The climate has always been changing. The problem here is the rate of change: it all was detected since late XIX century and the industrial era. If you burn Fossil Fuels which have been kept out of the C cycle for ages, and suddenly you pour them to the atmosphere and sea, you are alterating the cycle.
Species are affected and not all are able to cope.
Animals move? right, They have a range of distribution, which won't change unless the fitness of the species is under threat.
what about plants? (the base of any trophic chain, by the way)
and what about animals that don't move? have you ever heard of corals being bleached? The bleaching is happening more frequently than ever before. Even aiming for a little change reducing the emission rate of greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere, is a good start and a first step.

Yes, even for those who think the domestication of animals for food comes back to humans.

Do I think humans cause climate change? I do not know. Although, I think it can be a coincidence that the rise of industry is at the same time as the changing climate. Also, greenhouse gasses recycle themselves, so how can they be a harm to the enviroment if they would just be recycled more and more? For example, look at China. China released lots of greenhouse gasses. Then, forest trees grew even faster than they did before because of China's emissions. Is it because we are producing them at unsustainible rates for the enviroment. Please tell me, and don't give me links I read them all.

Of course humans are the primary cause of climate change!! After all, we made it up! It's like asking if humans are the primary cause of something else that's fake and made up like spongebob.

it's called "climate change" now btw. and the climate has always been changing, the climate has warned before and cooled before. so now we know the climate change without humans.

can you prove we are causing the climate to warm? no. saying ocean water is rising or that sea species are moving (sea species are always moving) doesn't prove we are making the planet warm.

another point of mine is that we can't make the climate cool, no theory works. Obama's clean power act is projected to cool the climate by .00001 degrees or less. if we can't change the climate that way, why do you think we are changing it now? and what should we do about it.

No I suppose it's just a coincidence that the rise of levels of c02 into the atmosphere just so happens to correspond with the development of industry

We are the ones accelerating the consumtion rate of fossil fuels, releasing it to the air and sea water at a faster rate than nature can handle it. Sea species are already moving to higher latitudes and some others are desappearing, being unable to adapt. Something similar is seen in land ecosystems. We are the key factor. Our children's lives won't be as ours.
