I don’t always keep up with what’s in "the news.”
I gather, however, that there is a storm of climate change denial happening out there.
This post is just to let readers know about a response to this nonsense.
There is a list serve that has tons of intelligent conversation about the environmental crisis in general & the climate crisis in particular. It comes from the Environmental Educators of Ontario (EEON).
So. I heard about this “Elevate the Climate Conversation: Climate Response” Web site there.
The person who started the site says:
“This activity is impacting public opinion over climate change. According to a recent article in the Globe & Mail, public skepticism of climate change is growing. The doubters do disservice to climate facts.
We need to fight back. I’ve just launched Climate Response (www.climateresponse.ca), which calls on all of us to help elevate the public conversation on climate change and climate change solutions. Climate Response offers handy at-your-fingertips facts and stats to help support your arguments when writing to the press. It also provides members with timely notices on articles dealing with these issues.
The only way we will beat this is strength in numbers.
Please check it out!!
Deniers are such…Flat Earthers. To put it very, very politely. (Too politely! Criminal is more like it…)
By all means, make use of the site, please!!
P.S. Must-read book: Climate Cover-up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming, by James Hoggan (with Richard Littlemore).
Quote of the Day w. this post: “So-called global warming is just a secret ploy by wacko tree-huggers to make America energy-independent, clean our air and water, improve fuel-efficiency of our vehicles, kickstart 21st century industries, and make our cities safer and more livable. Don’t let them get away with it!” – Chip Giller, founder of Grist.org
