I say "proof" because nothing can ever be proved as fact in science (nothing have be proved but everything can be disproved).edit: spelling
Quote from: Will on July 11, 2007, 05:23:47 pmthe data from ice cores seems to indicate that we are in the warmed time in five and a half million years by a small amount but an amount large enough to not correspond with the rest.

Second no the earth does go though cycles of heating and warms and there are variations in these (ice ages, really warm periods, etc) But ours is continuing to climb much higher than the rest. From what I've seen is seems that the rate of warming really started to increase around the time of the industrial revolution. By the amount of oil we burn its really not that surprising that we would have at least a noticeable effect. That being said we have became much more efficient as of late and what we are feeling could be that of fifty years ago.edit: I'm along with O_B on this one so far I have looked at everything you have shown and given it thought.
Quote from: Will on July 11, 2007, 06:03:38 pmwell global warming does come from the sun but its more of a thing about how the earth lose heat. Green house gases are a wonderful thing, they allow life to exist and keep the earth form being an ice ball but too much of a good thing can be bad in our case it the build of of these gases that are trapping the heat from the sun and thats whats warming us up.

This is otherwise known as balance...something our political system has drifted ashore from.What does that have to do with what I said? Capitalism is common sense.
