The signs of climate change are there, we just need to pay attention. Weather patterns are shifting, 100-year floods are now a common occurrence, while drought and loss of water-sheds are as well.
Climate change is happening.
More Americans than ever believe that anthropogenic climate change is here.

Climate change is not a joke. It will affect everyone’s lives across the globe. No one is immune, no matter how much money he/she has.
Climate change will displace millions of people living in low-lying areas (Pacific islands, Bangladesh, Floridians). It will affect a myriad of resources from ocean fish stocks, to the ability to grow food, to the migration patterns of various animals.
While I do applaud talks and action on carbon-emissions reduction and renewable-energy; talks and treatises are only a start. To date however, not nearly enough has been done or is being done about agricultural greenhouse gas and carbon emissions.
As I’ve mentioned in number of other Huffington blog posts, the animal agriculture industry creates as much greenhouse gases as the entire transportation sector; and is on the rise with a larger global population craving more animal products and with the high level of food waste that occurs in our爱上海论坛
