Denying climate change is complete bologna, of course, and so is the fact that it has taken this long for President Obama to give the topic any real mention in a speech or public setting. He is a smart guy, so what took him so long? I am not getting my hopes up about any significant advancements in the realm of cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions, or changing the way people think about how their actions affect the world as a whole. (See don't take my gunz and I don't wanna pay no taxes for evidence of just how little we seem to care about the collective.)
