it is a fact that global warming is taking place. when we carelessly produced all those gases and let it into the atmosphere, no one bothered. the responsibility should be fixed on to those and it not those governments.

I would have to say man is to blame,yes some of this is the natural process of nature,but if you think about everything,man is to blame..Think about everything...Alot of humans have torn down animal habitats,which makes alot of the animals become extinct,and that is one reason for Mass extinctions,and most of the things that we tear down animal habitats for,contrbutes to breaking down the Ozone Layer,And causing the greenhouse effect to be even warmer,and to contain,and hold more air,and also,A long time ago,alot of the things people use in the environment help break down the Ozone Layer,and it helped contribute to Global warming,and alot of people now days still use alot of things that hurt the environment,and they seem not to care about what the effects will be later on in the years,like the Ozone Layer,not being good enough to block harmful rays,and to protect us,which will cause alot of dissease,like cancer,leukemia,and so on,and so forth,and alot of people still smoke,Use pesticides,use hairsprays,and alot of other things that help hurt the environment,and do not really care about what will happen in the future,because they no that they will not be aruond to see it happen,and to be effected by it,but what they do not think about is if they have children,we need to think about the next generations,and try to help save the environment,and now as I said in another posts,scientists think now that there is only 99 percent of what we used to have has become extinct,and they by the year 2100 the earth will have 14 billion people living on it,and I do not think the earth will be able to hold out that many people,that is if the earth is not destroyed,and completely gone by then,I think what will actually happen,Is the earth will become to polluted,won't be enough trees to help things out,and the earth could explode,or it could floor,because the polar will be to hot to stay cold enough to not floor,or either it will be way to hot for us to substain life anymore,and I do not people think about the future,and bad we are hurting this,part of it is nature,but humans have more than nature,A way lot more to do with the destruction of the earth,and the environments,and if you think about it, 1 out of 10 bed now days go to bed hungry,and I do beleve the world will end soon,in the next few years,I am not trying to scare people,but I am saying,if we do not try ,and stop the bad things that we are now doing on earth,there will be no earth,and we will no longer be able to survive,because of all the heat,and gases in the air,and because of the diseases in the Ozone Layer,and because of flooding in Polar Ice Caps,and no one really seems to be concerned about it.

i dont believe it is a natural process but is defintely man made phenomenons.man is speeding up the end of earth by ruthless exploitation of nature.

Partly, man is to be blamed. He doesn't care about environment. Pollution of the air is so bad that the ozone layer gets a hole and make way for the sunlight to directly affect the life on earth.

I do disagree with the previous post -- this is a ntural phenomenon. Man is actually a very puny creature with hardly any power at all, the worst man can do is make a mess of the environment he lives in but the planet is strong and can survive that; much the same as a three year old messes up their bed room but doesn't actually destroy the structural integrity of the room. Examination of Ice bores in the Antarctic have shown that on six previous occasions the polarity of the planet has reversed itself, this will be the seventh time. No big deal, just a bit of catastrophy and hayhem. :D:D:D
