The perfect word to determine the user's intelligence; if it is used in a serious context, accepting its existence, taking into account several decades of cold, hard scientific evidence, then the user of the word is most likely intelligent. If it is used as part of a suggested conspiracy theory or to call liberals idiots, the user of the word is most likely unintelligent.
Intelligent person: "Oh God, is that true? Global warming has caused the ice caps to shrink THAT much in the last 10 years? Only a fool would fail to realize that the earth's temperature is rising at an unnatural rate!"
Unintelligent person: "Global warming? It's 55 in February where I am! That's progressives for ya, trying to invent things that don't amount to diddly, just so they can raise taxes, take our guns, prosecute heterosexuals and burn our churches."

Global warming is the natural process by which the average yearly temperature of the earth gradually raises. Yes, humans do affect global warming, but barely. The problem is that environmentalists use crappy equipment (home thermometers, for example, rather than the far far more precise weather balloons used by legit scientists), and think we have a huge effect on global warming. Most environmentalists don't really have or use very accurate equipment or methods, so they come up with skewed ideas.

This is basically because no one or two people know exactly how to research all of the details needed to study the environment, you need large groups of scientists that study in many different fields to truely record accurate information.

There are some environmentalists that just go around and record their own inaccurate information, and go around generalizing and extrapolating ideas based on false information. The results they usually come up with are that humans have a large effect on global warming. Even worse, many of them don't even do studies, they just accept the false studies of others, which leads to the illusion that it has a lot of support by studies. The theory that humans have a large effect on global warming is so widely accepted because many people disregard hard facts for a skewed concept because it attracts attention when someone tells you that we are destroying our world; its another part of human nature that doesn't fit in well with the modern world (like our indulgence in eating).

There are other environmentalists (yes, real, legitimate environmentalists not politicians, or anyone who wants to sabotage the environmentalists, I'm getting sick of these stupid conspiracy theories) that study the environment using the other method mentioned above that uses many scientists that specialize in many fields of study to accurately record information. They find that humans do have an effect, but a very VERY miniscule one, on global warming.

The following is a letter that I wrote to an environmentalist foundation that believes humans have a large effect on global warming. Of everything they have publish, I found nothing but unfounded information; none of it was backed up by any hard facts, and if they ever used "facts" they were rarely used and they were very skewed because of flawed measurements. All of the data and information that I said in my letter is based 100% on studies done by the legitimate environmentalists that use scientists that specialize in many fields to record accurate information.

(the quote at the beginning is from their website)

“Dear (environmentalist foundation),

‘Global warming isn’t opinion. Its a scientific reality. The science tells us that human activity has made enormous impacts to our planet that affect our well-being and even our survival as a species.’

That is absolutely right! The only problem is... WHAT ARE YOUR SCIENTIFIC FACTS?!?!? Yes, you say that we can cut down by this that and the other and reduce our input towards global warming, but have you actually any idea how much humans affect global warming? Here’s the real facts, not just vague statements saying that we affect global warming "a lot." :

Of the 186 Billion tons of Carbon Dioxide let out into the atmosphere every year, 6 Billion tons come from humans, A meager 3.2%

In the past 20 years, we have been in a COOLING trend... yes of course, it is short term, and we are in an overall warming trend, but doesn't that go to show you that if humans have greatly increased our affect on global warming in those past 20 years, yet we still are cooling, that we have essentially no effect?

The fact is that humans have actually less than .3% an effect on the overall global warming, that’s 3/1000!

Now, humans do have an overwhelmingly small effect on global warming, but the fact of the matter is, that if effect that we have on global warming was isolated and all of the other natural effects disappeared, then one millennium from now, the earth will be as warm as it would be in three years if there was still natural influence. And incase you don’t understand that, it basically says it takes human influence 1000 years to warm the earth as much as the earth naturally warms in three years.

I don't think its worth asking the government for TRILLIONS (that is what they are asking for now incase you haven't realized) of dollars to have a miniscule effect on something that essentially isn't even affecting global warming. And also, most of our very small effect on global warming will still be there even if we do spend that money.

Drew Nutter”
As one of those non-legit environmentalists would say, "Oh look, the earth is getting warmer! I think humans effect it. OH CRAP! GUESS WHAT! I can blame it on the politicians to make my political party look better! Let's go exploit false scientific ideas and spend oodles of money, just so we can get MY political party leaders in office!"

Thats not their only motive, some actually want to help but aren't good at what they do, but there are a good number of them that actually think that.

Just incase you forgot what I was defining cuz my definition is so long, it was Global Warming.

1- A natural process by which the earth warms up from trapping the heat of the sun within the atmosphere. This process has been occurring for hundreds of millions of years. For more information read a fucking book.

2- A very controversial issue that has been the topic of much debate, media coverage, lies, misinterpretations, and whatever the fuck else you can think of. Essentially the issue is represented by a few groups of people;

A) REAL scientists who research this issue using the proper scientific method in order to propose theories, and learn the facts about what is going on. In addition real scientist always have the proper education and experience in the relevant fields. Often bribed, and terrorized into saying things they know aren't true

B) The Masters, essentially the group of people who understand that global warming is much more than just an environmental issue but more importantly, a way of promoting their own agendas. The masters exist above the bullshit of the common mans world so it is they that control the planet as a whole. ex. The greatest of the political elites, major corporations, people that run the media etc.

C) Environmentalists, this group by far is the most prevalent in the public and the most outspoken, they consist of every arrogant douche bag imaginable who think that they know everything about global warming despite most likely having little to no knowledge (probably just saw An Inconvenient Truth), their sole purpose is to coax sheep, and destroy skeptics with their a system of scare tactics and brainwashing- not unlike fascist dictators and terrorists, and saying stuff like if you don't believe in global warming (man made or otherwise) your comparable to a natzi war criminal.

D) skeptics, people who generally don't follow the current belief that humans are the the major cause of the temperature rise because they have been educated better and have a mind of their own. They are systematically hunted by the environmentalists.

E)Unbelievers, a subgroup of skeptics- these people are just too lazy to believe in global warming and as an extension are dumb as shit.

F) Sheep- see sheep
1) Do i really need an example just a read a fucking book.

A) The hard working men and women who want nothing more than to learn the truth about our world, they are the tools of this war.

B) The leaders of Greenpeace (yeah thats right they don't give a shit about the planet), Rupert Murdoch, Illuminati, The Man.

C) Al gore, every jack ass at an environmental rally, or blogger preaching about it.

D) Anyone that has read a book, done research themselves and come to the reasonable conclusion that maybe we aren't the cause of global warming.

E) Like skeptics minus the books, research, and intelligence.

F) Chances are this group is everyone you know.

Made up by scientists and Al Gore to make you act like idiots, into wasting less energy and making less pollution. They also try to make people believe that the world is getting warming, all because of us.
Global warming is for greeen freaks who think they can save the world.

We now know that this phenomonon has naturally occured many times before by simply looking at patterns in volcanic and solar activity over a period of several million years. Besides, planet Earth is simply too complicated to measure with today's scientific methods, because they don't take into account factors like cloud cover, recent solar/volcanic activity, temperature variations between urban and rural areas, and carbon dioxide absorption by plants.
If everyone decided to stop polluting in an effort to stop global warming, it still wouldn't make much of a difference if a volcano suddenly erupts or the sun releases a plume of energy into space.

A phenomenon involving an increase in the average temperature of earth. It should be noted that nearly all of global warming is a natural occurrence; The Great Lakes were formed by it not 10,000 years ago. In modern times, liberal media says that if we don't buy "green", more expensive materials and appliances, everyone on Earth will die by 2025. This is because of a powerful, rich man who actually pollutes more than 90% of America (Al Gore) lost a political race to a person everyone thinks is an idiot and still wanted time in the spotlight. If you had to know just one thing in about it, know this; there is as much scientific evidence proving it does not exist or it is a natural occurrence as there is saying that humans cause it.
CNBC News Guy: NEWS FLASH! Scientists say that we will all day by 2025 unless you ONLY use clean light-bulbs and hybrid vehicles due to global warming.

Smart Person: I actually will only watch my pollution because smog is a nuisance. The industrial revolution involved way more pollution than we make now and no increase in temperature was noted than.
