Why is there so much confusion and misinformation on the issue we call Climate Change?
Addressing that question, will help us better address the issue itself.
Climate Change is the result.
Change in the air above us; radical, long term change; change, on the order of millions of years, is the problem.
When we understand what the problem is, even amidst all the zealous advocacy out there and select assertion as fact dumping dominating the Internet (and several politician's speeches) on this issue, we can have a much better local, national, and international discussion about the problem; and about what the affects of the problem might be.
Until we do that, we can't. Or, at least, we certainly, aren't.
