Myth #2. Earth’s climate has always changed.

One thing is sure, the climate has changed a lot over the course of Earth’s 4.5-billion-years. We definitely can’t say that it hasn’t. However, we’ve never seen such rapid warming are we’re seeing today, and it definitely can’t be explained by natural cycles of warming and cooling.

Sadly, things are changing so fast now, that the kind of changes we should have seen in hundreds of thousands of years are now happening in decades. Additionally, global temperatures have never been this high as they are now.

Let’s not forget that 17 of the 18 warmest years we ever recorded have taken place since 2001, so you can understand why things are not moving in the right direction. Rapid warming is linked to the increasing levels of carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere, which is the result of the industrial revolution.

Therefore, climate change is the result of human activity, because of certain activities such as burning gas, coal, and oil to produce energy, cutting down trees, and other such practices.
