To the climate deniers: Consider that up until about the Early Modern period it took 13 centuries to add 200 million people to the population (Rome to 1500). It now takes three years. This requires obviously vast resources – and you must consider the sort if toll that this takes on aquifers, soil health, sanitation, etc. Consider also that between India and China roughly 2 billion people at present enjoy an approximate standard of living/access to technology that we do here in the west. That leaves about 5 billion still slated to come on line and join. Mind you that China at present is one of the globe’s largest polluters (just look at the Yangtze River).

What is a climate denier? Do they say that heat and cold do not ecust? What a stupid way to begin a ridiculous rant.

Wow!! I am a Christian who believes the Bible and trust God when He says He is in charge of the universe, I do not fear the change in climate or get caught up in your rhetoric. I would advise you get to know this God by reading the Bible and then you do not have to fear either. FAct is we all die some day, the world is coming to an end one day so that is what I would be focused on rather than this effort you have placed into these theories about what was it first "Global Warming" - had to change the title to climate change because the warming wasnt so warm after all....how can people trust mere man yet avoid truth? A mystery.

Climate change faithful: Your religion is not mine. Pray to Gaia if you will, do NOT impinge my rights by inflicting your mental illness on me by force of law.

Here in the US there is growing concern over what some researchers have called Sacrifice Zones. These are areas that are mined for resources such as coal and metals that irreparably damage local environments and economically displace communities. One of the largest at the moment is in West Virginia where they practice mountain top removal (you’ve likely heard about this). These cause erosion, pollute the water table, deforestation, and generally sap the soil of nutrients, leaving it looking like the surface of the moon, as some reporters have observed.

But the US is not the only place that performs such invasive and damaging mining and deforestation. The Congo, the Amazon, Kyrgyzstan, Bolivia, Zimbabwe, India, Honduras, Ecuador are all sapping the environment for natural resources, displacing indigenous populations, creating cultural and political unrest, as well as irreparably damaging the environment’s ability to reestablish itself. So yes, a drought is not the end of the world, but there is a wide constellation of new and unprecedented problems that have arisen since Industrialization that we need to address immediately.

Hey Kittens - cut and paste much? Have you ever had an independent thought? Is Soros still paying minimum wage?

Yesum, wrote that myself. Do you have a substantial rebuttal?

Last night as many were getting last minute preparations together for superstorm Sandy when Bill Clinton said the following at a campaign event in Ohio:

"We're coming down to the 11th hour. We're facing a violent storm," Clinton said. He waited a beat, then added, "It's nothing compared to the storm we'll face if you don't make the right decision in this election."

But don't worry folks, the White House press pool already has the "possible politicizing" of Sandy by Mitt Romney, covered:

During a weekend press gaggle aboard Air Force One,...
