Not every community is ignoring Climate Change:

 

Some communities recognize the dangers of ignoring and dismissing Climate Change and are doing something about it.

We have a great challenge before us: the more imminent the consequences of Climate Change, the more this issue is being ignored by the press and even our President, as he failed to bring it up in his State of Union address. 

A chance has been lost to highlight and education the public on the greatest challenge of our times—an environment changing and moving inexorably towards a tipping point.

Community battles climate change "Two organizations recently launched an energy conservation program this week to show how community efforts can lessen climate change in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The Superior Watershed Partnership and Land Trust and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore staff hope to prevent 165,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere and save Alger County residents about 1.7 million kilowatt hours.
