    I especially like how the illustrate more general conclusions with a number of specifically observable detail, as with the recent spills, but with all the main points in your post.

    I wrote a long response about our problems in educating and activating the realities of global warming to an understandable crisis level to the people, from the average citizen to the nation's top legislators and leaders.  I see the writing here as a movement in that direction, as well as a few others lately.  I decided to delete my comment because it was too long for many to read, and however much we would like to think otherwise, even here few long comments receive much attention.

    The pipeline is both a dangerous risk in and of itself and an enhancer of global warming.  I chose to comment here for several reasons but primarily to say that unless we can make this crisis, which I refer to as the ultimate crisis, graphically clear as to the suffering and risk to life on earth itself we will never be able to save ourselves.

    I'm glad to see movement in this direction.
