It should be common knowledge. CO2 is the most common answer I get. I just find it amusing that both sides will argue GW, when they do not this important fact.
I never said CO2 and CH4 are not responsible for GW, I more worried about the increasing levels of methane more so than CO2 since it traps heat so well.
I just feel strongly that there are much bigger fouls we are committing as a species that seem to never get mentioned.edit on 2-1-2014 by jrod because: (no reason given)

And YOU want to blame MAN and whatever he did I'm sure!!! OK this is the only thing that is relevant in this thread!!!
THE EARTH HAS NEARLY FROZEN AND WARMED UP TIME AFTER TIME OVER THE CENTURIES.....AAANNNNNNNDDDD
WWWWAAAAIIIIIITTTTT FFFFFFFOOOOORRRRRRR IIIIIITTTT!!
MAN WASN'T THERE!!!!
You do know man was around during the last ice age don't you? The height of the last one was around 20K years ago and mankind was present.
So now Al Gore is a lying thieving low life and scientists are idiots?
I never said that CO2 isn't responsible for warming. There are far bigger things that we are doing that are a more imminent threat to humanity. While we are pumping tons and tons of CO2 in the air we are also destroying forests and poisoning our waters which kills algae, the natural sinks of CO2.
The reality is we as a species are destroying our once pristine planet. Those of who care do not have the wealth and power to do anything about it. Those with the wealth and power are the ones doing the biggest damage all in the name of making more money.
Most people(at least Americans) are ignorant to anything important in the world. You would be surprised at how many think it gets cold in the winter because the Earth is further away from the sun in the winter. The education system here is horrible. I would be willing to bet that at least 75% of college graduates in the US do not know the Earth once a CO2 rich atmosphere.
More time and more research are needed - by scientists not employed by government agencies preferably.
