Quote of the Week

Obama had tough words for those who would deny that climate change is a problem. "I am willing to work with anybody…to combat this threat on behalf of our kids," he said. "But I don't have much patience for anybody who argues the problem is not real. We don't have time for a meeting of the Flat-Earth Society."
