A heating of the earth caused by people who are simply too hot.
Paul is so hot, he must be the cause for global warming.

A term which has been the subject of much heated debate. It is either used to describe consequential escalating global temperatures or the tree huggers' fear weapon to fuel the "Go Green" movement.

Go read another def if you're looking for more of a bais.
Whether global warming is just hype or not, it has made us more aware of the signifiacant impact we have on our planet. That HAS to count for something good.

the warmings of the globe
holy shit! global warming has warmed the globe 1 degree higher in the last 100 years!!!! lets panic!!!

A natural system, well tweaked out by the Earth, that human beings may (or may not) be throwing out of balance. Despite the fact that it is becoming popular to deribe people who adhere to theories about Global Warming that hold that humans have begun to have a detrimental influence on this as "politicaly correct, hypocritical, faux-hippies who just want to feel good about themselves," doing so only helps further polarize both sides of the issue, driving them away from finding a compormise satisfactory to both environmental groups and business interests (though that is not to say that GW supporters do not do the same thing just as often i.e. "Big Oil Fascists," etc.})
Global Warming- If we can't fucking talk about with out calling each other names, it'll never get to the point where people will be willing to stop talking about it (either because it has been disproven, or because people have begun to take the steps to fight it.)

In simple terms, the rising mean surface temperature of Earth. There is a scientific consensus that {yes} global warming is occurring. In fact the mean surface temp. has risen a staggering 0.5 C in the past 180 years.

This is what we know as fact, however there are numerous different ideologies associated with what is making global warming. {Side note: the earth has been warming and cooling since its creation, this global warming/cooling is no new climate terminology to the planet}

First Theory: GHG(Green House Gasses) are creating trapped heat through infra-red radiation.{Further explanation is needed to fully understand GHG Warming please go look it up} Also that from these GHG's, CO2(Carbon Dioxide) is the only one that makes a considerable difference{even over water vapor which makes up 1-4% of the atmosphere while CO2 is in the 300PPM quantity}.

Second Theory: Solar sun spots are creating an increase in solar activity and solar radiation{UV}. The sun has been putting out more sun spots thus creating more solar radiation making the earth warming.

These are the two most popular theories today, although 85% of people are blindly accepting the first one. Please don't take other peoples view on global warming, visit websites(Both for human and non-human causes) and decide for yourself, learn the science behind it before committing to a side.

Some interesting facts, due to everyone looking up to Al Gore{Who recently is under review to get his Oscar taken away due to some false information in his documentary}. The graphs shown in "An Inconvenient Truth" between a correlation of CO2 and Temp over thousands of years when both are matched up linearly temperature leads CO2 hundreds of years ahead.
Popular to contrary believe the Global Warming debate is not over.

Global warming is the natural process by which the average yearly temperature of the earth gradually raises. Yes, humans do affect global warming, but barely. The problem is that environmentalists use crappy equipment (home thermometers, for example, rather than the far far more precise weather balloons used by legit scientists), and think we have a huge effect on global warming. Most environmentalists don't really have or use very accurate equipment or methods, so they come up with skewed ideas.

This is basically because no one or two people know exactly how to research all of the details needed to study the environment, you need large groups of scientists that study in many different fields to truely record accurate information.

There are some environmentalists that just go around and record their own inaccurate information, and go around generalizing and extrapolating ideas based on false information. The results they usually come up with are that humans have a large effect on global warming. Even worse, many of them don't even do studies, they just accept the false studies of others, which leads to the illusion that it has a lot of support by studies. The theory that humans have a large effect on global warming is so widely accepted because many people disregard hard facts for a skewed concept because it attracts attention when someone tells you that we are destroying our world; its another part of human nature that doesn't fit in well with the modern world (like our indulgence in eating).

There are other environmentalists (yes, real, legitimate environmentalists not politicians, or anyone who wants to sabotage the environmentalists, I'm getting sick of these stupid conspiracy theories) that study the environment using the other method mentioned above that uses many scientists that specialize in many fields of study to accurately record information. They find that humans do have an effect, but a very VERY miniscule one, on global warming.

The following is a letter that I wrote to an environmentalist foundation that believes humans have a large effect on global warming. Of everything they have publish, I found nothing but unfounded information; none of it was backed up by any hard facts, and if they ever used "facts" they were rarely used and they were very skewed because of flawed measurements. All of the data and information that I said in my letter is based 100% on studies done by the legitimate environmentalists that use scientists that specialize in many fields to record accurate information.

(the quote at the beginning is from their website)

“Dear (environmentalist foundation),

‘Global warming isn’t opinion. Its a scientific reality. The science tells us that human activity has made enormous impacts to our planet that affect our well-being and even our survival as a species.’

That is absolutely right! The only problem is... WHAT ARE YOUR SCIENTIFIC FACTS?!?!? Yes, you say that we can cut down by this that and the other and reduce our input towards global warming, but have you actually any idea how much humans affect global warming? Here’s the real facts, not just vague statements saying that we affect global warming "a lot." :

Of the 186 Billion tons of Carbon Dioxide let out into the atmosphere every year, 6 Billion tons come from humans, A meager 3.2%

In the past 20 years, we have been in a COOLING trend... yes of course, it is short term, and we are in an overall warming trend, but doesn't that go to show you that if humans have greatly increased our affect on global warming in those past 20 years, yet we still are cooling, that we have essentially no effect?

The fact is that humans have actually less than .3% an effect on the overall global warming, that’s 3/1000!

Now, humans do have an overwhelmingly small effect on global warming, but the fact of the matter is, that if effect that we have on global warming was isolated and all of the other natural effects disappeared, then one millennium from now, the earth will be as warm as it would be in three years if there was still natural influence. And incase you don’t understand that, it basically says it takes human influence 1000 years to warm the earth as much as the earth naturally warms in three years.

I don't think its worth asking the government for TRILLIONS (that is what they are asking for now incase you haven't realized) of dollars to have a miniscule effect on something that essentially isn't even affecting global warming. And also, most of our very small effect on global warming will still be there even if we do spend that money.

Sincerely,
Drew Nutter”
As one of those non-legit environmentalists would say, "Oh look, the earth is getting warmer! I think humans effect it. OH CRAP! GUESS WHAT! I can blame it on the politicians to make my political party look better! Let's go exploit false scientific ideas and spend oodles of money, just so we can get MY political party leaders in office!"

Thats not their only motive, some actually want to help but aren't good at what they do, but there are a good number of them that actually think that.

Just incase you forgot what I was defining cuz my definition is so long, it was Global Warming.
