Climate change is sort of hard to understand, this is a fair statement. It’s a complex idea, the basics of which is things are getting hotter but the reason why and how the planet works are more complicated which is part of what makes dismissing the concept so easy. This article is an interesting look at the variables that go into climate change by looking at clouds.
This article is scientific but also accessible and lays out some of the major factors in understanding and predicting climate change. One of which is that there are multiple variables that govern it. It’s not just, the sun and our exposure to it. Some of these factors pay a larger role in climate change than others.
And then there’s things that we don’t know or can’t predict however, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a good idea of things. And after all, even if climate change is nothing, we can all agree that more trees and less smog are good things.
