    But, have learned that very few things anyone actually sees a need for will change that quickly.  Even when our lives are at stake.

    I'm wondering if extreme weather events will lead to an undeniable catastrophe on multiple levels - including affects upon key D.C. legislators to create a "Perfect Storm" for governmental realignment into a war-time, economic and social stance for our country and across the pond.  Essentially, let reality push us into focus on physical events that matter and ignore the virtual money-makers for a massive imperative related to survival at a level of standards we refuse to give up on.  Fear is a great motivator, as we've seen with the far-right.

    Maybe I'm thinking of a "Watchmen" situation, but frankly, I don't see reason coming back to us very quickly if we're truly on the path - there's far too much inertia to counter.  We work the black seam together.
