You are confusing climate with weather. Weather fluctuates from day to day such as daily temperatures and precipitation variances. Climate is weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period such as the tropical monsoons of central and east Asia. This is not a liberal or conservation issue.

Exxon knew about this, and validated this, decades ago: which means that every single administration has known about this for decades, and delayed and delayed, and delayed, while repealing Glass Steagall and developing policies that mobilize wealth into the hands of a very, very few individuals in mind-numbing numbers, off shore.

I'm with Gimli. Enough is enough. This may be the last hurrah for Democracy when a nation's "leaders" start voting for corporate "investor state trubunals" that trump U.S. law, and can over ride public health, environmental laws if a corporation is hindered in its "profits": that is what TPP seeks to do.

Play by the rules? Show me how Wall Street and vote-suppressing Tea Party Republicans "play by the rules" as they rig the economy and our government for the benefit of themselves and themselves only. ...(full comment)
