"Mother Nature-the 2nd"

Climate Change is not a religion. You can't 'believe' in it. It is a fact like 1+1=2. It's mathetically, scientifically proven evidence that CO2 and Methane changes In our atmosphere cause our Planet Earth-and other Planets to BE warmer or colder-depending on their presence or absence.
