    Nuclear, solar, cow flatulence.  None of it means anything if we can't even convince people that global warming is real, is occurring right now and is a very serious problem.  I don't see how we can ever work towards a solution when no one is willing to admit that there is a problem.

    Get people to understand what is happening out there and all options for a fix will be open.  Otherwise it's business as usual.

      besides global warming.  Air and water pollution, for two.

      More than two-thirds (68%) of US citizens want something done to combat global warming, including more than half of Republicans.  Lots of people are "willing to admit that there is a problem".  It's just that the people who are not willing to admit to it have a lot of money and can buy really big amplifiers.  And they can bribe give campaign contributions to a lot of politicians.  

      Renewable energy brings national global security.
