It's a good thing recession is keeping our emissions down, because if it was up to the people there'd be a lot of bumbling around wondering WTF? Learning about something takes effort, and effort is hard when people are just trying to get by in this world.
Someday the recession will end, our emissions will increase again, and the world will just keep getting hotter. Maybe then people will start paying attention, and maybe by then it will be too damn late.
I blame the Republicans. Only a few of them would have come to their senses to do something about this now, and they would not. Now those few have screwed us all.
