Climate Change

On the list of events that affect the earth and should be worried about, climate change is down pretty far in my estimation. Sun sending a big flare our way,asteroid hit, large volcanic eruption, nearby supervova, poisoning of the ocean, overfishing. The climate has always changed. Look up the Maunder solar minimum and volcanic winter to get a real scare. Humans always suffer from recency bias.

Climate change

Climate change is real, for those who doesn't believe it, you will. Yes God has control over everything, he also told us to look, watch the sap of the trees. He also gave us 5 senses to use.

Climate change

Climate change is it real thing however we have no control over it and to think you do have control over it means you think that you are somehow God. God is the only one that can control the climate. Anything other than that is ridiculous.
