CNN Video on "Climate Deniers" Ice Sculpture at the Capitol
As global temperature records continue to tumble, attacks on climate science and scientists have been rebuffed by multiple investigations; and the National Academies of Sciences have solidified the scientific basis for action on climate change. To symbolize these circumstances and their impacts on climate change deniers, the youth coalition Consequence staged an event at the U.S. Capitol yesterday (15 July 2010) that featured a giant "Climate Deniers" ice sculpture that rapidly melted in the Washington, DC, heat and humidity. See CNN's video on the event.
