To say that global warming is the biggest challenge that exist right now is to say that the Earths temperature is hotter than the optimal temperature. So if the current Earth temperature is at A how much does the temperature need to drop until the earth is safe? What is the possibility that the Earths current temperature is lower than the optimal temperature?

This how thing is nothing more than a political agenda aimed at controlling society. The fact is that the earth is warming from the last ice age, and furthermore that warming ended in 1998 and we are now cooling. According to the reading I have been doing, the CO2 levels at one time were 25 times the levels that they are now at, and that furthermore CO2 levels have very little to do with the climate, as CO2 is a trace gas, and is also essential to life. The sun and water vapor are what determines the climate,and the idea man has any significant influence in that respect is merely a product of a political agenda and has no basis in science. Man made climate change is a religion begun by those who want to control our lives and get rich by running cap and trade schemes. Only a complete moron would fall for this bs.

well it seems you have a point there. i am still confused where to blame the crazy weather we have now . whether to point it to the global warming cause there are some conflicting reports to the reasons for the change of weather. i thought before the earth will get warmer but now it seems to getting colder. i don't what we will have to expect on our weather in the future.

I have no idea, but it is lower now thanks to the absence of sun spots. We are in a period of cooling and although some may want it cooler (people who live in Southern Asia or Africa around the equator, for instance) right now in the Canadian Prairies it is around 20 below celcius. In fact, they would rather that our temperature go down to 80 below celcius because it will not be so hot for them. By doing so, our short growing season would be even shorter. However the temperature of the earth is regulated without man's intervention. God does a very good job of making sure of that.
