The subject being "Global Warming is the result of Human Activity"
Also known as Man-Made Global Warming
I have fought this belief in a previous debate and it only seems fit to me to use the same opening argument.

So begins the debate, thank you Rune for the subject and thank you readers for viewing my points.

The earth is warming up... DUH!
but why is the earth warming?
my goal in this debate it to fight off the common theory that we are the couse of Global Warming.

Global warming is a corner stone issue with many news media programs,
as well as a corner stone issue for the democratic party.

I had the privilege of talking to a scientist who testified as well as 6 others in front of congress.
He says, and i quote "The largest production of Carbon Dioxide in the world isn't even close to use, its in the ocean, its plankton."

He also told me that we have very little if any effect on the worlds climate.
he says that the second largest production comes from south America in the rain forest (in which he spent 10 years in studying). He says that the trees in the rain forest store carbon dioxide for hard times when they need energy, when the hard times don't come and the tree is fully grown they let out the carbon dioxide.

My first statement is that we have little effect on our environment.

Global warming is the result of the globe warming. It takes tens of thousands of years for the planet to move from cold to warm which it has done for millions of years. To state that the globe has warmed faster than usual is complete junk science as there are no records to compare recent warming to anything. You need at least 10,000 years of accurate record keeping to even begin to predict a warming or cooling trend. Anyone who says that the glaciers are melting because of recent warming is a completely ignorant moron. The processes that starting the melting process today was set in motion thousands of years ago. Glaciares store heat and release it gradually in the way of melting. An ice cube doesn't melt the minute you take it out of the refrigerator nor due miles thick glaciers melt in a few decades of slightly warmer whether.
