If you believe in global climate change, do you believe the earth is getting warmer or colder? [View all]

We see record high temperatures during the summer months and record low blizzards during the winter months. We see hurricanes and tornados and forest fires.

Is it possible for the earth to do both, get colder and hotter at the same time? Or is it impossible?

In my totally unscientific opinion, I think the Earth is getting more hot than it is getting colder. Simply because of the law of gravity. We are naturally inclined to be pulled toward the Sun, I would think?

However, if the universe is still expanding, including the distance our Earth is from the Sun, then the opposite would be true. We would be getting colder climate change.

In my unscientific opinion, the cold artic fronts we are experiencing are caused more by the rotation of the Earth on its axis and the switching of the poles, which usually happen over the period of centuries.

Is climate change more than just a theory? What other proof do we have other than our own experiences?
