The Earth is currently going through a global warming phase.

Definitions. "Global warming phase" – a time period of decent length (compared to a human lifespan) where the average global temperature increases. Over the course of this phase, average temperatures may fluctuate up and down, but the statistical trend is upward (example seen here [1]). In order to qualify, one must be able to extrapolate from the data that the average temperature will continue to increase over the next several decades (pending no action taken to prevent the current trend). S...

Global Warming is Largely Man-Made

Resolution: Global Warming is Largely Man-Made The definitions are obvious, and playing with semantics will result in a loss. Rules 1. BoP is split. 2. No semantics or trolling. 3. Follow the format. 4. Only sources may be posted externally. Any violation of the rules should result in a loss. Format R1: Acceptance R2: Constructive Case R3: Rebuttals R4: Rebuttals and Conclusion *Edit* This debate was going to be for the beginners tourney, but we have changed topic. But I'd...

Global Warming: Climate Change

We should take action on climate change now because it is predicted that the climate will increase by 4-6 degrees by 2100. Right now the climate is increased by 1 degree Celsius warmer since 1880. In the past extreme heat and drought has caused thousands of deaths. For example in Chicago 1995, 795 people died in a heat wave and in Europe 2003, 30,000 people died from another heat wave. In Northwest China desertification of farming lands causes a loss of 1000 miles annually. The Amazon forests pl...

Anthropogenic Global Warming

TheDebater_101

PrefaceThis is a truly relevant issue, and a topic of major debate between liberals and conservatives. There is heated disagreement on the issue between the Democratic Party and Republican Party, and climate skeptics and modelers debate this over multiple studies based on empirical research. Due to this, I have decided to discuss this issue that is extemely relevant today. I hope for a great discourse. TheDebater_101 has asked...

Global Warming is Happening!

Global Warming is happening! Over the last decades, Earth scientists around the world have evaluated pools of atmospheric, geographic, and oceanic data to reach the same conclusion: the Earth's surface is getting warmer. Besides registering a constant increase in the Earth's average surface temperature decade after decade, scientists also show that the world's sea levels are rising 3.16 mm per year (and have risen a total of 8 inches over the last...
