Via ClimateProgress, watch this video from Peter Sinclair on the disappearance of Arctic sea ice:
If we had a media that reported the news (and not just what political parties say) the country would be convinced of the problem, and anxious to do something about it.

Sometimes, Thomas Friedman gets it exactly right. Here, he imagines a Chinese diplomat in America writing back home:
"Most of the Republicans just elected to Congress do not believe what their scientists tell them about man-made climate change. America’s politicians are mostly lawyers — not engineers or scientists like ours — so they’ll just say crazy things about science and nobody calls them on it. It’s good. It means they will not support any bill to spur clean energy innovation, which is central to our next five-year plan. And this ensures that our efforts to dominate the wind, solar, nuclear and electric car industries will not be challenged by America."
Friedman's best line:
"The Americans have replaced working to be exceptional with talking about how exceptional they still are. "
