Well, even though this argument has been brought up 879 times (or so it would seem) here on ATS, I guess I'll bite (I'm kind of bored right now).
I WAS a skeptic. Everything I was seeing was pointing AWAY from Global Warming. I was really sold on the fact that it WAS a purely natural
But...then I found this: www.abovetopsecret.com...
This is a report (which 60 Minutes actually covered last night) that talks about a White House lawyer changing the climate change reports to make it
sound unreal. Then over 100 scientists came forward with the same accusations.
Now, watching some of these scientists talk about climate change and how they can tell how fast the Earth is warming up really helped me see that the
people who don't believe in Global Warming, aren't really paying any attention to the strange fact that the Earth is warming up at a RECORD rate.
It's not just following it's normal cycle. It's warming at a RECORD rate. The scientists on 60 Minutes were talking about how they can tell this
over the past 850,000 years by studying ice around the North Pole.
The facts are:
1) The White House covered up reports by scientists and deciding which scientists get the public eye.
2) The planet is warming at a RECORD speed.
3) Global Warming can be easily explained in regards to CO2 emissions.
These 3 things have persuaded me that it's real.
