I will contend that anthropogenic global climate change exists. The contender will contend that anthropogenic global climate change is non-existent.


Structure
R1 Acceptance & definitions
R2 Arguments, don't respond to opponent's arguments yet.
R3 Rebuttals, respond directly to opponent's round two argument.
R4 Defense respond directly to opponent's three argument.


Burden of proof
Burden of proof will be shared equally. This is because I am making the affrimative claim and the instiagator, yet am arguing for what is normally accepted in the scientific community. Therefore, the burdens of proof cancel each other out resulting in neutral 50/50 burden of proof.

Further explanation of r1 setup. First round is just for acceptance and definitions if need be. Common definitions are assumed, unless otherwise stated and agreed upon.


Anthropogenic " Caused by humans" [1]


Round two each person will make their argument, but no direct responses to the other person's argument. Focus on making a convincing argument that if not for your opponent's rebuttal would sell your audience. This is the only round to make new arguments for your case.

Round three each person will respond directly to their opponent's round two argument pointing out any logical fallacies and attempt to find flaws.

Round four each person defends their round two argument against their opponent's round three argument. For example if I say that is a cherry picking fallacy as a rebuttal in round three against my opponent round two argument, my opponent would explain in round four as a defense why me calling their argument a cherry picking fallacy is incorrect.

Thank you in advance for accepting the debate.

Previous debate for reference. [0] Try to stick to the structure please, makes it much easier for voters to follow the debate. The science is settled, this is a political debate, that my opponent will most likely attempt to make look like a scientific debate.

Con

In my debate I will be trying not to persuade you that humans are totally responsible for global warming, but the major cause is from animals etc, with still little help from the humans. It would be totally biased if you wanted me to defend humans completely out of global warming for such as a fart contributes.

At the end of this debate I hope to have abolished the Anthropogenic title from your moot, and (as seen from the previous debate) from your stubborn mind.

No need for any clarifications.
Thank You and good luck!

Round two arguments.

First, the science is settled, this is a political debate that deniers try to make look like a scientific debate.




Fact: There is a 97% consensus on climate change. Climate scientists are the experts of experts in their field. A consilience of evidence, social calibration, and social diversity exist.

Myth: 31,000 scientists signed a petition so therefore there is no consensus.

Fallacy: Fake experts, as the expertise increases so does agreement.







Co2 is at the highest it has been in over 800,000 years.





Tempatures are rising.






Glaciers are overall losing mass.






Humans fingerprints show humans are extremely likely to be causing these events.






Burning of fossil fuels and the released Co2 is the main driver of climate change.



Thank you.

This should be the final link. Remind me not to make a debate with so many pictures.

Glaciers retreating. You can see the graphs in my photo album, I'm not sure what happened.

Here's the graph for ocean warming. I still don't get why all the pictures loaded and then all disappeared.

Oh you gotta be kidding me, my entire argument was graphs, and now they disappeared. Talk about technical issues.

Sorry about posting my sources in the comments, I wasn't sure if even half the graphs would show up. Call it a technical issue. That should be all the links, except for a few on skeptical science.

I got most of my pics from skepticalscience.com. Only one I didn't was the co2 graph.

I've already shown that to be wrong GrayParrot

Fact: a 97% scientific consensus exists on the realities of man-made global climate change.

Myth: There is no consensus

Fallacy: Misrepresentation, the realities of man-made climate change are so well accepted in the scientific community, having a stance on climate change would be like having a stance on the Sun or Moon existing.
