Guess we should stop arguing about climate change. It's real, and it's dangerous. We know this because The Associated Press has declared it so, not in an opinion piece but in the middle of a straight news story:
Some of the poorest nations feared too much of the burden to curb greenhouse gases is being hoisted onto their shoulders. They are seeking billions of dollars in aid from the wealthy countries to deal with climate change, which melts glaciers that raise sea levels worldwide, turns some regions drier and threatens food production.
But don't panic. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has everything under control:
Jackson said the U.S. would take "reasonable efforts" and also "meaningful, common sense steps" to cut emissions, but didn't provide specifics.
Well, we don't need specifics if they're going to use "common sense," do we? Everything is obviously in good hands, so let's just go back to sleep.
Oh, a small favor, please. Would half of you kill yourselves? That will cut C02
