Maybe? Might? Could? Experts fear? The usual warmer buzz words.

I know the climate is changing. We have past history to indicate that.

Miles deep ice covers former coral beds. Ice recedes leaving fertile land. Lakes, huge lakes, form. Islands appear, islands disappear. That's climate change. All this happened prior to mankind appearing on earth.

A one day, or even a 1 year anomaly is weather.

4 things we need to worry about but don't:

A huge volcano erupts, entire land masses disappear, leaving major extinctions in its wake.

A large meteor hits the earth. Destroying everything anywhere near and putting up a blanket of debris miles thick that does block our source of energy and starts a new ice age.

The sun itself changes. Turns hotter or colder or moves its orbit. Or throws up it's own cloud cover giving less energy to earth. Even on a temporary basis this will seriously affect the earth's climate.

The earth's magnetic field will reverse.

These all are near certainties, and have happened before.

number five: human adding to polluting the planet including but not exclusive of weather disrupting

I'd call that a 'change' wouldn't you, Franc?
No, I would call that unusual weather,

We were unusually cold here in December. Went below Zero some 35 degrees below our "normal" The Artic mass that is normal over the pole came to visit us and was replaced by warm air off the Pacific.
It's called weather.


Thankfully, our climate is not static. Never has been. So why do you expect that it should do so in the future?
