Baby Boomer Generation is Concerned About Global Warming

June 4th, 2008
There is no doubt that Baby Boomers can make a huge impact on solving the problem of global warming.
The vast majority of scientists agree that global warming is real and that it is the result of our activities and not a natural occurrence.

Carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. However, by burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and clearing forests we have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere and temperatures are rising.

We’re already seeing changes. Glaciers are melting, plants and animals are being forced from their habitat, and the number of severe storms and droughts are increasing. Category 4 and 5 hurricanes have almost doubled in the last 30 years and the flow of ice from glaciers in Greenland has more than doubled over the past decade.

If the warming continues, we can expect catastrophic consequences. Global sea levels could rise by more than 20 feet with the loss of shelf ice in Greenland and Antarctica, devastating coastal areas worldwide. Heat waves will be more frequent and more intense, droughts and wildfires will occur more often and the Arctic Ocean could be ice free in summer by 2050. More than a million species worldwide could be driven to extinction by 2050.

The United States, with only four percent of the world’s population, is responsible for 22% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. A rapid transition to energy efficiency and renewable energy sources will combat global warming, protect human health, create new jobs, protect habitat and wildlife, and ensure a secure, affordable energy future.

Fortunately, the science also tells us how we can begin to make significant repairs to try and reverse those impacts, but only through immediate action.

There is no doubt that Baby Boomers can make a huge impact on solving this problem. In fact, we have a moral obligation to do so. That’s why we urge you to join us by spreading the word and sharing this with others. Our collective power will force governments, corporations, and politicians everywhere to pay attention. Small changes to our daily routine can add up to big differences in helping to stop global warming.

The time to come together to solve this problem is now!
