climate change believer?

I would like to ask if there is anyone here who is a believer of climate change. Climate change has been a very delicate topic (alongside abortion and other very sensitive issues) among people of different countries. Ever since the revelation by personalities like Al Gore, many people have been taking sides on whether this phenomena is really happening. If it is reality, there are people who say that climate change is natural and nothing new. I would like to hear some arguments about this topic and other related issues. Tpoic and discussion inspired by a very hot, hot summer.

I think that this is a situation that falls between “the world is falling apart” and “there is nothing wrong, everyone is paranoid.” There are many drastic changes that have happened in the climate over the years. I think there are parts of it that is overblown, but there are other parts that are very true and people should really be worried about some of the things that are going on. One could point to the fact many of the disasters happening the world are really pointing to the fact that something is really wrong. Then again throughout history there have been a lot of interesting changes of climate. Some periods of intense warmth and cold. I think that these days, it does seem a lot worse because its what we are living it. However, there really needs to be something done to an extent, but that would require people to change their behaviors to a degree and while people are going to say that something is going to be done, no one important enough or rather not enough important people. It is a very tricky situation where there is no right answer across the board.

i believe that climate change is happening.because the places known for its hotness had little snowfall some months ago.the temperature of earth is increasing more and more and in the acian countties the temperature is increasing drastically in summer and in winter the cold have break all the past record.this much difference we have seen never before.this is due to the pollution we are producing all over the world,we can decrease it or even can stop but for that we have to take hard steps we will have to slow down our so called race of development and i think not a single country will allow this everyone is in race to become number 1,what happens to the atmosphere no one care.earth is showing its results.recently what happened in japan we all know.who will take responsibility for all these things happening all around the world.

Yes there is climate change. The frequenting natural calamities and extreming weather conditions proves it.
