2016 is again the warmest year on record for the planet EARTH, seceding 2014 and then 2015 in that category.
The exact amount of global warming that is caused by the continued burning of fossil fuels is hard to determine. However the one thing we know for certain is that the growth of the amount of carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere is ever increasing and the temperature of the planet is ever increasing.
Carbon dioxide in now up to 404 parts per million, up from 280 parts per million in pre industrial times.
Methane is now up to 1840 parts per billion, up from 700 parts per bilion in pre industrial times. (Methane is 28 times more potent as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide).
The effects of global warming are evident all over the globe. The Artic Antartic and Greenland ice caps and glaciers around the globe are visually diminishing. The sea level is rising and storms and droughts have become more severe than in the near past.
Utilizing hydrogen fuel eliminates the carbon dioxide and methane releases caused by most human activity so hydrogen is the obvious answer to eliminating the warming strain on the fragile Earth we all call home!
