@5cats:
He answered it. He pointed out that in the past CO2 has caused temps to amplify. Ergo, we're putting out more CO2, and temps will get higher (which they are).

@randomxnp:
I know the debate better than most people - and the video was spot on and based in facts.

Read the youtube description. Citations were provided.

Where's yours?

I like how there is a debate here.

Because it's not really a debate, and that's what makes it so funny. It's pretty much people going, "THE SUN ISN'T REAL." And then the rest of them look up into the sky and go, "No, pretty sure it's there." And everyone goes back to their day.

Only person bothered by this is the guy claiming hoax. Everybody else is on the same page. It's as plain as day.

Now I see your problem. You have no idea what sceptics actually argue. This video does not address most of the sceptics' arguments. It does address some straw men, and it addresses a few arguments but misses the point. He got one point right and on target in the while video, although there he misses the more important point and he is really only hitting a side issue.

They are not refuted. It is a shame, because the Green brothers are usually so good, but Hank gets a lot wrong here (and yes, I do probably know more about the Earth and climate than he does) and in other cases he misses the point, and attacks a straw man.

I doubt OldOllie disputes the planet is warming. Few informed people do. That is not the hoax. The hoax is that we cause it by releasing a minor greenhouse gas in relatively small quantities (relative that is to the natural flux).

Answer #1 wasn't an answer: he changed the subject.

How's that for a good start?

Global Temps have risen and fallen since the dawn of time: Humans Did It ALL! Those naughty, CO2 emitting cavemen...

@OldOllie:
You should accept global warming because of the evidence behind it. It's not some 'leftist' conspiracy, McCarthy.

Anyone else think that this guy IS or is heavily inspired by the "Ask a ninja" guy. His mannerisms are the same

If this guy thinks I'm going to buy into the global warming hoax because I should give a loose dry f*** about HIM, he's going to be sorely disappointed.

BTW, in case you haven't noticed, the UN is nothing more than a bunch of leftist dictators who want to boss us around and take our stuff.

OK - someone has to say it - that guys voice annoys the crap out of me. If Morgan Freeman narrated this, it would instantly gain respect.

Even better - Samuel L. Jackson.

Where are the conservatives countering all this scientific data with their own personal opinions?

That pretty much sums it up. The UN stating that they are 95% certain that global warming is caused by humans really should shut most people up.

Wow. I have new respect for this guy. His answers were *spot* on and he managed to touch on all the major skeptic arguments in under four minutes.

There's more scientific accuracy in his four minutes than you'll get from a decade of watching Fox News or reading *The Daily Mail*.

Good job, Mr. Fast-Talking Glasses Guy! =^.^=
