  •  More caution, more politics, less action, that... (6+ / 0-)

    is the trajectory of this President and his Administration on this subject. Why are the Chinese in Tibet-to guarantee their water supply from the Himalayas, the same reason Israel is in the Golan Heights, water. Our government knows what is going on with the climate, read "Climate Wars" by Gwyn Dyer, we aren't planning on changing our use of fossil fuels, we are planning to militarily dominate what is left of the land and water necessary to "maintain" America and its elites in the manner to which we have become accustomed.

    We are on course to make this planet unlivable for over 4 billion people and 50% of all currently existing other species. This is a fact, not a guess, if we don't immediately change course, homo sapiens organized into a modern culture will be decimated by ocean acidification, drought, desertification, plague, war and famine.

    This will be happening soon, not in 100 years, migratory pressure is already happening in the natural world and human populations will be moving in masses within the next 20 years. The US government and all other governments know this and will still continue using a majority of fossil fuels for energy production. They will do this because they are paralyzed by the status quo and can't think of anything else to do that will support their power and the wealth of their supporters. We are doomed by our own greed and inability to change our culture of consumption and domination by violence.
