    With U.S. president Donald Trump pulling America out of the Paris climate change deal, I want to know what my fellow tempers thought of his decision and climate change in general. Personally I'm a bit of a skeptic, especially with scientists saying there would be an ice age in the 70s and the fact that science really doesn't always follow 100% proven facts, but instead use something like evolution which arguably is nothing more than a religion.

    I didn't vote as neither of your options really apply to me. I'm in the middle yes climax change is a real thing however I'm skeptical on how much us humans have had an affect on it and how much we really can do about it. Sure scientist say a lot of things but they can also be wrong and I'm not convinced of the evidence provided.

    The problem is that if it is real, you'll get convinced once it's to late :P

    Global warming is real, it's called summer and it happens every year.

    We should check statistics before and after the change. This way we'll know if the U.S was actually taking action on the problem.

    I'll add an option for your opinion to the poll as I know plenty of others have the same opinion.

    I believe in climax change. It's just I'm not convinced how much damage we have done or if there is anything we can do about it.

    I fully agree with the current scientific consensus regarding climate change but I am against actions to legally limit emissions since I do not like the idea of the government stepping in...

    Is the new option good? Or should I should I say it's being caused more by natural causes than humans?

    Science is, by definition, never 100% sure and any theory may be trumped by a newer one: a great example is Newton's dynamics (ie "if it moves at a steady 10 meters per second, it will have moved 20 meters after 2 seconds") which are still sufficiently accurate for most people's interest in physics, but become extremely inaccurate at near-light-speed speeds;
    still good (and faster to calculate!) for your bike, car, or jet; but they fell from "almost universally considered accurate" to "approximation of a subset of cases these new laws apply to" in less than 10 years, iirc

    I think it should say "Yes climax change is a real thing however I'm skeptical on how much us humans have had an affect on it and how much we really can do about it."

    I'm not going to live that long, so I don't really care about the effects

    Also the members of the Paris deal aren't forced to do changes really

    Why, I do think it exists, it is heavily exaggerated. I also want to know, how much have humans been involved? The world has been around for like 8 billion years, and we started emitting these gases in the early 17th Century

    Yes, climate change is real and caused by humans, but I don't feel entitled to say what USA should do about it.

    I don't see this option!

    Just like evolution, if you don't believe in climate change, something is wrong with you.

    How much was caused by us? How much was natural? We already know that the earth has gone through a few changes since it came into being.

    To look at this at sadistic view point, I won't be alive to see anything terrible happen
