Do you believe that global warming exists?
If by global warming you mean the natural cycle of the earth warming & cooling, yes. If you mean the arrogant notion that man is so powerful that we have unilaterally changed the course of nature, absolutely not.
This is a lot of good information. www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/greenhouse_data.html
The U.S. has met and exceeded the Kyoto protocols and we didn't sign a damned treaty. The market is capable of adjusting to a false public perception to avoid controversy.
Duey, you're too smart for me to follow. Can you dumb it down a bit. I'm a simple man.
I believe in cycles of global climate change, and we happen to be in a warmimg trend right now...
Even though temps have leveled off for the last 15 years?
The planet warms and it cools in varying cycles. Anthropogenic warming may be occurring but with such a small sample size it is very much like one if these polls. Do we need to investigate yes should we panic no.
The fear of global warming was based on faulty science.
Man-made global warming in a hoax. The earth does go through natural warming cycles.
I voted no, from the perspective of a political agenda. Is there a natural "climate change" cycle. No debate. Having observed - & participated in - hysteria since late 60s, I've been forced, as matter of logic, to re-evaluate.
Reality does not support rhetoric. As matter of intellectual honesty, cannot ethically maintain earlier position. "Experts," based on results, cannot support conclusions. We are supposed to be in ice age now. Clearly, we are not.
This response takes one to the politically correct poll. Defenders & detractors can link to army of scientist to "support" their position. Having watched politically correct "correction of facts" by same scientists has required RE-evaluation.
I am actually surprised that so many people are voting no.
climate.nasa.gov/evidence climate change really is not debatable. If you think it is, you should really try to evaluate where that idea is sources from and who would stand to gain by debating a scientific consensus.
Is that because the hoax perpetrators won't debate it? www.forbes.com/sites/markhendrickson/2012/09/16/climate-change-hoax-or-crime-of-the-century/
Debate with whom, the author of that article who is an economist for "a conservative think tank strengthening faith and freedom... in America" and cites none of his claims? I'm not sure he is very credible.
Yes, of course.
In the 80's, our current secretary of energy argued that earth was rapidly cooling, then it was rapidly heating, and now it appears to be cooling once again. Natural process.
There are cycles in warming and cooling. The pass three years its been cooling. Hence the name change to Climate Change.
It does and it's been proven. The true issue was pointed out by Mr. L below. Yes, we as humans have made an impact and it's imperative to change things now to leave a possible & bearable future.
Perhaps. There has always been climate change. I don't believe it's man-made change though. Maybe when algore quits flying his private jet around the world then I'll reconsider. If he doesn't believe his own preaching then why should I?
So you will accept that man-made climate change is real when Al Gore stops using a private jet?
That's the first step I guess. :-)
Lol, I will write him a letter.
The existence of global warming isn't usually what's debated. What's debated is whether or not humans play as big of a role as many would like to believe.
I couldn't disagree more. There is a large group of scientists that view Al Gore's crusade as a political and economic ploy that highlights the natural warming cycle that occurs on earth. According to them, man's impact on this is negligible.
Please name those scientists.
And can you show me evidence of this? It's not the commonly discussed or debated about aspect of global warming, especially not at a government level or in the major science community.
