Climate Change Timeline Shows Ongoing Battle

How did stacks of peer reviewed science showing climate change to be man-made end up equaling entrenched doubt by many Americans?

It might have something to do with deep pocketed special interests and partisan rancor.  Frontline's The Politics of Climate Change is an interesting timeline that can can shed some light.

Warning: If you are inclined toward science-based policy and rational behavior, you may find the timeline annoying.

It is simply disheartening to realize the number of people who choose an overheated, feverish planet and still more pollution.   

Looking at the timeline, it's easy to wonder what's next.  Will Obama approve the Keystone XL pipeline or will we make significant steps toward a clean energy future?
