The fact that so many people still doubt human-induced climate change is just staggering. It's amazing how delusional millions of Americans can be...

The Arctic is "like the earth's air conditioner," said Walt Meier, research SCIENTIST for the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colo. "It's like it's losing coolant." In other words - Global Warming.

The Arctic is "like the earth's air conditioner," said Walt Meier, research SCIENTIST for the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colo. "It's like it's losing coolant." In other words - Global Warming. But what does he know, he's only a scientist.

We have 5% of the population and consume 25% of the world's resources. This has to stop. My fear is it's going to take a huge environmental disaster to finally spur America to action (like a whole major city destroyed by a hurricane or fire). The next 20-30 years are going to be very interesting...

luckily I have a job and can buy more coolant for my air conditioner, especially with the money I save by not needing to run my furnace as much.

To J_Dubya It's not that people don't believe in human induced climate change, the question is the percentage it is. Many people, a lot more educated than you, don't believe the percentage is that high. It is also a fact the Antarctic has more ice than they have had in many many years... not all waters are cooling or warming some are maintaining. The planet is living it changes on its own and has more millions of years. It is also fact that we are in the longest period of seasons this planet has ever had. The deserts of Arizona were once a tropical paradise.

To bredpath Many scientist doubt the data on the flip side to you debate... but what do they know. Even the British will not teach AL Gore's global warming in schools because so many of his scientists testified that it there isn't enough evidence to prove it!

tjjust - Percentages? You care to talk about percentages? Please tell your sources. If you want to use real math, real science, then your claims don't hold water. "The deserts of Arizona were once a tropical paradise." you simply fail to mention this was far before humans even existed on this planet and provide no sources at all. In fact, you seem to be a small island in a large ocean of scientific evidence that doesn't support your claims. And one of your claims is absolutely false when you say "It's not that people don't believe in human induced climate change". Sir/madam, there is a whole industry whose sole purpose is to muddy the scientific water, to cast doubt, and devoted to make people not believe in human induced climate change. Just listen to virtually every Republican candidate in the United States of America and then watch what Koch-funded and directed "Americans for Prosperity" does. Your statements are misleading, false, and inaccurate.
