    before we hit 2.0 deg C warming (which is generally agreed to be the point when things start to fall apart), exactly how low on the priority list should action be?

    •  twice nothing is still nothing (1+ / 0-)

      I did not suggest it be low on the priority list, just that if Obama wants to build momentum for real changes,  then he can't be fighting 'the fiscal cliff' recession nonsense and expect progress on climate change.

      I didn't create massive stupidity in the American public, the corporate welfare state that perpetuates short term profit taking over the collective good, Republican intransigence, etc.   But ignoring those things stand between us and effective political policy making won't make the response to climate change better.
