We need to do more to stop global warming. Global warming is happening and human activity is the main cause for global warming. Although, general consensus is the acceptance of existence of global warming, only limited amount of efforts have been done to prevent further catastrophe....

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...

Global Warming (caused by man) is a Complete and Utter Hoax

Solarman1969
emmccarty

This is a no brainer Al Gore and many others are pushing this latest scare tactic to force and agenda - this agenda is to curtail fossil fuel use and encourage renewables Now, I am in the solar business, so these fools who buy this garbage are good for business, no doubt However, the "science" behind the theory that CO2 is a main player in global climate is LAUGHABLE And I am going to make some unusual points that you havent heard the earth is getting a little bit warmer...

Note to Voters: Take not your own beliefs when voting, vote based on merit of the arguments. Also this is copy-pasted from another debate I was in: http://www.debate.org/debates/Resolved-That-Global-Warming-is-a-manmade-problem./1/ From my opponent-to-be's comments in that debate, he looks to be good competition. I hope for a good debate, and I thank him in advance. Okay, to set the parameters of this debate, my opponent must prove with a preponderance of evidence that men did indeed cause g...

Mankind Is the Main Cause of Global Warming

tejretics
StonedDragon69

PrefaceI am and have been a rather staunch supporter of the position that global warming is primarily anthropogenic. The question of the existence of man-made global warming is particularly serious in today's time, and is a highly controversial topic that I have, unfortunately, only debated once. Since I'm relatively free, with no debates going on, I think I shall go on with this debate. You must have completed 1 debate or more in order to...

"Global Warming" is a hoax

ReaganConservative
sethgecko13

"Global Warming" is one of the biggest scams in history. To go to the extreme of saying our planet is "melting" and man is the main cause, is utter foolishness and complete ignorance. I feel bad for anyone who takes Al Gore seriously. According to Accu-Weather, the world's leading commercial forecaster, global air temperatures, as measured by land-based weather stations, show an increase of about 0.45 degrees Celsius over the past century, yet CO2 output continued to rise at an extremely fast pa...

One should work against global warming and avoid extinction from it, even if it is non-anthropogenic

briski
CiRrK

First, I would like to make sure that anyone who might accept this debate realizes that an underlying premise of this topic is that global warming exists and will cause human extinction if left unaltered. You have to subscribe to some very close form of this premise if you want to debate. You can define what your version/interpretation of this premise is in the next post. Therefore use the next post for this task as well as acceptance of the debate, and then immediately begin disc...
