  1. Bigger threats to our whole race are overpopulation, micro plastics and the dying pollinators. Focusing on climate change is a mistake that will cost us. Micro plastics are killing the fish in our seas, bees dying off are killing our plants, and overpopulation is shaking our borders and flooding west with refugees all over the planet. But hey, lets just ignore there issues and worry about the sea levels rising an inch over the next hundred years. Sheesh, what morons.

  2. Sahara Desert used to be full of forests and lakes, now it is just a desert, climate change has always been and will again.

  3. We have climate change where I live. From March until May it warms and rains some and then beautiful flowers come out. From June until September it remains warm and then cools s little. From October through November it gets colder and the leaves fall from the trees. From December through February it is very cold and snowy and then in March this beautiful and glorious natural pattern starts all over again. Isn't climate change a natural wonder to watch and enjoy!
