There's a difference between global warming and anthropogenic global warming.
Global warming is a natural process that would happen with or without humans.

Humans play an almost insignificant role in the warming of the globe in the long term really. We are just in an interglacial period and the earth is going to warm itself up for a bit longer before the next ice age. Even natural occurrences as simple as volcanoes and sunspots change Earth's climate on a much larger scale than humans will.

That said I love all these doomsday pseudo-environmentalist attitudes that seem to be in fashion these days because, hey.. if people start being more concerned about our planet - I see that as a good thing - even if it is done for the wrong reasons ;)

few months ago it was minus 18 celcius here in holland coldest time im able to remember over here althought it was just for a few weeks :P

mabey we are speeding up the proces but as far as ive been told in school the earth was also warming up before the last icetime,..

althought, while oil is running out on earth, we have to get a new energy source
and why not choose one that isnt bad for or heating up nature to make sure ^^

The globe would warm up very quickly anyway, so I do know it's completely natural - the only role humans play is very slightly speeding it up.

It's natural, it's happened before it'll happen again. As to whether humans are contributing to it or not... who knows. Lets spend our tax payers research money on more useful things... like where does lead pencil go when it's rubbed out? :confused:

i think the cause is by forces larger than us. like the same reason the ice age happened, but we are helping to speed up the process.

its both, this question is far too complex to only have two answers. i think the best answer is that natural forces are exacerbated by human activity (this is coming from an environmental geoscience student)
