    A scientist has recently announced that Mars is getting warmer, leading some to conclude that variations in the Sun's temperature is the cause of global warming, and not carbon emissions.

    It is also well known that the Earth has had warming and cooling phases since the beginning of time. All these occurred before carbon emissions.

    The cap of Antartica is growing larger, leading some to believe that the Earth is not, in fact, getting warmer.

    Scientists who have expressed doubt about global warming have received death threats. Some have declared that these scientists should be put on trial as "deniers" in the same way Holocaust deniers are punished in Europe. Some have declared that climatologists who doubt global warming should have their certifications pulled.

    Al Gore has made millions of dollars with his movie about global warming. He lives in a giant mansion and uses more energy in a month than most people use in a year. He flies around the world in a private jet, a jet which is adding to carbon emissions in the environment. He has started a company that sells "carbon credits" which means if you pay Al Gore money, its okay for you to pollute.

    Please don't threaten me with death, but I think there's room for doubt that global warming, if it exists, is caused by carbon emissions.

    Ofcourse the sun causes global warming, what else would? That idea is that anthropogenic global warming might be harmful, but we dont have the science to prove it yet. AND Ofcourse mars is getting warmer, its atmosphere is 95% carbon dioxide you idiots. Mars is a walking greenhouse effect on its own.

    I agree with RSR (mark this rare occasion).

    Like the Earth, Mars is getting hotter. Although we haven’t explored much of Mars, it seems safe to say that the Martians aren’t driving Hummers and living like we are here. So we can’t blame Martian Warming on something different that Earth Warming or ise versa.

    That leads to a common suspect - The Sun.

    It is true, that the Sun is getting hotter. That is the reason for Global Warming.
    Personally I welcome it, less shoveling snow, more motorcycle riding!
