I gladly accept this debate, but tread carefully in how you define 'human activity'.

Human activity is the strongest factor on modern day global warming.
Humans have been burning fossil fuels like there is no tomorrow so the increase in greenhouse gases being emitted is down to us. The more the greenhouse gases that are emitted the weaker the ozone layer becomes, as a result the the ice caps melt and the sea level rises.
Since 1992 the rate at which Earth's temperature increases, has risen drastically. The reason why is that the population has risen drastically, as the population increases, the more fossil fuels are being used although renewable resources are being used. The more we use the fossil fuels, the more the temperature increases. Emissions of Carbon dioxide rose by 80% between 1970 and 2004.

Upon further examination and forfeiture of 2 rounds, I have realized there is no valid argument I can make against the motion that 'human activity is the strongest factor on global warming'. But, and I know this is a little unorthodox to do so in the comments, global warming is NOT the biggest concern we are facing today. It should be, but until we find a more cost-effective, mass producing, and environment 'friendly' sustainable alternative, we will continue to burn fossil fuels.

P.S. How come everyone is so eager to debate global warming, but not one, NOT ONE, is willing to take any political, physical discourse to changing our planet? i.e there are always 100 debaters with statistics and data showing who caused global warming, not fracking one has planted a tree or made their house 'sustainable' with solar or wind power.
