Scientists studying the changing nature of the Earth's climate say they have completed one crucial task - proving beyond a doubt that global warming is real. Full Story

Of course they did. Their funding depends on it. The oceans and planet have actually cooled over the past twenty years. But they choose to ignore that fact.

China and India just began spewing greenhouse gases. We've been doing it in North America and Europe for more than a century, so the Chinese and Indians rightly expect us to take the lead in cleaning up the mess; once we do, they will follow.
Overall, it'll cost about 1% of global GDP to solve this, and it'll have the happy effect of building our own energy independence as well. Not a heavy cost at all--IF we start soon.

Climate Change is real and is caused by natural fluctuations in the Earth's environment. Global Warming, in the Al Gore sense, is an increase in the Earth's over-all temperature which is most probably influenced by human activity. However, the degree of influence, no pun intended, is not completely clear.
"Most probably influenced by human activity."

A guess is also the best the anthropogenic global warming advocates can come up with...based on unprovable computer modeling that conveniently changes as multiple errors are pointed out.

The cause of planetary warming or cooling is not known (has not been scientifically proven). Stating that human activity is the sole cause is incredibly unscientific.

Ironic, isn't it?

However, previous polar scientific research has revealed the fact that our planet's polar ice caps have melted and refrozen many times during the life of our planet.

What we have going on now is a partnership between con artists, nation states seeking economic advantages, businesses lobbies seeking riches, political parties seeking political power, and the scientific community seeking funding by supporting research that has wealthy and politically influential commerical and political backers, each "player" in this drama looking to position themselves to benefit from the billions and billions of tax dollars planned to be exploited to "solve" the changes in temperature.

Yawn - just one more scam being promoted by com men to enrich themselves - and by political operatives to position themselves for gaining greater political power.

This having been said, it would be a wise thing to reduce greenhouse gases - maybe we should stop the rapid over development that is removing so many trees that can convert CO2 into Oxygen? Odd, you just don’t hear too much support for that, do you? That’s because too many wealthy individuals make their money from the development of green spaces. Too many governments make their money from taxing “growth”. Developers are like plagues of locus – they consume the trees and other green spaces without regard to the adverse impact to the ability of the green foliage they destroy to keep the planets supply of Oxygen in balance with the planets’ supply of CO2.

Nuclear power is one way to avoid burning fossils fuels for heat and vehicular fuel. The nuclear power can create electricity to power vehicles. Yet the same “environmentalists” that denounce the burning of fossil fuels rally to prevent the use of nuclear power.

Electricity generated by wind farms is blocked by “Environmentalists” as well. Can’t have those pesky and unsightly power lines now can we? The poor birds might fly into the blades of wind turbines, right?

The politicians are not going to agree on anything until it is too late. There are too many players and too many vested interested in maintaining the status quo. The best solution to me seems to be to put a mirror in space to block some of the heat.

Most of these climate specialists are weather people who aren't sure if is raining or a cow is flying over. They still have not explained sunspots, volcanic eruptions, and the fact that weather is cyclical. But then we would not like to bore people with the facts and have an authority like al (boo hoo) gore lose his chance at stardom(what a jerk).

No one has ever said that the climate is a constant.

The issue is the cause of the change, be it natural or man made.

Yes, because no one else anywhere in the world has ever used oil for any reason ever.

It's a shame the pot resin clogging up the arteries in your brain can't be collected and refined into some form of biofuel, putz.

It amazes me... The people on here that claim there is no human climate change and spew insults at everyone else... These are the first people that will whine to their local officials and file lawsuits if a factory or power plant tries to open anywhere near their house. It is naive to think that factories and power plants pouring tons of smoke and chemicals into the air will not have an impact on people's health and the environment.

What amazes me is people like you who have no clue what they are talking about trying to tell the rest of us what to think. I tend to read and learn from real scientist who know what is going on. http://epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm...

The money in grants right now is to study "global warming", so the research is tainted and twisted to result in "more grant money for further research". Others have set up "carbon credit trading companies and stand to make tens of millions if they can get laws restricting CO2.(Gore).

That is why Al Gore changed his tune from "global warming" to "climate change".

Of course the climate is changing. It is in a constant state of flux. Global warming occurs just as global cooling occurs. There have been "ice ages" in the past, so it only makes sense that there will also be "hot ages". Now prove without a doubt that man has anything to do with it.

SPOT ON!! There has been NO conclusive proof that man has contributed anything to global warming. Follow the money trail and see who is benefitting from this BS science the most, and you will see the whole reason behind this junk.(Al Gore call your office.)
