The polar Ice caps are re freezing at the coasts, the earth's temperature has gone down in the last 5 years so I don't buy it

Thats why its labeled as "climate change", not global warming.

And the earth goes through cycles, it has been like that for as long as it has sustained a livable environment...climate change is natural and IS happening.

I read an article a while ago that the temperatures on other planets in our solar system are rising as well.
That would mean the climate change is a natural event. As all the other climate changes have been since the beginning of this Earth.
Although I think the way we have been living for the last 200 years at least haven't been in the climate, or the planets best interest.

Couldn't there exit both though? For example let's say the temperature has been rising over the past 50 years, however during the past 5 years or so we entered a natural cool age due to various things like solar flares, etc.

The more people in a room, the hotter said room is. I am no expert on the atmosphere, so I have no idea whether or not it retains the heat given off by humans. BUT, if it does, there is a form of global warming happening as a result of human beings and our excessive ways.

It is also a known fact the earth goes through cycles in regards to climate. I would guess it has to do with both global warming and the climate cycles.

The 10 key planet-wide indicators of a warming climate identified by the report are:

-- Higher temperatures over land

-- Higher temperatures over oceans

-- Higher ocean heat content

-- Higher near-surface air temperatures (temperatures in the troposphere, where Earth's weather occurs)

-- Higher humidity

-- Higher sea surface temperatures

-- Higher sea levels

-- Less sea ice

-- Less snow cover

-- Shrinking glaciers

The seven indicators expected to rise in a warming world rose over the last decade, the report said; the three indicators expected to decline did so over that same period.
