There's no discussion to have. It's tons of information that you can find easily. There are many lectures on youtube from scientists who work on this.
I've done this before, trying to educate someone, and all I ever got were "gotcha" questions. People like you ask questions until I can't find an answer and then go "gotcha! You can't answer this about a detail, so it's ALL bullshit." They're not interested in learning. That's the difference between skeptics and deniers. Skeptics listen to the answers, deniers do not.
And if you think it's political, the science isn't. What is political is what we should do about it and libtards are sitting at the table while conservaturds cover their ears going "la la la".
BTW, the latest BS from denier guru Tony Heller is that Greenland is gaining ice. He quotes a paper but not the part where they say it's only about the surface. When you take glacier calving, Greenland is losing ice year after year.
My question wasn't a skeptical one, really. We all know the earth goes through cycles. My question is simply, why is it man made, this time? Also, if it is man made, will there be another non man made one?
It's man-made because we're pumping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. We're the trigger, so to speak.
Yes, there will be more non-man-made. The Earth has plenty of life left to do its thing without us.
So no matter what we do, the cycles will continue then. There's not real consensus about it being man made or not. One can find VERY convincing arguments on all sides of the spectrum. Subjects such as this, "big bang", etc. have been and continue too be hotly debated and many so called proven theories have been debunked, over the years, so who really knows? I do my best to treat our world with care and respect but I don't think extremism is appropriate. You're right. The earth has plenty of life in it and it is great at sustaining it's self.
See what I meant by not interested in learning? You dismissed my argument because cycles will continue. Then you go on on irrelevant generalities. There's no debate on climate change. It's only fuelled by those who stand to lose. Read or watch "Merchants of doubt".
Extremism will come whether we want it or not.
I did not dismiss your argument. I introduced another factor and then I illustrated that there is no real consensus, THEN I gave my ideas about how it all factors into my own personal life. I never said whether or not there's any debate on climate change. I did say the cause is hotly debated by many different credible people with no clear resolution.
