Today we live in a world that is rapidly changing. And the rate of change is accelerating. The men and women that study the natural world have reached an overwhelming consensus on the cause of this change. It is the burning of fossil fuels, increasing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by almost 40%. Every scientific society in the world, every National Academy of Science, and every major university, has published policy statements to this effect. So why are their people that are questioning the science? Their objections have little to do with the evidence, rather it is the protection of the present people that are profiting off of the use of the fossil fuels that they are trying to protect. They have yet to offer a single acceptable theory as to why the CO2 is not the cause of the present warming. Nor can they explain the melting of the glaciers and polar caps by denying the fact of the warming. It is time for us, as a society, to address this problem. If we fail to do so, we doom our children and grandchildren to some very difficult times.
