Climate Change is Real

Required reading for WaPo columnist and know-it-all George Will and other conservatives and climate change deniers is this story on CNN about a rural village in Alaska that is being threatened by the environmental impact of warming arctic temperatures. Just because we cannot see or feel the effects of climate change here in in the US doesn't mean it is a hoax or gimmick that Al Gore and the Democrats thought up in order to take more of your tax dollars. In fact, the people here in the continental US may be the last ones to feel the impact - but the indigenous people in Alaska, the poor in African, and other smaller countries and islands around the world, are already starting to feel the impact and will be the first to be displaced or even killed when sea levels reach the tipping point. We need to stop having this "not in my backyard" attitude. It may not be in your backyard yet - but it will be if we don't do anything about it.
