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.
Dumb person watching news: Wow i gotta be safe about this and protect my environment.
2: A subsection of the Church of Environmentalism called "The Church of Anthropomorphic Climate Change". Like most religions, there's guilt (My car only gets 20 mpg!), sin (using gasoline), penance (being "carbon-neutral"- hell, you can even pay off your conscience in the form of "Carbon-credits" just like in the ol' Catholic Church days!), and even heretics (any and all dissenting scientists are crushed by the mighty PR boot- some even being compared to holocaust deniers simply because they disagree with the science!)
3: A hypothesis made by people who either are jealous of the developed world or feel guilty about living in it that makes an excuse to punish progress and capitalism; wealth redistribution under the guise of environmentalism
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 (l...
Their agenda includes putting caps on CO2 production for first world countries like Canada, England, and the US, while allowing China, India and Russia to emit as much of the 'evil' co2 gas as they feel like.
It also looks like a push by the nuclear energy industry to build more 'non-polluting' nuclear energy plants, even though nuclear energy is not clean, not safe, and hugely expensive, and produces horribly toxic material that can be used by terrorists to build weapons, and also will last for millions of years.
All opposer's to global warming are made to look like heretics. It is sad that most people will fall right in line with an obvious attempt to control a mass population with propaganda like "an inconvenient truth" even though more and more evidence is pointing to our present day warming as a natural effect of increased solar output. Proof of this is the fact that mars has exhibited the same level of warming and polar melting as earth has, even though there is no direct link between our planet and Mars except for solar radiation hitting each planet.
(Said during blizzard or heavy snowfall, preferably in March or April) Hey, how about that global warming, eh?!
