bonafy  vb

How to Do Your Part to Fight Global Warming

I've been reading a lot on Global Warming, so I'm pretty much of an expert on the subject now, especially having studied a lot of science and stuff in school.  For instance, I've taken classes in Natural Science, Social Science, Political Science - you name it; I've probably had a science class about it.  So when it comes to science, I think it's fair to say I pretty much run with the best, and if you care to read much of the literature out there, you'll find that most of my peers are pretty much in agreement with my conclusions.  So
