I have always been a man-made global warming skeptic. Don't misconstrue my skepticism of a much-touted "settled scientific fact," I am well aware that the industrialization of the planet has had a huge negative impact on the biosphere. However, I don't think that impact extends, to any substantial degree, to affecting global climate patterns. So, who else among us is a skeptic? And who believes the so-called "scientific consensus"? And on what do you base your beliefs?
