View Diary: Climate Change is so HARD (28 comments)

  •  Climate change is viewed as being hard (7+ / 0-)

    because people cannot envision themselves in a different reality.  If the country ever got serious (like New Deal, WWII type serious) in its efforts to change our lives to correct course with climate change it would start being viewed positively.  WWII was plenty hard but the sacrifices promised a more secure and brighter future for us.  Gloom and Doom will never sell people to get on board with the changes necessary.  But a reality based message coupled with a positive plan being articulated at the federal level would make it seem doable.  With Obama mentioning climate change in his inaugural speech I see a flicker of hope that this can happen.  Hope springs eternal!

    If we really want to straighten out all this crap we really need to think about shit - Holy Shit.
