If you like hard-hitting articles about climate change and what needs to be done, you’ll want to read the "The Sky is Really Falling" by Chris Hedges posted today (May 30) on Common Dreams. Here's the lead paragraph of the Hedges' article:

"The rapid and terrifying acceleration of global warming, which is disfiguring the ecosystem at a swifter pace than even the gloomiest scientific studies predicted a few years ago, has been confronted by the power elite with equal parts of self-delusion. There are those, many of whom hold elected office, who dismiss the science and empirical evidence as false. There are others who accept the science surrounding global warming but insist that the human species can adapt. Our only salvation — the rapid dismantling of the fossil fuel industry — is ignored by both groups. And we will be led, unless we build popular resistance movements and carry out sustained acts of civil disobedience, toward collective self-annihilation by dimwitted Pied Pipers and fools."

I don't disagree with him, it's likely to be civil disobedience that gains traction against this ginormous, and growing, problem. Thanks Badger.
