Does that make me a denier?

Not at all. Science has always been questioning about what we think we know about the universe and trying to come up with answers that reliably explain it. Climate is messy. But the general consensus is that the earth is going through a warming period, and the most likely candidate for the change is the rise in CO2 due to human activity. Human activity also leads to a rise in pollutants in the atmosphere, and that contributes to a phenomenon known as Global dimming - Wikipedia. I don't think I've ever seen anything about how the two might be affecting each other. Then there's the theory that if arctic ice continues melting, that will reduce the salinity of the North Atlantic, which will affect ocean currents, as a result of which the Gulf Stream will cease to bring warm water northward. The result of that would be a global ice-age.

So there's a lot of contradictory information out there. It seems to me, that many of the theories about what's going on tend to be a bit "isolationist". That is they only look at what's occurring in that one specific area (e.g. global dimming), without considering how other factors might affect the entire system. Trying to get one's head around everything, and how they all interrelate, is certainly outside my comprehension level.
