General Motors changes their mind on global warming
How about you, now? General Motors has decided there really may be something to human-caused global warming/climate change according to this from The Huffington Post: "After getting called out by an environmental group, General Motors has pulled support from the Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based nonprofit well-known for attacking the science behind global warming and climate change.
The automaker told the Heartland Institute last week that it won't be making further donations, spokesman Greg Martin said. At a speech earlier this month, GM CEO Dan Akerson said his company is running its business under the assumption that climate change is real." Maybe our near-90 degree weekend weather helped them agree. With this, with one more large American corporation agreeing there may be something to human-caused global climate change, can US government support for worldwide controls be far behind? Companies like General Electric are on board, along with the entire insurance industry, since they're losing so much money to these catastrophic events. Then there's the American military which is already making preparations with this in mind. Let's hope American support for things like the Kyoto Treaty are nearly here.
