Looks like the far right has gone from total denial (hoax!) to questioning the degree of threat. Progress! Was it what you read, or maybe you've noticed some change up in them thar hills?
As far as what to do, we are already moving to hybrids and electrics. Fuel cells are not just on the horizon but already in beta testing. We will be rolling out nukes for the short term and scientists are researching the feasibility of CO2 scrubbers. And fresh perspectives in building science will greatly reduce consumption on the home and office front.
So you will be able to boast about your mileage and money savings without having to ever admit those culty lefty elitist windbags might have been right after all. Win - win.
