Is "Climate Change" real?

Is "Climate Change" real? Or is it, as some would have us believe, due to unusual fiery sun spots?

During the span of the previous 800,000 years of the planet Earth, the "parts per million" [ppm] of carbon dioxide [CO2] has never exceeded 300 ppm.

According to research by the US government's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,[NOAA] the ppm of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere has reached 400 ppm. This was established in May of 2013 during a one-week period in Hawaii. What is remarkable about the increase of the 100 ppm, is that it took place during the last 100 years.

The majority of global scientists predict that a further increase in the Earth's temperature will intensify the occurrence and ferocity of storms such as we have just witnessed in the Philippines, where millions of people have lost everything, including their homes, and thousands have died, being crushed by building collapse, and tsunami-like crests of water.

In general, global scientists have accepted the fact that the rise in the Earth's temperature is due to the ever-increasing use of fossil fuels.

It is estimated that projected production of the oilsands in Canada by the year 2022 will use up the equivalent of 300 Olympic pools of water each and every day! Tailing lakes created to store the toxic waste caused by processing the oil sands presently already cover over 150 square kilometres of Alberta's landmass, mostly in the northern areas of the province. Ten years from now, the projected oilsands process will yield an amount of toxic tailings that would fill the pool at the West Edmonton Mall, [the largest in the world] 3o times each day!

Eliminating the tree growth to access the oilsands would, on a daily basis, increase as much greenhouse gas in the atmosphere as 22 million cars per day on our roads.
