Global Warming

Pmaynard94
SBC

Global warming is not always bad. Don't get me wrong, global warming may present a huge change in climate and that may be the biggest detriment to the human race, but global warming does present an upside, more food, more tropical areas, more hot summer days, and a decrease of deaths. The issue of global warming is serious, but it has also helped the planet more than it has harmed it....

Global warming is real

sam.roth

Research has led to an overwhelming consensus among climate scientists that climate change, a result of increased greenhouse gas concentrations, is a real, anthropogenic phenomenon being driven by fossil fuel emissions. Data from multiple sources seem to point to the same conclusion. Average temperature indicators since the Industrial Revolution as well as increasing intensity of weather patterns in recent years, and historical trends in levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have convi...

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...
