Global warming, aka "climate change", is a serious problem. Like an iceberg, we are today only seeing the smallest portion of the damage it will cause; the bulk of that damage lies in the future – and grows larger the more we fail to act.
To quote President Obama's 2015-01-21 State of the Union address:
The best scientists in the world are all telling us that our activities are changing the climate, and if we do not act forcefully, we’ll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods, and massive disruptions that can trigger greater migration, conflict, and hunger around the globe. The Pentagon says that climate change poses immediate risks to our national security.
Unfortunately, powerful forces – mostly in the petrochemical industry – are allied against taking any action that might affect their profits, and have used their considerable resources to inject false but believable arguments against global warming into the public discourse. A majority of Americans currently believe that global warming does not represent an actionable threat.
