Okay, so most Americans are now believing in climate change. I'm sure most of the EU is as well. One of the heaviest polluters that needs a wake up call is China.
There needs to be serious talks between our country, the EU and China. Let's face it, we only have one planet at the moment that we can live on so we better help her out.

If Obama can be believed, he verbally has acknowledged climate change. With more of a commitment from the West, there will never been any effective results.

Some people need convincing. With the worst climate weather season occurring in 2011, more people have awakened to the denials of the Big Oil and King Coal polluters lies.

Believe?!?
Like asking someone if they believe in Santa Clause?
My neighbor is a evangelical christian, and she asked me if I believe in climate change. OK, to clarify -- drastic climate change is a fact, a measurable, verifiable, quantifiable fact, and had been documented through scientific method (in many fields of study) for DECADES.
It must have been Karl Rove who spun that whole mess, and made us rational beings think that climate change was something on which we were going to vote, and maybe, if we didn't believe, climate change would just magically go away, like the boogey man under your bed....
Wow. Just the word "believe" in the context of science makes me angry. Like, "Do you believe in evolution?" I don't have to believe. It's not like the fairy tales put into religious texts: scientific theories must be tested, repeatedly, and if they don't hold up, they are discarded. Unlike some other things we are asked to believe...

Make my day!. Are we talking about oil or coal?

Upps, what did Lisa Ann sign. Are you a believer? Sorry, I saw no petition. Never mind, I make mistakes as well.
