I always say that mantra number two for a climate advocate is “Yeah, we have to do that too.” As in, “We need to be more efficient AND we need to build wind farms AND we need to build transmission lines to support the wind farms AND we need to build sidewalks and transit so people can drive less, etc . . . ” You get the point.
And mantra number one is: “The scary part is . . .” because every time you think you have seen it all, something worse and new comes along.
Arctic temperatures in the 1990s reached their warmest level of any decade in at least 2,000 years, new research indicates. The study, which incorporates geologic records and computer simulations, provides new evidence that the Arctic would be cooling if not for greenhouse gas emissions that are overpowering natural climate patterns.
Will this motivate you to take action?
