By Mark Tracey It’s a hoax in the sense that climate changes are all attributed to human activity, when history, going back millennia, prove otherwise.

By Andrew Herzman Nobody said "all". But 80% at least.

By Mark Tracey Dinosaurs lived in what is now Montana, and where I live was cornered with a mile thick layer of ice 100,000 years ago. Climates change, deal with it.

By Andrew Herzman Venus had runaway global warming...and there is ZERO life there now.

By Mark Tracey Venus is 13,000,000,000 miles closer to the sun, you think that might make it a little hotter?

By Andrew Herzman Venus is still in the "Goldilocks Zone" and is thought to have had liquid water and even life on it at one time.

Now it's even hotter than Mercury..which is the closest planet to the Sun.

By Mark Tracey There is no evidence that there was ever life on Venus, that is pure speculation. Back to earth, we are currently at the peak of an interglacial period in the earths Ice Age cycle and perhaps cooling. Greenland was not named that for the ice and snow now found there.

Check the graph of the cycles of glaciation.

By Andrew Herzman Check the graph on global temperature since humans have been churning out CO2 into the atmosphere.

By Mark Tracey You need a longer term view, check out the past 100,000 years.

By Andrew Herzman Yeah? CO2 levels have never been this high.
Picture?type=square
By Mark Tracey That does not change the climate history.
Most of the CO2 comes from the countries exempted from the Paris Climate accorords, such as India and China while the US levels of CO2 production rate has fallen for years.

By Andrew Herzman Thanks for agreeing with me. Most CO2 comes from HUMANS.
