Alarmingly, there are still intelligent people denying the influence man has in increasing global temperatures. From a layman’s perspective, the science does not seem complicated. Carbon Dioxide traps heat, man is pumping lots of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere, therefore man is at least partly responsible for heating up the planet. Whenever there is a huge amount of data on a phenomenon though, there are more and more opportunities to distract attention from the overall picture. Check the video out below of a sophisticated argument to obscure the issue, then read an excellent rebuttal to those who continue to deny the greatest threat to our planet.
