Happy Happy Joy Joy!

It’s Earth Day!  Why, are you wondering, do we need a day to remember the Earth?

Consider this from Global Climate Change at NASA

Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities, and most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.

Or this from Scientific American:

…the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, … finds that temperatures will rise by 1.5 to 4.5 degrees Celsius with a doubling of CO2. And the threshold for “catastrophic” climate change that would terminate lifestyles as we know it is 2 C.

Now, can we do anything about the styrofoam cups in the cafeteria?
