The human effect on global warming is significant.

BishMasterJr

I'm not sure how well I worded the debate resolution, so I will explain further. This is a scientific debate about whether humans are driving global warming and whether it is a problem. And so as not to cause any confusion, I hereby discredit Al Gore. Any arguments that cite Al Gore as a source should be ignored. Definitions Human effect: Effect caused by unnatural human actions; this includes sources such as factories and power plants but excludes sources such as natural respiration. Glo...

Global Warming Exists

For my opening statement/introduction, I will continue by defining the main topic, global warming. "Global Warming": Is the dramatic increase in global temperature in both the air and ocean. Global warming is caused by the excessive release of co2 (carbon dioxide) into the air. These released amounts of carbon dioxide gather in the ozone layer, which is supposed to protect the world from the sun's dangerous ultra violent rays. When the co2 is in the ozone layer, instead of defending the w...

The global warming hockey stick is bad science

RoyLatham
InfraRedEd

The global warming hockey stick is a graph of global temperature over time. It was produced by a scientist named Mann, who first published it in a scientific journal in the mid-nineties. He modified and included it in the 2000 report of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It is called a hockey stick because it shows very little variation of climate for the past thousand years until the 20th century, when temperatures soared. That makes the graph look like a hockey stick on its side...

Anthropogenic Global Warming

Anthropogenic Global Warming is enough of a threat to take action against it. I am not certain if it is real; neither side it. But, what I do know is that if we do not take action against it as soon as possible, and it turns out to be real; we will face irreversible side-effects. I will now explain my basic and SIMPLIFIED arguments. I will expand on them as the debate advances. Green House Gases control the global temperatures. This is what keeps us stable; unlike how it is on the moon. We...

Global Warming is a greater threat to life than Nuclear War

Derek.Gunn
PublicForumG-d

Nuclear War may never happen. Global Warming is already happening. Nuclear missiles would primarily impact very specific military targets and concentrated industrial centres. Global warming affects the entire planet. Nagasaki and Hiroshima recovered quickly, vegetation blossoming - even around the epicentres - within months.(1) It took us over 100 years to add greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere and oceans to cause the change we are now seeing. It will a long time to reduce our emission...

Global warming in not a ridiculous theory

Derek.Gunn
wheelhouse3

There is a large amount of evidence to suggest that global warming not just a ridiculous theory. Certainly there are a good many people who choose not to believe it because of their politics, because it's not in their economic interest to do so, or because they'd rather not have to change anything. Unfortunately, nature doesn't care about our petty affairs. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to show that global warming is a ridiculous theory, perhaps just a figment of someone...

Global warming is NOT a phenomenon that is happening right now.

Thank you Ching-Kit for being my friend, Thank you for debating and telling me about debate.org, Thank you for teaching me good strategies. Now prepare yourself. Global warming is an inaccurate theory. As a part of my evidence I will present to you a situation. In the 1970's, many news groups and organizations that studied the weather had a strong belief that we were going to, soon, go through another ice-age. Thirty years later: here we are. Earth has always gone through fluxua...

Man-Made Global Warming Is A Hoax

Phil
qtpi2008

Global warming is turning into the biggest hoax in the last 100 years. It is the child of anti-american thinkers who, given the chance, will use it to harm the US' economy and strength in the world. Liberal politicians are pushing global warming as a means of control. If enough people believe in global warming, then the government will have greater control over what we drive, eat, and even how we live our lives. Let's not forget they'll be able to tax us into oblivion because we're "destroyin...

"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...
