Climate change affects everyone. Unfortunately, climate change has become a political sport based upon a great deal of incorrect information and false theories. To understand climate change, we need to understand how and why it is happening. The purpose of this presentation is to develop a clear understanding of climate change by discussing two things. What is the role of people and what is the role of Earth’s natural processes? Both of these activities have an important influence upon the process and its rate. In addition to present events, potential future outcomes will be addressed.
