We are going through a particularly contentious period in our nation's history.  Just one of the issues that we can't seem to find progress or agreement on is the issue of "CLIMATE CHANGE."  Write an ESSAY that represents what YOU think the problem/issue is.  Is it a mirage, a hoax, a cataclysm waiting to happen? What is standing in the way of consensus on this issue?  What is the "end game?" Has the issue been overblown?  Is there a way that the science and the politics of this issue will come together to resolve this?  Must we wait for a new generation of leadership?  A catastrophe?  Moreover, how do YOU see the issue? How do you think it will all end?  Don't be shy . . . what's going through your mind on the issue of CLIMATE CHANGE?  Share/Send/hand in your work to Mr. Ellinger <wally.ellinger@celinaschools.org>
