Troll BS: US Politics and Global Warming (172* d) RE: BS: US Politics and Global Warming 24 Jan 06

Can someone explain to me how "a global temperature increase of 0.4 degree Fahrenheit, per decade, for the last 30 years." (Ebbie, 13 Aug. 05), is caused by present-day policies.

It may be being exacerbated by what's going on in the world right now but it certainly didn't start last week. While I can agree that the actions of man have had some adverse affect on the climate, I cannot agree that man, and the US in particular, is wholly at fault.

There have been studies that point to sun spots, it was just reported that plants give off a lot of methane, and the beat goes on.

On the other hand, there are those who ascribe the whole thing to Bush, the Republicans, Industry (but not in third world countries), Big Oil, America, and the Human Race.

No one has all the answers, with the possible exception of those who crusade for one single cause, with one single group at fault.
