@geckohed: (Serious answer:) Yes! As @chicgojay said: the Earth does not care! No one or nothing can "save it" because it will do whatever it does and we humans cannot stop it! For a billion years or more it has gotten warmer & colder WITHOUT a single human to blame for it.

(Silly answer:) Darn rights! We started melting the ice 21,000 years ago and DAG NABBIT we're going to finish the job!

@5cats
Mother Nature cares very little about what 'mere humans' do. WE are a tiny part of the BIG system.
The Sun is the #1 driver of Global Temperature. More than ALL Earthly factors combined...

21,000 Years ago:

>Trog Caveman: Ugh! Fire good! Burn stuff keep Trog warm! Cook food! Scare away nasty-bad monsters! Ugh!
>Al Gore Caveman: But seriously Trog, all that burning will lead to increased CO2 and Anthropomorphic Global Warming! Just look at this hockey stick graph! Look at my Nobel Peace Prize!
>TC: What means... CO2?
>AGC: The science is settled! We MUST stop all use of fire or the Vast Ice Sheets will MELT! In less than 1,000 years they could vanish! Entirely because of humans! There's no other explanation possible!
>TC: Ugh!
**clubs Al Gore over the head**
>TC: Dumbass...

FP - Credit where credit is due. He didn't bring it up, but you did. I'm sure he was going to say it soon enough anyways, but at least it wasn't thrown right in the title.

@turdy: Thanks dude! You are correct: I avoided ANY mention of AGW in the title because the facts do all the talking for me!
@FoolsPrussia: No, it does NOT matter what the artist thinks: these are anti-AGW facts, not opinions.

Only 21,000 years ago there were LITERALLY MILES of ice covering the northern parts of the Earth. Imagine if cavemen had prevented "global warming" back then? Yeah, the ice would still be there, right?
WRRRONG!

The Earth does not care. That's (one of) my problem with the enviros. At least have the balls to say that we are attempting to conquer Earth and arrest any changes that are not beneficial to the humans. There is no "Save the Earth".

@ Ollie:

...all those cavemen riding their sport-utility mastodons (which ran on pre-fossilized fossil fuels)...

That was awesome. We may disagree on climate change, but that was a really clever comment and it made me laugh.

The reason it melted was all those cavemen riding their sport-utility mastodons (which ran on pre-fossilized fossil fuels) and refusing to switch to compact fluorescent fire.

@turdburglar: He did make a comment about global warming. It's in the subtext of his comment, if you know him.

Very surprised that 5cats didn't ruin a interesting post by making a dumb comment about global warming.

Still didn't stop others from arguing about it though.

Global Warming man made or not is real. Time to get over it. I think we do play a part in it. How big of a part who really knows at this point?

Here is what we do know, the sun will get hotter, it's inevitable, that will lead to climbing temperatures, whatever we add to our atmosphere will increase warming. If we take away trees and grass for concrete we'll increase Global warming effect. Whatever it's not even worth arguing anymore.

Can't believe people want to play chicken with humanities future.

I like the part where you took his cartoon and warped it into some anti-AGW argument.

Instead, you can see that what he thinks about AGW doesn't really line up with your interpretation:

Gosh, stoopid polluting human beings should have been more green to prevent global warming back then.
