  •  The analogy I use is a speeding car (16+ / 0-)

    The Oligarchs are going to get their Republican army to claim that it's too late to stop Global Warming so we should start looking at mitigation.  There is no mitigation of Global Warming effects if we don't stop increasing the GW gasses.

    We are speeding toward a brick wall.  If we slam on the breaks right now, we'll hit the wall at 10mph.  We'll feel it, but it won't hurt too much.  If we wait 5 years to slam on the breaks, we'll hit the wall at 20 mph.  Now that's going to hurt a lot, but we'll recover ok.  Another 5 years, and civilization will never be the same, another 5 years and, well you can see where I'm going with this. So don't let the conversation move from stopping Global warming, to trying to live with growing warming.
