Blog for Climate Action!

I hope everyone has a great Christmas, it looks like it will be a snowy one around here. In fact, according to this study, this may be just the beginning:

Cosmic rays and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), both already implicated in depleting the Earth's ozone layer, are also responsible for changes in the global climate, a University of Waterloo scientist reports in a new peer-reviewed paper...In his research, Lu discovers that while there was global warming from 1950 to 2000, there has been global cooling since 2002. The cooling trend will continue for the next 50 years, according to his new research observations.

Perhaps it would be best to "assume the worst, and proceed accordingly." A good start would be to make pollution cool again. Dirtying up our act with irresponsible, non-innovative, unsustainable action; an approach that intrinsically addresses the long-term consequences of inaction.

Or we could do nothing.
