What do you think about the effect on people comparing man-made global warming with the detonation of 345,600 atomic bombs every day?
I believe in powerful pictures. We need them to fight the climate change denial movement, which consists of deranged irresponsible people, but who unfortunately have hired superior marketing professionals fooling Americans successfully.
Suppose human industrialization had not increased the level of CO2 in the atmosphere. Let’s go back to the time when the average Earth temperature was about 0.85 degrees Celsius cooler (about 2 Fahrenheit) than today.
How many Hiroshima bombs do you need to detonate to warm up the Earth by this amount?
The stunning answer is 345,600 bombs per day, year after year after year.
And this goes on and on and on, which means today January 19, 2014 humanity put an additional amount of CO2 into the atmosphere with the equivalent effect of the heat produced by 345,600 atomic bombs. Tomorrow
January 20, 2014 another 345,600 atomic bombs detonate
January 21, 2014 another 345,600 atomic bombs detonate
January 22, 2014 another 345,600 atomic bombs detonate
January 23, 2014 another 345,600 atomic bombs detonate
Getting the picture? How does this feel? Feels serious?
I read this in a German magazine. I search the net a bit and found this
Do you think such comparisons are useful? Or will the deniers just ignore them?
