WTH is going on with the climate?

The word climate change has been bantered around by the media for many years. There's Global Warming or do we actually have a mini ice age coming? The world wide CO2 average level was just at 400 ppm the last time I checked and still rising. Floods were experienced over much of the central portions of the US this summer and continue as we speak. Even drought plagued California has seen some rain action in the form of flooding, in recent weeks! So, what the heck is going on?

Truth be told, the climate does change all the time. It has for millions of years and will continue far into the future. Some changes are of short duration while others can go on for 800 years as witnessed by the so-call Little Ice Age in northern Europe stating in the 14th Century. Any scientists who tells you they know what's going on are likely lying. Understanding the forces at work, on a global scale, are simply to complex for even the largest computers to get a good handle on. The end result is, that will we can watch the weather, we can't really predict it very well and there is really nothing we can do about it at any rate.
