    Serious question for the global warming / climate change alarmists. . .

    It's a pretty simple question, really. However, I'm sure it will spark at least a few interesting answers.

    "What percentage of the Earths temperature increases or rising sea levels (if any) can be attributed to natural causes?"

    What is the percentage breakdown?

    Ok. Trying to read that made my head hurt. If you made a good point? I have up trying to find it. I couldn't even tell what you were trying to say.

    Just a hunch? Or do you have some hard evidence to back it up?

    Probably 30% since 1950 and 70% 19th century until the 1950's.

    There are peer reviewed studies on the percentages of climate change that can be attributed to natural causes?

    Where?

    I wold like to see if they left anything out.

    There has never been man-caused warming/climate change in the past, yet sea levels have risen and fallen, just like the temperatures. Rising temperatures immediately following the end of the Little Ice Age is not alarming, unless people want it to be.

    The Industrial Revolution ended almost exactly the same time as the Little Ice Age (about 150 years ago). Our industrial ways parallel the time frame of the "warming" we've seen over the last 15 or so decades - they did not cause the "warming."

    I think you might want to edit that.

    Is there something you'd like to refute?
