I think that climate change is both, natural and man-made we are coming out of an iceage so the earth is bound to warm up until the temperature gets to what it used to be, i reackon that humans are simply speeding up the process, therefore we are kinda to blame for the global crisis

I really enjoyed working on this site. Thanks very much! It's brilliant and I hope it continues to keep up the good work. The thing that I would say is that some of the climate changes haven't actually changed from anything. Sort out your info!!!
