Nope! The world will still be here....
Answered By: Max - 1/25/2007
No, the world will keep going and repair itself. It has happened before (but maybe not to the same extent). The end will only be for most living things, but the world will keep going and life will return.

.Either that..or meteors,war. I know when you say end..you mean life as we know it now...not the complete decimation of the planet.

The world no but it's inhabitants, yes.

Well it didn't the last time! The time spans of climatic change are to large a subject for "Answers" let's just say that in real terms, it's not a long time since it happened before, it was before the last ice age, and that was only 15,000 years ago, the world is 7,5 Billion years old, gave or take! (7500,000,000.)

no. Once the ice caps have melted enough the gulf stream will be so compromised that it'll send us back into a mini ice-age, cos it's the gulf stream that keeps a large chunk of the globe temperate.

Absolutely not. The earth naturally warms and cools itself; it has for millions of years. As it does so, the face of the earth changes greatly. Oceans rise and fall, volacanoes become more or less active, species flourish and die off. Life on the planet may be in jeopardy during these shifts, but adaptation allows some... More

NO, not at all, at worst it will displace hundreds of millions of people from low lying cities. i think a recent british piece of research said tempertaures could rise by as much as 4degrees C in next hundred years (which is a lot) if so we need to think about adapting NOW.

No if you look at the science - what will happen is the warming will produce more moisture (rain) which will in turn cool the earth back down

I doubt it very much.Nature has a way of healing itself if left alone.Global warming at the moment is blamed on our carbon emissions,according to scientists unless we cut our emmissions the ice caps will melt causing massive amounts of flooding,and the global temperature will rise considerably.If these two things...

Not end it but change it as we know it. The earth has been through global warming before, the earth has naturally in pre history gone through dramatic climate changes that have change the map of the world. Earth will continue to change but unlike dinosaurs and large woolly mamals we can change and adapt with it.

No. Global warming is a natural process... More

The world has gone through many changes of climate and survived them all so far. I expect it will do so many time more.

No it will reach a point when it stops and the ice age Begin's again... all part of natures cycle
Answered By: STINGER - 1/25/2007
Global warming's occured before so it comes & goes in cycles in nature. The key now is to find out how much is natural vs how much is human-related.

Global Warming? Hell No!! We're in the middle of an ice age, in 100 000 years time, this big ball will freeze over again! The only thing that will destroy earth is the sun when it dies (will swell up and swallow all planets as far as jupiter). Human's aren't helping global warming but it's a natural process.
Answered By: maffyb_88 - 1/25/2007
Well, yes of course -- but not in the way you may believe! You see, a few billion years from now, our Sun will expand due to the depletion of its fuel. This expansion will, according to scientists, make the sun so large, that it will engulf the first three planets. (About this time, Mars will be looking pretty good... More

no, but the people and animals.
Answered By: strawbarrycheey - 1/25/2007
Far from it. The global average temp was as much as 10 degrees Celcius hotter than now about 60 million years ago, and the CO2 concentration in the air was possibly 10 times the current levels. Even if we continue to abuse the atmosphere, most forcasts will only get us to about a 5 degree change... More
Answered By: Dr Fred - 1/25/2007
No, you needn't worry about that. The temperature of the earth has only increased about 6/10 of 1 degree (C) from 1880 to 2005. That is an increase of about 1 degree (F) in 125 years.

No, we just have another ice age.
Answered By: alabama - 1/26/2007
Global warming will certainly not end the world, but it may have an impact on life over the next 50-200 years. Being great survivors, and living in a temperature range between as low as -40C and as high as 30C and more, the human species is extraordinarily adaptable... More
