The thing with global warming is that we have NO observations on it. The issue is something that would need dozens of years of study, but it's only been thought of for twenty odd years. To say there is or is not global warming is just your own pretentious ass trying to commend yourself for being environmentally aware. It's definitely something that should be studied, but there's no way to tell whether we as humans are escalating the temperature changes or if it's just going at it's natural rate.

2012 was the hottest year on record in the continental U.S.. 99% of species that have lived on Earth are now extinct. Global sea level rose 17 centimeters in the last century. The 20 warmest years in recorded history have all occurred since 1981. The polar ice caps are melting at unprecedented levels. Between 150 and 200 species become extinct each day. There is much more evidence to support this. Global warming is not just someone's "own pretentious ass trying to commend yourself for being environmentally aware", with all due respect. Global warming activists are simply knowledgeable people who are trying to save our planet from certain destruction.

Okay so some people say that burning fossil fuels(which produces ozone) are the problem but ozone doesn't just keep heat in it also keeps heat out so in theory it should be a balanced system.

People who say they don't believe in global warming mean that they don't believe that humans are causing it. They believe it to be a natural cycle of the planet, and there is nothing we can do about it.

That is a possibility. However, most evidence indicates that it has been brought on by human activity, in particular, the excessive carbon released into the atmosphere through automobiles, industry, and other sources,as well as rampant deforestation, which destroys the one of the planet's largest carbon reservoirs, thus allowing previously unheard of amounts of CO2 to enter the atmosphere. In the likely event that global warming is caused by human activity, it's best to take preventative measures. If it's natural, then you're right - there's nothing we can do about it. But it makes a lot more sense to run on the assumption that it is man-made and potential save ourselves and our planet than to do nothing on the assumption that it is a natural cycle.

I'm sure humans caused the ice age, too. Oh wait, you mean that was a natural event of extreme climate change? OH WOW!

You're a special kind of stupid, aren't you?
