The author reflects on the implications of climate change as global phenomenon. While the author accepts that the temperatures around the world are increasing, he feels that there could be more causing it than just greenhouse gasses. The author also asserts that many of the solutions proposed could cause more harm than good. He also suggests the best way to cut down on fossil fuel use is to improve fuel efficiency, not in carbon taxes.
