    Who would have thought the U.S. would one day not only recognize climate change and its causes, but take significant measures against it.
    Obama's new measures will accelerate the transition to renewable, less polluting forms of energy production, while reducing not only CO2 but several other contaminants such as acid gases, arsenic, nickel and chromium. Those plants also emit 50 per cent of the mercury spewed out in the U.S.
    Time to stop using the atmosphere as an unlimited garbage disposal site. Polluters must pay.

    There's no greater challenge to the future of the planet than lying, power-hungry politicians trying to use fake climate change to tax and regulate us all into poverty and subservience.
