Remember climate change?

With all the news around, be it events in the Middle East or how Obama is faring in the US or Prince William's engagement, etc. etc., the topic of climate change, so much a topic of discussion some time back, has been off the media agenda. Post the effectively failed conferences in Copenhagen and Cancun, climate change seems to have become a big yawn.

Reading this recent piece in naturenews should disabuse anyone that climate change isn't an issue confronting all of us.

"Climate change may be hitting home. Rises in global average temperature are remote from most people's experience, but two studies in this week's Nature1,2 conclude that climate warming is already causing extreme weather events that affect the lives of millions. The research directly links rising greenhouse-gas levels with the growing intensity of rain and snow in the Northern Hemisphere, and the increased risk of flooding in the United Kingdom."
