When it comes to global warming, I'm just not a true believer nor an alarmist, but if you don't believe that man is a major catalyst in the climate change arena then you haven't been looking up.

Yes this vast ecosystem we call Earth is a dynamic entity which is in perpetual change and the endeavors of mankind carry much weight in the change formula. However, I don't believe our activities can compare in scope to the inner workings of the Earth or the fluctuations of solar activities in their abilities to affect change on our earthen spaceship.

Nevertheless our activities can, as with the 17 early morning vapor trails falling to earth, affect our quality of life. In this case (PHOTO) an otherwise bright and shiny early fall morning was rather dull and shadowy because of the man-made clouds overhead.
