Global Warming: Becoming Harder to Ignore

On January 6, 2007, in NYC the temperature rose to 70. Most people wouldn't complain about that in the middle of winter. I personally find that incredibly terrifying. People, global warming is happening and it is happening faster than anticipated. You can claim that is a cyclical offbalance in nature, that every few hundred years the temperature shifts, like the naysayers claim. Or you own up to the reality that we as a species are destroying our planet and that our wanton disregard and reckless abuse have finally caught up to us. This is not a political issue and needs to stop being treated as such. Everyone needs to come together and forge a viable solution to this very pressing problem. Do yourself a favor, go see An Inconvienant Truth and visit www.stopglobalwarming.org.

I do think global warming is a problem, but I've heard that the recent warm weather in the Northeast is actually due to El Nino.

Al Gore and Richard Brenson are pledging $25 million towards finding answers for global warming. I read that the documentary "Inconvenient Truth" is going to be part of the curriculum for children in England. Meanwhile our goverment is half assed about accepting it at all.

That's good to hear. I read that Al Gore is also planning a series of concerts all over the planet called Live Earth for this summer, so I look forward to that. The government's respone has just been appalling, although in Bush's last State of the Union, he begrudgingly acknowledged it's existence by referring to "chaning global climates" after denying it for so long, so I guess that's some form of progress.

Yes I was schocked that he actually acknowledged it. Now it will not be long until the republicans start saying that it was their idea to do something about it.
