kotoreru,

First, so that I will not seem off topic by going into global warming here, I want to relate it to the original question of this topic -- "The Most Promising Ideas of Biology".

Global warming touches probably every idea of biology in some way. The window of temperatures on this planet enables the existence of its every organism. So, hopefully I will not be accused of drifting by answering your last question: Do I believe that humans are partially responsible for global warming?

To answer:

Lately, I have been lead to believe that humans are only a drop in the bucket, compared to the sheer extent of terrestrial and cosmic factors that overide our miniscule effect.

Do I believe that our carbon-dioxide belching technology is okay? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This damages biology on local scales of life-form concentration (e.g., pollution damage to cardiorespiratory system, etc.).

I believe that global warming is a CONvenient truth for those who want to use it to effect technological change. Is it THE truth, though? No, I do not believe that it is,... strictly speaking.

Hmm, perhaps we should start a new topic dedicated to anthropogenic global effects? I can see some good discussion coming out of it.
