  •  There are a few more stages to go (3+ / 0-)

    before then.

    But the consensus timetable for them would appear to have advanced by at least thirty years.

    Likewise the magnitude of the shift - I don't think people are discussing rising sea levels in centimeters per century anymore.

    •  It was more of a BOHICA reference (0+ / 0-)

      The response is insane. They know the climate is changing or else the retreating ice wouldn't be happening. So their reaction? Make happy faces and help keep the process going. We're going to get fucked (again). And I don't subscribe to the "this is the end of everything" alarmism. But rather "it's going to get ugly, really ugly" stoicism.

      As soon as you have people telling other people how to live/think/behave because "god gave them authority" you effectively get dictators in funny looking hats.
