Dear climate-denier, OurDear climate-denier, Our atmosphere is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 0.03% carbon dioxide-(that's less than 1%), and some other trace elements. The burning of fossils fuels, and deforestation of tropical rainforests have led to dramatically increasing carbon dioxide concentrations. This carbon dioxide is trapped in the earth's atmosphere, creating "the greenhouse effect", and raising the global temperature between 1 and 2 degrees Fahrenheit. That may not sound like much, but the extreme weather, super storms, melting polar ice, rising sea levels, droughts, torrential rains, and record temperatures are signs of climate change. Climate scientists acknowledge this, the Environmental Protection Agency-(EPA) and United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) acknowledge this; to name a few, and also acknowledge that this is not a naturally occurring phenomenon, but man-made. Find out what "geoengineering" is, and why it is happening overhead.
