Start the clock ...


It has gotten to the point where you have to be a complete moron or a Republican to not notice the effects of global climate change in your everyday life.

It has gotten to the point where you have to be a complete moron or a Republican to not notice the effects of global climate change in your everyday life. A report to be released tomorrow is the first one to quantify the whole mess and give a date for the event horizon - the time when our current course puts us past the point of no return for permanent and catastrophic environmental disaster. We are no longer talking centuries or even decades here - the cut off date is now less than 10 years hence .

Of course, none of this means anything to the Bush administration - they continue to ferociously reject the tenets of the Kyoto Accord. Is the Kyoto document flawed? Yes, big time. Is it better than nothing? Yes, obviously. But it appears that the profits of a handful of U.S. companies are much more important than the fact that we can now get out a calendar and count the days to the point where we are all (excuse the language) well and truly fucked.
