Is global climate change a theory? What is the scientific evidence for global warming?
tumeric

Con

FACT: Carbon Dioxide and Methane are bi-products of burning fossil fuels.
FACT: These gasses trap heat energy -- meaning they get to a higher temperature before radiating energy out.
FACT: The proportion of these gasses is increasing on Earth because of fossil fuel use.

Please explain how these 3 basic facts of physics do not lead to warming.

This is just the theoretical part of this issue. After you've explained the physical mechanism offsetting the warming that must be happening, I'll ask you to explain how temperature measurements demonstrating higher temperatures do not indicate warming as well.
