    Ma Nature is going to do it for them.  She's already started.  

    I understood why Obama didn't want to say "global warming" in the 2nd debate and instead had to talk about developing new sources of clean energy.  (It was also a bit heartbreaking to see them debating over who would get the most oil and gas out of N. America.)

    So it's not only a case of truth telling, but also one of dealing with the egregious despicable lying blowback unleashed on the public and pol who tries to tell the truth.  Cuomo and Bloomberg only got away with it (for now) because Sandy is too obvious and raw to spin.
