By the way, global warming is a theory, much like the theory of evolution. Neither have been conclusively proved and are therefore, not LAWS of nature (for an example of a Law, see Newton's Law of Conservation of Energy and Momentum).

Oh gawd, not this tripe again.

Global warming, evolution, and gravitation are observable facts: temperatures are rising, new species arise from old ones, and things fall.

Darwin's "Natural Selection" and Newton's "Universal Gravitation" are theories, that is, proposed explanations of the facts.

The human causation of global warming is a theory, currently favored by a very solid majority of climate scientists, especially those who are not funded by Exxon-Mobil.
