Why are there so many differing opinions on Global Warming?

I've had teachers tell me it's not man made, some have even said that global warming doesn't even exist, yet others are adamant about it being man made and occurring at an alarming rate. Is the truth somewhere in the middle? I seem to be getting a lot of different responses, I guess most specifically I am looking for an answer as to why there are so many opinions. I personally am not looking to be swayed one way or another.

Over 97% of climate scientists accept that it’s real and there isn’t a single scientific organisation on the planet, whether it’s of national or international standing, that disputes that it’s real...

The truth is man made effects upon the human body is a proven fact. Global Warming, now called climate change, has been happening since the last ice age. If anything we do not have any proof that climate conditions on earth have ever been exactly the same over long periods of time. We can see directly the shifts in... More

global warming is obviously caused by man's activities. so, global warming do exist but not really man made too. because what we are doing is only speeding global warming that'll happen anyway if humans don't exist.

The under line two opinions are these: 1. It is real - what most of the world believes 2. It is not real - what government tell us to stop us from panicking or so they don't have to spend money.

Some people are afraid of change. They think that living without fossil fuels will mean going back to living in caves. The truth is that new energy sources will be as much better than hydrocarbon fuels as natural gas and electricity is better than shovelling coal. They seem to think that the hydrocarbon age is the best... More

Well, the global temperature as recorded by satellites has gone down since 1998 despite an increase of man made CO2 into the atmosphere. This flies in the face of the fear mongering that alarmists are trying to spread.

There are lots of differing SCIENTIFIC opinions on minor details of global warming, but not about whether or not it exists or is man made (on which TOP scientists agree).
