The best place to live will be Great Britain.

Northern California (north of the central valley), Oregon, and Washington will also be ok .

These areas currently enjoy relatively mild summertime temperatures, and cold (but not brutal) winters. If current projections are accurate, temperatures in this region may increase by approximately 5 degrees Celsius during the coming 25-50 years: growing seasons will be a bit longer, and the adequate water resources should still be sufficient (unless increasing quantities of water are diverted southward).

(A very important comment about the above answer and a truly BEST place to live during global warming is cited below)

In all reality, there will be no truly stable areas sustainable for large communities located on continental land masses. As the global system absorbs more energy, the thermal highs and lows in a given area will become far more prominent, areas such as northern California and up into Southern Washington will experience on average a bit higher temp but on the temperature swings they will experience extreme cold snaps and extreme heat waves also, thus destroying much of the growing seasons with the extreme weather swings. Perhaps upon the continents a region such as northern California up into Washington may be "better" than other continental regions, but it certainly is not the "Best" place to be on our planet, not by a long shot.

Keep in mind we are dealing with gases (air), liquids (H20, water), solids (soils) and finally… radiant energy (sunshine). We are really talking about a system that is being charged with more radiant energy than is familiarly normal and in this case we've an outcome that equals additional heat. We need to consider heat based systems, thermal absorption and transfer. A continental environment does not represent the best of all places to be during such an event. Not by a long shot.

Continental environments contain more solids (soils) and solids are not thermal transfer friendly as they are really considered thermal insulators. The two best mediums for thermal transfer are found in one particular condition of matter - fluids. Of fluids, liquids (like water/H2O) are far better at transferring thermal energy compared to the other form in the state of gasses (air/our atmosphere).

The ocean plays the biggest role in keeping a stable global temperature. Without it… we'd all be dead very quickly. Thus the answer lays in the most responsible product for keeping global thermal stability; the ocean. Obviously we cannot live in the ocean without a submersible structure, but, we can certainly surround ourselves by it upon natural land masses. The more ocean and deep water you can get around you with a substantial island under your feet and the closer you can get to one of the two tropic latitudes, the better off you're going to be.

The BEST place to be located is upon the larger remote Islands within the deep oceans near the equator or even better situated near the tropic lines. Hawaii is a prime example as to why such remote islands will weather best for their human inhabitance. The surrounding ocean and its surface water temperatures will help tremendously in stabilizing the lower elevation atmospheric temperatures within comfortable levels. Consider Florida for example, with temperatures that often reach 100F+ while at a latitude further north than Hawaii. Where Hawaii experiences extremely stable year round temperatures in the 80's near ocean elevations all the while being situated far closer to the equator where the atmosphere should theoretically be hotter than Florida. Florida is surrounded by vast shoal (shallow) waters and therein lays the dilemma.

These perfect conditions in Hawaii are due to several factors. Hawaii experiences more moderate and stable temperatures because it is fully surrounded by deep remote ocean waters and because it has a near stable exposure to the sun all year round. The deep waters mix with the warmer surface waters of the sun about the island effectively cooling the warmer waters and keeping the island cooler during the day in the sunshine. Whereas during the evening the warmed surface waters continue to heat the lower elevation atmosphere via evaporation keeping the air moderately warm during the evenings. Thus Hawaii has a near perfect natural thermal control system built into its environment that fits human needs to near perfection, whereas no such place can be found in a continental environment.

Hawaii has two fairly stable factors, a near stable solar exposure and a stable deep ocean temperature. The surface waters about the island are locked between two opposites in energy absorption and transmission and we've a greater mass (water) in fluid dynamics to consider. The averaged outcome is experienced and enjoyed by the lower elevation inhabitance of the island.

Global warming will have less influence on the temperatures in Hawaii and far greater influence on continental land masses. Hurricanes/Typhoons may become more prevalent in Hawaii but none the less, because of its remote location, such storms will always be less likely an extreme threat comparatively to the extremes that will be manifest on and around the continental environments.

Granted things such as reefs may experience some magnitude of demise, but the growth of food on land and such will always be safer and yield far greater variety of crops on an island such as Hawaii vs. a continental region in a global warming trend. There is no good place to live from global warming except on another planet.

Global warming is the recent, rather speedy (over 200 years) increase in the temperature of the earth.

Alone we can make a difference , but together we can change the world and protect our mother earth from global warming!

The best thing you can do for global warming is to focus on reducing your energy consumption, because the real issue facing the planet is our dwindling global energy resources. The science indicates that global warming is a natural phenomenon and as such there is little humans can do to stop it, or the global cooling cycle which will follow.

WHY? For the very best of reasons - FACT.

There are two views on whether global warming is real: the view of the overwhelming majority of climate scientists and the views of non-scientists. Most children are being taught the scientific view of global warming, which is that global warming is really happening. After all, by the time many of them are adults, they will have to cope with some of the problems expected to occur as a result of global warming.

These are at best Well Intentioned and are at worst Non-Existent.

Global warming is one of the major problems in the world and there are ways to prevent it that individuals should do. Best of it is the reduction of emission of carbon dioxide in the air.

Global warming is already happening and wont suddenly occur all at once. As the glaciers melt the water levels will slowly rise and more land and islands will be under the water level. The higher the elevation the better it will be.

Earth is slowly dying save her go green

Fact about global warming are most trustworthy on science websites as well as Wikipedia. The best sites for that might also include regional and national sites with news.

hey hey my litle homey i no u dont no me. my name is little princess and u could be my prince. global warming is a deadly pricer to pay, and for what? my soorow and dismay

Global warming can be prevented if we all take part into preventing, clean up the problem areas, and educate the youngs.

Plenty of people around the world are doing the best they can to stop global warming kill us even sooner. They are saving electricity, hot water and reducing the toxins in our air by walking or riding a bike instead of using a car. If you are not doing these things to help reduce the effects of global warming, you might as well because YOU could be dead in 20years or when global warming takes over!

"the best solution to our current global warming crisis is..."

Yes, every bit of electricity you use adds to global warming, unless it comes from renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro, etc). Standby devices are estimated to be 10% of your power bill. So turning your gadgets off at the wall will lower your power bills, but won't do much to stop global warming (unless everyone in the world is doing the same). The best way to fix global warming is to elect governments with the will to act.

Filipinos had experienced the bad effect of global warming due to the recent flood they experienced that killed thousands of people. I think they are doing their best now to make a remedy out of the environmental depletion are world is experiencing these days.

On Earth Day, everyone shows awareness of 'earthy' things, like Global Warming and Polution, and we try out best not to do those kinds of things. If everyday was like that and we cared more about our earth, we wouldn't have to deal with Global Warming.

One of the best sources for information on global warming is The Natural Resources Defense Council. You can find them online, where they have a plethora of useful information posted, or, you can contact their main office at 212-727-2700 for information.
