Fossil relative dating activity
Interestingly, the 2014 NCA reported that satellite sensors measuring the sun’s output over the past 50 years have recorded no overall increase in the sun’s output.
This clearly proves that the sun is not responsible for global warming.
● Longer frost-free periods for plant growth can increase the growth of beneficial plants, as well as ragweed.
Some fruit-bearing trees will be impacted by the loss of frost days, as fruit production is often dependent on a tree receiving a specific number of frost days during dormancy.

CO2 is the chemical result of the burning process which occurs when carbon is introduced into oxygen.
To a lesser degree, agricultural practices also contribute to methane emissions, which are far more long-lived in the atmosphere, but are far less abundant than CO2 emissions.
With a comprehensive federal assessment of global warming, all levels of private and public decision-making can be better informed and equipped for effectively shaping future policy.
The assessment clearly outlines what effect global warming is already having on our lives, our livelihoods, and our future.
As reported in the 2014 National Climate Assessment, the following facts and figures are outlined to better help us understand the current and critical realities of global warming: ● Primarily human-induced, the global warming of the past 50 years is due to accumulating heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.
The green band shows changes over the last century due to natural forces alone, as simulated by climate models.
The blue band shows model simulations of the effects of human and natural forces combined.
A2 assumes continued increases in emissions, and B1 assumes significant emissions reductions.
