I believe when it comes to the debate over global warming, and its causes, be it man-made, or natural cycles, or a combination of both. Many have
already made their minds up, which if you will pardon my saying so, is quite arrogant and ignorant.
If you really want to take an analytical look into the subject and actually research the topic you'll find enough to support just about all theories
related to global warming, and if you have a particular stance or leaning, perhaps political motive, you will find and present information that
supports your argument. In the end this does little to get to the actual unbiased data. So it is a debate no one can win.
If you have an open mind, and are not subject or preconceived motivating factors, and do some actual real research... You may be surprised where the
data leads you.
Rather than try to predict an unknown future, why not just look at the trends in global temperature and weather anomalies over the last several
decades. There are many ups and downs, but the overall trend (like the stock market) is up... as in global average temperatures are increasing, and in
the last few years that upward trend seems to be accelerating. Something is causing it. Glaciers are melting, and some are already gone, many were
there for thousands of years and are now a small fraction of what they once were. Polar ice is melting at a rapid rate... Etc.
No good will come from a debate with many key players basing their arguments on preconceived notions. Critical thinking and real research are what
this topic requires, and deserves. Lets go where the data takes us, and not where someone wants us to look. The truth no matter what the cause or
ultimate effect, will be revealed at some point.
Just my thoughts.
