President Barack Obama states a good fact; climate change is affecting the world tremendously. The glaciers are melting at an astonishing rate and the surface temperature of the world is only increasing. Currently, scientists argue that climate change intensified because of human activity; however, the circumstance is quite the opposite. Global warming refers to the rising surface temperature, whereas climate change includes warming and the effects - like melting glaciers, heavier rainstorms, or more frequent drought (Kennedy and Lindsey). Human produced gases play a factor in global warming but humans are not responsible for climate change because global warming only represents one aspect of climate change. Although human activity plays a part in global warming, human activity is not primarily responsible for climate change because the fluctuations of the sun’s heat is responsible for the increased surface temperature, the levels of human produced CO2 do not correlate with the increase in surface temperature and the computerized climate models display inadequate and incorrect information. Human activity is consistently alleged with warming the earth’s surface by 1-1.4°F throughout the 20th century; however, the main advocate is shown to be the sun (ProCon). In a span of about 10,000 years, the suns period of which its sunspots
