    Do you believe in global warming, and If so, what is causing it?

    I don't pretend to know everything, and I think there are a lot of factors involved but how can one deny that it is happening?

    Here's an amazing video caught on camera of the largest glacial ice calving in recorded history. At the end it shows the accelerated rate at which this particular glacier has been disappearing.

    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

    Before the war is ended, the war party assumes the divine right to denounce and silence all opposition to war as unpatriotic and cowardly.
    - Robert M. LaFollette, Wisconsin Governor and U.S. Senator

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    That global warming, its causes, and its effects are considered subject to belief is a huge problem to start with. The same as evolution, vaccines, or any other part of science. It's not up to a vote. It's just the facts.

    I believe global warming and cooling are something that occurs naturally and on it's own and has been going on for billions of years.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Global Warming is a natural part of Climate Change.
    Global Warming is a scare term used by politicians...
    Climate change is real and humans are contributing to CO2 emissions that are Greenhouse Gases.
    It is India and China that are the major, and I mean major, contributors of Greenhouse Gases......

    **** happens...

    When it comes to a subject of science I tend to trust the scientists over some blowhard on national radio.

    Severe and miniscule changes in climate occur naturally.

    Re: Do you believe in global warming, and If so, what is causing it?

    I believe there is global warming and that it is mostly/natively caused by man...to what extent that warming is occurring, I do not know.

    I also believe that this woman might one day come to life, be intelligent, honorable and everything emotionally I want in a woman AND be completely in love with me.



    So...





    Seriously, I did vote #1.

    Poll is a false dichotomy. The question is not either/or, it's how much of each. Ones position is better represented by a percentage.
