    And the largest problem with the "Man Made Global Warming" pushers is that they have a belief ("Man is causing it"), and then some statistics. And they are constantly shifting the theories to mesh the belief with the statistics. This is piss-poor science.

    If you can even call it "Science", because I do not.

    So what are we left with? A lot of double-talk. You hear things like "This may have ended the ice age", or "This may cause a mini ice age", but then on the next breath claims like "Man does cause global warming".

    And there are so many side-steps in the "Theory" that all of the scientists might as well go to Radio City Music Hall and try out for the Rockettes.

    Re: Is Global Warming a myth?

    And for those that believe in "Man Made Global Warming", answer me this:

    Did humans put out more or less CO2 in the 2000's then they did in the 1990's?

    Is CO2 causing or not causing "Global Warming"?

    If we pushed out more in the 2000's, then why was it cooler then the 1990's? Because that makes absolutely no sense to me. You might as well tell me "You turn the thermostat on the stove to 200. You then turn it up to 220 and it will drop the stove to 190".

    Like I said, junk science.

    CO2 is indirectly causing global warming. Because it increases rate of evaporation, it increases the amount of water vapor in the atmosphere, therefore a hotter environment. The CO2 content of the atmosphere is about 380 ppm or so.

    Because the CO2 is indirectly causing the climate change, and because it is so sparse in the atmosphere, vastly increasing the amount of CO2 increases the temperature in a minor way.

    Could you also cite the decrease in temperature?

    We are left with the consensus by mainstream science that man is contributing to global warming.

    The only debate is from those that believe it is all just a conspiracy on a world wide scale over the decades.

    I expect that debate will last until we have billions of homeless refugees due to climate changes, who knows possibly beyond that!

    The leaders of the world have moved on to action to reduce our contribution to global warming.

    Have you ever heard me say I thought it was a conspiracy?

    Remember, 70 years ago eugenics was considered a legitimate science. Science was once sure the Earth was the center of the Solar System (if not the Universe). And they had elaborate graphs and charts and formulas to prove this was true.

    My debate is many things. Not enough is known, not enough is understood, and the samples are of much to short of a period of time to even try to claim they know "the truth".

    Not to mention that the correct term is "theory", not "fact". Because for most things that is the real term.

    The "Big Bang" is just a theory, so is Evolution. And so is "Man Made Global Warming". And remember, most people do believe in Global Warming, they just dispute the cause.

    What do you attribute the recent climate change to then?

    If you think all of mainstream science is wrong, the only conclusion is that you think it is a conspiracy.

    Remember, 70 years ago eugenics was considered a legitimate science. Science was once sure the Earth was the center of the Solar System (if not the Universe). And they had elaborate graphs and charts and formulas to prove this was true.
    Eugenics was never an accepted theory by all of the world's scientific organizations of National and International standing.

    My debate is many things. Not enough is known, not enough is understood, and the samples are of much to short of a period of time to even try to claim they know "the truth".

    Not to mention that the correct term is "theory", not "fact". Because for most things that is the real term.

    The "Big Bang" is just a theory, so is Evolution. And so is "Man Made Global Warming". And remember, most people do believe in Global Warming, they just dispute the cause.
    The Big Bang has not received concurrence by all of mainstream science as AGW has been.

    What reason do you have to believe that all of mainstream science is wrong, other than its a conspiracy?

    There have been no natural changes that could cause it that have not been scientifically ruled out in this case.

    You have no proof there have been so many lies nothing is believable and the GW scientist have no credibility.
