I would like to challenge Buffalo Roam to debate on the above topic. I would be open to having a four-person debate, since I'm sure there are other climate skeptics on sciforums, as well as climate change "believers", and two heads are better than one. I will debate the negative side. I invite anybody who wishes to join that side of the argument to nominate in this thread. I challenge Buffalo Roam to take the positive side of the debate, and invite one other person to join him. I suggest the debate take place according to the Standard Rules I suggested in the sticky thread in the Formal Debates forum. The affirmative side will post first. Thereafter, either member of the positive or negative side may post. Note, however, that each participant will be allowed only four posts in total. Each side will have 1 day from the time of the last post by a member of the previous side to post his or her next post, except by other agreement negotiated in the current thread during the debate (if more time is needed). Each posts will have a total word limit, including quotes, of 1500 words. Potential debaters should volunteer below. If any potential debater wants to modify the above suggested rules, please also post below. Since I don't want to drag this out forever, I think a reasonable time limit to negotiate the participants and rules for the debate will be 7 days. If no agreement is reached in that time, I will withdraw this proposal.
