Man made global warming is a myth.

MassDebator255
Contra

I would like to invite someone to prove how man is at the cause of global warming. I agree that global warming exists, but not that it is a result of mans actions here on earth. I believe that global warming is a part of a natural cycle of cooling and warming that the earth constantly goes through.. I'm not very interested in links, though you can use them. Anyone can show a link and a counter link. The only time I recommend links is when you are including something that you think is a fact such...

Anthropogenic Global Warming Is Real

TheAtheistAllegiance
Silver_Falcon

First off, I want to thank Con for offering to take up this debate. This resolution is based on a discussion that originated in the comment section of another debate: http://www.debate.org/debate/13812/ == Definitions == Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW): Global Warming influenced by human activities. Real: Being or occurring in fact or actuality. == Rules == Pro and Con will both refrain from attacking the sources of scientific information in order to keep this debate focused...

Global Warming is Chiefly caused by Natural Phenomenon and NOT Humans

Prox
gizmo1650

I'll start this off with a background of the issue. *** Background: Some disagree on the degree to which global warming might also be caused simply by natural changes in the earth's climate. Some claim that humans are the chief cause of the warming that has occurred over roughly the past century, while others claim that our role has been relatively insignificant as compared to natural forces. Therefore, the debate roughly defined here centers on the question of whether human are the "c...

The human effect on global warming is significant.

MTGandP
BishMasterJr

I'm not sure how well I worded the debate resolution, so I will explain further. This is a scientific debate about whether humans are driving global warming and whether it is a problem. And so as not to cause any confusion, I hereby discredit Al Gore. Any arguments that cite Al Gore as a source should be ignored. Definitions Human effect: Effect caused by unnatural human actions; this includes sources such as factories and power plants but excludes sources such as natural respiration. Glo...

Global Warming Exists

heyitsjay
InfraRedEd

For my opening statement/introduction, I will continue by defining the main topic, global warming. "Global Warming": Is the dramatic increase in global temperature in both the air and ocean. Global warming is caused by the excessive release of co2 (carbon dioxide) into the air. These released amounts of carbon dioxide gather in the ozone layer, which is supposed to protect the world from the sun's dangerous ultra violent rays. When the co2 is in the ozone layer, instead of defending the w...

The global warming hockey stick is bad science

RoyLatham
InfraRedEd

The global warming hockey stick is a graph of global temperature over time. It was produced by a scientist named Mann, who first published it in a scientific journal in the mid-nineties. He modified and included it in the 2000 report of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It is called a hockey stick because it shows very little variation of climate for the past thousand years until the 20th century, when temperatures soared. That makes the graph look like a hockey stick on its side...

Anthropogenic Global Warming

Bricheze
RNG

Anthropogenic Global Warming is enough of a threat to take action against it. I am not certain if it is real; neither side it. But, what I do know is that if we do not take action against it as soon as possible, and it turns out to be real; we will face irreversible side-effects. I will now explain my basic and SIMPLIFIED arguments. I will expand on them as the debate advances. Green House Gases control the global temperatures. This is what keeps us stable; unlike how it is on the moon. We...
