Tom, is your belief that you see "other factors", while people who are 
qualified in the field don't, consistent with good mental hygiene?

Your comment shows that you have not a clue about science. Could that be 
why you keep making such a fool of yourself?

To recap: 97% of the best qualified consider the evidence sufficient to 
be reasonably confident that human activity is a significant 
contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures. In science, 
that's about as close as you're going to get to "proven", unless and 
until we pass a tipping point, so the planet turns into hell.
