Then Mark talks about all the various possible causes of global warming such as the accumulations of the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere that trap the heat like a blanket covering the earth. The sunspot with its high magnetic activities affecting earth. The geographic timeline of earth designating it a warming period. Human population that is exploding. And many others.
Mark concludes that there are three basic beliefs hold by all: 1) Earth's surface temperature has increased since the Industrial Revolution. 2) Man produces carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. 3) Carbon dioxide does make the earth warm.
In the end Marks offers the plan of action as:
" For mankind to survive on planet earth, we need to use a multi-prong approach, specifically mitigation, adaption, and get undiscovered technological advances that will both produces non-carbon based energy sources while simultaneously reducing current levels of atmospheric greenhouse gases."
And he finalizes it with:
"Let's adopt a no-regrets strategy that will surely deliver payoffs regardless of the causes of global warming."
So all I can conclude from reading this book is nothing is a sure thing about global warming, except that the warmth is increasing over the globe. He talks very scientifically but yet not universally enough to let me draw a big picture. Could it be that science alone cannot handle this problem (if it's a problem)? And that may be we should look at it from a more philosophical analysis perspective. Questions to be posed are such as: what's the purpose of nature in all this? How are mightily small humans going to cope with the crucial decision of nature? How are small humans fitting into the big orchestration of the whole work of nature?
