Climate change, myth or fiction?

The debate is heated regarding climate change. Do we have an impact on the warming climate or is it something that we have no power over? I am not sure if we will ever find the true answer, but that does not mean that we can not become a more conscious consumer. Garrett Fitzgerald, a speaker at a community meeting on climate change in Oakland said "Some of you may have seen the movie The Day After Tomorrow," he says, referring the the Hollywood doomsday blockbuster. "It probably won't be that bad. But there's plenty of reason to say we need to be cautious. Don't worry about climate change's effects on the poor cute polar bear - worry about climate change for yourself." Of course this is only one persons opinion on the subject, but his ideas are warranted. We all need to think about the effects that we have on the present and the future.
Everything that we touch is impacted in some way. So pickup your garbage, recycle, drive less; walk more, turn your thermostat down and wear a sweater. These are just a few simple things that can be done to possibly make the future a little bit better.
