How did I know, another spammed thread - shows this campaign is no more than a scam when one has to spam to promote it...
Global warming is caused by greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide that are trapped by our atmosphere. Greenhouse gases are necessary for life on this planet. But in the last 200 years, human activity has released more carbon dioxide than our planet can handle too many gases are staying inside our atmosphere, more than at any time in the last 800,000 years. The effects of this global warming of our planet are becoming more dramatic every day.
Effects of Global Warming:
Global warming is melting the polar ice caps, robbing polar bears of the ice floes they need to hunt prey. As the annual sea ice melts, polar bears are forced ashore to spend their summers fasting. If the Arctic ice cap continues to melt sooner and form later, polar bears will become too thin to reproduce and they will become extinct by the end of this century.
The polar bear's home the Arctic is experiencing the effects of global warming more than any other place. Temperatures in the Arctic are rising at almost twice the rate of that of the rest of the world, and this is threatening to place the entire Arctic ecosystem in jeopardy.
Arctic sea ice is shrinking by up to 5% every ten years sea ice that not only provides hunting ground for polar bears, but shelter and transportation for seals, walrus, arctic foxes, and the Inuit people. The underside provides a surface for algae that support cod, char, beluga, and narwhal. The white sea ice also has a cooling effect on climate by reflecting light away from Earth's surface. As it melts, the global warming advances even more quickly.
