I think that 'disconnected' is the most charitable description and the best we could hope for. Perhaps he did not read history such as 'Gulag Archipelago' or even more frighting, maybe he did. Perhaps I'll read it again. If you think this is just theory, read a book by the man who lived it: Solzhenitsyn 'Gulag Archipelago' I like this quote: "And that's probably the greatest tragedy of all: in the name of the greater good, convinced of our own purity, we can be so ready to perpetrate the greatest evils." Some reviews and quotes from the book: 'However, if you manage to finish, you'll know more than you could ever imagine on the subject, and be left with a chilling knowledge of how ordinary, good people subject themselves to tyranny and become participants in this vicious system.' This book is an important testament to the wicked ideology of communism. I dare anyone to read this and then try to make the case that we are better off with governments than we would be without them. This put "a bad situation" in America in a totally new light. I wish more Americans would listen and have listened to Solzhenitsyn Most definitely worth reading if even just to realize that things are not so different today... I recommend it because the crimes and injustices in the book were committed by human beings, toward other human beings, and it would be a good idea if we all became informed about how that happens and, He examines the hypocrisy, lies and empty slogans of Soviet Socialism and how their application destroyed the soul of a great people.

We know why and it is the most frightening fact about the present state and composition of our present populace. It is also quite probable that even if the stars align properly, that it could take a full generation or more to begin to turn our present situation around enough to make a difference. What should be done if we don't have that much time left?

Environmental Pessimism

The CO2 emissions on a world wide basis have continued to increase. CO2 does not stay local but becomes equally distributed throughout the atmosphere and especially the oceans and the land surface Eco-sphere. The observation is that world atmospheric CO2 level has increased continuously from 0.000278 to 0.000400 parts in the atmosphere over the last century and this rate probably will not change. It shows no apparent relationship to global temperature change at least as near as we can measure it to the nearest 0.1 C. Any commensurate increase in greenhouse effect with temperature cannot be measured by our most sophisticated technology to date. Our problem lies with the widely disseminated and repeated claim by the UN politicians who write their own synopsis(executive summary) of their report that 97% of scientists 'agree' that CO2 is the cause of the fraction of a degree which may have occurred over the last in the last century. Take a careful look at their own survey of their own selection of cherry picked scientific reports on the subject by Mr. Cook: If you wish to check these numbers which come from the global warming study proponents themselves: Reference a letter to Mr. Cook who made the survey appears here: "The paper you published is not merely defective: it is deceptive. It claims that 97.1% endorsed a “scientific consensus” that at most 1% had endorsed. You cannot let it stand." http://joannenova.com.au/2013/09/monckton-honey-i-shrunk-the-consensus/

Houston we have a problem. First take the profit out of it. Will the drug lords diversify into other illegal activities? Probably, fight one war at a time. Second, let our youth work for every penny they get so that they appreciate it and will be more careful what they spend it on. Third, get rid of the dumb and corruptible solutions and then find some smarter solutions and help the gov. implement them
I will worry about man-made climate change when the science shows that CO2 plays any significant role in warming.

Strange, usually showing strong leadership in a crisis is good for the image of a leader. His only strong response to the first trade center bombing was lobbing a cruise missile into Afghanistan which exploded ineffectively into a terrorist training camp, Osama was already gone. Then nothing more.
