"But an intense debate centers on whether this warming is a natural phenomenon or a result of man’s burning of fossil fuels."
Keep in mind that your documentary that you watched is 12 years old... we know more now. It's conclusively anthropogenically accelerated. Fossil fuels are a major component, but other activities we undertake have also contributed to speeding up the warming process.
The only debate on this topic really comes from those who find the truth inconvenient and potentially unprofitable.
The issue of Global Warming has been thoroughly discussed by scientists, environmentalists, businessmen and politicians througout the 21st century. The majority of scientists agree that earth’s temperature climbed up relative to its past. They say that man’s use of fossil fuels burned up this hike. And if so, how can we combat the alarming and catastrophic results of what scientists predict if global warming goes on?
When I watched the documentary, “Global Warming: What’s Up With The Weather?” investigated the science and politics of one of the most-talked issues of this century: the truth about global warming. The program outlined how scientists agree on many issues underlying global warming: these “greenhouse gases” such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane trap radiation from the sun. But an intense debate centers on whether this warming is a natural phenomenon or a result of man’s burning of fossil fuels.
