    It is actually false, it is called climate change and means that the temperature varies to a higher degree

    It snows in Alabama sometimes, not often, but still, so I'm not convinced anymore.

    It's not an instant on/off switch. It happens over time.

    the climate is changing, but the arguement is to what extent is our activity contributing to the change. There is tons of literature out there to support both sides, but nothing is certain.

    Really all the data points to it? You mean the data fudged by those English scientist that for totally unrelated reasons had stock in the company's that they said would use green technology to save the world?!? That data?!? Give me a break all non-partisan organizations )those with nothing to lose on either end) say there is no correlation. But I guess if that data says so we have to pour money into Al Gores Multi-million dollar mansion and private jets that us 6 times the energy of the average American household. But let's forget about the facts and do whatever we are told because we are all at the mercy of the governments green policy's!

    Are you stupid? Without the data, you can see that over the years, the Earth has been gradually getting warmer. You can think for a minute, maybe the ozone layer thickening and huge glaciers melting, and the rise of sea levels have some connection. Think scientifically before you sprout this government talk. And nope, we dont have to 'pour our money' because this isn't even about Al Gore. You can start reducing your CO2 emissions instead.

    When my mom was a kid we were going into an ice age and we polluted way more than we do now. The earth is heating up and we can only pretend to know why, well besides that's what it does.

    It is most definitely not a myth, and all one has to do is look at the data. The real controversy is how much of it is being caused by humans.

    Global weather is changing all the time, it has nothing to do with man..it has very little to do with man.

    Yes, but how do you account for the rapid increase in global temperature? It would be a mighty coincidence for temperatures to start rising rapidly with the massive increase in greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation.

    .There is no rapid increase of greenhouse gases. You're being suckered by the propaganda designed to control and enslave you in high taxes and fake fees under the guise of saving the earth.

    Eh, no. There has been an increase in greenhouse gas emissions, and that is a verifiable fact. With the increased use of fossil fuels worldwide in the past few decades, there has been an increase in emissions of CO2, methane, and other greenhouse gases. Furthermore, the damages previously caused by CFCs is continuing to deplete the ozone layer and has been proven to do so. Burning fossil fuels releases greenhouse gases, there is no denying that. If you don't believe that, then you really need to get a grip on reality. How much greenhouse gases are effecting the climate is another issue, but there is no denying that they do to some degree.

    There are more greenhouses gases that are naturally emitted by nature by way of volcanic eruptions. Technology has vastly reduced emissions from petroleum based energies. The ozone layer reduces in size during the summer months only to be restored in winter months. Greater greenhouse gases will result in greater plant growth and more vigorous harvests... just like in an actual greenhouse. These, too, are verifiable facts. You choose which scientists to believe. This is all a ploy to restrict your freedom to drive your car and what vehicle you may have, what light bulb to use, food you may eat, and how much of your money you may keep. If all is so dire, then why do our grand leaders fly around in petroleum burning jets, drive around in gas guzzling limos, and jack the heat on high in their mansions while giving talks on how you need to freeze, drive a golf cart, and live in a hole?

    It is true that most greenhouse gas emissions are from natural processes, but even a small additional amount is enough to disturb the balance of Earth's ecosystems. "Technology has vastly reduced emissions from petroleum based energies" There is progress, but it isn't enough. There needs to be more regulations and certain countries, such as India and China, don't have them. Global CO2 emissions were at a record high in 2011, and probably will be even higher this year. The ozone layer reduction during the spring has been increasing rapidly in volume since CFCs were introduced and there is a hole in the ozone layer near the south pole. "Greater greenhouse gases will result in greater plant growth and more vigorous harvests" That may be true in some parts of the world (such as North America), but not in general. The greenhouse effect result will result in higher temperatures (and it already has, global temperatures have risen more than 1 degree since the beginning of the 20th century, at an increasingly rapid rate) which will contribute to the melting of the polar ice caps, and a rising sea level. The rising temperatures in the ocean will contribute to stronger hurricanes and more severe weather. These are verifiable facts. You can choose to believe what you want, but the evidence for global warming is strong. Do you seriously believe this is a conspiracy? Why would people want to restrict your freedoms? Seems ridiculous to me.

    The pattern of :global warming has been so irregular and inconsistent that it required a renaming--- "climate change." You treat climate conditions as a static event. There have been vast swings in temperature for extended periods throughout prehistory of earth. Man has kept weather records for only a little over a hundred years. There are many scientists the refute the notion of man made global warming, Governments and false leaders have used this as an opportunity to have a power grab by restricting citizens freedoms through senseless and crippling regulations, denying us cheap energy, and threatening the sovereignty of nations. I regret terribly that this seems so ridiculous to you and you reduce what I know as being conspiracy theories. You seem quite smug and dogmatic with your opinions.

    The patterns of climate change have been relatively constant in the past 100 years and especially in the past few decades. People have only kept records of temperatures since very recently in history, but we can find evidence of previous climates from examining other evidence. Ice cores contain information about what the atmosphere's composition was in the past. Climate change normally happens gradually over hundreds or thousands of years, but has been happening more rapidly than is normal in recent years. Yes, there are some scientists that disagree that global warming is caused by humans, but most scientists agree that human activities are having an effect on the climate. No one knows for certain what will happen, but precautions should be taken because of the evidence suggesting a human impact on global climate. Better safe than sorry imo.

    Just because we have lived in a stable climate for an extended period that doesn't mean that there won't be changes rapid or otherwise. Scientist still debate how rapid these changes are. It is also debatable that most scientists agree about global warming. We should all be good stewards to the earth with meaningful behavior such as discouraging sprawl development, compost yard waste, support free enterprise solutions to alternative energy. Not succumbing to excessive government regulations, taxation, and fees.
