36 minutes long and a good watch, and the guy presenting it does not want any money for presenting it, and does not get any taxpayer money for making it either.

I don't believe in global warming either. the earth is just doing what the earth does.
we do not know everything, we only have data back for so far.

this could just be the cycle of the earth.

And when it's not a cycle but an anthropogentic change? You'll say, "Oops, my bad. Too late now."

If 97% of scientists said the bridge you drive over every day to work is unsafe, would you still risk it?

Are they being paid to study this bridge by the government?

If it's the Koch brother paying for it you'll know the information is faked.

Irrelevant. Even if they were paid by the government (Federal or State Engineers), would that affect the decision?

Are you crossing the bridge?

This has really been discussed to death in other forums. There is global warming, there is also global cooling. In the 1700's and 1800s we had cooling periods known as "The Little Ice Age". And of course we know that most of the world was a sheet of ice about 2 million years ago. The planet will warm...or cool, regardless of what man can do. And one single volcano eruption can cause temperature and weather cataclysm that man does not yet have the technology to replicate outside of global nuclear warfare (and then, "nuclear winters" are theoretical).
The title should read there is no such thing as MAN-MADE global warming as it's obvious we are going through a warming cycle. In ten years, or a hundred years, it may be the opposite.

I always find it interesting when I watch shows about glaciers and they say they're melting....then they say they've been doing so since the 1800s...the other day they said since the 1700s for the one they were talking about. What's up with that?
