"Jerry Brown Global Warming Website Takes On Climate Change Deniers"

"Noting the occasion of the 15th annual Lake Tahoe Summit, a conference examining the environmental and developmental issues affecting the iconic alpine region straddling the California and Nevada borders, California Governor Jerry Brown announced the launch of a website dedicated to combating skeptics of climate change.

'Global warming's impact on Lake Tahoe is well documented. It is just one example of how, after decades of pumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, humanity is getting dangerously close to the point of no return,' Brown said in a statement. 'Those who still deny global warming’s existence should wake up and honestly face the facts.'

The site is called Climate Change: Just the Facts and is operated by the Governor's Office of Planning & Research. It gives a basic description of the science behind global warming, shows the scientific consensus behind global warming science and directly takes on common arguments made by people who question climate change."
