I am no expert at climate change. I focus on weather and climate on a here and now basis.
Given I am not an expert on the above, I must go the experts, the climate and weather scientists among others.
I am quite alarmed by what they saying. Seems like we are altering our climate by our carbon emissions.
Some politicians, newspaper writers and radio and tv broadcasters tell me that man made climate change is nonsense.
Scientists have certainly been wrong about things in the past but if there are so many saying the same thing, wouldn't you believe them?
What astounds me is the arrogance of some media people, politicians and amateurs who think that they have a better understanding of climate change and whether or not it is happening and whether we humans are responsible for it than those who study the science.
To paraphrase the world media baron Rupert Murdoch, we have nothing to lose by taking climate change seriously.
I will just warn politicians and I expect there are many who think like me even in your marginals. The time for politics on the matter has passed. This is serious.
