  1. Some people believe the climate data that has been collected is not enough to show a trend in rising global temperatures. Other scientists believe that there are those so eager to find signs of global warming, they are not interpreting data with an objective mind. And still others say that global warming is just a natural climate shift and that plants and animals can adapt to such a shift. And it's not just the science that's being debated. Lawmakers are also in disagreement over whether the costs to implement global warming policy outweigh the risks that global warming potentially poses. Many believe legislation could eliminate jobs and even if the United States changes energy policies, it does not guarantee that other countries that pose environmental threats would do the same.
