  •  Oh. I'm quite confident we will be seeing storms (12+ / 0-)

    similar to and greater than Sandy more than once every couple of years. And in between there will be drought and famine. And fires. And tornadoes. They will interrupt business. They will kill businesses. They will interrupt recovery from the last storm. They will create refugees. They will cause refugees to move from one landing place to the next. They will escalate militarization for control of scarce resources. They will escalate struggles to manage and control refugee populations. They will injure and kill. Over and over in ever greater numbers.

    And it won't take long to see all this taking shape. 5-10 years. It will be the economic impact that will send the deniers into the shadows. We will slap stickers on their backs saying, "kick me, I was a denier".

    Ultimately, the survivors will all be forced to abandon the lives they cling to in the various forms of denial in which we all, not just conservatives, live.

    The only question is whether and to what degree anyone will anticipate these changes and prepare for and provide humane paths of existence through the end of growth and shopping to something not only sustainable but remotely livable, decent and hopeful.

    Purging predominantly minority voters and requiring them to present IDs to vote in the face of VIRTUALLY NON-EXISTENT VOTER FRAUD is RACISM! I hereby declare all consenting Republicans RACISTS until they stand up and object to these practices!
