Hot, and No Debate.
It barely bears mentioning, but mention it I will--the National Academy of Sciences released a now widely- publicized paper on Wednesday that highlights two facts:
1. Global warming is indisputably happening.This will not begin to stop the big oil lobby from their denials, but, based on the press this report is getting, we may now have reached the point where serious journalists will no longer say the question is open. Give Al Gore some credit on that score, too.
2. It's hotter now than it has been 400 years.
