For David Clounch:

I always use the abbreviations in this way:

GW = global warming (the belief that the temperatures are in fact rising)
AGW = anthropogenic global warming (the belief that a significant component of the rising temperatures comes from human activity)

That's also how I've understood everyone on this list to be using the terms.

  I took the following from a website dealing with acronyms.

  Acronym Definition
  ====== ===================
  AGW Anthropogenic Global Warming
  AGW Anti-Global Warming

  So, which is the definition used on this list? I always took it to mean the second one.
