Welcome to the forum Shane. Let me try to explain it a bit shortly.

Global warming is real. It has been proven over and over again by thousands of scientists. Global warming is an fact and it has been created by us humans and is not a "Natural Cycle" or made by "solar patterns". This is the latest researh on this area: 'No Sun link' to climate change: Sun's output has declined but Earth temperatures have risen. Don't believe the few who says that global warming is a lie and nothing we can do anything about. They are just a bunch of selfish idiots that are probably paid by an oil or gas company.

Global warming doesn't just mean that the planet will get hotter. Some countries will expereince severe rains and storms. We can already see this happening. Take Great Britain as an example. They have experienced massive rain and floods. And all this while the southern countires in Europe have experienced massive droughts.

Global warming is basically an increase in global temperatures. Global temperatures is not like the temperature outside your house. One degree increase in global temperatures can mean catastrophe.

Did you know that we have less than 8 years on us to stop our useage of fossil fuels and reduce our emmissions with around 90% worldwide or the global temperatures will rise above 2 degrees and there will be no turning back. If we don't stop the temperatures to rise above 2 degrees we will reach 6 degrees around year 2100 and we will all be dead.

An 6 degree increase in global temperatures maybe doesn't sound much but globally its HUGE! An 6 degree increase means that all glaciers, north pole etc will melt. Floods, droughts and fireballs will rain from the sky. At an 6 degree increase life on this planet will almost be impossible.

Please tell me if you have any more specific question! Oh and sorry for my bad english. :rolleyes:

Thousands of scientists has already proven several times that global warming is real and something that we humans have a major part in.

The scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify nations taking prompt action.

Joint statement by 11 national science academies to world leaders

Temperature change 1765-2100: Graph excerpted from the IPCC's Third Assessment Report showing past and predicted changes to global temperature.

- Certain gasses, such as carbon dioxide, in the atmosphere create a "greenhouse effect", trapping heat and keeping the Earth warm enough to sustain life as we know it.

- Burning fossil fuels (coal, oil, etc.) releases more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Although not the most potent greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide is the most significant in terms of human effects because of the large quantities emitted.

- Carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere are now the highest in 150,000 years.

- The 1990's was most likely the warmest decade in history, and 1998 the warmest year.

- A certain amount of additional warming - about 1.3º Celsius (2.3º Fahrenheit) compared to pre-industrial levels - is probably inevitable because of emissions so far. Limiting warming to under 2° Celsius (3.6°F) is considered vital to preventing the worst effects of climate change.

- If our greenhouse gas emissions are not brought under control, the speed of climate change over the next hundred years will be faster than anything known since before the dawn of civilization.

- There is a very real possibility that climate feedback mechanisms will result in a sudden and irreversible climate shift. No one knows how much global warming it would take to trigger such a "doomsday scenario".

If you are still one of those stubborn people who just won’t accept the fact that climate change is real and something that we must act fast to stop you should watch this video. This guy has an argument that I think even you people should find reasonable.

Here comes more information about the weather effects:

Computer models of how our world will react to climate change have long predicted extreme and shifting weather patterns. More heavy rains in some areas, crippling drought in others. A new study, published this week in the journal Nature, compared recorded precipitation to predicted precipitation - and confirmed we're changing our weather.
