So, you don't think Global Warming is true? Guess I'm going to have to get the facts out.

BOP is shared.

Firstly I thank my opponent for instigating this debate, I am very much looking forward to it. Next, because my opponent has not provided definitions, structure of the debate, or a specific topic, I will. If my opponent has any opposition, they may say so and give a valid explanation. This explanation may be open to debate in the comments, and later rounds will not be posted until both parties come to an agreement.
Topic: Is Global Warming Happening?
Definitions: Is: third person singular present of be.
Global: of or relating to the whole world; worldwide.
Warming: make or become warm.
Happening: an event or occurrence.

Structure: Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Argument/s ONLY
Round 3: Rebuttals ONLY
Round 4: Defense of Case ONLY
Round 5: Rebuttal of Defense and Conclusion. Con will not be allowed to add additional defense in this round.
I wish Pro best of luck and await for their arguments.

My opponent has chosen to forfeit the round, so I will go ahead and post my arguments. If my opponent returns they may go ahead and provide their arguments and rebuttals in the next round.


I have only one argument so I will make this short and sweet:


No Global Warming for the Past 18 Years 6 Months:


(for some reason I can not put a picture on here, so here is a URL for it https://www.google.com...)


This is a graph that shows that lack in global warming from about December of 1996-nowish. (1) In fact the graph shows that if the trend stays as is, then we will decrease by 0.01 degree C over the course of a century.



My BoP has been fulfilled because I have shown that the Earth is not currently in a warming phase.



I realize this is kind of weak, but I will expand on this point if my opponent decides to participate. Also this is not a debate about the cause of Global Warming, so there is not as much more to talk about.

Extend my one contention to this round and all other rounds. I probably will not be able to post on this debate again.

Sorry for the forfeits but I've been very sick these past couple days. I won't be able to debate for at least another week.

I am not in a great position to debate right now, so I will accept when I can. It may be a few days, and thanks for the challenge!
