One record heat wave doesn't make a trend, and even NASA, a government agency whose funding is partially tied to climate change research, admits that the world has cooled since 1998. But, assuming the planet is warming, does that necessarily mean that humans are the cause? Of course not. In 2007 the green movement-sympathising National Geographic admitted that melting polar ice caps on Mars puts the prospect of man-made global warming into question. And this week the Daily Mail reported that a lost kingdom lies beneath the North Sea, evidence that sea levels rose dramatically during a period in which man clearly had little impact on global temperatures. In the article, Dr. Richard Bates of the University of St. Andrews, who created an exhibit of artifacts excavated from the submerged land, gave an outstanding quote regarding man-made global warming:
People seem to think rising sea levels are a new thing, but it’s a cycle of Earth's history that has happened many, many times.The current heat wave may or may not be caused by global warming. But even if it is caused by global warming, that doesn't necessarily mean it's caused by man-made "climate change".
