A good piece this morningÂ in the New York Times, illustrating why global peoples are in for some way-hard, climate-change-days due to the fact that although nearly every other nation accepts climate change as a pressing problem, America has turned agnostic on the issue.
And nobody seems to be paying much attention to this: The authors state it is already too late for a transition to a global economy that no longer depends on fossil fuels to function. Thus, the world is seemingly destined towards a future of economic damage that will get worse and worse.
Now we’re in for what I call, The Double Bitch Bang — the twin horrors of climate change and peak oil, both arriving on scene near-about together.

Oddly inÂ tune with the theme, catch this wonderful bit off The Dish: One must always keep a sense of humor, might be the best way to handle the future — laugh your ass off.
John Cleese observes that not only is laughter the best medicine, but “laughter connects you with people.”
Laughing with somebody is way-better than fighting them.
Update: Joe Romm at Climate Progress on a reason US peoples have gone ‘agnostic‘ about climate change: MSM’s non-coverage and its inability to put the pieces together, or ‘connect the dots’ to the uptick in extreme weather events and climate change.
