I know I am an idiot for not believing everything about climate change, but I just can't seem to find reliable facts. I was told burning wood and coal were destroying the environment and that we were terribly depleting our forests at alarming rates. I was told when I was in the salvage business that freon was a terrible thing and that is was a major cause of climate change and we were forced to replace it with alternatives (scrape the old recovery machines and buy new ones, and new types of coolants had to be used). Later was told the new stuff was just as bad as the old stuff.
I just read the two major causes of climate change (not climate warming anymore) were burning fossil fuels and the depletion of our forests. So I thought I would check and see how many less trees we have now than we had 100 years ago. Seems like we are actually doing pretty good!

Now I am not saying that humans are not the cause of climate change, but I don't think scientists actually have a clue what is causing it and I think they are totally lost as to how to start trying to cure it.I do know we once had an ice age, and things heated up, what caused those two things? Certainly you would think that all the ice would kill the trees and that should cause global warming, but then things cooled off again, now they are warming up again. I don't keep up with this stuff a lot, but does anyone have an actual proposal available as far as what actions are actually being suggested to prevent global warming caused by man?
I also read that at least here in the United States we actually have more forests than we had 100 years ago (admittedly young forests) but that looks like a step in the right direction. So I am no so sure our grandkids should be hating us or thanking us.
