Global Warming is here, yes it is. But it is not our fault. When the news, magazines, etc. talk about global warming they are trying to scare us. By scaring us we become more materialistic. We become worried about if something is made safely or how it affects the environment when we are done with it. So basically we buy stuff that is more expensive because it was made in an environmentally "safe" way. The truth is that global warming is a natural phenomenon. The earth was much hotter during the time of the dinosaurs than what it is now. Then it cooled down and began a series of ice ages. Obviously the earth had to warm up from the last great ice age to what it is now.
I'm telling you that global warming is natural. It isn't a side effect of us burning fossil fuels. It is a natural result of the earths trip around the sun, the movement of tectonic plates, and an all around natural cycle that the earth goes through. Scientists say that the increase of temperature is much higher since the 1980's, but how do they really know? We obviously weren't around to watch glaciers melt after the last great ice age, so they don't really know. It's all a ploy and a scare tactic. It has been said before, on this site and elsewhere, but i want to reiterate that even if everyone in the world stopped doing anything that emitted "greenhouse gasses" the earth would continue to warm up at the same rate.
News: The earth gained 3 extra degrees today bumping it's average up to 125. In light of this massive heat wave you don't want to make global warming worse so go buy that "environmentally safe" air conditioner.
Dumb person watching news: Wow i gotta be safe about this and protect my environment.
