Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is the hypothesis that human emissions of CO2 due to burning fossil fuels are causing dangerous global warming.
AGW proponents claim AGW is so dangerous that we must drastically reduce our fossil fuel CO2 emissions in order to stop the disastrous effects of AGW.
Proponents claim the only way to sufficiently reduce human CO2 emissions, and thereby escape the disastrous effects of AGW, is to pass laws that force us to reduce our CO2 emissions. AGW proponents claim we must pass state laws, such as California’s AB32 and Gov. Schwarzenegger’s Western Climate Initiative, national laws, such as Cap and Trade hidden under various clever names, and even international laws, such as the Copenhagen Treaty, in order to force all people and all nations to limit their fossil fuel CO2 emissions.
