End the subsidies to Big Oil.

Record keeping started in 1895. Has the world been around a bit longer then that? This is ridiculous.

Confront global warming? I would rather give it a big bear hug and tell the warming globe I love it! I dont wont to return to the not long ago time when huge glaciers sat over my property. That seems unappealing................

I'm waiting for the Governors of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut to all announce their will be no reconstruction post-Sandy within a mile of the ocean. If Global Warming is here, and oceans are rising and storms are more intense and more frequent, then we need to move people far away from the beach into safe areas. I realize these 3 states will lose hundreds of billions of real estate value and the property taxes that go with it, but it's not worth a single human life to ignore Global Warming just to be able to tell your friends you live "on the beach" instead of "near the beach."

erikj3...what subsidies exactly? Can you name any other than standard business deductions? And can explain what small oil is? And how are your bikes going to be built and sent to you in the future. How are you planning to heat your home? Wood heat like Denver has had to ban?

Science 101. 1 - The earth is not a sphere, it is wider at the equator than the poles. 2 - The earth does not spin in space, it wobbles. As it wobbles, true [magnetic] north shifts. 3 - The continental plates continue to shift each year. 4 - The sun's heat takes approximately 100,000 years to migrate from its core to its surface and cycles every eleven years or so and does not heat the earth with the same force from one day to the next. 5 - Current estimates have the earth aged at 16+ million years. Perhaps the human species is not as significant in the universe as some would have us believe.
