    TROLL here is a link for you from my BAD09-Climate Change post. The 2009 report on Global Climate Change Impacts on the United States from the NCDC based in Asheville NC. It is science which has a liberal bias I know, but you just might want to know the facts you need to deny.

    I couldn’t stop thinking about water, so that became my subject for today’s Blog Action Climate Change post on Gardenhelp:

    I wrote an overview of the impact climate change has on Ohio gardeners. There’s alot of doubt and apathy in the area where I live and I’m hoping by keeping it simple I’ll convert one or two. I’m wondering if it will take the demise of the buckeye tree for Ohioans to wake up and feel heat.

    I’m just wondering when, in the Earth’s long history, the climate was not changing?

    @ Archie– “The term climate change is often used interchangeably with the term global warming, but according to the National Academy of Sciences, the phrase ‘climate change’ is growing in preferred use because it helps convey that there are other changes in addition to rising temperatures.” definition courtesy of the EPA. Also, I’m sure, in response to people like Greg above who say things like, “There ain’t no such thing as global warming! It was real cold here last night!” And yes, I’ve heard people say things like that and they were completely serious. “I’m just sayin’.”

    Well Archie in the earth’s long history human beings have only been around for a speck of time. It didn’t really matter if the climate changed and species went extinct or through hell as their environment changed around them. It matters now that we are here to feel the effects don’t ya think?

    My little bit for Blog Action Day is a post about my experience as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Panama and the books I recommend for gaining perspective on world food issues affected by climate change.

    Tried to post a comment on Foy’s blog. It is very cool. (But, I’m biased because I love books and it is a book list) The books they mention are all fantastic, and I read many of them this summer. They all changed my perspective and gave me lots of info about how to change the way I EAT, which will have a big impact on my individual little environmental footprint.
