    I'm curious as to if any of you guys/girls are non-believes that the Earths climate is changing. I'm just a marinebiology student, but I've done a lot of research on this and am a firm believer that the Earth is warming and that humans are having an impact.

    Let the good times roll.

    Oh I believe it's changing... Just like it always has and always will. I think most of it is a lot of hot air and the popular thing to side with.

    You won't get any argument from me. I'm voting for whoever will acknowledge human-influenced climate change and will do something about it and not simply deny it's happening. In fact in our forthcoming upper house (Senate) election I may vote Greens instead of my usual Labor just to make sure someone with an environmental voice gets into the upper house.

    What do you dispute in the research behind man-made global warming?

    Because I know that they tried to claim the same crap about global cooling 20 yrs ago. It's called hysteria. The scientific communtity isn't in agreement that it's man made. How about the fact that Mars has been heating up with us? Oh I know that damn rover we sent up there caused that. Maybe just maybe... this is all NATURAL!!!

    But if you want to be an alarmist and fall for the hype... Go for it.

    Yes. "A new Ice Age" was all the rage.

    But a "new ice age" cant be twisted to support an anti-capitalism, anti-conumerism, anti-property rights agenda.

    Environmentalists are like watermellons:
    Green on the outside, Red on the inside.

    Mars heating up has been proven to have no correlation with Earth. This was a poor attempt to disprove mmGW, because it was quickly debunked. I don't even think the research made it past peer review.

    There's no hard evidence it's caused by man.

    However, there's lots of evidence that the climate changes on a regular basis and always has.

    I just watched a History channel show on this the other night. There was a mini-ice age in the 1300s which all but decimated the population. Population fluctuations are the norm...not some horrible occurrence caused by man (damn him).

    Arguing that man cannot or is not causing global warming is fascinating to anyone who witnessed the pollution of our rivers, lakes, and even ocean areas in the 60s and 70s. Dumping all sorts of waste caused major trouble. If we can pollute ocean areas, we certainly can pollute atmospheric areas. The streams died but eventually through the EPA and recognition of the problem most have come back to life and are safer.

    Another interesting aspect to this debate is the knee jerk reply from the corporate righties, it is proof positive MSM is conservative and corporately owned when a topic that should be a concern of our future is simply denied rather than scientifically investigated.

    And how is that possable. When it's the sun doing the heating up? The same sun that heats us. There's data to back up that the sun is creating all the heat we've had. There's even science to back me up on it.

    I have more if needed.... LOTS more.
