    Is global warming/climate change just a myth and it is just a natural cycle or is it really happening?

    Natural cycles don't happen this quickly without some major event like a volcano.

    It's no myth - the myths in this debate come from the skeptics. There are debates within the science community about the rate of anthropogenic change, but it is now undisputed that we are putting more CO2 into the environment than it can absorb, and that CO2 is a greenhouse gas which causes warming.

    Here is a list of common myths offered up by skeptics, and the science-based responses to those myths... http://grist.org/series/skeptics/
