Scientists have no proof that humans are responsible for a significant amount of global warming.

HandsOff
TheRaven

There, I said it. And it's true. Even scientists who "believe" humans are largely repsonsible for recent temperature changes will admit they do not have definitive proof. The PR campaign of the left claiming scientists "have reached" a consensus implies the research is finally complete. However, a "consensus" is only 51 percent, and no one is stopping to consider that legitimate science is a product of fact and not popularity or speculation in the absence of conclusive evidence. The liberals and...

Anthropogenic, catastrophic, carbon dioxide based global warming is a hoax

JrRepublican
Chub123

My opponent will have to prove that global warming is existent, anthropogenic, carbon-caused, and catastrophic. I will attempt to debunk the claims of alarmists. My first argument states that the earth is not warming significantly. From J. Hansen's first testimony in 1988 to 2007, the earth has cooled by approximately .5 degrees. This is from a the UAH MSU monthly global temperatures. The University of Illinois Polar Research Group found that the Antarctic sea ice reached record levels in 2007--...
