  •  I have a problem with this diary (0+ / 0-)

    The pet peevish pedant in me simply cannot abide these grammatical errors, perhaps the most common ones of all:

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released it's Draft Plan for Climate Change Adaptation (pdf).  Essentially, the agency is mainstreaming Climate Change adaptation and mitigation into it's core policies, planning, practices and programs whenever possible.
    It's "its", not "it's".


    Also, while we're on this total aside of a diary hijacking, when using the words "less" and "fewer", "less" refers to gross quantities, as in "less water", and "fewer" refers to discrete quantities, as in "fewer drops".

    Btw, thanks for the update. Always good news when government behavior reflects reality, not fantasy or special interests.

      i know the difference between its and it's but iPad insists on changing every its to it's, forcing me to go back and fix it.  It is most annoying.  Maybe that happened here.

      The scientific uncertainty doesn't mean that climate change isn't actually happening.
