Well, humans are pumping 36.7 billion metric tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere annually. CO2 is a powerful green house gas so are we really contributing to global warming? Or maybe just causing it outright?

Whether Global warming is happening or not The outcome of taking it seriously is a cleaner/greener Earth, the result of doing nothing thinking it all to be a hoax results in the ever increasing use of fossil fuels and whatever climactic consequences that go with it.
I think erring on the side of caution would be the logical course of action..

However, I do believe the climate will change one way or the other and rather than debate it to death, I think we'd do a lot better to shut up and just prepare for it. I read somewhere that the Little Ice Age in Europe was in full swing after only ten years, so we might not have a lot time to prepare when climate change is already here if we keep stalling. One thing I read is that when a major climate change in imminent, the weather stutters. It will go from one extreme to the other, from very hot to very cold for a while. Maybe that's what's happening now. Anyway, that's just what I think.

Yeah, but there must be credible numbers to prove that. Winters a typically cold and summers get hot at times.

That was a cold winter, and that was a hot summer, must be global warming....
That does not work, need credible numbers for analysis....

I picked up a couple books on weather and found that. For the record, I really check out the books before I put any stock in them. There are a lot of nitwits out there writing books on viruses, weather, ghosts and what have you that are totally off the wall. After I've read a dozen or so books on a subject, I can check what a new author is saying against what I know and if he is in line with what other experts are saying and then introduces a new fact, I tend to believe it more. But I always, always have to keep an open mind, because the books I read in the library are usually a couple years behind current knowledge and things change so fast.

People who believe in climate change do not understand how information technology advances and the impact it will have.

Nowhere in the geologic record is there a time where the rate of warming has been what we have seen in the last 150 years. That rate of increase in global temperatures coincides with the rate of increase in human industrial emissions. You cannot pump billions of tons of ghgs each year into the atmosphere and not have an effect.

Is this based off of a study or are you just making stuff up?
