Every morning I wake up and look at the Coastal Mountain range and admire their beauty, then I remind myself that though some of them are cut from glaciers thousands of years ago, some of the formation are from plate changes, and Alberta used to be the ocean floor.  News flash - the climate is always changing.  You just have media pumping gullible fear about nature into your ears; like there is anything people can do to stop it again.

IMO the topic which is way more destructive on our planet is micro plastics. That is something that needs to be sorted fast.

Doesnt that mean since its already micro it'll be reduced back to fossil fuels quicker?

The fact that it’s micro means it’s far easier to ingest. Scientists have already found trace plastics in humans, never mind a lot of the foods we eat.

All true, yet not relevant. 

Human caused climate change is real and differs from natural climate change in significant ways. 

But I’m guessing you knew that already.

This is a graphic showing the average temps over 100 years.  White is average, blue is colder and red hotter.  The speed of change that we are seeing does happen in nature, but only when we are struck by a meteor or a supervolcano blows it's lid, but even those changes are usually short lived.  It takes a lot to alter the climate permanently as we appear to be doing.  Unless we all somehow missed a giant meteor impact.
