Climate Change

It would seem that we have passed the tipping point where anything can be done about climate change and global warming.

It is unfortunate that so many people have been in denial about this very real, and life-destroying phenomena for so long.  I have heard the rationalizations - sun spot activity, natural planet cyclical processes, blah blah blah.  I've heard it all, from supposedly well-educated people whom I considered smart.  I don't think these people are smart anymore.  The science is well documented and you'd have to be pretty ignorant to deny the basic facts.

The truth is, the extreme weather we are seeing (and have been seeing for years in increased hurricane force, F5 tornados, blizzards, typhoons, etc.) is caused by global warming.  We're in deep and pretending we don't have a problem really won't make a difference now.  We're past the point where anything we do now will help us.

California is on fire.  So is Australia.  The polar ice caps are melting, creating the horrible polar weather being experienced in much of America this winter.  And the people who think global warming isn't happening because its so dang cold outside are just amazing in their lack of intelligence.

Our wildlife is dying.  Out planet is gasping.  And we're well on the way to extinction.  But people still don't believe. 

How stupid we are.   Dumb has gone viral.
