After much ado about nothing from the climate change denialists, a new poll shows that a majority of the Americans sampled, believe Global Warming is real, and it is human caused.
So what do we do about... a majority say deal with it.

More statistical failures from the FauxNewsCorp, plus special bonus on "Fake Bimbo" Gretchen Carlson.
Oops! Further evidence of the lack of mathematical and reasoning skills in their primary audience - right-wing geezers?

Effects of Climate Change - NASA
Sorry kids, Grandma and Grandpa knew you were gonna have problems with Climate Change, but we just couldn't agree in time to do much about it. Some of you will adapt, many may not. Too bad for you. Deal with it!
As the world gathers in Copenhagen for a summit to address Climate Change, COP15, fossil fuel industry operatives are shifting into over-drive in their escalation of climate change denialism.
Apparently, a well-coordinated and well-funded, political espionage program successfully hacked into the computer systems at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia University (UK), and but failed in a botched, day-light attempt to physically break into the network at the University of Victoria - Canadian Centre for Climate Modeling and Analysis. The right-wing hype-o-sphere produced a predictable "Climate-gate" over the stolen emails from CRU. Mainstream media took the bait, briefly stirring up a tempest-in-a-teapot of over decade-old private emails, that gave a peek into the collaborative and oft contentious process of building scientific consensus, around the difficult task of visualizing complex data sets. No rational minds were changed.
Make no mistake, the dark forces of carbon, are fighting for their greedy lives. They could care less about your children's or grandchildren's future.
This campaign of confusion is no accident. As we have said before, it is wise to know your enemies. They continue to stall and defer corrective action. Much damage is done, probably irreversible for several generations to come.
The following is a Dirty Dozen list of culprits, identified by reporters at Mother Jones, who by their short-sighted actions, seem to want to kill your grandchildren or make it as difficult as possible to live a good life:
