Here: Global Warming
First of all, I don't see the Global Warming situation happening, because I have yet to see a scientist explain on a molecular level exactly how the CO2 traps the heat. I do believe that the Earth is warming up, just that there's nothing we can do about it.

With the increased heat, we should see more cloud formation (from the increase in evaporation), which reflects a good portion of the sunlight and heat back. Increased clouds means that we will see a cooling trend which will in turn lower the CO2. Only about half of the heat from the Sunlight even reaches Earth, so the increased gasses should also show an increased amount that gets reflected back. These gasses don't behave like a one way door, they block as well as absorb. Also, take a look at a picture of the Milky Way Galaxy:
The laws of gravity in a nutshell basically say that small objects get attracted to larger objects, right? So that must mean that there's a "Sun" that our sun orbits around. This orbit probably doesn't have a perfectly circular orbit, so it's very possible that the Sun's orbits have seasons too. What we could be seeing is just the Summer for our solar system's orbit, or a "Double Summer". Considering that it takes longer for an orbit like Pluto's to orbit the sun when compared to earth (200 years for Pluto verses Earth's 1.), doesn't it seem reasonable that the Sun's orbit would take millions of years to orbit the Milky Way Galaxy? This would explain the Ice Age perfectly. Are we to believe that the CO2 in the air could really be the cause of this increase in heat? It's very possible, but we are forgetting that the Sun isn't in the center of the Universe; that the Earth doesn't have a consistent Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter Pattern. There are simply too many factors that we aren't considering. In fact it could be very possible that the CO2 levels that are going with the rising and cooling trends are simply a coincidence. Then again, none of us have all the answers, I'm just trying to show some other points of view so we don't make a bunch of foolish mistakes by following the wrong paths.

it doesn't matter whether you're thin or thick; eating healthy is just a smart way to live.

But should you be forced to live smart? If I don't believe that these things are causing problems should I be forced to buy a cleaner (typically more expensive) car? If I want to drown myself in trans fat (to return to your eating analogy) why should it be anyone's place to stop me? Why is it anyone's place to make me be smart?
every little bit helps
