Is the climate changing? -Yes, it always has and always will.

Is the climate warming?-Yes. On a macro scale we are still coming out of an ice age-a cyclic phenomenon.

Is the burning of fossil fuels a contributing factor? -Perhaps.

How much of a contributing factor is the burning of fossil fuels?-That is the real question-no one knows exactly.

Will destroying the US economy, putting millions out of work, perhaps leading to a global depression, do anything to reverse the impact of climate change? Not likely

Will the loudest proponents of "AGW" change their lifestyles, give up private jets, get rid of their luxury cars, live in a "tiny home" and sink their yachts to contribute to reversing the process?-get serious

Are some of the loudest proponents of "AGW" enriching themselves by promoting AGW?-absolutely. Look at Algore and his "carbon exchange" scheme-and the profits from fiction movies.

Even after more than 40 years of whining and caterwauling since the first Earth Day, and trying as hard as they can all that time, nobody has ever produced any proof that man's activities have any effect on the climate changes we are seeing. Just studies that refer to more studies that lead to even more studies. And not a bit of proof in any of them.

Still doesn't mean the U S. can work towards being the most environmentally friendly Nation in the World and be an example for other Countries.

I remember that as as child. The Liberal Teachers would tell us that we would be in an ice age by now. Now they are all saying that we will all be in an oven. Thank dog they came up with the term "Climate change" as it can't be disproved

Toyman, don't be so practical. You know the Left needs to make all of their goals so urgent that we will blindly in trust them to fix all of our problems, AOC, abd her Jihadi Warriors will fix all the problems

I'm sorry but you worded your poll incorrectly and you didn't include enough options to allow for more accurate results, so I won't vote in your poll and add more skewing to already skewed results.

If you had included the option that humans have contributed, not caused, but contributed to and all share some responsibility for this climate change and the highly unusual speed in which it's happening this time, then I would have voted for that.

But saying that humans have directly caused climate change is just nonsense, it isn't even possible. And saying that humans have nothing to do with climate change at all and it's normal the way it is happening this time is just as much nonsense. I think everybody knows that, even the deniers who won't admit it publically know in their hearts that humans have something to do with it this time round but they don't want to accept any personal responsibility for their own contributions to it.

I could post 1,000 links stating that global warming is real, would that change your mind? No.
So I’ll say this instead which I have before.

I lived in North Carolina has a kid in the winters they were much harsher and colder then they are now not to mention more snow then we get here now. But none of that matters to you because truthfully you don’t care either way.

so, the climate change is real (and expected). and of course, human activity has some effect.

that's what was asked. Probably not as intended, but it's what was asked.
