What I find amusing about this debate is the rate at which people become so infuriated about it. I admit, I am a skeptic on climate change. I do beleive it's happening, and I do believe that man most probably has something to do with it. But I don't believe that it's really worth getting up in arms about.
The science of climate change is a relatively new science. It's only been around for, what, 50 years-ish? No way is any one going to convince me that scientists have this thing nailed. The earth has been going through warming and cooling periods for billions of years and all of a sudden we notice a pattern in the last 50 years and think we know exactly what's going on? Bull.
Being a bit of a scientific thinker myself, I can safely say that all new sciences are severely flawed. That's why once upon a time people believed that the sun revolved around the earth, or that blood-letting would cure any disease. Being a free-thinker, I know not to buy into the hype because if logic and science has taught us anything, it's that human interpretation and understanding of science is limited and greatly flawed.
