My essay, An Objective View of Climate Change, is an attempt to summarize the abundance of scientific evidence, from a layman’s perspective, while concluding that our climate is indeed changing, but as I point out, one can believe in the scientific underpinnings of climate change and still be skeptical of the proposed solutions. My definition of a climate skeptic is someone who believes in the objective evidence supporting the concept of climate change, but is skeptical about the degree and timing of its adverse effects while remaining optimistic in mankind’s ability to adapt to and mitigate the challenges presented.   

I hope you enjoy reading about my journey in becoming a climate-change skeptic and in the process, learn as much as I have from my research and experience about this controversial and important topic.
