Climate change isn't a computer model, a fuzzy prediction, a cute picture of polar bears on shrinking icebergs, or some far-off, distant threat that people who aren't born yet will have to deal with. It's here, now and it's disrupting our lives.

It's affecting food prices through extended droughts and flooding basements in extreme rainfall events the types of dry and wet extremes that scientists have been telling us for years would be part of a changing, warming world. Now we can see these things with our own eyes, out our own windows.

It's causing farmers to plant earlier. Bird lovers are watching habitats shrink and change. Lobstermen are seeing the corrosive effects of both warming waters and ocean acidification change their way of life. Fire chiefs are facing the stark reality of bigger, faster wildfires lasting year round instead of contained to seasons.[60 Million American Birdwatchers Chase Ever-Shrinking Quarry (Op-Ed)]

What is extraordinary is that nearly everyone can now sense that the artificially contrived science "debate" about whether climate change is real is ending for good creating space for the more logical, rational discussion about America's proper role in dealing with a significant, growing and increasingly urgent problem.

Indeed! People are beginning to realize that anthropoglobalclimategenicwarm ingchange is a scam on par with "If you uh uh uh Like your Doctor, you can uh uh uh keep your doctor!" I eagerly await the rampant disclaimers from the genius types: "but weather isn't climate!" Yeah. And cooling is warming. And the sun comes up in the west.
