That’s a big if, and so I’d like to begin recording my own data so that I can make my own definitive argument about any changes. My big problem with recording my own data is the cost involved. It could be rediculously expensive to record carbon levels, daily temperatures, precipitation, etc, never mind the difficulty in calibration and maintenance of the equipment.

I do have an unconventional way of measuring any possible change: Mother Nature. She has provided a wealth of natural measuring devices all around me.
