Gloabal Warming. Personally, I think we(the worlds population) do play a small role in this whole situation. However, not as big of a role as most people play it out to be. What do you guys think?

I think everyone is believing a big lie. No one has presented irrefutable evidence that global warming exists. Proponents of global warming say that glaciers melting is an obvious result of global warming, but glaciers have melted and grown back repeatedly throughout history. Plus, those same proponents don't bother mentioning the glaciers that are currently growing, not very far away from the ones that are melting. If they did, it would throw a serious kink into their whole global warming agenda. They claim that global warming is to blame for the catastrophic storms in recent years. Weather, like climate change, works on a cyclical pattern. There have been other periods in the past when weather has been catastrophic, as well as periods when the weather has been calm in comparison. Besides, what makes a storm of any kind catastrophic, is the continued population growth in storm prone areas. Hurricanes have been occuring for hundreds of years, at least, in the South Atlantic and in the Gulf of Mexico, and some have been just as intense if not more so in comparison to those in recent years, and the reason the more recent ones get so much attention, aside from improved weather monitoring and reporting, is because they make landfall around major population centers. After all, who worries about the hurricane that never comes near land? It poses no threat. If, according to global warming alarmists, the earth as a whole is getting warmer, then I guess that means that Antarctica(the South Pole) doesn't really exist, because most of it is actually getting colder. And the CO2 claim is pretty rediculous when you think about it. Anyone who can remember being taught elementary science in grade school will also remember that CO2 emissions are a natural part of life. We exhale CO2 and the plant life around us takes in that CO2 and in return produces more oxygen that we need to exist. It is a never ending natural cycle. Animals also exhale CO2 and in turn benefit from the life supporting oxygen that the plants and trees give off. Not to mention the CO2 and other "greenhouse gases" such as methane that are given off when these animals and plants, as well as humans die and decay. But, according to the alarmists, it isn't the CO2 produced by these natural processes that is to blame, but instead, it is the CO2 us humans produce through our industry and other technological advances, that is the real culprit. But of course, this doesn't include all humans becasue there are still some countries that as a whole live primitively when compared to the more advanced, industriialised nations. So, it's assumed that these advanced countries are to blame for the whole global warming related CO2 problem. This doesn't exactly make sense when you realize that the amount of man-made CO2, when compared to the amount of CO2 produced by natural biological processes, as many scientists on the other side of the global warming argument have said, amounts to nothing more than a spit in the ocean. I find it rather amusing that so many people around the world can complain about the lies that their country's leaders tell them on a daily basis, about why they got involved in a particular war, or why they raise taxes when they say they won't, or about why the economy is suffering, or any number of other lies you can imagine, but when these same leaders bring up global warming and what we need to do to prevent it, everyone jumps on the bandwagon and treats them as if they're preaching the Gospel. I'm sorry, but they're gonna have to come up with some concrete, undeniable proof, before I'm gonna jump on that bandwagon. And they haven't yet.

Then show your eveidence. Global warming implies that temps everywhere around the globe, as a whole are getting warmer. That's a point that is pretty hard to make when climate experts(not the so called experts that argue in favor of global warming) say that places like the South Pole as a whole are getting colder. There may be places, and I do believe there are, where temps are warming, but this is a natural change that has happened throughout history. There are periods of time when the earth as a whole warms up and then times when the earth as a whole cools down. It's all a part of the natural order of things. But, like you said, even if global warming exists, which I don't believe it does, it's foolish to think we humans have any power over it.

I think we all have a part in global warming. Especial USA the county with the most CO2 per citizen. Economy play a too big role in the American socity so they push their enormous responsibility away. Take some responsibility for your actions and make it better instead of invade other countries because the MIGHT have a A-program.

And China isn't even a part of the Kyoto Treaty which was drawn up for the purpose of getting industrialized nations to reduce their manmade CO2 emissions. It doesn't even target China as well as other countries like Mexico and India, all three of which are in the top ten of nations producing the most GHG's. And the European Union, who I think created the Kyoto Treaty, and is perhaps the biggest supporter of the Treaty, has failed to live up to their share of the deal. Their emissions have increased rather than decreased.

There are far more people in China and the technology in china is growing with high speed... You can't blame the chinese they just begin using electricity as US- citizens have done for the last hundred years with out thinking of the consequences but on them self. The front figure of America is Paris Hilton and she truly tells what your all about!
