    Answer is D. "Global warming" is not a fact. It is a conclusion some draw from data or facts. The results section of a research paper documents the facts. The paper's discussion section includes conclusions the researchers have drawn.\

    Global warming is more accurately a conclusive label of agreement for some people, but even then there are differences of interpretation on what, when, how, how much, etc. The same differences of opinion don't exist for a,b, and c.

    C is the odd one out. It would flunk any English class.

    Global warming is more than a fact. It is a well-documented theory. Big Energy and its myrmidons attacking it doesn't make any difference.

    Global warming is a fact. The earth warmed by 0.8 C in the 20th century and is on track to warm about the same amount this century. Don't believe me? Run a best fit line from 2001 and 2018 and then extrapolate to the end of the century.

    One of the big misunderstandings is that any warming is bad.

    At the risk of inserting some actual science into this

    The Sun is 109 time bigger than the Earth in diameter, you could fit 1.3 million Earths inside the Sun. The 300000 figure you use seems to relate to the weight (not size) difference, the Sun is 330000 the weight of the Earth.

    All correct as written. C is the most vague but still correct.

    A: 2 + 2 may not equal 4 if on the way between 2 and 4 the 2 crumbles and splits in half.

    The rest are established facts.

    Apart from the previously identified capitalization fail in option C, the answer is probably D.

    Because it's the only one that doesn't include a number, either in numeral form or spelled out.

    Glad I could help.

    Most people who "believe in" AGW couldn't work the first complex equation supporting it nor even explaining why each variable is relevant.

    So the only REAL and VALID questions so far are, What are WE supposed to do and what will the govt do with all the money they'll use to "combat" this?

    A really nice question would be, what effect will these dollars and efforts have?

      They can't even figure out this simple problem. One guy thinks theories & facts are the same thing. Others can't distinguish facts from conclusions. One user here appears to doubt that 2+2 = 4. Another guy thinks that an equivocal term like global warming is more definitive than the sun's size.
