    See!!!!!!!! Looks like the science behind global warming is not as settled as Gore would have us believe....... Glad to see the community taking a stand for sanity!

    Man made global warming is about as real as the need to put the Polar Bear on the endangered list.

    There is intense global warming in the close proximity of activists such as Al Gore. It's from all the hot air they blow out.

    Global Warming
    http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/news/science/topics/globalwarming/index.html

    On Feb. 2, 2007, the United Nations scientific panel studying climate change declared that the evidence of a warming trend is "unequivocal," and that human activity has "very likely" been the driving force in that change over the last 50 years. The last report by the group, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, in 2001, had found that humanity had "likely" played a role.

    The addition of that single word "very" did more than reflect mounting scientific evidence that the release of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases from smokestacks, tailpipes and burning forests has played a central role in raising the average surface temperature of the earth by more than 1 degree Fahrenheit since 1900. It also added new momentum to a debate that now seems centered less over whether humans are warming the planet, but instead over what to do about it. In recent months, business groups have banded together to make unprecedented calls for federal regulation of greenhouse gases. The subject had a red-carpet moment when former Vice President Al Gore's documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," was awarded an Oscar; and the Supreme Court made its first global warming-related decision, ruling 5 to 4 that the Environmental Protection Agency had not justified its position that it was not authorized to regulate carbon dioxide.

    The greenhouse effect has been part of the earth's workings since its earliest days. Gases like carbon dioxide and methane allow sunlight to reach the earth, but prevent some of the resulting heat from radiating back out into space. Without the greenhouse effect, the planet would never have warmed enough to allow life to form. But as ever larger amounts of carbon dioxide have been released along with the development of industrial

    Global Warming 101
    http://www.ucsusa.org/global_warming/global_warming_101/

    Global warming is well underway and will have wide-ranging consequences for our health and well-being. The primary cause of global warming is from human activity, most significantly burning of fossil fuels to drive cars, generate electricity, and operate our homes and businesses. Clearing tropical forests contributes to about 20 percent of global warming emissions.

    When too much global warming pollution is released into the air, it acts like a blanket, trapping heat in our atmosphere and altering weather patterns globally and here in the U.S. We need to deeply reduce the heat-trapping emissions causing this effect if we are to address global warming

    By choosing to invest in clean and efficient energy technologies, industries, and approaches, we can greatly reduce the consequences of our changing climate. We have ample technology and ingenuity to reduce the threat of global warming today. By ramping up our use of renewable energy and energy efficiency, and increasing the efficiency of the cars we drive, we can take essential steps toward reducing our global warming pollution, and in the process transform our energy system to one that is cleaner and less dependent on oil and other fossil fuels.

    For more that 20 years, UCS has worked together with leading climate experts from the scientific community to educate U.S. decision makers and the public about climate change and implement practical solutions at the federal, regional and state level. Our experts include climate scientists and economists, as well as technical experts in the energy and transportation sectors. We also work on international solutions to climate change, with particular emphasis on preserving tropical forests.

    Not all scientists agree with the idea of man-made global warming:

    It is the height or human arrogance to think that we can control the climatological cycles on the planet.

    I repeat my urgent advice to those who think we can: "Don't just do something, stand there!"

    JustChristian...your quote-ees have an agenda.

    They also desire America to be a third-rate power.

    So...one, they are not believeable; two, they do not have our best interest at heart.

    Nice try, though.

    It is the height of human foolishness to think the our Creator God designed the universe in such a way that all the complex laws of physics work, and that He placed our planet in just the right position so that we are not too close to the sun (so we don't burn up) and yet not too far from the sun (so we don't freeze). However, this great intelligent designer and creator God made us in such a way that when we exhale CO2 we contribute to the "killing" of the planet earth. Oh wait, most people who believe the lie of man-made global warming don't believe in a creator God. However, professing Christians ought to know better.

    Remember the evidence from the “President-elect Obama Marxist?” thread. The man-made global warming hoax is a tool of the communists who want to defeat America and Capitalism.

    i AGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT. i WOULD ALSO PLACE MYSELF IN THE YET TO BE CONVINCED CATEGORY. i WOULD NOT, HOWEVER, SUPPORT THOSE WHO CATEGORICALLY SAY GLOBAL WARMING IS A MYTH. yOU KNOW SOME PEOPLE INSIST THAT WE DIDN'T REALLY LAND ON THE MOON. iT WAS ALL A HOAX.

    The funny thing is that each time the man-made global warming guys come out with their evidence that is supposed to drive the final nail in the doubters coffin they end up being debunked or discredited in some way. The latest was when the NASA guys came out the their report that claimed that October 2008 was the hottest on record. Then we find out that they somehow "mistakenly" plugged the data for September into their October model and published their report. My middle school kids would not make such a "mistake" in their home made Science Fair projects! Give me break...:BangHead:

    What number of International Scientists are there?

    650/x)*100 = percentage of International Scientists signing up for no-Global Warming
    Two logical problems here:

    1. Appeal to Authority

    2. This is no majority

    650 is 50% of 1300. So if there are more than 1299 international Scientists, then 650 is not even a majority of international Scientists. l I checked Google & Ask for the number of International Scientists, no answer. But I'd suspect that it is quite a bit more than 1300 International Scientists.
