Today’s “news” that the earth is warmer than it’s been for a wicked long time (!) and that humans are a big cause of that warming (!!) makes me wonder: how long will it take until this is widely accepted as a fact of life and not a headline-worthy debate? How many scientific studies need to come out?

It’s not entirely a rhetorical question. How long do you think it will take? I say 5-6 more years.
