The following quote says it all about our incoming President:
Obama is stacking his Cabinet and inner circle with advocates who have pushed for deep mandatory cuts in greenhouse gas pollution and even with government officials who have achieved results at the local level.
Mandatory means that unproven fear-mongering will cost us all more than we can afford. The other statement in that article about the hottest years 'on record' are so misleading that it scares me. Are people so out of touch that they do not understand that the 'record' is such a small percentage of the life-span of the Earth as to be laughable in terms of scientific inquiry?
This is going to be an interesting 4 years.
