It occurs naturally regardless of how severe or minute those changes are.
It occurs naturally with small and severe changes, some of it is anthropogenic.
It occurs naturally with small changes,but severe changes are anthropogenic.
It does not occur naturally, any changes we have now are anthropogenic.
Climate change does not occur.There is no global warming or cooling.
I do not know/other.
We Humans have enough real problems ahead of us without contriving imaginary
windmills to tilt.
Long term, weather Co2 is a major factor or not, is irrelevant.
The technology is already invented to solve the problem.
The cost of the inorganic fuels may be higher than Americans pay now,
but lower than Europeans pay.
It turns out hydrocarbons my be both the problem and the solution.
Nature shows us the best way to store energy, we duplicate it.
And the infrastructure is already in place.

I could envision an energy credit system, where anyone who creates energy, can get credits
that can be saved to use in winter, spent at the gas pump, or purchase electricity.
Energy storage was always the real problem, and now a solution has been found.
FYI: I think modern refineries are already rearranging the hydrocarbon molecules to increase yields
of high demand fuels. (If someone is a Petroleum Engineer, maybe they could confirm this.)
Please repost the poll once the definition of "climate change" quits changing and stabilizes to something on which we can all disagree more cogently.
Who chimes "No Absolutes!" chimes absolutely.
For my short life span, climate changed several times. As an aside of warming, and in the direction of cooling.
Of course, this does not mean that we must artificially degrade nature. And do not think that, aftermath of human activity, do not affect the climate on Earth, but should not exaggerate this effect.
From WikipediaAn ice age, or more precisely, a glacial age, is a period of long-term reduction in the temperature of the Earth's surface and atmosphere, resulting in the presence or expansion of continental and polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. Within a long-term ice age, individual pulses of cold climate are termed "glacial periods" (or alternatively "glacials" or "glaciations" or colloquially as "ice age"), and intermittent warm periods are called "interglacials". Glaciologically, ice age implies the presence of extensive ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres. By this definition, we are still in the ice age that began 2.6 million years ago at the start of the Pleistocene epoch, because the Greenland, Arctic, and Antarctic ice sheets still exist.
