UPENDING THE CYCLE

Over millions of years, Earth developed a system to regulate global temperatures: Heat sources and “sinks” that balanced each other out to maintain the perfect average temperature. But because GHGs have been released in large amounts by unnatural sources, that balance has gotten completely out of whack.

    When you share basic information about greenhouse gasses and how they work, it is preferrable to politicians throwing around the buzzword term "climate change"., which just polarizes people. Yes, it's all the same thing...but how the message is delivered means a lot.
