Go see the movie! Global warming = the impending destruction of the world... and I'm not just saying that because I'm some sheepish college student who went to see a neat documentary. I learned little in that film, but what it did was put a picture to all the problems I've read about.
They don't seem like such a big deal in print, but when you see pictures of the water spilling over Manhattan and ice that wasn't supposed to feel the effects of Global Warming for a hundred years already gone (indeed, melted in weeks), it has a big impact.
The fact is global warming will probably flood most of Cape Cod, sea levels will rise approximately 20 feet at the current rate (and that's a somewhat conservative estimate). There is no scientific dispute about Global Warming, 100% of the real scientists agree (you know, the ones who get published).
However, we can solve Global Warming if we WORK NOW. We can't put it off 10 years, we can't even put it off five. We need projects like Cape Wind going forward desperately. We need the second wind farm. We'll need a third and forth.
We all must make sacrifices. I'm willing to make them. However, for the most part, we can have our cake and eat it too. We don't have to give up economic stimulation. We don't have to give up our quality of life. Heck, with Cape Wind, practically no one has to give up their views.... even on the Cape and the Islands... it's only a friggin thumb-print in the horizon!
We must do this now. We have no alternatives. Renewable, clean energy is the only way. We have an opportunity we can't resist - and a message to send the rest of the world: we're serious about Global Warming.
