    Or, at least it should be amongst the most important pieces of information that President Obama considers.

    If the economy is a paramount concern, the potential benefits to the overall economy pale in comparison to the huge costs related to devastating climate change. How many more Hurricane Sandys and killer tornados do we need before that point hits home?

    If politics rules, then surely -- SURELY -- by now, President Obama knows he can, and must, make this concern hit home with the American people, not just as a theoretical environmental "issue" above the pay grade of "ordinary" Americans and only of concern to radical "activists", but as a pocketbook issue -- and a survival issue -- that will effect every single person on the planet, no matter how wealthy.

    No?

    The only entitlement that needs reforming is the inbred belief of the 0.1% that they are entitled to 99.9% of the wealth and 100% of the power.

      he left town to go golfing with an oil CEO and Tiger Woods.

      IF that was meant as a response to the demonstration, it doesn't look good for Climate policy. Hope I'm wrong.
