[man-made] Global Warming: a way for the elite to take over the world to take over and control the world?
Is that why they are pushing the issue so much? Is that why they tell us that all scientists support the man-made global warming theory? (that is a lie) 17,200 Scientists Dispute Global Warming

Wow, great source, I will copy that one. I agree with you.
I noticed that many gw advocates are using sources like wikipedia and tend to copy and paste their answers, very rarely giving original answers.

The scientific consensus is that humans are the primary cause of the current global warming. This is the consensus because the evidence to that effect is overwhelming.
In 2004 an article in Science magazine discussed a study by Prof. Naomi Oreskes in which she surveyed 928 scientific journal articles that matched the search [global climate change] at the ISI Web of Science. Of these, according to Oreskes, 75% agreed with the consensus view (either implicitly or explicitly), 25% took no stand one way or the other, and none rejected the consensus.
Your "17,200 scientists" is from the completely bogus Oregon Petition. For starters, anyone with a degree could sign the Oregon Petition. They could have zero knowledge of global warming and still sign it, as long as they held a degree.
Secondly, the petition was not sent alone. Along with the petition went a "summary" of global warming science written by a biochemist. Not a climatologist, not even a freaking meteorologist or geologist. A biochemist. Surprise surprise, the summary basically said that global warming was bogus. This is what people based their signatures on. And that's not all:
In 2005, Scientific American reported:
“Scientific American took a sample of 30 of the 1,400 signatories claiming to hold a Ph.D. in a climate-related science. Of the 26 we were able to identify in various databases, 11 said they still agreed with the petition —- one was an active climate researcher, two others had relevant expertise, and eight signed based on an informal evaluation. Six said they would not sign the petition today, three did not remember any such petition, one had died, and five did not answer repeated messages. Crudely extrapolating, the petition supporters include a core of about 200 climate researchers – a respectable number, though rather a small fraction of the climatological community."
In a 2005 op-ed in the Hawaii Reporter, Todd Shelly wrote:
“ In less than 10 minutes of casual scanning, I found duplicate names (Did two Joe R. Eaglemans and two David Tompkins sign the petition, or were some individuals counted twice?), single names without even an initial (Biolchini), corporate names (Graybeal & Sayre, Inc. How does a business sign a petition?), and an apparently phony single name (Redwine, Ph.D.). These examples underscore a major weakness of the list: there is no way to check the authenticity of the names. Names are given, but no identifying information (e.g., institutional affiliation) is provided. Why the lack of transparency?"
In May 1998 the Seattle Times wrote:
“ Several environmental groups questioned dozens of the names: "Perry S. Mason" (the fictitious lawyer?), "Michael J. Fox" (the actor?), "Robert C. Byrd" (the senator?), "John C. Grisham" (the lawyer-author?). And then there's the Spice Girl, a k a. Geraldine Halliwell: The petition listed "Dr. Geri Halliwell" and "Dr. Halliwell."
Asked about the pop singer, Robinson said he was duped. The returned petition, one of thousands of mailings he sent out, identified her as having a degree in microbiology and living in Boston. "It's fake," he said."Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon_Petition

I keep saying this,global warming is a myth.It's getting hotter because of a decline in volcanic activity.Just let Krakatoa blow its top again and everyone will actually want to figure out away to create global warming.But I suppose they will start saying that global warming is what caused this decline in volcanic activity,and they will have absolutely no scientific backing on it.

Seems to me the elite already run the world. Who do you think is in charge?
