I don't see how this is man made.

A short answer for how climate change is now man-made is that additional carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, regardless of source, reduces the thickness of the Arctic Ocean ice sheet. Calculations based on the production of coal and oil and natural gas and cement show that we humans inject roughly 56 billion metric tons per year of CO2 into Earth's atmosphere. Earth is actually a net absorber of some of that 56 billion metric tons, but the absorption by Earth is not total, meaning that we humans are the source of that additional carbon dioxide that thins the Arctic ice.

In the end, we either choose to undo the damage we have done, or condemn future generations to starvation, war and death on an epic scale.<br />
<br />
What shall we do? Ignore the evidence? Wait until the train is off the tracks before we slow down?<br />
<br />
Or act as if the future matters?<br />
<br />
It does, I promise you, for all of us will spend the rest of our lives there.

Good point.

And, of course, now even the mighty Bjorn Lomborg, writer of "The great global warming hoax" has admitted that human caused global warming is real an that Carbon Taxes will have to be instituted on a global scale or our technological civilization will end.

"Sir....just quit ******* ******* in my ******* pool!" I'll remember this one.

If I have a swimming pool and one of my neighbor's kids ****** in it...will it radically change the ph balance?<br />
<br />
No.<br />
<br />
What if I have 50,000 people all peeing in the same swimming pool every single day for 10 years? Would that have any "impact" on the ph balance of the water in the pool?<br />
<br />
Yup.<br />
<br />
What if it was a pool with just ordinary water, no chlorine or chemicals....would it hurt to open your eyes under water?<br />
<br />
No.<br />
<br />
Would it hurt AFTER 50,000 people pissed in that pool for 10 years straight?<br />
<br />
Yup.<br />
<br />
We're all resonable people and we can all see how massive non-stop doses of urine in a closed system can radically impact the chemical content <br />
<br />
So I'm not understanding why it is that some people (obviously not anyone on this thread) can't seem to grasp how spewing 50 metric TONS of industrial particulates and dust into the atmosphere EVERY SINGLE DAY has an effect on weather patterns.<br />
<br />
The cries of "climate change is all a hoax!" reminds me of the pool example. I'm sure if we asked just one of the 50,000 ******* if he thought his urine was having any impact on water quality he would say, "Of course not! I'm just one person! It's all just natural chemicals anyway and therefor it's physically impossible for anything I'm doing to impact anything else. Their both liquids, right?"<br />
<br />
Yeah....not exactly, but okay.<br />
<br />
And when I suggest he might want to consider ******* in a restroom pay toilet (5 cents) for sanitary reasons I'm positive he would respond, "Ah ha! I knew it! It's all about money! It's all about scare tactics and junk science and trying to make a million dollars!"<br />
<br />
Sir....just quit ******* ******* in my ******* pool!<br />
<br />
And even if we did somehow, someway manage to outlaw or regulate the pool-*******, you know what would happen next.<br />
<br />
Sir....pull your pants up! You may not **** in the pool either! No...sir....no....just because it's "organic" doesn't mean that you....will you just stop ******** in the pool fer ****'s sake!?!

Oh god this story and comments made me lol

You guys are just taking random guesses. COME ON PEOPLE! STAY INFORMED AND YOU'LL KNOW.

i would think man and industrialization has added to some degree ... 5% or less.<br />
<br />
The earth has been doing this for millennium and will continue to do so when we are gone.<br />
<br />
Global Cooling ... Global Warming ... and i think we've got back to global Cooling in the news this week.<br />
<br />
A scam to get money and make millionaires ... with friends so their US taxes will be small.<br />
<br />
Personal responsibility is the answer. That can not be legislated. Income Tax is legislated and many of this Administration and others somehow don't bother to pay and then get no jail time.<br />
<br />
If it could be legislated ... their would be NO Tax Cheats!<br />
<br />
<br />
Let's

i too believe it nothing more than a way to make lots of money for someone.
