There is no single issue that has brought the world together and split it apart as Climate Change has. There is no doubt that the world's climate is changing - it has never stopped changing. But what are the factors driving that change and are we partly to blame? Be sure to scroll down past the General Pages and on to the Effects and possible Solutions to this divisive issue.
