    A really good diary.

    I am one that thinks we are too late to do anything to actually slow and/or stop climate change. We should have started that at least 40 or 50 years ago...if not even farther back...That said, I am also of the belief that Humanity can and must learn to adapt to the changes that will come. We have done it in the past, we can do it now.

    We cannot fight the MegaCorps and their Media Minions or their bought and paid for politicians... But we can make changes in our own lives, our own neighborhoods, and in our own communities. This is something that must be led from the bottom up... WE need to focus on survival...not all of this bickering.... It's a total wast of time and energy.

    And we will never, ever change the minds of those truly in denial, either for personal gain, or out of ignorance...
    The ONLY thing that will change their minds is when it really starts to effect them. Mother Nature will be a harsh teacher.

    Our best bet, IMO, is to have answers ready to go when all hell breaks lose. Be the first one on your block or in your town to have a private source of energy...or a way to capture rain for personal use. Be the catalyst for eating local, and an advocate for neighborhood gardens for fresh, in season vegetables. Be the source that people turn to for ideas when the deniers have nothing to offer.
