Global Warming? You Think?
By: Rowan Wolf
After decades of denial and inaction about global warming, we seem to be reaping the the harvest of our folly. Here is a sampling of effects and issues that have made the news in the last year. When you hear one more person ask whether global warming is real; or someone saying that it is debatable; or one more meterorlogist deny that hurricanes are probably not impacted by global warming, you have plenty of ammunition to fight lies and denials.
