nullArray Posted June 29, 2009 Share Posted June 29, 2009 Its not global warming, its a human induced climate change, which includes things like deforestation, increased urbanization of land, rising population numbers, air pollution, massive reductions in fish stocks and converting yet more land into farms. How can you say that the impact of global industrialization in the last 100 years has had no impact on the climate? Carbon di-oxide levels are a very small part of this portfolio of problems. When people talk about global warming they are ignoring lots of other things, and yes it has been hijacked by political activists, but that doesn't discount the fact that we are having a negative effect on the planet as a whole. As for the youtube documentory, its a typical Channel 4 pseudo science hatchet job that has a lot of quotes and opinions but lax on actual science. It was made for entertainment value, and not for an actual unbiased view on the subject. Here is the debunking: http://www.durangobill.com/Swindle_Swindle.html http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/20...3/science.media http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Glo...Warming_Swindle Climate change isn't something you can dismiss with a TV show. Thanks VaKo..., People always says "the earth goes from hot periods to cold all the time." Atmospheric tests made a link between greenhouse gasses and those hot and cold periods. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, and there is far more in our atmosphere than would be naturally. Even if we are in a natural warming period, we're accelerating it to a level the earth may not be able to handle. Ironically, many of the folk that say "the earth goes from hot periods to cold all the time" frequently also say that the earth is 6000 years old. Very contradictory. VaKo made an interesting point about it's only a debate in America..., purely speculative, but I'd like to think it's because corporations are pumping money into politicians/news organizations/fake science companies/etc to cloud the field, create controversy, and spread lies... Oh well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
