    So our parents sacrificed us and their parents them yet somehow we’re doing fine?

    We passed farce on climate change years ago. Does that mean we’re about to return to tragedy?

    Not sure max food stamp users and 8 percent unemployment is doing fine.

    It does take an amazing degree of blindness to think we’re doing fine. Like someone on the Titanic who thinks there is no cause for alarm because HIS cabin is still perfectly dry.

    “Why, Sir, [he] is dull, naturally dull; but it must have taken him a great deal of pains to become what we now see him. Such an excess of stupidity, Sir, is not in Nature.” — Samuel Johnson (1709-1784).

    Though I can’t agree with Night Gaunt completely. It will get worse before it gets better, but I have to believe it will get better eventually. In the meantime,however, we are all paying (and are going to pay) a heavy (and increasing) price for allowing fools to run our affairs. Perhaps when ConserveGov says “we” are doing fine, he means that he is confident that he has the resources to remain comfortable for the rest of his life no matter what happens to the rest of the planet, and he doesn’t care what happens after that. After all, no matter what economic, ecological, or political upheavals the degradation of the biosphere may entail, there are those who will ride it out without too much inconvenience.

    One does wonder why ConserveGov has chosen that name, since no one has see any interest in him in conserving anything. ConserveNot would be more appropriate.

    Carbon is a poison? Carbon is bad? We are carbon based life forms. So we must be bad. Our very existence is harming the planet. The stuff we’re made of is killing the children. Not abortion, mind you, driving your car is killing your children. Not actually killing them, but having an SUV, is killing them.
    And the left says the right is stupid and hates people.
    Hypocrites. Moronic hypocrites.

    Flee before the boarders are sealed and you are forced to insure yourself so “we” don’t have to pick up the full tab when you have a heart attack, get cancer, break a leg.

    You are 100% correct. The conserve part is the same as other republicans. The desire is to control you, me and everyone else in the daily lives, who one marries, how and when they have relations and what they do with their bodies.

    Back in the old days we sacrificed virgins to volcanoes. Setting aside the question of why volcanoes liked virgins so much, I wonder “Where have all the virgins gone, long time passing?”

    Obama’s already assured that our children and grandchildren will have no money or economy by borrowing ourselves into oblivion.

    A person could become the richest person that has ever existed if they found an economical way to reduce CO2. Recover the carbon; release the oxygen.

    Great analogy with the Titanic. I suppose there are “those who will ride it out without too much inconvenience” but I’m not betting on it.

    Touché! Good show!

    Although I have come to regret it from a personal perspective, seeing what the world is becoming makes me feel that I did the right thing in deciding not to have children.

    “What ever happend to that hole in the ozone layer? Weren’t we supposed to be dead from skin cancer by now??”

    We banned all CFCs. Eliminated them from hundreds of products and refrigerant coolants. Ozone hole now greatly reduced. Through strict international governmental regulations.

    Corporations said “thousands of jobs will be lost, consumers will pay horrific prices, economy would tank”, etc etc. This was before the economic boom of the late 90s.
