    ...whistling past the graveyard.

    Please see every comment I have made about the environment. Nothing else matters except one thing: water. Without fresh, potable water we're toast.  

    If the entire human population dropped off the face of the planet today, the temperature would still rise for at least fifty years. No country on earth is doing ANYTHING to deal substancially with climate uncertainty.

    I've been living in Alaska for 33 years. I've watch climate change happen before my eyes in that time. I'm terrified for my granddaughters. But if they stay here, they will at least have fresh water during their lifetimes.

    Good luck, fellow "sapiens."
