My gut feeling is that now that the herd seems to be going in the direction of believing that global warming is primarily due to humanity, I can't help but think 'gee the herd has never been or rarely been right before, so why should I believe it is now?'. May seem somewhat simplistic and while I believe global warming may be an actuality, I can't help but think there may be more to it than being primarily induced by humanity. It maybe that we are helping a natural phenomena that may be occurring as part of some kind of periodic heating that occurs regularly throughout earth's history. Rather than get caught up with the herd I think I'll keep an open mind.

Feel free to keep an open mind: natural variations in temperature are far from unheard of. But in this case it's industrial emissions and we're in a world of hurt.
