What Are Your Thoughts On Global Warming?

There are so many skeptics and I am not one of them.

Globalll Warmmmmmminnnnnnngg! We are seriously polluting what surrounds us. That is a fact. No matter how skeptical we can be. We sure are causing a lot of harm to the World. And there is also the extinction of animals. All this is a proof enough that we are screwing with the environment and causing ourselves an alarm.

H G Wells had predicted the warming up way back but he supposed it would be a more natural phenomenon.

We are also running out of natural fuel. In a situation like this. If we believe not to accept the existence of global warming it is like we refuse to take responsibility. Which at this stage is an increased need.

The planet is not a pussy it can take alot of shit and be fine, such as massive asteroid collisions hundreds of thousands of volcano eruptions and tuns of cataclysmic weather changes, temperature changes, water current changes, land mass shifts and on and on. All of which are far worse then anything we can do.

Is your source really HG wells? He "predicted" it way back when huh? You mean way back in the 19th century? WOW then it must be true.

By the way we are NOT running out of natural fuel.

Why should we believe something that has been researched for all of 50 years (global worming) by people who have a direct benefit from its existence.

Animals have been going extinct since life existed on this planet, people have only been hear for a very short time and are as much apart of the natural world as anything els. Just because animals die, there is garbage on the side of the road, some douches say we are running out of fuel and a science fiction writer wrote about it in one of his FICTIONAL stories doesn't make it true and sure as hell doesn't make me want to take responsibility for anything.

Wow, the absolute ignorance that spews out of you is incredible.

"The planet is not a pussy it can take alot of shit and be fine, such as massive asteroid collisions hundreds of thousands of volcano eruptions and tuns of cataclysmic weather changes, temperature changes, water current changes, land mass shifts and on and on. All of which are far worse then anything we can do."

Yes, you are absolutely correct, the planet is going to be just fine, we're the ones that will be wiped out.

"By the way we are NOT running out of natural fuel. "

Most economists have already speculated that we have reached peak oil, the one's that think we haven't would not disagree that it is very very close. Gas reserves are in plentiful supply for probably the next 100 yrs.

"Why should we believe something that has been researched for all of 50 years (global worming"

Because that's what all the evidence points towards, and that is exactly what entire world's scientific community has reached a consensus on.

"by people who have a direct benefit from its existence. "

As usual the propagandists that you subscribe to have managed to convince you of the opposite of what is actually the case, the entire worlds business community have a vested interest in maintaining business as usual. The question is a really simple one, who do you beleive, the worlds entire scientific community whose sole purpose is to try to uncover the truth, or big business whose sole purpose to make profits?

"Animals have been going extinct since life existed on this planet, people have only been hear for a very short time and are as much apart of the natural world as anything els."

Again, I agree completely, but what exactly are you advocating, are you happy to see our species go extinct?

"Just because animals die, "

All of the worlds life support systems are being put under incredible pressure and stress due to the worlds rising temperatures, the global mean temperature has risen by well over 1 deg C since 1975, and many species have gone extinct as a result.

"some douches say we are running out of fuel"

Wow, your ignorance is breathtaking, no wonder the world is so fucked up, your are real testament to the incredible power of propaganda.

"a science fiction writer wrote about it in one of his FICTIONAL stories"

Actually some the worlds most credible scientisits have been writing about it since the 70s, since they began observing it, in recent times the truth has become incontrovertible because of the incredible amount of data and evidence collected from all over the world, and the incredibly powerful climate models that all predict the same thing. In fact, this evidence is so powerful that the entire worlds scientific community have reaced a consensus, this is an unheardof thing in science, and only serves to illustrate the dire importance with recognising this phenomenon for what it is.

How are we not running out of fuel? if you know how fuel is formed you would know it is more than likely we are running out of fuel. His source is not HG Wells, that is just something extra he added, and what is your source? Oh wait, right-wing bullshit. Actually people do not benefit from Global Warming's existence, it is so much cheaper to continue burning fuel and to charge people for electricity than to take action and save humanity.

You are wrong. Did you forget the ozone layer? And maybe the planet will be fine but humans won't.

Yeah, and you can remain a ruler and rule a World of extinct Homosapiens.

such as massive asteroid collisions hundreds of thousands of volcano eruptions and tuns of cataclysmic weather changes, temperature changes, water current changes, land mass shifts and on and on. All of which are far worse then anything we can do.

So lets wait for something like that to hit us while we still deplete the elements of our planets that are our major sources of survival. So probably kick the hut and stay tuned for what is up next.

By the way we are NOT running out of natural fuel.

OMG! I believe you!

Why should we believe something that has been researched for all of 50 year

That's right! We should believe you who rejects standardized observations and statistics and results by doctors who have spent lives on it, instead believing an assemblage that pertains to the fact that there is nothing wrong with inhaling hydrogen Cyanide and Phosgene.

Animals have been going extinct since life existed on this planet,

That is a very good reason to kill all the left animals for branded overcoats and fur on our boots or simply kill for joy. And finally have ourselves extinct from our planet as well.

people have only been hear for a very short time

So we are allowed to mess up the order.

sure as hell doesn't make me want to take responsibility for anything.

It's almost like your ignoring all the facts that surround us haunting the only existing qualities and you fail to act in understanding or unready to give it up. So you do not accept that we really are killing our co-species. Messing with the ozone layer or something like Leaving only 200 tigers left alive.

Lol it's happening and it's inevitable. All we can do now is prolong and try to desperately sustain our ozone layer .

I'm worried for humanity

at the same time glad we're gonna probably die because of our dumb ignorance.

Most of us anyways.

The fact that it exists is a fact, not a debate. What are my thought on it? Well, I don't think that Global Warming is a good thing. We've all seen 'The Day After Tomorrow'.

I made this debate because there are so many retarded people that call it a hoax (AKA Fox News) :)

Agreed, Global Warming is a watertight argument supported by peer reviewed research conducted by hundreds of independent scientific establishments and thousands of researchers around the globe. The decreasing salinity of the Atlantic ocean caused by polar ice melt will present Britain in particular with challenges for the future, the atlantic drfit is responsible for the UK's balmy temperate climate, if that fails due to the relative densities of the ocean changing then the UK is going to be more like Siberia...being on the same latitude.

Different challenges for different places.

I mention this as the effects of rampant fossil fuel use, cattle rearing etc may have direct and pressing consequences for any of us wherever we live, in good time.

Obviously fusion is the way out of reliance...fission isnt enough...and too problematic.

Oh my god! The day after tomorrow is fiction! If your going to base your opinion on fiction why dont you read "the state of fear" by Michael Crichton. I dont know how much research the writer of the day after tomorrow did but Michael did tons and put them all in his book but the story is fiction so maybe you will believe it.

I have a little experiment for those who believe that this is a hoax. Fill a gas can full of gas and dump it into a metal trash can (the heavy kind used in movies). Now take a match and light the fuel. Done? Now stick your head over the resulting fumes and take a few deep breaths. Try this using different types of fuels and flammable substances. Do this several times a week until you begin to notice a change in your breathing. Have your lungs checked to see if these resulting fumes have begun to thin out the tissue lining your lungs. The fuel fumes that we use everyday destroy everything in nature (over time) including the atmosphere. Wake Up!

It happens all the time and this poses a major threat to the environment and our Planet Earth as well. It is amazing that it can be controlled but in my perspective, it is forever.

global warming is the cause of human errors in this world we destroy the world nature spent millinuems to build within the matter of centuries, and place poisonous factories that lets off chemicals in the air that traps more heat than neccessary into the planet.

Global warming definitely exists. You hear about ice caps melting all the time. Planet earth is getting warmer.

This is a subject that became politicized in this country that should have never been politicized. It probably started with Al Gore's stupid documentary. Suddenly, you were liberal if you believed in global warming and conservative if you didn't. when I travel overseas, it's not a political issue. It's something that everyone does their part to curb. For example, when I'm in France is unbelievable how green they. You don't see any gas guzzling vehicles, there's a lot of clean green energy, you can get anywhere by train,

and people are happy to ride their bikes every now and then. There again, we're asking the American to get off his fucking ass and do something for a change.

Side: It Exists

It's true. Even Pope Francis put out an encyclical expressing that mankind is responsible for global warming.

Where are the real facts? Yes the earth is warming, but it does that on a regular basis. It also cools. One fact that can be calculated is there are more polar bears now than ever recorded before. Global warming? I think not. There are tons more facts than that but I prefer not to sit here all day and list them.

You did some research, well stop the presses, every scientist on the planet is wrong, you need to get down to your local research center, from there they will tell you where to collect your noble prize;-)

Global Warming is a misnomer. I believe Global Climate Change is occurring, due much to human activities.
