  • It’s not about what I believe but what I know. Climate change is a fact and is the cause of wiping out a species like the dinosaurs for instance and not a meteor coming from space to Earth like idiots think who can’t prove their point because their mind is in sci-fi movies. Climate change occurs every 100,000 years and that’s a fact. You can Google it.

      Shadow: wondering: how is it that you KNOW that? I mean: I could be wrong, but I don't think any human being on Earth KNOWS that. It might be true...and maybe you have good reason to BELIEVE that it is true...but I can't imagine how you could possibly KNOW that it is true.
    • Shadow
      I know it’s true because climate change is factual
  • Climate change also happens when factories and automobiles emit so many carbon particles they block out the Sun's rays leaving hotter air inside the atmosphere where humans live. That's why its snowing in Texas and Alabama. and the snows of Kilimanjaro are no longer snowy. 😎

      If climate change is making the Earth hotter, then why is it snowing in Texas and Alabama?
    • Hulk70166
      Climate change is overall climate, it isn't daily weather. We have good days and bad days weather-wise however in the last ten years what we are experiencing was foretold by climatologists forty years ago. Snow in Texas and Alabama never happens except now because overall, the Earth's surface is getting hotter.
  • Well...I'm going to try to be specific. (IMO the term "climate change" is a catchall term most often used to avoid well-deserved ridicule, even though the term is fundamentally accurate). *** First: global warming is happening. The evidence supporting that is clear and practically indisputable. *** Now...--AS FAR AS I KNOW-- the primary causes have NOT yet been identified with any degree of confidence. The *most likely* cause - backed by a LOT of unfortunately WEAK and INCONCLUSIVE but nevertheless scientific evidence - is that human-generated greenhouse gas emissions are the primary culprit. *** I emphasize: AS FAR AS I KNOW that is NOT certain, that has NOT been "proved" scientifically, and there remain several other possible major causes of the global warming that IS occurring. What the human-generated greenhouse gas idea IS is the (genuinely) scientific theory that is most widely supported by appropriately-accredited scientists. *** IN OTHER WORDS: most of the best experts are in agreement that it is being caused by human-generated greenhouse gasses. That does NOT mean that they certainly are correct (they might be correct). That does NOT mean that certainly they are at least partially correct (they might be partially correct). *** In my mind, the biggest problem is that - according to these same expert scientists - the Earth has undergone SEVERAL MORE SEVERE episodes of global warming in the past, ***during periods when humans didn't exist***. These same scientists DON'T KNOW WHY those past periods of global warming occurred, and (reasonably) that means that this period of global warming we are experiencing COULD be caused by the very same unrecognized cause(s). In fact: at least in theory we COULD be currently experiencing a sort of "perfect storm" of natural causes that are not only causing global warming, but causing it to occur more swiftly than in past global warming periods. *** BUT THAT IS PURE SPECULATION. The speculation IS (in my opinion) certainly possibly correct, but the scientific evidence simply doesn't support it (or contradict it either, as far as I know). *** Conclusion/summary: SO - global warming IS DEFINITELY occurring - we do NOT know for sure what is causing it - and so we do NOT know for sure what will retard it (safely...there are UNSAFE ways to retard it that are already well-publicized...)

      BR - Because tree rings are sensitive to local climate conditions such as precipitation and temperature, they give scientists some information about an area's past local climate or “micro-climate.” For example, rings generally grow wider in warm, wet years and thinner in cold, dry years.If the air can affect trees, it can affect humans. Also drilling in the artic ice has shown dirt as starting with the industrial revolution.

      "...rings generally grow wider in warm, wet years and thinner in cold, dry years...". You thought this up all by yourself? It's only logical that trees are going to absorb more water when there is more rain available and less water during a dry season. It has nothing to do with "climate change" it has to do with the seasons. The Pacific Northwest, for instance, always has more lush vegetation - because they get the weather fronts directly from the Pacific Ocean. Here's a newsflash for you: not as much precipitation gets to the other side of the mountain range, and because of this, they have areas called "deserts". Climate change? If that's what you want to believe - for the rest of us, it's the way it's been since Lewis and Clark first set foot in the region.

      1465 - I get my information from National Geographic - Not Dow Chemica, or Westinghouse (the tree chopping company) l lol
  • It's all a farce. Yes, the weather changes - it gets warmer for a while and then colder for a while. If the temperature stayed the same all the time, the air would become stagnant and unable to support life. It's the temperature changes (gradient) that create high and low-pressure areas that cause the air to move. The so-called "greenhouse effect" is laughable. Icebergs will not cause flooding of major cities. You can prove this by placing an ice cube in a glass of water. As the ice melts, does the water level increase? Of course, it doesn't. That's because of something called "displacement". The volume of the ice displaces just so much water. As the ice cube loses its mass, it mixes with the water in the glass. There is no "more" water in the glass than what was contained in the ice cube.

      Where did 1465 get his degree in climatology?
    • 1465
      I was born in an era when a person was required to get an education. We were taught something called "common sense".
    • Silver030
      Very well said.
  • years ago a scientist had a big story in the paper and said when CFCs was taken out of refrigeration's world wide ,it would create havoc on our weather for many years.{ something to do with ozone layer} .and thats what seems to have happened ..whether that guy died i dont know ..cause thats the only reference made about CFCs that i know of
    • 1465
      And what happened with that? There is still a hole in the ozone - why is it not the global threat that it was "back in the day"? The hole in the ozone layer HAS to be there. It's a natural valve that allows the earth to purge built-up gases (such as those affecting "climate change") into space.

  • oops double up↑
  • Sure, it's pretty hard to deny the changing climate around the world.
    • DancesWithWolves
      Thanks, for sharing your comment
  • Yes of course , we all know the climate has and still is changing .

  • I believe in weather. As for climate changes caused by humans, I doubt it. We've been having Weather cold snaps and warm weather since before humans ever arrived on the scene.
    • 1465
      The dinosaurs farted themselves out of existence.
    • DancesWithWolves
      Thank you for your information :)
  • I believe climate change is real. There is an overabundance of evidence strange , unseasonable weather worldwide.
    • 1465
      "Unseasonable" based on how many years of observation? They've only been keeping records since around 1899. They can reach conclusions about what happened to the dinosaurs based solely on weather behavior over the past 125 years?
  • I believe the climates changing yes, but the argument tends to be over why. One minute it was global cooling, now it's global warming, after many years of conspiracy theorists shouting that the clouds were not clouds but chemtrials, the CIA finally admitted to geoengineering. The sun is getting hotter but apparently that has nothing to do with it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBG81dXgM0Q In fact the government has been using weather manipulation since the 1950's as seen in navy documents. These are PDF's https://www.nsf.gov/nsb/publications/1965/nsb1265.pdf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VE8dQ5OpS_g&list=PLwfFtDFZDpwuQIlidS0dc30xM4y_91nTR&index=4 Hulk states about the dangers of green house gases, but what about the aluminium being sprayed into the sky, with the goal of it acting like a volcano does when it erupts in blocking out the sun's rays, except omitting the point that anyone breathing in those similar chemicals from a volcano will be made unwell. They are now saying it takes the CO'2 from the sky, this is a new line, but it was for reflecting the sun's rays, what that then does is keep the heat in the ozone, while reflecting the sun's ray's back to itself, and no one knows not only the long term effects on people inhaling these particles, but also the effect on the ozone and the sun, this is all experimental.

  • If climate change were real then we would have forest fires up and down the entire coast of the American continent (North, Central America and South America). Don't you find it odd that California forest fires (many of which are intentionally set) end at the northern and souther borders of California? In other words, California forest fires don't extend into Oregon or Mexico. Climate change is a democratic agenda.

      Siliver, wait a few years, it will.
  • It is actually happening.
