Local Warming!

This AP article explores the impacts of global warming on California. As I have said before, the proper label for the cause behind these effects is local warming. Why? Remember "think global, act local"? The emphasis is the same here: We need to work on local action to address local effects. From the one side, reduce energy consumption; on the other, change habits to reduce the harmful effects of local warming on our lives.

Bottom Line: People tend to ignore issues at a distance and pay attention as they get closer. Local warming will get local attention and local action, and that's what we'll need if we are going to stay above water.
