Default Global warming: true or false?

We’ve had a few warm days.

Does the fact we’ve only got data for 200 years (ignoring the ice cores) on something that is 4 billion years old not suggest we don’t know what the f*** we’re on about?

Happy to trust the scientists over a talking horse on this one I'm afraid.

Global warming is happening. We can measure it. Climate change is happening, we can see it with our own eyes. Three things however are still in discussion...

1. Are humans responsible or is this a natural cycle that would have happened anyway ?

2. Can we actually do anything about it or have we already reached tipping point ?

3. If we have already reached tipping point, can we survive it?

Climate change scientists livelihood depend on the bandwagon keeping rolling.

Hence them being caught out lying about the data.

The ‘answers’ to the questions posed are really irrelevant though.

If there’s even a 1% chance that this is a problem of our own making, and that we can still do something to alleviate it, we should go full speed ahead and do it. Wasting time discussing whether we’re responsible or not is utter idiocy at this point, in my view.

True.

But temperature etc. We’re always going to change regardless of humans, just as it did before humans arrived. Like it or not the world is constantly changing..
