    It is a great illustration, but I can already here the retort from the deniers. It’s a pity that this kind of thing has impact on the already engaged and only entrenches “contrarians” even further.

    It brings to mind the words of Dave Angel. ” Mother Earth is heating up like a dirty great big cake and if we’re not careful the icing’s going to melt. The world is turning, and we’re not learning.”
