The argument from the 19th century still exists today, sadly.

the dialogue is not that global warming does not exist, it's that humans have no real affect on global temperatures.

"Global Warming" is the most unfortunate name, they should have called it "Climate Change"... because the average Joe doesn't understand what it is, he looks at the name and says "well, it's cold. where I am. at this particular moment."

Any self-respecting scientist will acknowledge that the change in climate is just a continuation of what the Earth has done since forever

As an aside for the global warming argument: Global warming is actually only a minor danger associated with CO2 emissions, especially considering that said emissions have only caused a 1 degree average temperature increase. A much larger issue is that nearly a third of total CO2 emissions are absorbed by our oceans, causing the oceans to become more acidic. This acidity contributes to the faster dissolution of calcium carbonate, the primary component of corals skeletons, bivalve shells, and most critically plankton shells. If this acidity continues to rise, it will severely stunt the growth of said organisms, leading to a worldwide collapse of ocean ecosystems, thus bringing about a new mass extinction which humans may not survive.

TL"DR: CO2 emissions are a huge problem, but not for the reasons most often cited.

I think I'll go with the guys with PhDs over some random troll on the internet. You want proof? How about you go read their work, because it's laid out in there.

"Climate is always changing. However, many of the observed changes noted above are beyond what can be explained by the natural variability of the climate. It is clear from extensive scientific evidence that the dominant cause of the rapid change in climate of the past half century is human-induced increases in the amount of
atmospheric greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrous oxide. The most important of these
over the long term is CO2, whose concentration in the atmosphere is rising principally as a result of fossil-fuel combustion and deforestation. While large amounts of CO2 enter and leave the atmosphere through natural processes, these human activities are increasing the total amount in the air and the oceans. Approximately half of the CO2 put into the atmosphere through human activity in the past 250 years has been taken up by the ocean and terrestrial biosphere, with the
other half remaining in the atmosphere. Since long-term measurements began in the 1950s, the atmospheric CO2 concentration has been increasing at a rate
much faster than at any time in the last 800,000 years. Having been introduced into the atmosphere it will take a thousand years for the majority of the added atmospheric CO2 to be removed by natural processes, and some will remain for thousands of subsequent years. "

Wow, the blatant hate on Creationists is strong on this page. "You believe a higher power started the universe and not expansion?! You are among the dumbest of humans". Ignorance on every side.
