Global warming is finally being taken seriously, and with a new administration coming in, hopefully more will be done to cut greenhouse gas emissions with dispatch, which has not been the case for all too long. There are still too many leaders all over the world who refuse to admit this is a deadly problem.

Americans can be the leaders in efforts to solve the problem of global warming and save ourselves while doing it.
