Global warming is a hoax

So is global warming actually a hoax?
This website seems to think so.

And of course we have the counter point here

Now technically, Global warming is the increase in the average measured temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century, and its projected continuation.
But is anything besides the debate actually heating up?
The EPA runs a climate change website

"On Feb. 2, 2007, the United Nations scientific panel studying climate change declared that the evidence of a warming trend is "unequivocal," and that human activity has "very likely" been the driving force in that change over the last 50 years."

ABC seems to be fairly even handed, although to me they seem to be leaning more towards myth.

The "company line" seems to be that Global Warming is indeed real.
But in the online world, the opinion seems to be fairly evenly split.
Of course both sides call the other "crazy" for not believing the way they do.
That's pretty much standard.

So as always it's up to YOU to do the research and decide.

Not a complete hoax, every ice age begins with a warming trend before the Earth plunges into a deep freeze.


CHICAGO — Contrary to the conventional wisdom of the day, the real danger facing humanity is not global warming, but more likely the coming of a new Ice Age.

What we live in now is known as an interglacial, a relatively brief period between long ice ages. Unfortunately for us, most interglacial periods last only about ten thousand years, and that is how long it has been since the last Ice Age ended.


Despite the howls of environmentalists that we are about to be destroyed by the global warming the Earth is headed for another deep freeze, there is evidence that vast, underwater volcanic warming of the earth's oceans will bring about the next ice age because as the oceans warm, evaporation increases leading to more precipitation. As the rain increasingly falls as snow, a new ice age will begin. Other scientists believe the current cycle of ice ages was triggered when the tectonic plate carrying the India subcontinent crashed into Asia. Or, other climatologists believe, there is a relationship between sunspot activity and climate change. There is no such thing as "normal" weather. The Medieval Optimum lasted from A.D. 900 to A. D. 1300; a period in which agriculture flourished and human populations increased. That period was followed in 1350 by the Little Ice Age that lasted until the middle of the Nineteenth Century. It used to be that people blamed seemingly unusual weather "on devils or demons; now we blame Big Oil and the family mini-van.
