I believe weather is cyclic and too many unqualified sheep are jumping on this perceived idea of global warming without looking back through history.
I am not qualified at all, nor do I know all the stats, but if over history there were 3 hotter years than last year, which were spread out with large spans of time between each occurence, it would seem to be more likely an even that happens occasionally. If however, the last 4 years were progressively the hottest ever recorded and temperatures are continuing to increase, I would be more inclined to believe climate change is actually happening.
That said, I do want to reduce my impact to the environment, which I work towards on a daily basis. I have solar power and try to run most appliances during the day when the sun is out, I recycle as many items as possible, I look for 'earth friendly' products when there is a choice and I own an off-grid rural property where all manner of frogs and wildlife reside, and I continue to increase the native plants there. I always look out for new suggestions to create a better world for all.
