EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy is in Europe for five days to promote the administration's Climate Action Plan.
The Pope is expected to release a major Encyclical on the Environment and Global Warming later this year. We find it hopeful that the Vatican, and Pope Francis in particular, plan to use their considerable influence to bring awareness to the dangerous effects of Human Caused Global Warming.
We believe this is the single most critical issue facing humanity. We absolutely must come to terms with the fact that we are degrading this planet's ability to support human population. If we don't change course very soon our children and grandchildren will pay a heavy price for our refusal to act. Global Warming is real, it is human caused, it's happening now and it's deadly. Not only that, the global poor are, as usual, the most vulnerable.
