Global warming?

The last time NYC experienced a January with no measurable snow was 75 years ago.

Yet in other parts of the country, this winter has been harsh.

Maybe you can dismiss it as an anomaly. But maybe you can't.

What can we, as individuals do to counteract global climate change? We can demand from our leaders better, more progressive policies. We can demand that there be regulations against doing business with countries (like China) that don't have solid environmental policies in place. We can stop being so dependent on our cars and demand better public transportation in places like California. We can demand campaign finance reform, so oil lobbyists have no power in Washington.

There are lots of things we can do. More ideas?
