    Glaciers have been melting since the end of the last ice age... Would you prefer North America be buried under an ice sheet ?

    No, remember climate change is only a declaration of a handful of scientists that do PAID data research and interpretations are subject to political socialism or forced control via F E A R. Protect our wonderful planet with sound conservation policies...not pie in the sky data collection.

    The pb is that even today's with all the proofs we have there is still a whole bunch of complete idiots that don't believe it and will spread their false information based on wrong beliefs. When people simply don't want to see the truth they won't change their minds even if the entire California burns down or the entire arctic melt down.

    Climate change is a natural occurring fact for billions of years.

A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the Earth; examples are floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other geologic processes. A natural disaster can cause loss of life or damage property,[1] and typically leaves some economic damage in its wake, the severity of which depends on the affected population's resilience, or ability to recover and also on the infrastructure available.[2] An adverse event will not rise to the level of a disaster if it occurs in an area without vulnerable population.[3][4] In a vulnerable area, however, such as Nepal during the 2015 earthquake, an earthquake can have disastrous consequences and leave lasting damage, which can require years to repair.
