In the face of uncertain policy trends on global warming, concerned sectors suggested five guidelines of policy to secure that survival. First, actions or decisions should be applied only in the near future so as to accommodate new knowledge on global warming still to be discovered. Second, reducing global warming will incur large costs to human society. Third, global warming involves all nations and should not be confined to only a few concerned or eager ones. Fourth, actions should be taken according to an orderly timetable and periodically reviewed. Fifth, plans evolved should be flexible and capable of incorporating new knowledge (Weidenbaum). It has been evident and unfortunate that the global warming has been reduced to a partisan issue rather than treated as an all-significant scientific reality (Manzi 2007). Conservatives have also locked themselves away from the discussion. It does present as a very threatening situation with very serious consequences from continued neglect but no one should be paralyzed in fear. As recommended, a science-based approach will consist and need support for prediction, mitigation and adaptation technologies (Manzi).

The first requires the development and use of climate-predictive tools (Manzi 2007). Present climate modeling is very costly but also poorly supervised by smart analysts. It is usually dominated by excessive and complex researches rather than focused on the task at hand. There is a lack of rigorous validation studies on reliable predictions and transparent data standards. There is clear and urgent need for federal funds to be redirected for the creation of a better and more responsive software modeling process. It should be complemented by networks of physical sensors to provide early-warning systems for imminent and potential climatic disasters (Manzi).

The second involves mitigating the condition by long-term decarbonization (Manzi 2007). It includes the development of tactical technologies like carbon sequestration and cleaner-burning...

These products should be exported to big countries like China and India. Utilizing U.S. Or European technology to raise the energy-conversion efficiency of Chinese power plants now using coal may not be attractive today. But it also appears to be the most important step to take in decreasing global carbon emissions in the next century (Manzi).
Adaptation technology measures are the last but the most importantly cost-effective measure to address the global threat (Manzi 2007). These measures include simple techniques, such as planting more trees and utilizing more reflective pain. Developing crops strains, which grow better in slightly warmer temperatures, better buttresses for buildings, and radical zoning codes in coastal areas can substantially reduce losses from changes in temperatures, hurricanes and floods at present. These will also reduce vulnerability to future climatic catastrophes (Manzi).

The very real threat of global warming requires rising from the denial stage and assuming a genuine science-based approach to confront it. Minimizing political and economic damage is no longer the issue (Manzi 2007). The survival of the species and the environment is. It can no longer be denied or overlooked.

" Monitoring and enforcing a [CO.sub.2] treaty would be very difficult, if not impossible. Reductions in [CO.sub.2] emissions by rich countries could be negated by increased [CO.sub.2] emissions in fast-growing developing countries (Udall, 1990)." One of the issues facing the global warming crisis is the debate about who is most responsible for its creation and who should be financially responsible for its curbing. According to recently gathered data Americans are causing a much

Switching to solar heating would make a profound change, for heating and hot water can be heated freely and cleanly from the sun. By switching to energy efficient heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration, the greatest power users, consumers could have a huge impact on emissions. Changing to hybrid, fuel-efficient cars, public transportation and walking, when feasible, would have a profound impact on human-created carbon emissions. Penalizing and rewarding consumers and

Changing the climate of the earth will also impact living conditions for humanity. People will be forced to deal with the effects of living in a warmer environment, which may mean hotter temperatures and growth of mold and mildew, as well as deal with the issues surrounding home modification to adjust to the new climate variable. There may be a need for increased air conditioning; air conditioners require energy to

Below is a chart depicting various amounts of energy consumption by the average individual in Society? Notice that "space cooling," "water heating" and "lighting" segments contribute nearly 30% of all energy consumption in the household (Australian Energy Outlook 2006). This energy consumption however, is variable in nature. Lighting costs or space cooling costs are dependent primarily on individual preference and discipline. By simply turning off lights, or reducing the amount

Global warming occurs due to the rise in temperature. The trapping of light and heat from the sun causes this rising of temperature. Nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, methane and water vapor are the green house gases, these gases trap the light and heat from the sun, and as a result, the temperature rises. This global warming hurts a large number of people, plants and animals living in the earth. There

Global Warming -- it Is Authentic, but Why So Many Skeptics? The phrases "global warming" and "climate change" have become household words over the past twenty years or so, and given the vast amount of discussion and research, and the clear signs that the planet is hearing up, an alert citizen can safety predict that this topic will become even more prominent in American society. What are the latest results from
