I have always maintained that the cause of "Climate Change" is not important, it is our action in response to it which is vital.
Personally, I can see validity in both the man-made and natural cycle arguments. The fact is, industry DOES affect climate and temperature. This has
been seen in major urban areas for decades. The concrete raises the temperature in these locations, the buildings "hold" the pollutants closer to
the ground, people become sick from it. Smog is not imaginary, chemicals in water is not imaginary, sewage on the coastlines is not imaginary.
Likewise, there is a mass of evidence to show that the Earth has gone through cycles throughout history. There is even more evidence coming to light
now which suggests that a total polar shift is possible too. What used to be considered a wild suggestion made by the likes of Graham Hancock and
others is now turning out to be possible.
The magnetic field is also proven to be changing. How would our use of fossil fuels cause that?
Other planetary bodies are shown to changing in temperature too, how did we cause that?
The Sun is increasing in activity, there is absolutely no way we have caused that.
Ultimately my thoughts always return to the same point. Our fault or not, we have to improve on the way we live on this planet. If we don't, we risk
destroying our own species, not the Earth.
If there is a natural cycle I do believe that it will soon be made apparent, and a date will arise where this will reach a peak.
At the moment, for me, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that all of this is a part of a cycle that has happened many times before (and probably
wiped species off the face of the Earth, destroyed civilizations, caused global destruction...) and it's about to happen again.
And I am leaning towards it being related to the Mayan calendar and 2012.
It is possible that a planetary alignment could shift the Earth's mantle (being witnessed now in the increase in Earthquakes, the proven change in
Magnetic North etc.).
But, whatever the cause or the consequence, it is not acceptable for Humans to simply dismiss their responsibilities to this planet for religious
reasons, arrogance, greed or ignorance. There is no doubt that our actions on this planet hurt us, it, and many other species, natural cycle or
It is not acceptable to claim that global warming is a scam simply to allow the continued rape of this planet.
Whatever the cause is, we have to change as a species.
