When I started this blog, I purposely tried to remain non-political because few discussion items cause as much heartburn between otherwise good friends and acquaintances as politics. But I have to say that the greatest issue our descendants will eventually face is the impact of global warming. If not directly, then indirectly as rising sea level floods our friends in other low-lying countries.
I am very satisfied after watching a program on PBS this afternoon featuring Carol Browner, President Obama's adviser on Energy and Climate Change. On that program was this video. How great is America that 4 students from another country can produce such a video and appear on a talk show with one of the president's advisers?
What is especially remarkable is we went 8 years with no serious or substantial discussion from presidential advisers about climate change. We have experienced a fantastic change. It is important to respect our conservative friends' point of view. But it is vitally important we get to the business of addressing climate change.
