Do you think climate change is real?

By Bec . Created on 21 Oct, 2020
Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 11,700 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives. The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is extremely likely (greater than 95% probability) to be the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over decades to millennia. Earth-orbiting satellites and other technological advances have enabled scientists to see the big picture, collecting many different types of information about our planet and its climate on a global scale. This body of data, collected over many years, reveals the signals of a changing climate. The evidence for rapid climate change is compelling: - Global temperature rise - Shrinking Ice Sheets - Glacial Retreat - Decreased Snow Cover - Sea Level Rise - Declining Arctic Sea Ice - Extreme Events, and - Ocean Acidification.

only the cause is debatable.

i think it possibly is but is this not just natural weather of the earth we have had these extremes in the past the ice age etc. maybe over population may be a factor i don't think only one thing is to blame .every one seems to blame coal but is it the culprit

The facts show the climate is changing and has been for a very long time. Just faster the closer we get to now. But calling it global warming is wrong, because not only are we getting warmer, but we are also getting colder.

No, we are not getting warmer and colder. The AVERAGE temperature is rising, resulting in warmer air and waters which create extremes of weather. While we do have periods of extreme cold, these are getting shorter and less frequent while periods of extreme heat are getting longer.

I'm glad to see that we agree that the maximums and minimums are getting more extreme. Which is why I think it should be called climate change. Yes the average temperature is rising. But calling it global warming results in people taking notice of the average and ignoring the extremes. All need dealing with. Lets all plant more trees and turn our airconditioners off or at least keep them within 10 degrees of th...
