The human effect on global warming is significant.

(Paraphrased from http://www.debate.org/debate/8325/) 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. Not all evidence has to be inherently scientific, but all evidence should give reasons to believe that the human effect on global warming is significant (PRO) or insignificant (CON). Definitions Human effect: Effect caused by unnatural human actions; th...

Global warming is occurring and it is the fault of humans.

A major claim among environmentalist groups lately is that man made global warming is destroying the Earth.

I will be arguing that climate change is a natural process with very little influence from humans.First round is for setting up arguments and agreeing to terms of the debate. All other rounds are for actual debate. To who...

Extensive actions must be taken to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, or the endangered species list will incessantly grow longer and longer....

Global Warming is Chiefly caused by Natural Phenomenon and NOT Humans

Prox

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...
