  •  It is pretty much the height (8+ / 0-)

    of ridiculosity.  I mean, just what happened to corn crop last year with a single degree of warming should be setting off alarm bells even in the skulls of people hopelessly blinded by money.

    This is what made the Bush years so exquisitely painful for me, when we dismissed the most important issue we've ever faced and instead dumped uncounted billions of dollars into the absurd GWOT.  I mean, fine, let's get bin Laden, but the GWOT in execution ended up as nothing but a black hole for finite amounts of blood, treasure and political will.  And this when we, as a species (and certainly as a nation), have much bigger and deadlier fish to fry.

    How we can be such fanatics about some things and completely apathetic about others will always baffle me.
