Let’s snuggle the Earth today

April 21, 2010
By APRIL DIODATO, OBSERVER Lifestyles Editor

Today, April 22, 2010 marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Try as many might to deny that the Earth is in some serious trouble, it's ridiculous to dismiss climate change completely. One of the best articles I've read recently on the subject I discovered through the Huffington Post, which linked me to the The Guardian's (guardian.co.uk) interview with renowned 90-year-old scientist James Lovelock. He acknowledges the "good" skeptics have actually done scientists a service (but the crazy skeptics, on the other hand, not so much). We need to start doing our part to effect change aggressively, he explained, however and this was my favorite part "I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change," Lovelock said. That's some real talk right there.
