A question for global warming deniers...?

I hear this argument a lot from you guys, and I want to know why.

Apparently, the fact that the Earth has gone through warming cycles before means man is completely incapable of warming the earth.

Why is that? Could it not be true that warming can happen both naturally AND artificially? Isn't that a bit like saying

"Forest fires have occurred on earth for millions of years. Thus, humans cannot be responsible for forest fires"

If naturally rising and falling CO2 levels are responsible for earth's natural warming and cooling cycles, then it would make sense that artificially raising the CO2 levels would lead to artificial warming, on top of the natural warming cycle, right?

But I guess Rush Limbaugh doesn't mention that, does he?

    Wow did the Con's even read your question? Global Climate change is very real and has been an influenced, for the worst, by people. I know this because there is a scientific consensus regarding it's reality and our influence. When you have 9,999 papered and highly regarded scientists saying we have a important impact on GCC and only 1, of the 1,000, getting his money from Exxon and denying- there is no doubt that we should hedge our bets - even if it's just in case. TAking action now is what a reasonable person would do.

    Source(s): 1 shill for Exxon compared to 9,999 respected scientists, how wouldn't believe that? And who wouldn't want to protect their children and families, just in case?

    It is actually the global warmers that are religious and deny that global warming is cyclical and wholly natural. Great sceptics of the past like Einstein and Galileo were also called deniers however science is still proving their theories today... the global warming social movement is finished as nobody believes in the GW religion any more. IN any case The global warmers don't have any science apart from computer models this and computer models that. Garbage in equals garbage out. How do they observe "climate" being as climate is supposed to be the average weather over a long period of time? How does anybody seriously study climate with no raw data, or haven’t they heard the historical climate data appears to be missing. In its place is a bunch of homogenized crap made up by a guy we should all trust because he like them only has our best interest at heart and honest he got it all right the first time and didn’t need it any more so he deleted it? How do they calculate man made carbon dioxide when 72% of the planet is under oceans and nobody has the slightest clue how many undersea volcanoes that are active? There could be 300% or more unknown CO2 spewing sources under our oceans. When the main greenhouse gas, water is 99.9 % more prevalent than Carbon dioxide why has the climate never run away as they all claim a couple parts per million of CO2 is supposed to do. What happened to the 4500 missing weather stations that we used up until 1970s. How do they compare the temperature of a planet over time when they are not even using the same data sources? Why are 300 weather stations in Canada’s Arctic ignored and only one used? It’s situated on an Island known as the garden spot of the Arctic.

    There is a flaw in your question. CO2 is a natural gas produced by all living things, the pollution that man causes is CO Carbon MONOXIDE not DIOXIDE (co2). Cars, trucks, planes, etc Create CO. So why not regulate that instead of what comes out of your month? If we were to revert back to live like cave man, the Earth would still warm and cool.

    So it kind of puts holes in your statement. "If naturally rising and falling CO2 levels are responsible for earth's natural warming and cooling cycles, then it would make sense that artificially raising the CO2 levels would lead to artificial warming, on top of the natural warming cycle, right"

    Question is why do you believe the false science behind your argument?

    You might be right but the fact that some of the people who are peddling climate change have been caught cooking the books and Al Gore a real con artist trying to sell us on the idea of global warming. All this makes me a little suspicious and I don't listen to Rush so he doesn't influence what I think so for right now I have toi say that I don't believe in man made global warming .

    Your logic is miniscule and must be handled with tweezers. The earth has always had cooling and warming trends. In fifth grade, they should have taught you about the ice age, etc. In the seventies they told us man was causing global cooling. Now, they want us to believe man is causing global warming. The earth has done this long before the industrialization of man and long before cow farts became a dangerous gas. The evidence is out there. Look for it

    There is NO proof that it happens because of man! There was an ice age and there were few to no people so what was the cause?

    There was a mid-evil warming period and there were still few people and no SUVs so what was the cause?

    In the 1970's we were told that we were experiencing global cooling and in the 1990's we are told that we are experiencing global warming. How could man have cause both global warming and global cooling?

    But I guess Al Gore and the UN fail to mention this don't they?

    Your argument is specious. You are saying that if I pee in the ocean I have raised the water levels and NYC will thus be swamped. Why not try a more realistic argument.

    It is a question of relationships. Shall we eliminate cattle because cows fart?

    It follows, therefore, that if YOU stop breathing, and thus stop exhaling CO2, the world would be better off.

    Ok, be a man, do your part to prevent global warming.

    CO2 levels trail temperature in the ice record by 50 - 500 years

    The CO2 level is not the cause of the temperature. It is a consequence of it.

    Because nature is in charge..We are very insignificant compared to the power of nature, Nature could wipe us all out in a spilt second if it wished to, We depend on it for our air, plants, food and drink etc basically to survive. all through history it has been proven we have been constantly in and out of ice ages we didn't have cars or factories or whatever millions of years ago or even hundreds of years ago what was the excuse for the ice ages then?

    When you think of global warming just look outside depending on where you are and see all the snow and been one of the worst winters for years.

    Its just another excuse to get more money out of us and gain more control over us by telling us all this is for our own good to save the planet for the so called green tax.

    People who do believe it are acting like sheep, Blindly and gullably following whatever they are told and questioning nothing at least I have an open mind.

    Care to explain why C02 levels have continued to increase since 1998, but its cooler now than it was in 1998 ?

    I thought manmade C02 caused the temperature to increase.

    Care to explain why despite the largest mandmade increase in C02 every recorded in the post WW ll industrial expansion, global tempatures decreased from 1945 to 1975 ?
