Letter: Take heed of latest global climate report

On May 6, 2014, 300 of our best and brightest climate scientists released this year's report on the global climate of last year. Yes, it's still warming up. In fact it's accelerating. We have warmed more from the 1980s till now, than we did from the 1890s till the 1980s.

Do you believe in the science that helped develop computers. doctors, medicine, cellphones, cars, TVs. radios, quantum mechanics, Newtonian physics or the general theory relativity? Well, it's not that complicated. All we have to do is avoid the urge to be stupid. There's no easy way out of it. Unless we want to fight extinction, we must burn less fossil fuels and make less babies. We are not a species in danger of extinction. The lifestyle of our species is our danger of extinction.
