I will wait for my opponent to post their argument. I accept and debate that global warming is real.

Thank you for accepting this debate. I will now prove that global warming is both false and a hoax.

Claim 1: The Earth sometimes gets extra cold.
Warrant: "It"s Too Cold To Protest Global Warming At Yale" [1].
Impact: Global Warming cannot be happening if it still gets this cold.

Claim 2: Polar vortex exists.
Warrant: " Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles." [2].
Impact: Global warming must be a hoax for these polar vortex to exist.

Claim 3: Polar vortex linked to global climate change.
Warrant: "Polar vortex visits to U.S. linked to climate change" [3].
Impact: I have now proven sufficient evidence that global climate change exists. Since global climate change and global warming are mutually exclusive. I have now dis-proven global warming.

Claim 4: Global warming is a hoax.
Warrant: People still refer to the dis-proven notion of global warming all over the internet, thus common knowledge.
Impact: Since global climate change has been proven and global warming dis-proven, I can only conclude that global warming is a hoax. Why else would people reference an obsolete term?

Thanks again for the debate.

"Is your view that global warming is true or a hoax?" The latter of the two.

I think that you mean "man-made"... the FACT of global warming can hardly be denied; you may wish to argue that we aren't causing it... but as it stands, you'll lose this debate almost by default (it's easy to provide evidence that the Earth is warming up)
