    Isn't it obvious by now?

    Humanity has failed the test of whether we could rise above our ordinary concerns and act in the interest of our planet as a whole. Clearly we have proved incapable of it. The time to be acting is right now, and we are still procrastinating as we did 20 years ago, as though we have all the time in the world.

    We will try as best we can to cope with the consequences when they can no longer be ignored. That is going to be our only strategy.

    We decided to move the center farther to the right by starting the whole debate from a far-right position to begin with. - Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
