Re: “Burger King Calls Global Warming "Baloney"

Humans have profoundly changed local and global environments. Global warming is a term that describes the planet-scale trend; climate change includes examining local scale variation against that trend. If you simply want to deny reality, it's a right that represents one of the great things about our country!

For those seeking an actual understanding of the issue, I've posted our energy use from various sources over the last two centuries (from the US DOE's 2006 Annual Energy Review) online at:

I've also posted information showing the reality of global warming, and some consequences measured in other organisms:

Plots showing increasing sea levels, too:

We need to separate the fact of human-caused climate change from the compromises needed to ameliorate it's future problems. What shall we do to ameliorate future problems? Some people say we should do nothing, others urge a complete ban on fossil fuels today. Our large-scale food production depends on the climate staying constant where our food is grown today. As the climate changes, insect pests and plant pathogens find new habitable areas of the globe, perhaps in these agricultural areas. Humans have experienced potato famines and droughts. Climate change brings on new risks. If you argue for minimal responses to address climate change, how confident are you that no problems will arise? What is an acceptable risk?
