I agree that global warming is a major problem. The good news is our carbon polution from energy use is way down and well below the Obama agreements. However, the reason for this accomplishment is fracking for natural gas. If it weren't for fracking natural gas to heat homes in the north would be 3 times higher and electricity would also cost much more. Therefore the energy pavilion should not be replaced but upgraded to explain what is actually going on with the energy industry and its effect on both the environment and benefits to consumers. Focusing on only one aspect of energy is wrong and if the environment is the sole focus people will freeze to death in the winter or die from the heat in the summer. We need affordable energy but we need to balance that with the environmental needs of out planet.you're right. every time bill nye says global warming is a "hot topic with plenty of debate," it makes me cringe. i always wonder if he regrets that, and/or taking exxon's money to say it..
nevertheless, and don't take this as an attack on you, TJ, because i agree that kids (and adults, for that matter) have reduced attention spans nowadays, but it's so frustrating to me that we don't try to expect more from our kids. i remember thinking epcot was "boring" when i was a child, and now i revel in the fact that i got to experience the original epcot center and believe it helped form a portion of who i am today, attention span and all.
it's a bummer we have to cater everything to the LCD.
