All governments keep secrets from the people they represent/lord over. Is acknowledging that governments keep secrets a conspiracy theory in and of itself? If so, then I've figured out the ultimate conspiracy theory. Our government is not in a state of denial about climate change. They know exactly what's going to happen. They will take care of the 1 %. The rest of us are on our own. They know it's too late. They've cut our lifeboat adrift. I don't know whether to be depressed or feel liberated. Those libertarians among us who've always postulated that "that government which governs best governs least", well, I think they'll get their wish. I think the Transition Town concept deserves another look. And brush up on your meteorology, convection and wind dynamics, and learn about rain barrels. Weatherdude, want to work on some long term climate preparations for us?
