Many people argue that climate change has been expedited (or even caused) by mankind. Whether or not this is the case, the Earth is warming, and a warm Earth means bad news for our snow culture.

Today, President Obama gave a speech on a solar farm in Florida, trying to push his climate change initiatives. He is urging the Senate to pass a bill that will cap carbon emissions in this country. The Obama administration has recently announced they will invest $3.4 billion of the stimulus funds with the purpose of improving energy delivery and boosting the use of renewable energy sources.

The President is facing stiff opposition, so he’s in for a dog fight on this one. “[The President is] on what appears to be a PR swing to try to boost up his own popularity to move legislation and policies that the American people don’t want, don’t need,” said Rep. Connie Mack, a Florida Republican.
