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--...

Rules: 1. This debate will be on science: Were leaving out politics and scientific consensus. No Al Gore or Oregon Petition please. 2. Understand the mechanics of Global Warming Have a basic understanding of the science before accepting this challenge. Like I said before, quotes won't cut it here. We need good scientific arguments. 3. Prove me wrong, not my credibility Don't ignore my arguments and say 'You don't have enough evidence, therefore I don't have to respond' Whether...

Humans are the main cause of global warming

jh1234l
Ron-Paul

The CON must prove humans do not play a significant role in global warming. I recommend a experienced debater that opposes global warming to debate with me. EDIT: Per Ron-Paul's request, the resolution is changed and the voting period is now 1 month. My Starting Arguments: Yes, the Earth is warming. Since the early 20th century, Earth's mean surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 "C (1.4 "F), with about two-thirds of the increase occurring since 1980.[1] Is it caused mainly...

Global Warming Skepticism

Republican95
Cpt.Price

=== Resolution === The people of the world should be highly skeptical on the issue of human induced climate change. === Arguments ==== 1) Changes in climate have occured before. The ice age that occured some 110,000 to 10,000 years ago [1] is evidence that drastic changes in the Earth's climate is normal. Also, the fact that when the Vikings landed in an ice-free Greenland in 986 is evidence of previous warming, as Greenland is full of ice today. [2] Therefore, there is no reason to...
