Hurricane Ivan is going to cause some major damage, but it may be just the tip of the iceberg_
"Global warming is creating conditions that (are) more favorable for hurricanes to develop and be more severe," said Kevin Trenberth, head of the climate analysis section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.
I still don't understand why people reject the solid evidence of global warming. Why do they listen to corporate interests over scientists with real data? My guess is that it has something to do with the size of their advertising budget.
In all honesty, I don't worry about a doomsday scenario, like the one in that crappy movie. I don't really worry about life on earth either - I have no doubt that, despite warmer temperatures, life will still be here. I do worry, however, that humans may not.
