Climate change, formerly known as global warming, is the idea that the earth's climate is undergoing a period of rapid change. The majority of the world's scientists agree that this is happening, and that it is anthropogenic (i.e. caused by humans). The administration of Donald Trump has cast doubt on this, as do the fossil fuel lobby. Most of the documents at the foot of this article dispute the reality of climate change as presented by corporate media.

Recent Weather Records

The US’s largest reservoir was reported in 2016 as having "the lowest level since it was filled in the 1930s".[1]

Temperature

Observed average temperatures have been rising, as the Greenhouse Effect would predict

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared March 2016 was the warmest March since records began in 1880.[2]

Extreme weather events

The phrase 'climate change' is used in preference to 'global warming' since it is predicted[By whom?] to amplify instability in the world's climate, resulting in more extreme events of all kinds, such as wind, temperature, atmospheric pressure, droughts, flash floods etc.

Magnetic poles

The earth's magnetic poles are undergoing a period of rapid shift. The reasons for this, and its potential consequences remain unclear. Some commentators have suggested that this may have disasterous consequences[3], but NASA wrote in 2012 that "this causes no dramatic effects, and will not lead to problems in 2012."
