Raindrop of knowledge about global warming

Green roofs will expand greenspace - Our cities, towns, and homes do not have to baking hot, sterile, paved-over hardscapes. Green roofs are roofing systems that are built to support plant life. On top of a waterproof barrier, soil and plants are placed on the roof instead of shingles, pavement, asphalt, etc. The benefits of green roofs are numerous. They insulate buildings and reduce heating and cooling costs. They absorb stormwater runoff. They soak of carbon dioxide. They produce oxygen. They look nice. Support green roofs by encouraging your local government to encode them in building requirements. Learn more at Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.

I have lived here before
In days of ice.
And I came back to find
The stars displaced,
And the smell of a world
That is burned.
Yeah, well, maybe it's just a change of climate....

by Jimi Hendrix from the song "Up From The Skies"

About this Global Warming website

This website seeks to present facts about global warming so as to impress upon people the seriousness of the environmental situation on the Earth. Human activities are having a terrible impact upon our environment, including a rise in average global temperature called global warming or climate change.

Leaving the human causes of global warming debate aside, the fact remains that our primary methods of getting energy from fossil fuels are horrendously polluting and unhealthy. Car exhaust has chemicals in common with cigarrette smoke, but no one has a choice about being exposed to car exhaust. Coal power plants spew mercury into the environment along with carbon dioxide that contributes to the apparently hazardous warming of the Earth.

Along with alarming facts about global warming, this website also offers practical information and advice for individuals and businesses who want to reduce their carbon dioxide footprint on the environment. The devastating effects of our overly polluted existence cannot be ignored, and waiting for governments to take actions has proved to be a long wait indeed. People need to reduce their pollution right now through better choices. Ultimately, governments do what people do.

Shocking videos of the environmental cost of coal and oil

The province of Alberta, Canada possesses huge amounts of oil deposited in tar sands. Extracting the petroleum from these deposits is difficult and requires polluting whole rivers. Also to access the deposits forests are ripped up.

Go to the Alberta oil video page to view what $3.00 + a gallon gas is buying for the Earth.

After most of us pull in the driveway and turn off our gasoline combustion engines, we go into the house and turn on the lights, that are more often than not powered with electricity from coal. In West Virginia in the United States entire mountains are blown apart and valleys filled in to extract coal. The hills of West Virginia and its biologically diverse forests are being turned into bleak rubble for what is touted by energy companies as "cheap electricity."

Go to the mountain top removal coal mining video page to see the environmental horrors inflicted on the people of West Virginia and the Appalachians.
