The climate crisis is getting worse, and every day we do not take serious action to curtail the ongoing heating of our planet makes it more difficult to reverse this trend. Earth scientists have the facts about global warming, but it is not something that has generated the concern it should in the general public.

It is too bad the sky is not turning orange as we continue to pump carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Maybe that would generate the serious attention that global warming deserves. Dramatic action is called for before it is too late for all humanity. The phrase "out of sight, out of mind" will lead to the demise of all of us if we don't take collective action very soon.
