I don't understand the emphasis on MAN-MADE as a reason to not take action. Even if global warming is not a MAN-MADE cause (which personally I find unlikely), is it something everybody wants to risk? Clearly pumping tons of carbon into the atmosphere is not good. We are smart enough to figure out better and cleaner ways to produce mass energy. Why don't we just clean up now regardless of the cause for the sake of the environment? In 50 - 100 years, it's going to be too late to be decide, "oh wow, it really was MAN-MADE, better start taking action now!".

The whole debate seems pointless to me, but I very well could be missing something.
