    But it seems to me that all the "studies" and commissions that look at the "dire state" of Social Security never look past the year 2040.
    89 years old.  *I* expect to live that long, but many of my contemporaries can't.  Climate change will help; old people are more suseptible to heat exhaustion and other heat-related health problems.  Hmmmm..... Is that why the Rethuglicans are so reluctant to deal with climate change?  If so, 'Thugs, give it up; we've got enough lag in the system to get plenty hot in 2040 - 2060 even if we drop our carbon emissions to zero tomorrow.  

    Renewable energy brings national global security.
