There's a lot of chatter among right-wing conservatives about how global warming is not real. Science is not based on political views, although it undoubtedly can be influenced or tainted by politics. Science is based on observations, hypotheses, experimentation, and then theories based on experiments that are repeatable and modifiable, and when an overwhelming majority of scientists come to a conclusion based on this system, it is quite unwise, to say the least, to believe the hick sitting next to you in a Denny's restaurant who says that global warming is a mass conspiracy among scientists who want to fuck up the world with their left-wing lies. Don't believe hicks. Believe science.
Science says, after many years of research, after much bullshit political debate, that global warming is, without any doubt whatsoever, real ... and it is caused primarily by mankind's behavior, specifically the burning of fossil fuels. What the world does about this indisputable fact is up to the will of the world's people and the world's sociopathic leaders, but the argument against global warming is specious ... like the argument that ignorant chick on "The View" made that she didn't know whether or not the world was really round because she had never seen it with her own eyes (apparently, she is blind to the countless photos of the Earth seen from space satellites or the Moon).
Ronald Reagan said that trees caused pollution. Yeah, he really said that and probably really believed it. Trees are organic matter and contain large quantities of carbon, and when they burn they release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which indeed contributes to pollution. But trees do not cause pollution. Burning trees (or, again, any fossil fuel) causes the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, thus contributing to the effects of global warming. Ronald Reagan wasn't a scientist. He wasn't even smart. He was also a shitty actor, but that's another story.
Here's another scientific fact: Evolution is real. If that hick in Denny's tells you it's not, that the Earth was created in a few days, or that dinosaurs existed at the time of the events of the Old Testament, feel free to call him a stupid fuck and eat all of his pancakes, because he doesn't deserve them. He would just use the energy he received from consuming the pancakes to pollute the gullible world with his bullshit notions about science, anyway.
Remember, Science doesn't give a fuck what your politics are. It just cares whether or not you're stupid.
Last scientific fact for the day: Stupid people just beget more stupid people. If you find yourself about to fuck a stupid person (or to be fucked by a stupid person ... depending on your gender or sexual orientation), please make sure prophylaxis against sexual diseases and, most especially, against pregnancy is used. The world has more than enough stupid people ... and morality and the environment frown on burning them as a fossil fuel.
Good luck, and may intellectual discernment ever be within the realm of possibility in your dealings with human beings.
