      comment. I am very serious.

      Any place that might not suffer as bad, will be inundated by a mass influx of souls who think they can ride it out in that "safe" place for a time.

      But really that will only end in the depletion of resources there, without addressing the problems that are so glaringly obvious everywhere else.

      There is no where to run. We are here, on this planet.

      Time to sink or swim.

      Think about all the doomsday scenarios that tell people to move to the mountains in Colorado ride out the Earth Changes. What effect do you think that population explosion will have on the Rocky Mountain Ecosystem?

      How many of these people are moving there with the intent to change their "evil" ways? Not many I wager. Colorado is not a magic pill. It is just a vulnerable to climate change as any other place.

      Even now season creep is severely affecting pollination in the higher altitudes causing the same thing up there, that is happening down here--Flowers bloom out of season, pollinators emerge or arrive too late to use known food sources. Animals starve, flowers are inadequately fertilized, fewer fruit for mammals, fewer seeds dropped, everyone suffers.

      Now lets throw in a heaping helping of freaked out New Agers and Christianists.

      Wow, that helped a lot!
