How Much Does Gasoline Cost?
What causes climate change?
To answer that, ask
"What has CO2 air, land and ocean pollution caused since fire was discovered?"
The oceans have vacuumed up gigatonnes of the CO2 emitted, trapping heat -
Which has warmed the air, land - and the massive ocean masks the heating effect -
This heat melts the Arctic Ice Cap
Like an ice cube in your drink, it stays cold until the ice melts
The increased heat drives evaporation, which increases rainfall, and Antarctica swells in size as more snow falls

Due to fossil fuel burning
Sir Richard Branson, founder and chairman of the Virgin Group, warns of OIl crunch coming before 2018.
Because Global Oil Demand is 89.37 million barrels, and skyrocketing.
Global Production is 75 million barrels, and cratering.
We have run out of cheap oil, and therefore oil is too expensive

Examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations.
Based in part on Endgame, the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen.
END:CIV asks: “If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?”

Droughts rage elsewhere
Why does Climate Change so fast?
Because the Fossil Fuel Giants are making BILLIONS
As we buy more Gas and Coal to burn
And they are spending billions to make sure that it stays that way
1 Minute to get the difference between a long term warming trend and short term temperature variation.

Arctic sea ice loss
A Major Masking effect of the massive size of the ocean on temperatures is caused by melting ice caps, and the vast majority of this so called
"Ice cube effect" caused by the Arctic ice melting.
The Gulf Stream is threatened by a massive increase in cold water volume spreading south from the melting polar ice cap.
Scientists worry that the Gulf Stream mechanism will be switched off altogether by this massive frigid southward tide, radically changing the northwestern European climate from temperate to arctic.
The Gulf Stream is powered by the freezing of sea water in the Arctic which sends brine down into the deep Atlantic to be replaced by surface water (the Gulf Stream) sucked northward from around Florida.
