Climate Change

It's not very often that I agree with Bill O'Reilly, but I do agree with him (in part) on this issue. He says that while he doesn't agree with everything Al Gore says about climate change, he is glad that Gore is bringing issues to the forefront and, therefore, at least making people think about making the planet cleaner.

Personally, I think there's nothing to debate about global warming. It's happening, whether people want to believe it or not. The real debate is on what we can do to relieve it. Cleaner vehicles, cleaner factories, cleaner everything. Good starts.

As with every issue, though, it's important to get as many facts as you can before making a decision. Tonight, you can get Al Gore's side at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. Dr. Maiken Winter, a trainee of Gore's Climate Project is speaking tonight at Pitt-Bradford. She'll discuss what causes global warming and what evidence exists to indicate that it's happening; the effect warming has on global climate, ocean currents, the environment, its wildlife and people; and what people can do to combat climate change. She'll use an altered version of Gore's slide show that was used to produce "An Inconvenient Truth."

So, if you care about the debate on global warming, here's your chance to get involved.
