OK, everyone likes to talk about saving the environment but what are people who believe in global warming doing personally to reduce global warming? Recycling? Skipping flying?

SC, can you believe it!?
Yes, the biggest driver of the warming is the greenhouse effect - the CO2 and other gases that are increasing in the atmosphere cause the heat to be reflected back to the planet, rather than radiated out into space. That increased CO2 in the atmosphere is being absorbed into the oceans and causing it to acidify, it's directly measurable.

And, global warming folks keep changing the narrative. Hot house effect; that is how it started. Then we were going into another ice age back in the 80's. Then they went back to warming and the ice cap is melting and the oceans are rising. Now we are back to a coming ice age.
Level headed scientists have always contended that the global climate goes through cycles over long periods of time and we do not have to collect punitive taxes because of it.
