  •  Not long ago the world motivated (11+ / 0-)

    to fight a World War. The nation rationed food and energy and went to work to defeat a threat because they believed it was worth it and because they believed it was possible.

     We need to tap into that whole attitude again. A sense of immediacy is what is lacking, IMO. There is a lot of money, a lot of special interest, and a lot of self interest invested in keeping people from feeling that the war is now.

    With massive drought, temps ever rising and extreme weather events happening with increasing frequency somehow the people have been lulled into thinking that we still have time.

    Figure out how to get people to feel the threat is now and you have your answer.
