    "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"

    Dunno, but it's happening, and mankind is probably playing a part.

    Climate change is happening, and I think we're contributing to it. To what degree though, I don't know, and I'm not sure anyone does for sure.

    That's why I think it's smart to take reasonable, measured steps to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions over time. Don't do nothing, and don't react in panic.

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

    That's reasonable. I'm afraid if we did something drastic that the results might be tragically unintended.

    I voted that I don't know the percentage. While I don't necessarily believe that man is the sole cause (I haven't personally delved into any scientific papers on the matter), I do believe that man has contributed to what is perhaps a naturally occurring period of warmth and that the contribution we have made may be cause for concern in that the warming may be occurring at a faster rate than it may otherwise be. As far as the extent of that contribution goes, I have no idea.

    Has anyone truly done the math on this ? ( I haven,'t yet ) .. It appears that any measurable AGW is more political poppycock for the masses. The arrogance of mankind, thinking he controls or substantially influences nature, is boggling.

    Re: What percentage of climate change do you believe or know is man made?

    I voted for the 40-60%, Based on the assumption that most of the increase in CO2
    is likely ether Human added or not subtracted due to deforestation.
    The direct response of CO2 appears to account for most of the observed temperature increase,
    so I would put Human activity at about half.

    Climate changes somewhat constantly. Man has an indeterminate effect mainly due to development and zero to do with CO2.
    It is primarily natural, cyclical and complex.
    There is nothing man can do to change this.

    Man can reduce pollution which is a good thing for many other reasons.

    Fair question.

    But I honestly do not know.

    My guess is it is mostly man made.

    Whatever man might or might not be doing that could affect climate in theory, nature will do what is its wont and will naturally overwhelm whatever affect our activity might have had otherwise.
    That's why climate models always fail and always will.
    When the volcano in Iceland blows you might get a cooling period afterwards.
    We're puny.
