This will only be temporary if Big Coal continues to blow up the mountains. Please, everyone--turn off the TV, the lights, small appliances, etc. when you are not actively using them!

One would think the Nature Conservancy would know that the climate change we should be preparing ourselves for is a long cooler period. Even NASA agrees about that..
