>.  So now they are trying to drum up the threat from massive uprisings as a
result of.  climate change.

Climate change?  Indeed?  . The actual threat is right there in front of us:
unlimited and unchecked growth of government snooping into everything we do
and threatening us with a completely unaccountable IRS, yet we cry out for
climate change to come along and save us?...  I have news for them: climate
change cannot save us from us.  Spike


I can do better than that.  The real threat is not just out of control
government, but in how to supply future needs for cheap energy.  The most
optimistic among us can see that oil supplies cannot last forever, coal is
dirty, wind is ugly, solar is expensive and is in the dark most of the time.
I keep going back to nukes.  

Who would have guessed in the 1980s that in a mere 30 years, we would be
here where a dedicated environmentalist might have the bumper stick:  Nuke
the whales, and save the nukes.
