Right now - sea levels around the world are risng at a faster rate than at any other time in the last 2,000 years. That's just the latest inconvenient truth coming from the world's leading environmental scientists And it's clear this is a result of man-made global warming - because for much of the last 2,000 years - sea levels were stable or rose at a fraction of a millimeter each year.That was until the turn of the 19th century - when we found a way to harness ancient sunlight like coal and oil for energy - and spew billions of tons of dirty greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Since then - sea levels have been rising at more than 2 millimetrs every year - and speeding up. This conclusion comes on the heels of a new report by leading oceanic scientists who warned that thanks to gloa warming and pollution - the oceans are turning more and more acidic and threatening to wipe out half of all aquatic life around the world - an extinction not seen on the planet in the last 55 million years. So given all these dire warnings of a rapidly changing planet that could kill or displace billions of people around the planet - why are our politicians not doing anything about it? And more importantly - why is our news media not holding them accountable for this inaction? Al Gore knows why. In the most recent edition of Rolling Stone magazine - Gore penned an essay titled, "Climate of Denial" on why it is that global warming is still questioned in America - and not viewed here as a fact of life as most other nations on the planet see it. And the analogy Gore uses is spot on - and it has to do with professional wrestling.
