The reality of catastrophic climate change doesn't seem to be getting through to people, and it's not hard to understand why. Global warming is dismissed as speculation by the President and Congress, and cited -- if at all -- by the news media in confusing tit-for-tat exchanges full of scientific jargon.
A small band of (mostly corporate-underwritten) skeptics is given equal weight with the overwhelming majority of climate scientists, and their bantering about computer models, aerosols and ice cores just confuses the public. Let the Stop Global Warming Virtual March begin to turn this situation around and make it clear to everyone that human-induced climate change is not just theory!

Feeling the Heat: Dispatches
from the Frontlines of Climate Change
Edited by Jim Motavalli, editor of E/The Environmental Magazine
FEELING THE HEAT is the missing link in global warming literature; a reporter's
book written not from the UN floor or the scientists' lab, but from the
world's "hot spots" where this dangerous shift has already
started. Instead of conjecture, it documents with vivid, on-the-spot prose the
dramatic impact of rising tides, melting glaciers, disappearing beaches and
intensifying storms on people's lives today.
