    President Barack Obama said Wednesday at a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago that he's willing to work with Republicans to improve the environment, but he doesn't have "much patience" for those who refuse to accept the scientific consensus on climate change.

    Obama warned donors that the climate is warming at an accelerated rate, and that while the dangers may not be readily apparent, they are still severe.

    "But the flipside is we also know that the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or 10 years ago, and that the future...in part, is going to depend on our willingness to deal with something that we may not be able to see or smell the way you could when the Chicago River was on fire, or at least could have caught on fire, but is in some ways more serious, more fundamental," Obama said.

    I hear what he's saying, but what he says and does are different things. Or at least what his administration has done.

    "The human eye is a wonderful device. With a little effort, it can fail to see even the most glaring injustice." Richard K. Morgan
