- Marching Since: January 19, 2006
Twenty-five years ago, when the National Academy of Sciences first looked into it, global warming was a theory. Today it is a reality. The Arctic ice cap is melting. The world’s permafrost is thawing; nearly every major glacier is shrinking; the oceans are growing not just warmer, but more acidic; and plants are blooming days, in some cases weeks earlier than they used to. Many of the changes that have already taken place cannot be reversed. Meanwhile, much graver changes lie ahead if we do not act. I march because, in a very real sense, the future is now.
