    I doubt it, can anybody back up their opinions with credible sources and/or reason's why they think global warming is, or isn't human caused?

    I am interested in your opinions, that's why I am posting this topic.

    Relax Des,

    This place is not renowned for it's heated Anthropogenic Global Warming debates. They die out all the time.

    My idea, the current warming is partly fiction due to the underestimated Urban Heat Island Effect, partly natural due to solar activity and enforcing natural cycles like the Pacific Decadal Cycle, the North Atlantic Occilation etc and partly anthropogenic with the main culprit probably soot and haze. Finally, on the very last spot there may be a very small signal due to increased CO2 levels. Not too much, due to saturation effects.
