The temperatures have not risen for15 YEARS and the ice caps in the south pole are higher then ever-look it up (3 ice breakers are currently stuck in Antarctica and it is currently summer in the south pole). The earth has always had extreme temperature changes look it up. Most of the earth's temperature changes are based on our sun's activity. There is a LOT of money to be made in "climate change" look at Al Gore. Do your own research.

Many people are scared of change, when presented with the hope, however feeble, that a problem does not exist, they will grasp at that faint hope. Those that most violently deny the fact of climate change are driven by political motivation rather than any scientific evidence

By your own description you are a 'denier', because you are skeptical of whether it's caused by humans. So which of the reasons you give applies to you? Now, hurricanes and tornados are not becoming more intense and frequent, so it looks like you have been misinformed by someone trying to scare you. Plus there is a big difference between saying CO2 will warm the planet by .5C and CO2 will warm the planet by 5C. Basic physics suggests about 1.2C, and negative feedbacks would moderate this warming.

You sound like a wannabe skeptic yourself. Hard to tell Lvnlvn ....."The temperatures have not risen for 15 YEARS" That is a lie you took from someone who took it from someone who lied about data GW has nothing to do with Gore That is just conspiracy BS Global warming is still continuing and 2013 is expected to be in or near the top ten warmest years

I think they are scared to face up to the truth if us humans are the cause of global warming then were not going to admit it are we

But overall it's obvious that global climate change is happening Well not according to Uk Met or East Anglia Uni
Answer #7 | 05/01 2014 14:40
Because it's not happening and the theory is all WRONG. Top climate scientists say there is no man-made Global Warming. The Great Global Warming Swindle Global Warming Doomsday Called Off -----------------------

It is good that you are thinking about it. unlike what Trevor says most uneducated people do not think about it and just accept what they are told, I myself used to believe in climate change until some doubts crept in, and I started doing some research on the subject, now I am a convinced skeptic, but dont believe me find out for yourself.

It could be that they are better educated than are you in the principles of logic and reasoning, and are therefore less susceptible to the false cause hypothesis; correlation is not causation. But, for you, correlation alone is sufficient to lead you to conclude that your hypothesis is "undeniable." Nothing scientific is 'undeniable.'
