Oregon teacher's pitch

Will forwarded this link to me. Thanks Will! It is a very interesting presentation about taking action against global warming. I encourage you to take a look and then to respond to what you see. I think he makes a very strong, compelling arguement which should be passed along to everyone, especially as I sit here with my windows wide open enjoying the 45 degree January weather.
However, you should also note that not everyone agrees with this perspective and the truth is the science behind global warming is incredibly complicated and in its infancy. You will need to make up your own minds about whether or not global warming exists. You do that by reading as much as you can and finding evidence for yourselves as to what the reality is.

I sent that to all my friends, even the one with the anti-environmental one. He stated a great case and I think the way he presented it, with such thoroughness, that no one can argue against it. It was a logical argument that left out all the prejudice for either side. I also of course agree with the conclusion.

Wow that video really made me think. I agree with his theory of global warming. That teacher is really convincing when it comes to proving global warming exists. I really do not like global warming at all, I need some snow! So far this is the worst Winter ever snow-wise and I blame humans and global warming =[

Thank you for your comments. It is a hard thing to hear about...very distressing. So then the questions is, if you genuinely feel bad about it, then what are you, personally, doing about it?
