Climate change is still a politically divisive issue, despite scientists' near unanimous agreement on the issue.  A plurality of Americans, 42%, believe global warming is "generally exaggerated."  Forty percent believe that changes in global temperatures are due more to natural causes than human activities, according to Gallup polling.  There's also a significant difference based on political affiliation.

But let's put aside pundits and polls and look at the data.  The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has started to release its latest compilation of scientific data, and based on those findings has stated, "Global warming of the climate is unequivocal ... and many of the changes are unprecedented over decades or millennia."

Though there are differences in the models of how rapidly climate change is occurring or what specific factors are contributing to the changes, the scientific community agrees that climate change is happening and it's our fault. 

Below are cringe-worthy comments climate deniers have made that contradict the available information on global warming.
