Eh, there are a number of topics where it just gets to be routine. This. Evolution. Gun control. I'll cheerfully discuss any of them, if someone puts in the effort to familiarize themselves, and get past the basic level of thoughtless, uninformed questions that I've seen a thousand times. I suppose if someone wishes to deal with that, good on them for being helpful, but it's not really much of a debate, so much as it is informing someone who couldn't be bothered to google for themselves.
You can totally question global warming data on various grounds, but if you're going up against research papers, and have a standard of "others should provide my evidence for me", as some in this thread have, or similarly weak levels of effort, there's simply little reason for anyone to take you seriously, and it's deeply unlikely that you'll provide new information to anyone.
