Is climate change real?  This is the dire situation being pushed by many, mostly those that state that man is causing catastrophic change that will be irreversible.  Really?  How do they know.  The earth has been around for a very long time yet there is no recorded data that can detail climate change although science can tell us the earth has gone through many changes.

First, what is climate?  Merriam-Webster defines climate as the average course or condition of the weather at a place usually over a period of years as exhibited by temperature, wind velocity, and precipitation.
