  •  Human and market nature (9+ / 0-)

    is to avoid change until you absolutely have no alternative...until all the oil/gas/coal have been burned...or the world becomes so unlivable that people have to act...

    until then denial is a powerful defense...especially when there is money to be made from it

    that is why there is supposed to be governments - to look out for the bigger picture...beyond the quarterly stock price or the other narrow focuses of the market...

    but when the moneyed interests have so totally co-opted the governments then we are all screwed...

    i really thought the financial sector through insurance companies would have gotten ahead of the curve and seen the handwriting on the wall and started some pushback against fossil fuels...

    but their bread is probably buttered on both sides...and they figure if global warming leads to catastrophic losses they can get in line for their bailout

    Blue is blue and must be that. But yellow is none the worse for it - Edith Sidebottom
