Caution, genius at work

DM, and we have a question below:

If you think 300,000 immigrants and asylum-seekers apprehended on the southern border is a problem, and I don’t necessarily think that it is, the kind of migration and refugee flows that we will see when entire bands of this world are no longer habitable will be a crisis of a different magnitude altogether. We face catastrophe and crisis on this planet even if we were to stop emitting carbon today right now at this moment.

Some will criticize the Green New Deal for being too bold or being unmanageable. I tell you what: I haven’t seen anything better that addresses this singular crisis we face, a crisis that could at its worst lead to extinction. Literally, not to be melodramatic, but the future of the world depends on us, right now, here where we are.

along this current trajectory there will be people who can no longer live in the cities that they call home today. There is food grown in the country that will no longer prosper in these soils. There is going to be massive migration of tens or hundreds of millions of people from countries that are literally uninhabitable or under water, that are above the sea right now. This is our final chance. The scientists are absolutely unanimous on this, that we have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis.

Question: are you allowed to vote if you’re this stupid? Answer: possibly no, but you can run for president.

We’re trapped in that Twilight Zone episode where the earth seemed to be heating but was actually freezing. Los Angeles just recorded the only February in its history where temperatures never reached 70 degrees on any day.

    It’s just days away from spring, and I’m still slipping wildly, like some comically uncoordinated Fred Astaire, on icy sidewalks on my way to work in Montana. So tell me again about those twelve years?
