    There is no need to "believe" in global warming, the evidence is overwhelming and it speaks for itself. The good thing about facts is that they are true whether one believes in them or not.

    Well then! Thanks for proving me on two different fields. Whether it's through visual descriptions or instrumental recording, weather has been recorded for well over 100 years. Remember, for his statement to be true, recording of weather patterns would only go back to 1914. However, we know that is laughable. So, thanks to your link we now know that weather records using instruments has been around for 160+ years and basic visual descriptions of the weather go back over 2400 years AT LEAST.

    So we agree that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and has gone thru many weather cycles and will go thru many more weather cycles once humans are no longer on this planet. Maybe I misunderstood your stand on man being responsible for the so called global warming. My point was that man is NOT responsible for the so called folklore of global warming.

    That was never in question.

    and has gone thru many weather cycles and will go thru many more weather cycles once humans are no longer on this planet.
    You're not really sure what you're debating are you? Global warming is a fact that is not disputed by anyone who passed their 7th grade science class. The debate centers around whether it's man made or natural. I'm starting to think that you're being deliberately obtuse.

    Maybe I misunderstood your stand on man being responsible for the so called global warming.
    No, you didn't. However, you have completely misunderstood every post which I've made. You lack even a basic knowledge of meteorological history or what it's used for. You seem to not even understand the relevance of your statements on whatever it is you're discussing. I'll give you a clue, there is none. As a matter of fact, what you've just said in this thread can be collectively construed as some of the most laughably ignorant things posted on the subject. To paraphrase Billy Madison:

    At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    The fact that you ever thought I was struggling is by far the most baffling thing in this entire discussion.

    Now you really are struggling. Once again you prove my point. "the debate centers around whether it's man made or natural".
    Duh, my whole point is that it is NOT man made. My whole point was that it is natural. You don't need a weather man to know which way the wind blows. Are you really that dense?

    Yes, that's nice, honey. However, scientific data seems to point to the fact that recent rises in temperature have been caused in part by man. To what degree is still being discussed.

    You really are that dense. You have shown some "opinions" and "when to grow crops" data. As I said earlier you are really struggling, you are all over the place and make no sense at all.

    Lmao. You're not sure what a weather cycle is ...are you? I'll give you a clue: Weather cycles and records have around for well over 100 years. They've been measured through instruments for over 100 years and they've been visually observed for 2400 years. You were proven false. Get over it.

    The earth is warming up, that's clear. It's also clear that greenhouse gas emissions can contribute to the warming effect, but I think it's less clear exactly how much they're causing the current warming trend, and how much of it is natural. That shouldn't be a reason not to take steps to mitigate the effects of climate change and lower greenhouse gas emissions though.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
