CO2 is probably the biggest greenhouse gas, but there are others like methane (cows are a big producers of methane... when they fart :P I think most if not all mammals including humans produce some methane when they fart but apparently cows are the main one)Originally Posted by [b
you keep saying you're not conservative and blah blah but you sure love bashing liberals and democrats. what's more, you have nothing to back up your wild claims. You also complain about this being political and all that crap but it is YOU who is turning this political. Is life all about politics to you? I bet life is just one huge conspiracy from scientists and everyone who doesn't agree with you against poor innocent people like you who are actually smarter but have no way of proving that and instead resort to graphs that are only meant to make a point by being very inaccurate, present many arguments that just sound good but fall under close scrutiny, and also use outdated information. I'd say conservatives and republicans are the gullible ones that keeps its base on fear and ignorance, but that's another thread.Originally Posted by [b

ok, here's the deal let me sum it up. CO2 traps heat. Humans have been dumping CO2 and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere since the industrial revolution. Through many methods of measuring past temperatures and all of them agreeing, scientists determined that at about the same time of the industrial revolution, the global temperature shot up and has been rising as CO2 rises. (oh... about satellites... correct me if i'm wrong... and I don't doubt I am... but what about clouds? don't they interfere?). Now satellites and boueys/etc have confirmed that there is more heat being absorbed by the earth than it is being released. The VAST majority of scientists think global warming is happening and that it is being caused by humans and could become a huge problem. The scientists that disagree usually work for oil companies.
