The Internet is full of information about climate change. So much so, that it can become overwhelming very quickly. There is also a lot of incorrect information out there.
We have a unique position here in the United States. There are powerful interests that are not interested in upsetting the status quo of our fossil fuel based economy. As a result, much effort and money have been spent to seed doubt about the existence of climate change. This doubt has given much of the general public a false-equivalency, pitting the facts of climate against the belief in these facts. When 97% of the scientists that study climate change agree that human activity is the cause, it would be wise to listen.
