Earth's temperature raises when Carbon levels in the atmosphere rise. We are pumping out more Carbon when we burn these fuels. It may not be the only reason the climate is changing, but it's definitely not helping, and the good money's on it doing some pretty serious damage.
Isn't carbon what plants need to survive and we rely on them to breath?

Plants only absorb as much carbon as they need to, it has nothing to do with regulation of carbon levels, so adding more carbon just introduces more carbon, it has nothing to do with plants. They only absorb as much CO2 as they need.

Actually when you give plants more carbon they grow more or at least that is what the bio lab taught me.

Also I remember hearing that British research center that first introduced global warming now said they have no evidence. Can't really remember the detail but I heard it on the Monica Crowley show.

Not to be that guy, but we're talking about carbon dioxide and not simply carbon.

The geological professionals in AIPG recognize that climate change is occurring and has the potential to yield catastrophic impacts if humanity is not prepared to address those impacts. It is also recognized that climate change will occur regardless of the cause. The sooner a defensible scientific understanding can be developed, the better equipped humanity will be to develop economically viable and technically effective methods to support the needs of society

i'm not saying that we can't try and help, but we think we have more influence than we do.

When people find out they have cancer, whether they controlled it or caused it, the reaction isn't 'fuck it, I'll lay down and die, shit wasn't my fault anyway'. Doesn't matter how much influence we have, who caused it, etc., etc., etc., all we know is that it's happening and we're not helping.
