Indeed, global warming is certainly real. Its just the primary cause thats being obfuscated to try and swindle the public out of more money.
Anthropomorphic global warming (man made) is a factor, but a small one. The activities of man of more resulting in the severe poisoning of our planet,
but not its warming.
The sun is by the farthest the greatest influencer of planetary temperature at this point in the planets history. Earths surface is relatively cold at
this point comparing it to where it was in bygone eons, and its not really being heated by its interior to a significant degree any more. The heat is
coming from outside the planet.
Its easily provable; all the planets in our solar system have experienced a observable shift in temperature, upwards. The only thing within reason
that could cause that is a change in the central star of the system.
As the sun heats the Earth, one very important thing happens, the temperature rises and the atmospheres capacity to hold moisture increases. With the
increase in moisture capacity, potential energy levels increase as well, resulting in... can you guess?
More violent, unpredictable and erratic weather. Not to mention wetter weather. Temperature spreads for any time frame could also become wider,
resulting in very hot temperatures some places, but unseasonably cool in others., and vice versa.
Its all driven by the sun. When the sun says "get hotter" to its planets, the planets ask "how hot?"
In 30 years or so, its not impossible that the world all of us have grown up in will be significantly different from a climatological stand point.
Were already seeing it slowly change now, and have been for the last decade or more.
Forgot to add, methane is pouring into our atmosphere at a tremendous and accelerating rate due to methane clathrates destabilizing and turning into
Methane is ~20x the insulator as CO2 is, and once methane clathrates start their destabilization process, it doesnt stop until they are ALL sublimated
So with the sun doing its wacky thing that we dont understand, and methane more and more heavily insulating the planet, get ready for a lot more heat
in the future.
