“If you start turning the Titanic long before you hit the iceberg, you can go clear without even spilling a drink of a passenger on deck,” said Richard B.

Yet the Koch-fueled Republican Party maintains climate change denial as a central tenet of their party platform.
Yet President Obama refuses to admit the threat projects like the Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline pose to our future survival.
Vice President Joe Biden just told Rolling Stone that the Obama administration is placing its bets on fracking for natural gas -- arguing that the way to fight carbon pollution is with more carbon pollution.
The scientific observations are not in doubt, and the facts are not negotiable. We are fed up, and we must hold those who are pushing us off the climate cliff accountable.
