Keep in mind that Climate Change is only 3% at most, of Mother Nature. But today I think a lot of people believe Climate Change is as powerful as Mother Nature. Or has taken over Mother Nature. Today science is at the point of understanding the driving force of temperature. Once the driving force is understood then the earth’s thermostat will be studied. Once scientists understand how the thermostat works, then it will be time for actions and regulations at world levels. That is how science should work.
What you don't seem to understand that Mother Nature's Climate Change is a 100% result
of Global Warming.
There are several causes which contribute to Global Warming and it's resulting Climate Change. Human industrial air pollution is one of the causes of Global Warming and it's resulting Climate Change.
Our task is to minimize human contribution to Global Warming and it's resulting Climate Change. This is what we are studying, and we now know
what the Human contribution to Global Warming and it's resulting Climate Change is.
And that contribution is 250 years of ever increasing human use of millions of years of previously sequestered CO2 (which is a greenhouse gas) and adding it back into The Earth's (Mother Nature's) Ecosphere, in addition to cutting down millions of acres of forest
which is Mother Nature's way of converting CO2, which bad and contributes to Global Warming, into Oxygen, which is good and contributes to good health of living things on Earth.
Therein lies our problem
. All other Natural causes are irrelevant, we can only control Human contribution to Global Warming which causes Climate Change. It's not very difficult to understand.
The Earth's Climate Balance is due to Mother Nature's Terra Forming. The Earth's Global Warming and resulting Climate Change, is due to Human interference with this process and contribution to Global Warming and is resulting destabilization of Climate Balance. This is why we are now experiencing Climate Change, which is Mother Nature's response to our interference with Natural balancing of the Ecosphere.
Human's are the bad child that's lighting the matches, that will eventually burn down the house. But Mother Nature will give us a spanking from which we may not recover. Mother Nature's punishment is already becoming obvious by our Change in Climate patterns caused by Human contribution to Global Warming.
But Mother Nature is just beginning to punish Humankind and in the process also punish all other large animals which are adapted to Mother Nature's Natural Climate balance.
Mass migration is already in progress and it will get worse, until Humans stop contributing to Global Warming and it's resulting Climate Change.
Remember the old saying; "Can't fool with Mother Nature". We now know that we are fooling with Mother Nature and that we better mend our ways because Mother Nature's punishment is harsh and will result in the death of millions of Humans and other large animals, which will allow Mother Nature to rebalance the Earth's Ecosphere and stabilize it's Climate.
I believe you mentioned China as the great polluter and that WAS true, but China has actually set goals to minimize their impact on Global Warming and it's resulting Climate Change, while we are quibbling about the US industrial impact which is second only to China. Where are the goals to reduce our Impact on Global Warming and it's resulting Climate Change?
