Solving Climate Change should not be a political football.

But, it is. In these extraordinary times, with many political sides fighting about Climate Change, including those who don’t even believe it is happening or due to human influence, there’s a player in the fracas that the media rarely allows to speak—Nature. If our media doesn’t learn how to objectively, accurately, and deeply go after this issue, the increase greenhouse gases in our atmosphere will warm the planet up—regardless of the political spin.

Climate bill setback forces clean development rethink | Reuters "LONDON (Reuters) - Still reeling from disappointing UN climate talks in Copenhagen in December, clean energy project developers were dealt another blow this week when U.S. Democrats lost their Senate supermajority, potentially killing a federal cap-and-trade scheme for years to come.
