Global Warming

March 1, 2012 | 1 Comment

I can remember going home during fall break and getting my North Face jacket and Peacoat. Every year I have been at George Mason University the winters are extreme. If it’s not a blizzard, it’s a frozen tundra, and the walk from Liberty Square to the Johnson Center is unbearable.

This winter has taken a different course. It’s been warm. Since January there have been numerous days with a high above 50 degrees.  Fall never ended and with March in sight it appears that there won’t be a winter after all.

Global warming has to be the scapegoat. NASA reports that the older thicker Arctic ice it melting rapidly. The ice that develops in the winter is the first to melt, but this winter both the fresh ice and older ice are melting quicker than ever. If the ice continues to melt  the Arctic Ocean will begin to over flow and indefinitely cover Greenland.

The cause of global warming is accredited to a thin ozone layer that has been damaged by air pollution that factories around the world produced.
