Believe It Or Not .. It's still true. A climate change song.


Andy Revkin, time to sell your guitar!

Oh, and this one too:

In my book, The Republican War on Science, I noted that James Inhofe in a 2003 speech had included a "harsh attack on science blogger and journalist David Appell." The phrase "sheer lunacy" was used. You can see for yourself here. (Why I'm defending Appell I don't know, as he hasn't been…
Elizabeth and the Catapult, "Golden Ink": a mellow track from a very good NY area band. This really isn't one of my favorites of their songs. It's rather on the dull side. Miles Davis, "Ray's Idea": Miles is one of the great geniuses of the 20th century. What more need be said? Do Make Say Think…
Because of my previous trumpeting many of you may believe I scoff at anything non-mollusca. Untrue! I say! Indeed, I am friend of all invertebrate. My favorite books on my shelf is Barnes and Brusca & Brusca. Just to prove I love all those squishy, squiggly, and slimey, I provide a link…
Not being a regular, or even occasional, listener of Rush Limbaugh, I have no idea if this week's obscene call for New York Times climate reporter Andy Revkin to commit suicide was simply par for the course. We all know that Limbaugh is an entertainer who is just doing what he needs to do to…

Haha, love it. And as an Australian I LOVE that the cartoonist Tandberg gets shown at around the 50 second mark. Brilliant :D

These would be better if she made a little effort to improve the sound.

What I don't understand is why this is not the number one priority of everyone on the entire plant. And or what needs to be done in order to achieve real near term tangible progress.

@Dimitrios: Because they don't want to have to give up their precious little lifestyles. And they don't want to admit to anyone --including themselves-- that THEY are "guilty" of having helped cause the problem -- a seemingly insurmountable problem at that.

"I helped cause a problem that's destroying the planet and threatening my children's future, and it's so big that there doesn't seem to be any way to avoid it!" No, I don't think too many have the strength or willingness to embrace that reality.

It's easier to embrace the "cognitive dissonance" of believing what you know is false than to face a future you don't want to deal with, one that makes you feel bad about your lifestyle, or ::shudder:: one that requires you to ::blech!:: change how you're living or ::horrors!:: cost you MONEY.

But it sure does warp the brain in strange ways as a result and causes all kinds of nonsense to come out of one's mouth...

(The really evil ones are those who pander and promote the denialism, knowing that it's false, so that they can profit from their base of deniers, financially or politically. They don't care that the Earth will get trashed as a result; they'll be dead by then and can enjoy the spoils in the meantime.)
