I always get a chuckle out of folks who pull some random study discovered in the hinterlands of the internet that “proves” global warming is a myth. The proof is right in front of you, data (read “facts”) back it up, and the consensus among scientists is that Global Warming is real, we caused it, and we should probably fix it before we all die a horrible death.


How’s this for a scientific consensus? The American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scientific society with a membership of 121,200 scientists and “science supporters” globally, just released an 18-page report confirming that the world is at growing risk of “abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes” due to climate change.
