    It's real, and those

    that deny it (big money) are on the wrong side of history. Even if it wasn't real, the mere idea of global warming should inspire us to take action and help prevent doing further damage to the earth, maybe to some extent reverse some of the damage. Ignorance is not an excuse, we...
