Pentagon Prepares for Global-WArming Induced Social Chaos
- A quote:
> The Pentagon's reaction to this sobering report isn't known—in keeping with his reputation for reticence, Andy Marshall declined to be interviewed. But the fact that he's concerned may signal a sea change in the debate about global warming. At least some federal thought leaders may be starting to perceive climate change less as a political annoyance and more as an issue demanding action.And a link:
> If so, the case for acting now to address climate change, long a hard sell in Washington, may be gaining influential support, if only behind the scenes. Policymakers may even be emboldened to take steps such as tightening fuel-economy standards for new passenger vehicles, a measure that would simultaneously lower emissions of greenhouse gases, reduce America's perilous reliance on OPEC oil, cut its trade deficit, and put money in consumers' pockets.

my take on this:
---Typical corporate dictatorship response. When confronted
with a problem they pay quick lip service to it , then decline even
to be interviewed, and continue their genocidal actions. We
must work for reform of the electoral system, to preclude
completely incompetent jokers from becoming president even
though they are not supported by a majority of the people.
THAT is the main fight- it is crucial; until this problem is fixed
we shall keep seeing this happen again and again, and the
'religious right' will keep us on the path to their beloved
armageddon. All the while getting into bigger and nastier cars,
murdering more and more cyclists.
