Analogy!

So there is this room. And it's a big room, but it's sealed off. And in this room, there are a billion cars. And there are a trillion electrical motors, billions and billions of which are running 24 hour hours a day. And there are a million airplane engines. And there are a billion other machines, all running either on fuel or on electricity generated from fuel. And every single day, more people enter the room, and many of them bring cars and electrical motors with them. And no one ever cracks a window.

If you think that either (a) the room will never get any hotter, or (b) the room might get hotter, but it has nothing to do with the billions of people running their billions of cars and boats planes and motorcycles and their trillions of electrical motors, then congratulations! You are a global warming "skeptic"! Now go forth and be smug.
