Ok all u tree huggers out there. What r ur views on these hot topics, and what should we do about them

Anyone who thinks Global Warming is a good thing needs a hole in their head. However, is it the end of civilization as we know it? Probably not. Is it man made? I doubt it and certainly not entirely. Is there anything that we can do to stop it? I doubt it.

So do I, it's incredibly annoying.

I prefer the term Climate Change anyway. It's just a period in our earth's life. We are leaving an ice age, we cannot stop it.

global warming is a natural occurance, it wasnt caused by humans and it cant be stopped by humans.

yeah, its kinda out of our hands anyways. sure, we can plant some trees, cut down on emissions, ride bicycles instead of driving, and stop destroying ancient rainforests, but at the end of the day, the climate is still gonna change, whether we want it to or not.
#11
It's happening. Whether we are the cause or not is yet to be seen. Which reminds me, have a gander at this:

Also, see this video, whatever your position. This objectively considers all outcomes, which works DESPITE it's doubt.

Well, unless they can get big factories everywhere on Earth to stop poluting and go green (The thought of it actually happening is highly laughable, mind you), I don't think I'll do my part as it would be microscopically insignificant. The human race will work itself out.

I just don't think I care anymore. I'm so bored of hearing about it on the news, and how it has seeped into almost every aspect of our lives. At school, all three sciences cover global warming in their own ways, in assembly 2/3rds of the time the headmistress with whine on about climate change and there are posters all around telling us how to save the Earth.

I'm planning on designing a car which runs on endangered species, does 0.5mpg and its waste is pure blocks of carbon and sulphur dioxide, so intense that acid rain actually comes out of the exhaust.

I'd probably listen to all the eco-mentalists if they weren't so earnest and boring, they all wear cardigans and tofu woven trousers, and they talk to us about the threatened life of Polar Bears whilst knitting yoghurt.

I wish people would

A) Look things up before they say anything

B) Or gtfo

Global surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C (1.33 ± 0.32 °F) during the 100 years ending in 2005.[1][2] The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes "most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-twentieth century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations"[3][4] via an enhanced greenhouse effect. Natural phenomena such as solar variation combined with volcanoes probably had a small warming effect from pre-industrial times to 1950 and a small cooling effect from 1950 onward.[5][6] These basic conclusions have been endorsed by at least 30 scientific societies and academies of science,[7] including all of the national academies of science of the major industrialized countries.[8][9][10] While individual scientists have voiced disagreement with these findings,[11] the overwhelming majority of scientists working on climate change agree with the IPCC's main conclusions.[12][13]


For those who didn't know what anthropogenic means:

Anthropogenic effects, processes, objects, or materials are those that are derived from human activities, as opposed to those occurring in natural environments without human influences.

Yes and I'm bored with explaining why children keep dissappearing around my yard but it's still a concern and if you're not going to adress it properply you might just as well be quiet and accept whatever is coming.

Damn you and your bad puns.

But seriously, how can anyone have views on this? There shouldn't be opposing views on the matter. There should just be "This is really happening and we need to fix it." But noooo, let's fight the issue because we want to use the money for waging wars instead of saving the environment.

Coincidentally, I have been compling an (incomplete) list of world scientific organisations that support the consensus view that anthropogenic climate change is occurring, I thought I'd share for those of you who think that there is no scientific consensus on the issue.

LordBishek, I really enjoy your contributions to UG, but this illustrates one of my great frustrations - people say 'we don't know if we are the cause' - well the relevant scientific community mentioned above seems pretty certain on who is causing current Climate Change...
