For instance, "Jay Lehr, a groundwater hydrologist, assured the Heartland conference that carbon emissions had 'zero effect' on planetary temperatures and oceanic levels.

We’ve got to stop them,' he said."
The Christian Science Monitor article is a fascinating read; I urge you to add it to your list. Be informed; be engaged. There's no time to lose, and powerful forces are fighting back against the fight for Mother Earth.
