How did this become a political issue? Can’t both parties agree that we need clean air, clean water, and stable temperatures? And it’s not a matter of Democrat vs. Republican. There have been Democrats that voted against a carbon tax and there was a Republican president (Ronald Reagan) who fixed the ozone layer.
Ultimately, this is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of science. And it’s a pretty darn important one. Because of that, we will have a guest speaker visiting tomorrow from Brown University, one of the top schools in the country. He has a Ph.D. in climatology, and is an expert in global warming. We will get to hear his presentations and then ask him our questions. I ask you to come to class tomorrow with a sharp and open mind. The truth about global warming could change the course of history.
