Man made global climate change or not: Which scientists are correct?
We're either going to waste an obscene amount of money or we're going to ignore a global catastrophe. There doesn't seem to be any in-between. How do we reach a consensus?

This guy who asked this question last week does not realize that this week Colorado is setting record high temperatures.

Just take a look at Mt. Kilimanjaro. There used to be snow up there. Look at Antarctica. A lot of melting. That is causing a slow rise in the oceans and a decrease in salinity. These things are measurable. Will they make a difference? As the people who live in Miami what will happen if the Atlantic keeps rising.

When environmentalists can stop the seasons from changing I may believe in man made global warming. Until then, I'll pass on trying to control the climate of the Earth.

The global warming campaign is a farce. However pollution is obviously not a good thing and we should all work to reduce it in a reasonable way. That does not mean a tax or shutting down our small manufacturers.

The Earth can take care of its self, we are stupid to believe we can change anything for better or worse.

We listen to 99% of climatologists! The scientists who are anti-Man Made reasons are the same who 10 years ago say it wasn't happening. We need to invest in Wind, Solar and Nuclear - TODAY. Jobs and a better life for our grandchildren.

The planet has been cooling since 1998. Global warming is a hoax. Sun spots have more to do with our temperature than anything we could do. This was a cool summer; maybe we are entering a new ice age (joke).
Answered By: Booth - 11/4/2009
The alleged science of global warming has never seemed to me to hold much water. To many assumptions based on incomplete data. Too much contradictory data left out and too many political figures who stand to make fortunes if they get enough people to blindly follow them. There is a very good reason that more than 30,... More

Ignore the climate crap and just give us clean air and water. What they are doing is trying to get more money from the people. Until China,India and Mexico do something to stop there emissions there is nothing anyone can do to change what we have now. Peace

DEKE666: You my friend are grossly misinformed. Antarctica is experiencing some of the coldest weather in centuries. It's the North Pole that's experiencing a thaw while the South Pole freezes solid. It all has to do with polar wobble and our orbit around the sun. The side facing towards the sun gets more solar... More

Answered By: Paul Grass - 11/4/2009
There is some foundation in what you draw your conjecture but the factor omitted is that the worst polluters are in China and India. Neither of which will participate nor sign into an international treaty to put controls on it. All the fortune and time we invest will still come up for naught considering the far... More
