    Using SJ as a slur. Nice.

    How did I attack you? If I attacked you, you attacked me by saying I should think for myself and by saying I did something very SJ like. I wouldn't really call that much of an attack though. But sure, after you explained somewhat better your position, it seems like I was a little bit mislead by "basically, we don't know shit", because I thought that meant you meant we cannot really say anything about the likelihood of different scenarios, but above you stated that global warming probably is true. Do you really think I was out of line?
    here's what i considered an attack:

    yes, i think that's definitely out of line. you shouldn't be applying stereotypes to individuals.

    but, i'll admit, i attacked you back, and that was out of line as well. i'm sorry, i shouldn't have responded that way.

    But the thing is that we then we know something. We know temperatures are rising because of human-made global warming. It is true we cannot be absolutely certain how much, because we haven't figured out all of the details of the system, but we can still make predictions on the data we have, say something about the likelihood of such and such happening, and that’s what we have to act upon. Again, just because our knowledge is not perfect, doesn't mean we should ignore it, we must act upon what is probable. And true the weather system is very complicated, but still aren't there weather forecasts on television that are pretty accurate? This shows that we at least know a bit about the weather.
    i guess my point is that it's totally possible it has an insignificant effect. i certainly don't think it's as big a deal as it's made out to be. the avg. temp and the rate of increase are well within normal range based on the graph i've seen.

    of course, it may not stay that way. it may be completely fucked and out of control. i'm just saying we don't really know.

    "we don't know shit" was an exaggeration. but i really don't think we know much.

    plus, if it gets bad enough, they'll be more pressure on everyone to do something. also, the earth has been through MUCH MUCH MUCH worse.

    Is it so hard to believe that it's just natural meteorological events? I mean if we can blame ourselves, why can't we blame the earth? Damn gravity kept the carbon atoms in the atmosphere. Should have let them go.

    Why do we have to be responsible for everything?

    Humans are convinced that they're going to be the demise of the entire planet.

    Really, it wasn't meant as an attack on you, but as a slight attack on typical American views on this subject. (The you reference I made was meant in the plural sense, and did not apply to you personally.) Of course all Americans do not have these views, and I see positive change, but still there is a lot of paranoid and unfounded scepticism. I see some of it in you, but only a hint. I think you are too sceptical of how much we know and can understand.

    ah, well. it was misleading to include that in a response to me.

    glad we cleared it up.

    I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me how the Co2 goes about trapping the light in. Seems to me that if it keeps it in, it would keep it out.

    But I don't know. I've asked this question on a few other forums, asked literally dozens, maybe even over a hundred people, HOW THE FUCK IT DOES IT, and I get nothing but evasion.

    If no one gives me a proven answer to that I'm gonna ask Ivy to close the thread. It's already getting retarded.

    we're not adding CO2 from outside the atmosphere. we're changing O2 into it inside of our atmosphere.

    ...

    I know dude.

    I'll restate my question so there's no confusion.

    By what chemical property does Co2 gas become a prism by which light can go in, but not out?

    Explain that to me.
