Interesting how this poll reflects its bias from the start. There is no "global warming is not taking place" option.

"Global warming is a giant hoax" is right. It sure has made Al Gore tons of money, which he can spend on his huge mansion.

There are natrual ups and downs in temperature trends.

Global warming, if it exists, is more of a natural phenomenom rather than man made.

Temperatures have been rising for a number of years, but not caused by human activity. It was mild in Greenland, when the Vikings colonized the coastal area, which was then ice free.

"How about this snow in all 50 (or is it 57) states this week."

Don't exaggerate, it is only 49 (or is it 56) states. Or maybe Hawaii DOES have some snow on the top of a mountain. Hmmmmmmmmm.

My opinion is Al Gore is hiding or caught under a snow drift someplace. How about this snow in all 50 (or is it 57) states this week.

It is natural but accelerated by human activity.

The Industrial Revolution began 200+ years ago, about the same time that the Earth's population reached 1 billion. We began using, burning oil in substantial amounts 100+ years ago.

Although it is mind boggling to imagine, we live in a confined space: The Earth does have a ceiling. Our population is now over 6 billion.

You wouldn't run a car continually in any enclosed space, of any size. Now imagine almost a billion cars doing it, while at the same time the natural process for absorbing the exhaust is being eliminated, little by little.

And that's just cars. Not factories, not boats, not agriculture and not airline flights, which add up to almost 200,000 every day and over 65 million flights a year.

And we are running out of places to put all that exhaust.

ə the point is, it's not something we can stop, but we _can_ eliminate our contribution to it.
i would have selected that it is a natural phenomenon accelerated by humans. ə

Well, it just MAY be a natural fluctuation. But the last time that it naturally fluctuated like it is now, our ancestors were running around in fur underwear.
WHAT difference does it make WHO or WHAT started it? IT IS HAPPENING.

The point is that the house is burning and if we don't do EVERYTHING we can to slow it down, a whole bunch of our descendants are not going to have anywhere to live. But that's only going to apply to people who live within 10 miles of an ocean ... or live anywhere else ... because all those people that used to live near an ocean, gotta go somewhere. And if there is drinkable water near where you live, they're coming. So move over.

The Earth has been through thousands (maybe millions) of complete changes in its atmosphere and climate. Early on, it had NO atmosphere. Later, the atmosphere was primarily Methane gas. Each of those conditions existed for millions of years before changing. Then, more than once, the air was completely filled with fire. These were all natural changes, natural fluctuations in conditions. Extinction is a natural occurring phenomenon. Things change, sometimes quickly. You, as a species, either adapt ... or die. In Earth's history, most species have died out because they didn't or couldn't change fast enough.

The Earth has been here for about 4 Billion years. We have been here, been a species, for about 200,000 years. We, homo sapiens, are the new kids on the block.

If the Earth was a 100 year old man, we would be less than 2 days old.
