The public need to realise that we change our opinions on a given subject regularly, and we should allow politicians to do the same.

No big deal about my "re-evaluation". At no point was I a climate-change denier. Just dubious about how much human action was causing it.

Like I said, the extremes to which climate has swung in Earth's past suggested Mommy Nature didn't need our "help" to mess things up.

A celebrity recently (I can't recall his name) said that the global climate change we are currently experiencing was partly caused by humankind and partly due to mother nature.

Well of course it is. The climate has always been changing.
In the 60s & 70s there was worry of a new ice age.

The difference is that the effect of man is starting to push climate change in a single direction.
