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...

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...

"Global Warming" is a hoax

"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

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...

Global warming is occurring and it is the fault of humans.

BennyW
alexzanderzang

A major claim among environmentalist groups lately is that man made global warming is destroying the Earth. My opponent must show how the Earth is in fact getting warmer and how humans are the direct cause of this warming trend. I will be arguing that climate change is a natural process with very little influence from humans.First round is for setting up arguments and agreeing to terms of the debate. All other rounds are for actual debate. To who...

We need to do more to stop Global Warming.

lannan13

To start global warming is doing more damage then you might think, it is causing more floods and droughts, which besides the injuries and deaths leads to the government paying for repairs and taking money away from more important matter such as our governments dept. To stop global warming we need to lower our greenhouse gas emissions by 80% and to do this we need to have new laws and restrictions along with just day to day tasks to help stop it. While we might not be able to lower it by th...

The planet is warming. There is too much scientific evidence to suggest otherwise. People who refuse to accept this are not listening to the facts, and are just being plainly ignorant....
