Climate change

Does anybody really understand climate change?

Does anybody really understand climate change?

I’ll admit it.

I don’t understand climate change.

I have two M.Sc. degrees in environmental science and sustainable resource management, with climate change being a major focus of both (including a thesis that looked at funding carbon sequestration in tropical rainforests). Still, I don’t really understand this complex and confusing phenomenon.

But I do know it’s real.

I know you can’t put centuries’ worth of carbon dioxide into the air and not have an effect on the global climate. Some people think we don’t have the power to alter the global atmosphere, but I doubt these people know...
