      Which I certainly agree with Romm & Mann on. But they don't disagree with Ezra on the numbers or the challenge ahead of us though.

      Honestly, Ezra is mainstream media guy who apparently just recently woke up & realized how fucked we are and overreacted with depressing pessimism. Hard to blame him if you look at the facts of the Science, and the political roadblocks - there is certainly a lot to be pessimistic about

      But there is still a lot we can do, and we must do the very best we can. We can still have a very liveable planet. But if we fail to push for radical mitigation, it will be catastrophic, with deaths in the billions. Wall St and the "ecopragmatists" are pushing for no strong climate targets, rather just mitigate gradually as is most cost-effective in their eyes, and hope for the best.

      Besides, I am not sure why you keep ignoring the fact that I gave u exactly what u originally asked for: proof on the Science (from Joe Romm & ThinkProgress) that Obama and the establishment Dems are not planning to do nearly enough to avoid a horrific future.

      I wish it wasn't so, but it is. This Neoliberal agenda is identical around the world too, across various countries. Not enough.
