AGW Is Hurting Us Now

One of the latest tactics of the anti-science crowd is to claim that if manmade climate change were to cause any damage it wouldn't be until some time in the distant future. So, why get upset about something that won't happen for a long time, if at all? Of course, the problem with this claim is that it ignores all of the damage occurring right now due to AGW.

Here is an article that lists seven ways climate change will, and is, threatening the health of US citizens: Temperature-related illnesses and death, air quality, extreme weather, vector borne diseases, water related impacts, food and nutrition, and mental health.

And, recent research has shown climate change is causing summer conditions to arrive 10 days earlier in Europe than it did only 40 years ago. I guess nature didn't get the antiscience memo that there is no climate change.
