Check it out
If a UN panel said the sky was blue, I'd go out and check.

I'd like to see a lot more science and a lot less dogma on this issue. There's a lot we don't know about this, especially it's causes and what, if any, effect mankind has had. Science must be open to hard questions, opposing opinions and 'trial by fire' for every statement it makes. If you're being discouraged from questioning something, it's not science any more.

Go work as a scientist, then - they're far less ignorant than you
The ignorance of posters to this site is truly amazing. The last
time the issue of global warming was raised here, it was
inundated with smart-ass comments by boys who think they're
far too clever and well-informed to listen to the conclusions of
scientists. The UN's report was the result of long deliberations
on the part of 2,500 scientists over evidence they have been
collecting for many years and decades now. Coming to a verdict
on the mounting evidence of man-made climate change isn't
dogma, any more than concluding that the fossil record just
about proves the theory of evolution - it's a function of science
too. Scientists continue with their research and the vast majority
of them have decided the evidence for man-made causes far
outweighs any other. The report didn't conclude it was
absolutely proven, just about a 90% likelihood. Why should they
be more equivocal than that: to pander to semi-educated,
conceited *****-footers like you?
