Evidence of climate change is all around us.  While no single phenomenon prove its existence, one has only to look at the recently redrawn frost maps for gardeners, the changing patterns of bird migration, and the shrinking Arctic sea ice to know that we live in a warming world.

It is settled science that over the last two centuries, the burning of fossil fuels is the primary cause of global warming.  However, the coal and petroleum industries and their political allies have gone to great lengths to instill doubt about this in the American public.

Disbelieving or doubting climate change conveniently allows us to continue on with "business as usual" - our energy intensive life styles.  But thoughtful people are increasingly realizing that taking this path is both unjust and unsustainable.

Under this Climate Science tab are resources which will inform you about climate change and the many paths which can be taken to reduce its impact.  The Everything is Connected page features links to a host of other related topics related topics.
