This right-wing dick I know – he’s my step-dad, so trust me on this – gave me a hint on the now stance people who were too selfish and petty to listen to reasoned people about global warming will take now that we’re beginning to feel the effect of global warming. (And, believe me, the party is just starting.) He said, “We’re just going to have to accept that this is how it’s going to be.”
No shit? We can’t, like, reduce our pollution? Maybe change our attitudes? Perhaps, make some sacrifices? Now that the world is completely fucked, it seems obvious that the folks who wouldn’t do anything to prevent global warming are the same folks who won’t get off their asses to reduce it.
Sometimes, it’s embarrassing to be in the same race.
