  •  to clarify, is the diary (6+ / 0-)

    Making fun of legitimate concerns about the direction we are going environmentally is idiotic.

    LABobsterofAnaheim offered an opposing interpretation downthread:

    In my reading, the diarist isn't making fun of legitimate concerns about the future of the planet, but the kind of handwringing diary that basically says there's no point in doing anything about it because we're already so far gone.

    which, arguably, derives from this statement in the diary:

    The only way forward is to admit that we're doomed, cease all attempts to do anything productive, and find a way to become less than useless to civilization.

    Is there some other statement in the diary that supports your conclusion?

    Also, does the  "direction we are going environmentally" refer to criticisms that dems in congress and the WH are 1) changing in the wrong direction or 2) changing in the proper direction but at an inadequate rate?

    Signed by,
    Someone who has long appreciated the severity of these concerns.

    ambiguity is okay--if you know what I mean
