    It's quite obvious that the globe is warming rapidly, that our CO2 emissions are the primary cause, and that it will lead to significant problems in the decades ahead.

    It's not a question of belief any more than the heliocentric solar system is.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Then go start your on poll.

    This one seems fine to me.

    Maybe you should make a new one with percentages.

    You at least recognize that you disagree with ~97% of the global scientific community right? That man made climate change is unequivocally settled science?

    I didn't say you had to. Just a suggestion. Perhaps you'd like to discuss the merits of the suggestion?

    Much as science can determine the age of the Earth, it can also determine the cause of climate change. Obviously, in the past natural processes have caused the climate to change, but we know they were due to levels of CO2. When the levels increase, Earth experienced a warming due to greenhouse effects. When the levels drop, Earth was cooled. There is no denying humans contribute a great deal of CO2 into our atmosphere and that has an impact on our planet.

    I believe the earth goes through natural cycles.

    I believe we have an effect on this earth that can clearly affect the climate in a negative manner.

    I believe many of the things that we are asked to do (conservation, focus on clean renewable energy sources, etc) are positive things to do for our future (cleaner air, more available resources for future generations)- even if these things have no effect on climate change.
