Climate Change is Real and Accelerating GO TOP
ALL the scientific data points to massive changes in the climate situation over the past hundred years AND accelerating



TPB Note: I had what would now be called a STEM focused education at school and then went on to study engineering at Cambridge. My training was so very different from what it takes to become a lawyer where a strong argument using words can change the outcome. In engineering it is scientific reality that drives the outcome, and no amount of verbal argument can make bad engineering stay together. Thank heavens it is engineers that design and build aircraft, and not lawyers, and especially lawyers who have become politicians!
