    and I like it, but good to remember how much destruction had to happen before the country could be rallied. My worry is that by the time the destruction from climate change gets big enough for people to be scared into action, it may be too late because of all the feedback loops. Also, having a villain like Hitler gave this mission a very specific target to rally around. That said, I agree that that's what we need, a big international WWII type intervention.

    Who will be the climate Hitler?

      As a pretty typical American energy consumer, I suppose we could just use me.  But I'm not sure "When you ride alone, you ride with Alison" has the same punch...

        I agree on people not perceiving the threat.  But there has already been enormous damage from climate change-- massive droughts and storms pop to mind.  Not to exploit tragedies, but can we ask the survivors of Hurricane Sandy to speak out about the impact of climate change on their lives?  Or the midwest drought?

        And, again, to refer to the golf groundskeeper earlier in this thread, a lot of people have evidence in their own lives.
