Global Warming & Climate Change

Direct correlation between global temperature rise & an increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

Let Science Be Science

I have yet to understand why and how the subject of global warming & climate change became so polarizing and political.  This is a science problem.  End of story.

We've Tackled Science Issues Before

Acid rain that crippled the Adirondacks?  Fixed.

Ozone hole?  Fixed.

Bald Eagle population crash due to DDT?  Fixed.

We can do this, but only through education and action.

Climate Central

Climate Central is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that researches and reports on climate change and its impacts on us.

They don't advocate, they don't lobby.  They let science be science.  "Just the facts, ma'am."

Here's more on who they are and what they do.

I'll be posting articles and news from Climate Central and other unbiased sources regularly in the section below.

As always, if you have any questions, email me
