Ask a climate change question

Climate-change-wisdom tries to gather clear, simple and (hopefully) unbiased information on the climate change conundrum.

We try to help you unravel the issues and separate the spin from the facts. If there is still an issue you can't fathom, the solution is here.

On this page you can ask a question on any climate change, global warming or environmental topic you like.

We will try to provide an answer that will help you make up your own mind.

Here is what to do.

Think of a topic for your question.

It need not be specific or clever, just two or three words that covers the topic of your question.

Examples of topics would be climate change, global warming, carbon price, carbon tax, climate warming, environment, or any other theme you think your question relates to.

Enter your topic in the first box.

If in doubt just enter climate change


Enter your full question in the second box.

Ask your question in your own words.

Include, where you can, an bit of an explanation for your question.

Often a description of the reason why we are curious or confused about something is a big part of finding the answer that works.

Please include where you can any explanations or extra details as to why you want an answer. This not only helps Climate change wisdom to find the best answer for you, it also gives background that other readers would find useful.

It may be that you

  • just don't understand a term, some jargon word that you hear in the media that no-one has been able to explain or

  • you have been frustrated that people keep talking around the cooler at work about the scary effects of global warming and you just don't know if any of it is true, or

  • the spin from the politicians is just too confusing, or

  • that the science seems so complicated, all those numbers and graphs are meaningless, or simply

  • that the conundrum is so crazy I just don't really want to know the truth

Whatever the reason, jot down some thoughts to support your question. No need for an essay just a couple of lines is fine.

Once you submit your question we will provide an answer that will appear below your question on a new Climate change wisdom page.

Your question and the answer help other visitors gain understanding.

You are also able to rate and comment on the answer when you next visit the page.

Climate change wisdom will moderate comments to ensure they are wholesome, healthy and constructive. But this is contentious stuff, so there may well be disagreement. This will be good too so long as the opinions of others are respected.

In the end it is informed choice that matters most.

Whenever I can I will answer the question myself.
