    I like how voting on facts has become a thing around here. So enlightening!

    Option: "I don't know the percentage,but think/know man-made climate change is happening"

    I personally tend to think it's a small percentage, and perhaps a more localized thing.

    But I really have no idea, in the end - it could be 0 % or 100%

    This is more an attempt to find out where people stand on an issue that has become politically charged to such a degree that drowns out much if not all factual analysis and argument.

    The Earth is cooling and it is 100% natural.

    Actually, the factual analysis is quite clear and always has been. It's in the scientific journals.

    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.

    If its possible that warming can occur without humans and its possible that it can occur because of humans then how do you differentiate the two?

    It seems to me the credibility of climate scientists took a serious hit when their models failed to predict that there hasn't been warming over the last several years. I think 14. If they were able to tie warming with CO2 or other human activity then why didn't their model work?

    If the prescription for GW can't measure the impact on GW then why would we do anything? Plus, why would the US do anything when its India and China causing all the warming scientists say is occurring?

    Too many questions, not enough answers. We shouldn't take action simply because it makes us feel better or we can tell our friends that we support the earth or whatever.

    So you didn't check the references. NOAA, NASA, etc. Critical thinking is GOOD thing, blind acceptance without reason is a BAD thing. What's presented here is the foundational science that should be behind every bit of research being done. If it doesn't line up with these numbers, then the research should be considered to be flawed. It's like if you did study on the speed of falling objects in a vacuum and the results didn't line up with the basic formula for calculating acceleration. If you saw a study like, the critical thinker would question the study, not the universal constant. But with climate research, it's the foundational science that's getting ignored and people are simply accepting it blindly with no critical thinking, no objective analysis and no willingness to tell people that in spite of their degrees, they are wrong.

    Yet the people who are telling them they are wrong are.... people without degrees.

    You really dont think that the scientists in this area are quite familiar with the foundational science? You think you have some brilliant insight into this that the guys with PhDs in Physics just happened to overlook? You think not one scientist who sees this 'wrong' foundational science doesnt know he can get an endowed professorship with unlimited funding by proving the entire theory of AGW wrong (but they just havent gotten around to it because... what? )

    Critical thinking IS a good thing. Try it sometime.

    so I would put Human activity at about half.
    I almost picked that one, but selected the 20-40% instead. I'd say between land use, soot on ice, and CO2, it's about 40% give or take a little.

    References don't mean a thing if it's not peer reviewed. Countless other recent studies coming from those organizations are contradictory to your research. Those studies are also peer-reviewed.
