The lack of snow, and lakes that haven't frozen over, are signs of global warming according to state Representative Spencer Black. The Madison Democrat says the warm weather so far this winter shows that Wisconsin needs to join the battle against global warming. Black is sponsoring legislation to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to their 1990 levels. Black says it's a battle against global warming, and an effort to reduce "greenhouse gas" emissions. His proposal is copied after a law in California.
