"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The Human Race may very well die out - and no one is talking about it. The fact that we've now gone through three Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates - and not once has global climate change been brought up - should be, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, an "Alarm bell in the night" for all of us. Especially because this last September was the hottest September ever recorded in the civilized history of the human race. Not only that - this last September produced the smallest amount of Arctic ice ever recorded in the civilized history of the human race. Our planet is rapidly changing - scientists across the world are freaking out - farmers are getting hysterical and, in many countries, committing suicide in mass numbers - and yet our two Presidential candidates are fighting about who's going to pump more carbon pollution into the atmosphere: That would have been the perfect time for Candy Crowley to chime in an say - "Hey, guys what about the climate change crisis that's being worsened by all of this drilling?" But she didn't - and then Romney bashed the President over not approving the Keystone XL pipeline...Actually the President DID approve the Keystone pipeline - at least a large portion of it - and he'll likely approve the rest if he wins a second term.
