Global Warming and Mark Twain's Simple Insight

Thomas Schueneman

“It is your human environment that makes your climate”
-Mark Twain, Following the Equator

It is true that climate change is a natural phenomenon. Therefore, for us to completely divorce ourselves from the very nature of which we derive is the height of arrogance and of folly – never a good combination.

There are consequences, good or bad, to every action taken.

Human society has an impact on, and is a part of, any climate change that is now occurring. Be it inconsequential, monumental, or apocalyptic, it can be a common sense starting point for further discussion.

Or not.

I’m just sayin’…
