GLOBAL WARMING AND ITS ADVANTAGES
It is apparent that this is an important environmental issue that most people believe is not occurring. With almost all bad situations it is very frequently that we have something positive come out of it.

I do not see anything good come out of this situation other than everything happens for a reason and well that reason I have not figured out yet.

Although it has been known that many people in Russia because of the crucial cold weather freeze to death, studies show that over time we learn to adapt to higher temperatures...
