burningcarThe good news is more and more people believe that Global Warming is real and caused by human activity. The bad news is – Global Warming is real.

According to Reuters:
1. 2006 is set to be the world’s sixth-warmest year since records began 150 years ago

2. The ten warmest years have all occurred in the last 12 years

3. Global warming is a contentious issue, but most scientists now agree that world average temperatures may rise by between two and six degrees Celsius this century due to emissions of so-called greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, released by burning fossil fuels for power and transport.
Time to park the car and start walking! Or, at the very least, start burning Biodiesel or Ethanol instead of fossil fuel. And buy only locally grown food. And locally manufactured goods, which means stay away from those big box stores. More ideas on what you can do here.
