Elliot Poger: No denying climate change

May 16, 2014 

Antarctica is melting. San Diego is on fire (and in May, not fire season). What evidence, if presented, would convince politicians that climate change is real and that it’s time to start planning for it?

What would it take for residents to demand that our elected representatives take action? Is there some other planet our kids are going to live on that I don’t know about?
