#38: Actually, it does. I can see the point of the "skeptics". According to several posters on this thread, they argue that the CO2 levels are at their highest levels since humans have come on to the scene but, didn't deny the fact that the levels were at times before human influence, much higher. The point I'm trying to make is this, if the earth was able to compensate for very large swings in co2 levels before humans, why is it now the consenses that the earth can no longer adjust to this and compensate? I do believe the climate is changing and that indeed man is helping to contribute to it. But, I believe the planet is completely capable to compensate for this. Although, it may be catastrophic for a lot of humans to ignore the coming changes. Whether or not man can't stop this I am uncertain but, I believe if through science, we can help mitigate the damage, we should listen to them and hear what they are saying.
