    what's even a bigger problem than the intentional or ignorance-based denialism is the natural denial mechanism we all apply so we can go on and enjoy our lives.
    Seriously. My life has so much more impact than it could under other circumstances. I can change some of those circumstances -- but the road map from where we are to where we need to be is a difficult one. You absolutely right that denialism based on comfort could produce enough inertia to keep changes from happening.

    In some ways, the discussion I mentioned above is a paper tiger. Well, it's a paper tiger compared to a bunch of comfortable people having power to make decisions about creating change...

    Breathe in. Breathe out. Forget this, and attaining enlightenment will be the least of your problems.
