Incontrovertible Proof of the Existence of Global Climate Change

A frozen confectionery treat melts on a late Spring day at the seashore. Proof enough for me. Stopping despoiling the atmosphere. Walk, ride a bike, take the stairs. Inflate your tires, turn down your air conditioning. Enjoy a popsicle on a warm day.

Okay, this doesn't prove that the climate is getting all screwed up. But there's plenty of other evidence that human activity (that means us ... all of us) have been upsetting the feedback loop. Sure, there are natural cycles of cooling and warming and cycles of moisture and drought. But our inputs into the system have done something to mess up the balance. Take some responsibility for the problem and for the solution, too. Start by thinking about who best to vote for in the coming US elections. Don't let our world end up like this ice cream bar.
