Human induced climate change is already evidenced and proven. What is open
to prediction is how extreme it will get and when. This is dependent on
what actions governments take.
Versus the increased gamma radiation (cosmic rays hitting solar protons)
from our sun that affects the cloud cover over our planet that has a far
greater effect on climate change (which is the new term since global
warming failed due to the current cooling).
Gamma radiation is highest when the sun is its most sluggish.
Can't tax the sun, so gov'ts turn to humans that they can tax. Can't
tax the major source, so tax an available source. Of course, not giving
grants unless the recipient agrees to the gov't stance on climate change
also means applying influence to effect their agenda (taxation). They
deliberately skewed the news media. Well, that's what gov'ts do.
Those that talk about Global Warming aka Climate Change have very short
time ranges. They talk about now, not over geological time spans. We
should be going into another ice age but gamma radiation hence cloud
cover has increased to delay it. Gee, yeah, when we do get into the
next ice age, we'll get taxed for not outputting enough emissions to
keep the planet in our comfort zone and prevent reduction in crop volume
(if we're still here in the very short 100,000 years from now).
Hm, since Earth's orbit changes from oval to circular, wonder which
Milankovitch cycle we've been in over the last 20 years.
Nope, can't tax the planet, either, just the humans scurrying around
atop of it.
