Oh, no. Certainly this is not political. And denial is more than a river in Egypt.

It is about us all and our fossil fuel consumption.

We need to transition to renewable energy as soon as possible. We can keep all the benefits, if we do it right. And if we can reduce our carbon output and get the atmosphere back below 350PPM, then we have a much better chance of getting through the next 100 years. The next 10 years or so, are critical.

Or, should we keep pissing it away as quickly as possible? What do you think? Should we keep on like we are, or should we do it better?
I can remember hearing the same drumbeat of moaning and fretting about how we would soon run out of oil. That was back when Jimmy Carter was president. Scare tactics and guilt mongering always resonate with a gullible few who believe the sky will soon fall. Isn't it interesting how this monotonous, old nonsense only gets touted when there is a Democrat/Liberal/Socialist in the White House? Why should this come as any surprise? Let's run it up the flagpole and see who salutes. And don't forget to buy the book. And watch the videos. And denounce anyone who is anything other than a politically correct Leftist.

Nah, the hit piece on the Koch family that Neil endorsed is not political either. It's good, objective reporting, right? - just like Dan Rather was a good "journalist", as far as the Left was concerned. (Too bad he got caught at it.)

And the sheeple, the new citizens of EAarth said: "BAA, BAA, BAA!"
