    Climate change is the earth going thru a normal cycle is it not?there is so much speculation as to what is actually going on, that the simplicity of a regular cycle for earth has been lost.

He got very in depth about it ,but of couse being with nasa he could only go so far thank you for your comment though. Ive known this for 25 yrs . Its based on the same principal as a 4 week cycle. But takes place over every several thousands of years so a half a brain?lol.

    Planting trees is a good start. Yhe thing with that is for every tree removed with good foilage we would have to plant 20 or so depending on type of tree. But its a good start!

    Thank you for saying what I have tried to for so long. The earth goes through natural cycles. We just happen to be living in the era of the latest adjustment. Oh lucky us.
