Many of our current problems stem from our inability/unwillingness to do a simple extrapolation of trends. Three examples: We have pursued two recent wars which produced greater numbers and more severely injured survivors due to improved transportation and medical technologies. Nothing was done to prepare the VA for this predictable onslaught of highly compromised patients. Next, use of antibiotics in inappropriate ways has resulted in strains of resistant organisms. Little has been done to prepare for the predictable consequences just over the horizon. Finally, climate change. This last non-linear process has, I think, already passed a point of no return. Interesting that our species, while intelligent, wasn't smart enough to prevent our own extinction.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
