Is Climate Change really debatable?

The media would like you to think so, so would the Bush administration and various other government worldwide who don't want to rock the status quo but looking at this graph and realising what it means is damn scary.

If the ice caps melt at the rate they're going at (the thick black line apparently shows actual figures as recorded by satellite images) then we mightn't have any ice cap left by as soon as 2020.

And the thing is individuals acting alone can't make enough difference to change that, it's got to be countries, governments, laws/practices, different ways of doing things. Now is the time to write to your MP, petition your government to do something more than the vague promises they put about to get that "green vote".

Today so far I have - written to my MP, my County Councillor (about cycling and allotment provisions), my District Councillors (about local common and allotments) am formulating letter for my MEP's in the European Parliament. Also signed up for the below.

I’m going to be helping to Recharge the Media in December, to make sure the media and the government get the message about climate change.
