Panel’s Warning on Climate Risk: Worst Is Yet to Come. A United Nations report warned that climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control.
To give that a little more pizzazz, watch this trailer for “Years Of Living Dangerously” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jessica Alba, Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, Don Cheadle, Michael C. Hall (“Dexter!”), and Lesley Stahl, among others. If it grabs you, watch the first episode.
If we all took an hour to vote November 4 — even though most Americans usually don’t vote in mid-term elections — we could at least wrest the climate-change gavel out of the hands of a climate change denier by flipping the House blue. That would be a start.
