What Is Global Warming?
- It's one of the hottest topics (no pun intended) in the weather and science world today.
Global Warming is what some scientists say is the result of an increase in carbon dioxide emissions from human technology.
Factories, power plants, and especially cars have carbon dioxide in their exhaust. As more and more people drive and as technology expands, we're increasing the amount of carbon dioxide we're releasing into the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide acts like a blanket in the atmosphere, trapping the sun's warmth in the atmosphere instead of letting it radiate back to space, increasing the Earth's temperature.
Some of the recent years have been some of the warmest recorded in history, but then again, weather records span but an instant in the Earth's geological time, so to some, it's too early to say for sure if Global Warming is indeed happening. But the debate continues.

My son Keoni Bananola Lamar is 8yr old. The video is when he was 6yrs. He started doing flips on a trampoline in his grandma back yard when he was 5yr. From the first time he got on the trampoline I knew he was fearless.
As my friend and I were headed back from an adventurous day of hiking up Summit Peak and Summit Lake in the Carbon river area of the park, we came into a little clearing just in time to see a beautiful sunset on Mount Rainier and the lenticular cloud that had just formed just above it.
