Is mankind really a factor in global warming?

Us Humans give ourselves too much credit. We are a species on this earth. We are a couple of energy trading organisms with the only purpose of exchanging energy in a food chain called life.
Now when people start putting monetary fines and fees into the picture, then yes. It is all Human made and it is our fault and WE WILL PAY!

Well the earth is warming, there's not really any debate about that.
Tends to happen when you are coming slowly out of an ice-age, which we are.
to think that us puny humans could actually ever do anything that would hurt the Earth is rather pathetic

I think the whole debate has been a bad one and misrepresented from the start. Some people...see ways to get exceptionally wealthy off crap like Carbon exchanges. Which actually do little do stop anything, but distribute it all on paper at high costs had by all and high profits made by few.
Does man cause global warming? Well....I wonder if a much better question wouldn't be to ask...is man royally screwing up the planet by mass pollution of the air, food and water? Whether that's changing the temps or not, is rather secondary I think. The answer is yes on the pollution by almost any measure.
