    That's great.  The problem for people who perceive themselves to be living in a place with few options, is to do what they know how to do in order to have economic opportunity.

    That tends to mean ignoring large scale issues that localities or individuals feel they can do nothing about.  

    The disconnect is that scientists won't connect local bits and pieces of weather data to overall global trends.  Newspapers carry that story nearly every day.  

    Given the intense need to develop real estate or to do something else that has been proven to work to generate local economic activity, it is tough to sell the need to change based on data that isn't determinative at the local level.  

    That is the problem.  It isn't political primarily political but economic.  

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
