Did not reply because of the simple fact that the poll is and all or nothing question, how about man might have played some part in global warming. The fact is that global warming is a fact and happening, how it is occuring is open to discussion (again and again) but anyone that denies it is even happening is either being dishonest or simply ignorant of science and probably should avoid the discussion on the topic. Personally I do not care one way or the other, just so long as we finally start doing all we can to stop polluting and overusing the planet and even better try and reverse some of the damage already done to the Planet.

Why didn't you include "I believe climate change is real, but I don't know about "human causation", and I don't know whether mankind can (or should) do anything about the changes!"

Your poll shows you dont understand the nature of the actual debate.

anyone who has looked at the science understands that some portion of the rise in CO2 is human caused. that rise in CO2 has caused some warming, and that warming has impacted the climate.

The debate that rages is, is that imact to the climate catistrophic in nature? will furhter increases in CO2 cause ever escalating danger to humanity in the form of radical climatic shifts?


To answer this question, I used to believe in CAGW. Now I am skeptical of the C in CAGW.

None of the forcing (that is the really important word one has to understand when considering this topic) that the warmists has forcasted has turned out to be true.

None of the sea level rise predicted has come to pass....

I don't know, I thought the poll choices were pretty clear. I picked the first choice, that I no longer believe human caused climate change is real. Keywords here are human caused, meaning all or most climate change is derived from human activity.

When it first came out in the 90s which coincided with my late teens/early 20s I believed it. Guess ill blame it on being young.

Now? Who knows?

Money/politics pollutes science. I do like ribbing the believers though.

Since the 1970s I have always known that Anthropological Global Cooling, Anthropological Global Warming, and Anthropological Climate Change were liberal scams. Vehicles used by Marxist socialists for the sole purpose of redistributing of wealth.

But that makes no sense if you believe mankind had ANY connection.

I am more concerned with what we are doing to our own water, food, and air. Also, I think it is important to study global warming, man made or not so we can learn from it and learn how to adapt to it.
