    Thank you Fish, for bringing attention to this very important story. It's funny, since this is undoubtedly the most important thing that happened in the political world today, but here it seems everybody just wants to talk about Newt Gingrich.

    •  Newt is a sex scandal, and this is an abstraction. (4+ / 0-)

      But let's make it as concrete as it gets:

      Every degree Celsius averted is a billion lives saved: the equivalent of 100 Hitlers' worth of Holocausts prevented.

      Now if anyone wants some emotionally stirring images to look at, they can go look up some history sites about the Holocaust and multiply that by 100 and envision this treaty saving lives on that scale.  

      The latest Newt News may seem pretty petty by comparison, but none the less is useful by way of riling up the crowd to help send him back to his beloved lecture circuit next year.

      Everything counts!

      "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
