Is Global Warming Happening?

Global Warming Hoax

That in itself is not headline news. The earth has been gradually warming over the past 15,000 years as part of the earth's natural cycle emerging from the last ice age.

As we'll explain later, most serious scientists who are debating the climate issue agree on most aspects of climate change. The debate is down to the causes of climate change, and what the correct action is to resolve the problem.

Incidentally, just because the world is warming up, it does not mean that all areas of the world are warming up at the same time: indeed, some parts of the world are actually cooling down, but the Global Mean Surface Temperature is rising.
