Global warming, although a scientific reality, is easily dismissed as an alarmist hoax by the average Joe. Of course, it is not surprising when one considers that a mere string of few a cold, chilly days can convince a person that the global warming and the climate change are not something to concern oneself with. The issue has been heavily politicized, which skews a lot of opinions, particularly in the cases where people would rather abide by the party line rather than face facts. The effects may seem perplexing, or even outright eerie, but they reside in the midst of our present as a clear indicator that the global warming is already a reality.
