The greenhouse effect is based on scientific facts that are able to be 
experimentally proven at the high school level. Anyone arguing against 
that might as well tilt at Ohms law while they are at it..

That certain gases have an effect upon atmospheric heat retention is 
also a fact involved in the greenhouse effect.

We've been pumping some of those gases into the atmosphere, increasing 
their percentages of the atmosphere to levels that should  have a 
measurable effect. It appears that this is happening, and your note 
about looking at other areas of the world is well taken. The growing 
season in Canada has been extended by several weeks ( I don't have the 
report in front of me, so I can't note the exact amount) But in any 
event, the most effects will of course be felt at the fringes, even more 
so at first.

That being said, I am perfectly willing to say that global warming is 
utter bunkum. But what I need is some solid scientific evidence, not 
political axe-grinding. Let's see some solid evidence of the reasons why 
some scientific facts do not play out in real life, with the mechanisms 
that defeat the heat retention afforded by increased greenhouse gas 
percentage in the atmosphere. I also need a good explanations that what 
appears to be global warming is something else. Every attempt I have 
seen at debunking originates from funding sources or groups who would 
profit from people believing that Global warming is a hoax.

Like I say, I'm open, but not to politically based arguments.
