Why is it that people who want to conserve our climate, environment and resources are called radicals ... and people that support radically changing our environment and atmosphere are called conservatives??

The Olympic opening festivities were watched by 215 million people with all its advertising, nationalist bravado and corporate messaging.

Our climate is destabilizing globally, breaking heat records, flooding, intensifying storms, causing drought such as the largest declared disaster area in U.S. history, raising sea levels and acidifying oceans, increasing the range of tropical diseases, reducing agricultural crop output and otherwise making a future for human civilization ever less possible.

Does anyone really believe, as we face challenges unlike any other in human history, that it is really important under what flag someone comes in first in a foot race by a couple of hundredths of a second, but it’s somehow acceptable that apparently we can‘t have any intelligent public discussion about climate change?

"The greatest danger to our future is apathy."  Jane Goodall
