    it's also my opinion that a lot of the wacky weather everywhere is tied to the ocean warming and the normal currents getting screwed up
    the normal currents were always? Or changes from climate change? Heating system throughout Europe, the GulfStream, simply could not exist, only 10 thousand years ago.

There really isn't too much atmosphere to work with. In a fantasy world, we could pretend that we aren't polluting or you can look at the smoker next to you or hold your hand over the end of the tailpipe of a running auto or truck if you want a reality check. Then there is water. Maybe a trip to the huge Ocean "dead zones" could cause a synaptic trigger to initiate a thought that perhaps, collectively, we are rapidly screwing up this planet. I know we personally will be dead before the effects are dramatic, and that would just emphasize our collective lack of responsibility. Like it or lump it, we need to adjust our lifestyles to nearly Amish sensibilities. We must establish a natural relationship with the Planet.
    Great reply. However, I'd like to add how man has an impact by what he extracts from the Earth just as much as what pollutants he puts into the atmosphere.

    When you extract more of the Earth's natural lubricants (oil and water) from deep below the surface without allowing time to replenish them, this, too has an impact on the environment, ie, earthquakes, sinkholes. Tectonic plates shift, layers of the Earth's crust erod and/or weaken and eventually collapse.

    Bottom line: Climate change does happen naturallly, but man does contribute to it.

    A combo....BUT, I am not a climate scientist, so use some salt...
    And, my knowledge is from the past hundred years...how things were 5,000 or 500,000 years ago, I know not..The scientist may know, and I do not think they can be debated......by some conservative...
