As citizens of Earth, we have already been told and have proof that global warming is a very real threat to our planet’s future. However, a team of international scientists have recently determined that global warming is in fact slowing down and isn’t happening as quickly as initially anticipated. This slowing of warming is a puzzle to the scientists, though, especially considering the rise in greenhouse gases thanks to the growth of industry in China.

Wow, this person must be really old? Like billions of years old?

Scientists are puzzled that their theories have been wrong, but politicians still want your money to combat climate change.

Forget that - they want your money; any excuse will do.

Going to have to take both Pros and cons on the subject with a grain of salt.

I do see severe weather shifts over the last decade with conditions happening on a greater scale than ever happened before.

Too bad so many flat earth people, like the one posting just before you, don't like the facts van_halen.

Especially the no co2, no plant life, no oxygen fact.

There is a website somewhere with talking points that blames everything no matter what it is on global warming. Not worth searching for.

Global warming is pure theory. Someone tell me how to prove that any change in the earth's climate is due to interference by man. It cannot be done. Lots of circumstantial evidence add up to pure theory. If the theory is correct, which is impossible to prove, the entire world's population must work together to improve the situation. Without complete global cooperation, effort by Americans is a joke not that would make a difference anyway given natural changes.

Thanks "Van_Halen" for the info. I agree with you about the earth actually getting cooler.
I believe some of the changes are just normal changes that the scientist are using as fact for global warming.

Do your own homework on this first.
I just saw the NOVA "Earth from Space" Nova documentary combining 26 satellites infrared data on temps and currents. If you can sit through 2 hours of data, you will be shocked. This was just released 60 days ago and includes Europe, Canada, Australia and the UK scientific communities.

The ice caps are NOT melting. In fact all but three Glaciers added ice over the last 5 year. There was so much ice last year in the Arctic that people almost froze and starved to death because ships couldn't bring in supplies. The stories where kept out of the main stream media because it goes against the "Sky is Falling" Global Warming LIE! The only thing that made the news was all the excess record snow Alaska had last year because that was a weather story and din't go against the Big Lie Climate Change Liars.

One of the most important steps of the scientific process is observing the data and letting the results determine whether your theory is correct. The problem is that many global alarmists have been "massaging" data to suit their opinion. Yet, they're the ones who cry that critics of the global warming *theory* are un-scientific.

FACT: The earth has been getting cooler for the last 12 years and will continue to do so no matter what man does while the Sun is leading up to the next Grand Solar Minimum IE a year or two without any Summer. And because of Obama forcing energy prices up when they don't have to be as high as they are, many many people are going to die during the next Grand Solar Minimum because they are not going to be able to afford to keep warm. During the last Grand Solar Minimum, people didn't have huge homes that were completely dependent on Electricity or Heating Oil to keep them heated. The main heat source was a wood or coal fire in the chimney.

What I don't understand is why the idiots that believe in Global Warming can't use simple math and some good old common sense. They say we keep making excess CO2 and its causing Climate Change, if this were remotely true, you would be having trouble breathing. The fact is that no matter how much CO2 is produced the oceans and plants use ALL of it. The proof of this is that the total CO2 in the Atmosphere has been at 0.039 for the last 5000 years (that's less then even one half or one percent). Just exactly how could it be increasing and causing Climate Change if the TOTAL amount in the Atmosphere hasn't changed or even inched up to a half of one percent in all these years there was supposedly all this excess CO2? I'll answer that, IT CAN'T and doesn't because the oceans and plants can process 1000 times the amount man could EVER make. The proof, Termites produce and release more CO2 every year then man has made in the last 200 years. Termites don't sleep, they eat wood 24/7 until they die and are replaced by another Termite eating wood 24/7.... CO2 is not a Greenhouse Gas and never will be unless we kill the Oceans and all plant life. And if that happens, the amount of CO2 will no longer matter because there will be nothing making Oxygen and man will no longer exist.
So again, if CO2 is a greenhouse gas, how come it NEVER increases and why are we all not having trouble breathing? Again, I'll tell you why, because Nitrogen, Oxygen, and Argon make up 99.964% of the ATMOSPHERE! As long as there are live Oceans and Plants, it is impossible for CO2 to get out of control or increase even to 0.050 percent of the Atmosphere.
These are FACTS, simple Mathematics, and good old common sense if one only stops to think about the lies the Climate Change Liars are telling over and over. Its so simple to prove their base premise is false. If CO2 were a problem, they would eradicate ALL termites and would not be allowing farmers in Europe to release CO2 over there crops at night at a 25% above normal levels!

Slowing down is accurate but doesn't tell the whole story. The part where it stops at the end. According to scientists there hasn't been any warming since 1998. Even Michael Mann and Kevin "null hypothesis" Trenberth have verified it("The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't").

I can understand the Emperor's new clothes arguments. After all no global warming, no more money being thrown at the "problem" no questions asked and the controlling agenda goes away. So keep up the scare mongering for the low information crowd.

simple science, as gasoline prices stay stuck at $4.00 a gallon,less demand for such a product ,reduces carbon foot print,therefore global warming is slowing down,its not rocket science, guys ,its common sense

Worth repeating: Warming is slowing down, but not stopping.

"In other words, global warming is still happening and will breach the 2 degree Celsius goal at some point. Action is still needed to battle rising greenhouse gas emissions. So just in case, you might still want to order that boat sofa to save you when the polar ice caps begin to melt."

Too funny. It's not a puzzle to the other scientists who have been saying there is no man-made warming but who's voices have been stifled as not being "politically correct".

It'd be nice to see an actual independent analysis of global warming. On both sides there seems to be a lot of money at stake. That leads to biased reports.
