Gore presents a graph demonstrating a connection between CO2 levels and temperature during 600.000 years based on samples of polar ice profundos.1 In that time period CO2 levels have ranged between 180 and 280 parts per million ( ppm). The level today is about 400 ppm, well above what has been seen in more than half a million years. Gore said that that level will rise to 600 ppm if something is not done quickly.
Gore described the dramatic changes that are taking place in the world because of global warming. Shows photos of the last 15 to 30 years of glaciers more than 10,000 years and compares them with photos of the last two years. It 's impressive to see how fast they are disappearing! We also see the famous "snows of Kilimanjaro" in 1970 and then in 2005: there is only a small strip of ice.
The film explains that many recent scientific studies confirm that the top layer of the oceans has warmed and that produce stronger hurricanes. It is not possible to attribute to global warming a given storm like Katrina, but a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology indicates that storms that…
