Chicken Little was no communications guru. But what happens when the sky really is falling—or just as bad, when it’s heating up?

The stubborn truth of global warming just keeps coming ("Animals, entire forests could migrate") and coming ("Melting ice may create shipping shortcut") and coming ("Victoria, 2104: Welcome to the tropics").

When you get weary of this truth, don’t tune it out—do something. For example, you can join Washington’s Clean Car Campaign, an effort to opt in to California’s emission standards, by emailing [email protected] with the subject Clean Cars. (The campaign website will be up next week.)

Because unlike Chicken Little’s problem, we can fix this one.
