Just a quick poll to see a snapshot of what this forum thinks of man-made climate change. Real or no?

This is a private poll.

We are having climate change, same as happened over the past millions of years. Humans are having minimal impact.

Man burning releasing billions of tons of fossil fuels that have been stored for millions of years cant change the atmosphere, where do you suppose the CO2 atmospheric increase originates.

Humans have to be having some impact. In the days of the cavemen, the only warming was from their fires to cook and keep warm. Look at all that we have now. Every year we break new records for heat worldwide. You can google the statistics but I was reading them yesterday. Just this July broke all records for Europe. And my state broke all records of the month of July. Some of it could just be natural warming but with all that we've got going on, it's a whole lot more than it ever was before and that's a contributing factor.

Anyone who denies that statement has no idea what they are talking about. How anyone could not see how we have polluted and poisoned this planet is beyond me.

If Man is affecting climate, what percentage is man made, and what percentage is Naturally occurring? What will the taxes on fossil fuels, carbon, and other items do to curtail the man made portion of climate change if there is one? If the Naturally Occurring Climate change increases as it has always done, will that negate anything man does to combat it?

This poll is a perfect example of two emotionally-charged and ideologically-driven extremes seeking to oversimplify and emtionalize a polarizing issue for purposes of advancing their own agenda; a pox on both their houses!

The anti-environmental conservatives should soften their strident insistence that continuance of dependence upon expanded use of fossil fuels will have no long-term effect.

But in return, the far-Left-leaning crowd needs to abandon their little-girl-like conviction that only a huge new expansion of a bureaucracy with its own purposes can "save the planet" -- and that the choice has to be made -- and imposed on all of us -- within the twelve (or whatever number of) years they alone deem to be crucial.
