NOT a climate change denier

I do not deny that the climate is changing. It is obvious to be that the climate is changing. I do, however, wonder if it is only changing as much as it is because of the actions of humanity. Yes we have had an effect but there may have been some change even if we were at carbon zero and used no energy. I also cannot see that the whole of humanity becoming carbon neutral and using no energy (not likely to happen anyway) will reverse/cure the extant climate changes. I do not deny climate change but I do not expect that it is all our fault and I do not expect that we can stop it. Just my 2¢.

The climate on this planet has changed numerous times in the past without the influence of the human infestation and will continue to do so. There is plenty of evidence of this in ice cores taken from Antarctica. We may be accelerating it this time around but it would happen sooner or later anyway. People don't really understand that some of these climate changes make the atmosphere inhospitable to many forms of life, humans included, and it's possible that too much CO and CO2 in the atmosphere could push it in that direction again.

Generally speaking I defer to the scientific consensus on this one. I think we imagine we understand weather and climate because it's something we can see occurring on the macro-level, but fundamentally I think it's just as silly for the layman to argue against the prevailing opinion of professors of climatology as it is to have a go at what physicists say about sub-atomic particles.

I agree. Though the future might not favours humankind, life is resilient to climate changes as desert lives prove.
