While I voted yes, I am going on instinct here, and possibly a hope and prayer.

Massive fresh water aquifers being bought up (all over the globe), oil catastrophes (as Gulf of Mexico) poisoning our Oceans/food supply, power crazed sociopaths intentionally run worlds economic system into ground ( to impoverish all but 1%). Fukushima looming, fracking poisoning, purchasing of bio-organisms and Democracy, gmo manipulation of food supply, seed banks buried deep into earth, drug induced zombie psychology controlling % of population, capitalism raping very essence of humanity, police state, corp., gov., & citizen centrepol, bunkers 10+ stories deep into earth, social progs of food, healthcare and housing (sustaining human life) being systematically demolished, ...there is intent here, clearly all this (and more) does not propagate "Life, Liberty or the Pursuit of Happiness" ... to put it mildly.

If it is not Fukushima Reactor 4 alone that triggers a global catastrophe, obviously there are a myriad of catastrophic elements breaking, just as the dawn.

This is not the 60's... "We're not in Kansas anymore"

oh, you know, now that we are no longer a democracy…I guess an initially defective nuclear reactor going hyper ballistic and ejecting a radio-active cloud into the atmosphere that rivals an asteroid impact only to leave a crater where southern Japan and a sizeable chunk of the ocean used to be…is just something we are going to have to get used to. Long live GE.

Climate deniers are running out of excuses...

One-by-one, the excuses for failing to act on climate change are disappearing.

Earlier this month, China proved that it's possible to quickly and dramatically reduce carbon emissions. According to an analysis by Greenpeace, our planet's largest greenhouse gas emitter reduced coal use by about 8 percent in a single year.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
