Critical mass for climate action?

FRISCO — I wasn’t sure that I’d ever see this level of activism on climate change in my lifetime, but the message that global warming poses a clear and present danger — an existential threat — seems to be finally sinking in. Along with President Barack Obama’s direct language on climate in his inaugural address, the continued warnings from civic leaders, planners and scientists are adding up to an almost universal awareness that action is needed sooner rather than later.
