from drought and fires) will be higher yet! Forget eating fish.

You definitely must be joking. Here in Ireland it rains every day to a greater or lesser extent, well we do get the occasional dry day, I think, yes there was a day in July 2005 when it didn't rain, much. It's either raining, just stopped raining or just about to rain. One potentially good feature of this alleged global warming is that we may be able to export our pure Irish water by the tanker full or pipe it to those countries which are experiencing drought. Ireland's prime industry is farming and we are totally self sufficient, and indeed have a substantial surplus in all forms of food including, cereal crops, dairy and beef cattle, a wide range of vegetables and poultry.

It can be good for some people. It depends on their geographical location. As well as other factors.

For example. Guess who is very likely to greatly prosper from Global Warming? That is, if the cycle continues. (And that is ALL it is: a cycle. ALL things in nature are cyclical.)

Russia!

LOL.

Yep. Ya see, there has for centuries been a perma-frost over the vast expanse of Siberia. So, even though under that ground is a treasure of fossil fuels and minerals, the Russians have been unable to mine it, due to the thick ice.

But it is now melting!! And many Climatologists surmise that if the warming trend continues as it has, that in a few more years all that wealth of oil and natural gas and ores--like gold!--will be ready for the picking by Russia.

Which, along with Comrade Putin's rabid nationalism and drive to make Russia a Global Super Power once again, could very well enable that nation to become a dominant Force.

Global warming is a win-win situation. There are 7 billion people on the planet. Global warming could help reduce the world's population. This could aleviate traffic congestion. If the world's population keeps on increasing, global warming will melt the ice caps at the poles. This creates more land for people to move to. See? Win-win.

I'm sorry but do you know why they don't want the ice caps to melt?

For one, it would actually reduce the amount of land, due to sea levels rising. Two, it would completely disrupt the system called the Gulf Stream, which is responsible for the recycling of sea water and the currents in the oceans and it has a much larger affect on the world than you think. Not to mention any of the effects caused by global warming on wildlife.

Please actually do some research before discussing matters like this.

Global warming is caused by people. Global warming will kill the peole. No more peole, no more global warming. Global wamng is good because global warmng fixes the global warming problem.

Global warming is releasing mega tons of previously frozen "swamp gas" into the atmosphere. Siberia is so much warmer that diseases which the cold normally kept under control is killing off their trees. It is also causing "town sized" explosions opening huge craters in the ground. The Russians are worried (at least the scientific ones). Many Americans are too stupid .... um, bad choice of words...Are under "perception modification" by certain factions (FOX Nation and the energy czars), to actually SEE what is, and CAN happen! To the rest of the world we look more like that "bad choice of words"!

Ice caps aren't covering up land underneath. It's just ice. When they melt, they just become water. Then water everywhere else gets higher. Which means less land. Which means overpopulation becomes more dire because there is less land to live on.

South pole. Lots of land covered by ice.

Greenland. Lots of land covered by ice.

For the narrative the Left must push to get the taxation they want. Taxation is the whole purpose for the false narrative of Climate Change.

So why does the global scientific community, the overwhelming majority of which will not in any way benefit from said taxation, "push" this "false narrative"?

Because the scientific community operates on Grant Money.

Guess where that money comes from.

What is Climate Change about ? And how might Government fix it ? So how will Government will fix the Earth and Skies ? Who benefits from the false narrative of Climate Change ? Who ever mentioned the "Global Scientific Community" other than you ?

Well, you didn't give us an option that said "Global Warming is NOT Man-made but merely the current state of a perpetual Climatological Cycle." So I chose this option, thinking that it is "good" as compared with the gloom and doomers' opinion that it's man-made and will spell the end for us all. LOL.

And yeah, the warming trend is benefiting some countries, depending on their geography and economics. The nation that I believe right not stands to really reap some benefits from Warming is Russia. The Perma-Frost in Siberia has forever made it all but impossible to access the vast wealth of minerals and fossil fuels beneath it.

But if things continue the way they have been, weather-wise, it seems as if Russia will access a literal gold mine of goodies. Greatly aiding them in attaining Putin's agenda of becoming a World Power once again.
