California gets dire warning on global warming, via Environmental News Network

Roads and bridges, the water supply, agriculture, public health and even winter skiing all will be affected by global climate change, said the report by University of California-Berkeley agricultural
and resource economics professors David Roland-Holst and Fredrich Kahrl.

This is the first time a major academic institution has studied the link in economy and environment, and the results are not good. It was already announced that we spend $28 Billion per year in health issues due to poor air quality. This however is estimating that real estate losses could be in the trillions due to sea level increases.

I know we are a state that cares about this and does the right thing, but this is a proverbial diagnosis from the doctor that we have to change NOW!
