Bill Nye, Isaac Asimov, Richard Alley... Our biggest challenge presents perspective on what we can do in response to what can easily be seen as one of our greatest challenges. Global Warming.
The National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council, Board on Atmospheric Science and Climate have produced this video to illustrate the current state of understanding pertaining to climate change.
It might not be such a good idea to recycle all paper. At least until the BPA (Bisphenol A), a substance that may have harmful health effects is banned from more sources. Cash register receipts are prevalent in thermal printed receipts that you receive during purchases
Ken Cuccinelli has taken it upon himself to crusade against the perils of trusting science to defend the fallacy of his opinion to support his agenda; even his opinion has already been shown to be factually wrong. Yes ladies and gentleman, Ken Cuccinelli is a politician.

While the 'Greenhouse Effect' has been known for nearly 200 years it was not until the 1950's with the aid of studies funded by the US military that the major components of the theory were well understood. This largely had to do with understanding the atmospheric composition in the stratosphere but there are many interesting pieces to the puzzle of climate science.
The Arctic Ice is melting at an alarming rate, which could leave the North Pole virtually ice free within 10 to 30 years. Paleoclimate analysis indicates that the Arctic has probably not been ice free for about 3 million years.
