  3. Climate Change is real. Astrophysicists have valid proof of it from any planet,  with an atmosphere. Venus, Mars, earth . Gas Giants. The composition of the atmosphere of earth is changing from human monkey-activity and radionuclide flooding. It effects the climate.  Does it
    like geophysical changes did on venus. The gas giants have constant dynamic change. 
    Gas giant moons with atmospheres, have climate change. Goes right past climate denial monekeys . The ones who say the earths climate, is only affected by the suns radiant  energy and its mag field etc etc and other mumbo jumbo. Do not expect any trolls, to note this though. I notice how the worst trolls show up on topics like this

    The combination of climate change and nuclear flooding the earth with radionuclides, is bringing down systems,  faster than most can comprehend.
    The baby boomers and, paid hacks will present specious nonsense about such things are always present on articles like this.
