Don't disagree with Japanese scientists.

If we don't, they will send giant robots to kill us.

Of course global warming isn't man made, this has been known for decades. It's accelerated by man, not caused by man.

Global warming isn't real, it's just a theory.




It's the process of which man accelerates global warming that's just a theory, not global warming itself.

They're saying that there's no proof that we affect it:

"We should be cautious, IPCC's theory that atmospheric temperature has risen since 2000 in correspondence with CO2 is nothing but a hypothesis. "

Akasofu calls the post-2000 warming trend hypothetical. His harshest words are reserved for advocates who give conjecture the authority of fact.

"Before anyone noticed, this hypothesis has been substituted for truth... The opinion that great disaster will really happen must be broken."

I did an ecology research project for my second year in university. 500 million years ago greenhouse gasses were 20 times higher than they are today. It was all from soil respiration.
Greenhouse gasses contributing to global warming all go through trends, getting higher and lower all throughout history.

Soil respiration isn't the only thing that effects greenhouse gas levels, you've also got foraminifera, carbonate formation etc

I really can't be bothered getting into another debate...

I will say I find this comment strange.

"Consequently, after 2000, although it should have continued to rise, atmospheric temperature stabilised completely (despite CO2 emissions continuing to increase)."

NASA disagree...
http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs/Fig.A2.txt

A 0.1 degree increase in the last decade is not a stabilisation, it is a huge increase.

Although I said I don't want to get into another debate (uni starts in two days and I'm quite busy), I'll just add two more things to think about.

1.) This is one paper. Since AR4 hundreds, indeed thousands, of papers have been published consistent with their findings on anthropogenic climate change, they just aren't as headline grabbing for the conspiracy theorists.
2.) Here is something to put present climate change in perspective.

"Professor Tim Naish, Director of Victoria’s Antarctic Research Centre says Antarctica’s ice sheets have grown and collapsed at least 40 times over the past five million years."

Let's do the maths here: 5,000,000/40 = 125,000 years on average between the collapse and growth of Antarctica's ice sheets. Now, 125,000 years may not seem like much, but think about it this way: modern humans (Homo sapians sapians) first appear in the fossil record about 130,000 years ago. Yes, these cycles take the length of the entire history of human-kind to naturally manifest. With the rate of climate change we are seeing now, it may take only a few hundred years before we start seeing major melting of the Antarctic ice sheet (indeed, I saw a study a couple of days ago saying the Antarctic is warming very rapidly) - does that still sound natural to you?

wrong. Politicians have a lot more to gain from the oil companies.

that's Ice Age cold fella, The smaller differences(.1C) time spans are much smaller. It was this hot 400 years ago. and will be again, also these things are always changing. Thermo-dynamics is unpredictable

Some of it is man made, but not all. My astronomy professor thinks the same thing. The earth goes through ice ages, we're kinda melting out of one that happened a few thousand years ago, we're just speeding the process up and making it worse by being careless
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

I think it's just dumb to say it's not a combination of both. People who think it's all man or all nature are neglecting the power of the other.

For example, people don't realise just how much pollution is given off by the himalayas. Even I couldn't believe it at first, but it makes sense.
