  •  I'm glad to see you are writing (0+ / 0-)

    about extremely important issues instead of beating up on Obama for his gamesmanship in dealing with a bunch of know nothing racists.

    •  This news is particularly damning to Obama (3+ / 0-)

      since he SHOULD be turning this data into action instead of actively working against it to appease his 1% masters.

      Obama: self-described Republican; backed up by right-wing policies

      •  Just who is it that is damning Obama? (0+ / 0-)

        Just because he is a bought and paid for stooge for the Wall St. elites doesn't mean that progressives and left of center voters should be persecuting him also.

        This is a good article but I'm still trying to sift through this word salad;

        Climate change is scientific reality. It is an unprecedented global crisis. It shouldn't be political, but it is. And that means that by doing the right thing, by doing what is necessary, by doing what the scientific facts demand, by doing what the health of the planet demands, the Democratic Party could reap unimaginable political rewards. But not to do so would mean much worse than political failure. Because in addressing this crisis, without excuse or compromise, all of humanity cannot afford to fail.
        Let's see.

        Democratic party with a capital D and a capital P. That doesn't exist any more. Just like the republican party with a capital R and capital P. Any time people capitalize the first letters of political parties I get scared.

        Let's See.

        without excuse or compromise, all of humanity cannot afford to fail.
        This sounds like a tea party manifesto.
