    I think we are very near a tipping point. I just hope it isn't too late..

    Thank you for your diaries as always!

    •  Thank you joe. I alway have extra appreciation for (3+ / 0-)

      those of you who offer support when I publish on these controversial areas, and also get a little bit more aggressive with detractors. Do you think I should take out the section on Nate Silver? I don't really mean to call him out, however, he is influencial and speaks for many who are looking for some way of avoiding, or at least delaying the most painful aspects of the changes we meed to make.

      For example, we have given up even talking about a carbon tax, or carbon based credits which are probably worth considering.

        I think it is something you sincerely believe, and felt strong enough about to include. If someone doesn't agree, they can say why. That's what Daily Kos is for!

        The front pager Laurence Lewis wrote a front page diary on Nate Silver and climate change several days ago too.

          Joe I have a lot of respect for you, and yes, you perceive that correctly,  but my first reaction was WTH? Are you out of your mind? If I used that as the standard I would have been run out of here 9 and 1/2 years ago.  lol
