The Cleveland Plain Dealer carried an article today about a report out of the Obama administration on climate change. The crux was that climate change is real, is advancing at an alarming rate and we need to do something about it. I agree. We, each of us in the First World, needs to cut back dramatically on our fossil fuel use. Our family bicycles or walks about 90% of the time within a five mile radius of our home. We don’t use air conditioning. We buy few items (it takes fossil fuel to manufacture most items). We are extremely sparing with lights and appliances, and we close off part of the place in the winter. And we’d do all this at the White House as well, including closing off the heating vents in the Lincoln bedroom. I mean he’s dead, right?
