    Thank god no one listened to the man made climate change believers in the 1970s when they suggested some drastic solutions.

    The cooling world - Washington Times
    Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve.

    "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"

    I think there is climate change but have not a lot of faith that the world community will do anything about it or can. If it is main made then the population growth alone since 1900 is a factor along with deforestation along with other factors aside from fossil fuels. The goal of politicians talking about climate change is power and influence as evidenced by some who are hypocritical about their use of fossil fuels.

    The number you're looking for is .28%.

As far as the extent of that contribution goes, I have no idea.

    The direct response of CO2 appears to account for most of the observed temperature increase,
    so I would put Human activity at about half.
    ..and you would be wrong. The number is .28%.

    What would the Climate idiots do in the little ice age?
    What would they say in the last REAL ice age?
    What about that they used to have vineyards in Britain?
    What about the harbor Claudius built, that is now 10 miles inland?

    Guess what. Climate changes. It always has, and always will. Time to build better and cheaper homes.
    Not make stuff more expensive. USA 80% nuke is the solution.

    00.01% - 20% (please specify the percentage)
    20.01% - 40% (please specify the percentage)
    40.01% - 60% (please specify the percentage)
    60.01% - 80% (please specify the percentage)
    80.01% - 100% (please specify the percentage)
    I don't know the percentage,but think/know man-made climate change is happening
    I believe/know climate change is a 100% natural.
    Not sure what kind of climate change is going on.
    I do not believe in natural or man-made climate change.Climate never changes.


    A poster suggested something like this in another thread.I am sure those who think or know climate change is real have good idea of how much climate change is caused by people.
    Scientists who study the climate already agree that humans are responsible for the current global warming, but do they even know by how much?

    Edit: I did find this one snippet:
    Since 1950, the report's authors say, humanity is clearly responsible for more than half of the observed increase in temperatures.
    BBC News - IPCC climate report: humans 'dominant cause' of warming

    So unless someone can find something better I'll just go with 40-60% for now.

    You have to specify a timeframe.

    All of that data is from the early 2000's and late 1990's. I don't even think that research was peer-reviewed, considering it came from a stone-age website devoted to "West Virginia Plan Fossils"

    The science is overwhelming - CO2 is not a pollutant, but rather a trace gas that is the most important molecule necessary for life to be sustained on this planet. Natural forces - most notably the sun - drive our climate, and while man has contributed to a very small amount of warming, it is in no way dangerous.

    CO2 levels have been higher in the past - much higher; temps have been higher in the past - much higher; we emerged from a little ice age (LIA) in the 1880's and began to warm naturally; the middle ages were much warmer than today - the Medieval Warm Period; the Roman Period was warmer than today; the 1930's were warmer than today; on and on...

    After examining as much scientific data and evidence as possible - the only logical conclusion is that man does not drive climate in the least; but rather, the boogeyman known as Anthropogenic Global Warming is the only thing that is manmade, and the purpose is obviously that it be used as a vehicle to advance a leftist agenda that is designed to increase controls over every person on earth.

    AGW has nothing whatsoever to do with the environment - it has everything to do with power and money.
