Are Humans Responsible for Global Warming? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

What is your opinion on the global warming issue? As with any controversial topic, “experts” tend to be pretty evenly divided on both sides.

According to a Times magazine story in June 24, 1974 (with others to follow), we were on the verge of another great ice age. Now, a mere 33 years later, they say to roll up your pant legs because the melting ice caps will be raising oceans levels at a coastline near you. :?:

Now - http://www.time.com/time/archive/preview/0,10987,1176980,00.html

I will not re-hash the details here since if you have come here to vote, you probably have already formed an opinion.

You do not need to log on to vote, but you can only vote once. Thanks for your participation.

I think there's a mistake in your Time magazine 'Then' ref. The article is about political tensions, not a global cooling trend.

Greetings darrly:

Thanks for pointing out the incorrect URL. I'll fix it tomorrow. Cranial rectumitis on my part.

It is now tomorrow, and the correct URL is now in the original post. The headline titles were the same, but had different story lines. Sorry for the error.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
