“With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it,” said James M. Inhofe a member of the U.S. Senate. Could this be the true? Many facts behind the controversial issue of global warming prove this statement to correct. Global warming is not caused by human activities. Global warming cannot be completely caused by human’s emission of greenhouse gasses.” In the last 1.6 million years there have been 63 alternations between warm and cold climates, and no indication that any of them were caused by changes in carbon dioxide levels” (Contoski). Studies show that over millions of years weather patterns on Earth are always changing. The Earth has been though many spells of cooling like the ice age and also warming. Currently the temperature pattern shows the Earth is actually cooling, not warming “global cooling has been evident for more than a single year. Global temperature has declined since 1998” (Contoski). How can humans cause global “warming” if the Earth is not warming? Other studies show that the greenhouse gas problem is naturally taken care of by the carbon absorbing plants and trees.” Earth’s oceans, forests and other ecosystems continue to soak up about half the carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere by human activities, even as those emissions have increased” (Contoski). Therefore, no matter how much gas we create the environment has a system to keep them under control.” Five hundred million years ago, the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was 15–20 times what it is today” (Contoski). Another fact to disprove the theory of global warming is the ice sheets. Though, the ice sheets in the Arctic are melting away the ice sheets in the Antarctic in response are growing.” It's most noticeable in September, when northern ice is at its lowest and southern ice at its highest....
