The doomsday Day After to Tomorrow claims are bogus, no one who understands mans role in climate change is makimg such claims!
It's a banner week for the end of the world, because we've officially pushed atmospheric carbon levels past their dreaded 400 parts per million. Permanently.

They don't care if people drop dead as along as it looks like they are "doing something" with their initiatives to help the environment, but better leave the industries alone. It's ponies and balloons and if tens of thousands of asthmatics die and hundreds of thousands take a dramatic hit to their quality of life... Meh... They still get to feel important.
Earth warming to climate tipping point, warns study
The world's most outspoken climatologist argues that today's carbon dioxide levels are already dangerously too high. What can we do if he is right?
“Five-nine” doesn’t have quite the cadence as “nine-eleven,” but when we look back on the early 21st century, I believe that May 9, 2013 — the day the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere exceeded 400 parts per million for the first time in recorded history — may in the future be understood as a far more important date than September 11, 2001. It may even be that 5/9 will be seen as the long-anticipated tipping point at which human impacts caused irrevocable harm to our planet.
So here we have energy companies who produce an enourmous amount of CO2 restricting the private person from making their
If you want to see evidence of sea level rise, visit the Florida Keys in the fall durring a full or new moon.
There is plenty of scientific evidence, I don't think that is your problem, I think you may be reading a bunch of emotional articles with misinformation as opposed to scientific articles with facts about the issue.
Here is an article of myths you may have been reading regarding climate change not being real
- Why it matters: Carbon dioxide made up 81 percent of the United States’ greenhouse gas emissions in 2014. Fossil fuels and certain chemical reactions produce this odorless, colorless gas—a gas that traps heat in the atmosphere. Despite sinks that remove CO2 from soil, forests, and the ocean, industrial-era emissions mean that CO2 levels are the highest they have ever been in hundreds of millions of years.
- What will help: Reducing fossil fuels is the number one way to reduce atmospheric CO2. Energy efficiency, carbon capture, and market-based controls are among the most effective measures to curb carbon dioxide concentrations.
Federal gauges stationed around the state's coast document the slowly rising water. After decades of almost imperceptible increases, the sea began rising faster about 30 years ago, said William Sweet, an oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It jumped again beginning in 2006. Now NOAA reports sea levels are rising along parts of the Florida coast by more than a third of an inch every year.
