This is why I never had children  
Or ever will.

We have 10 years until the point of no return. After that, global warming will produce worldwide climate change. Even massive cutbacks in emissions after that time will not help.

I'm about at the point where I want to give up electricity and go homestead up in the wilds of northern Ontario. When is it no longer paranoid to say WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES AND EVERYONE ELSE?

I developed anxiety disorder almost 16 years ago. And this was the subject of my panic attacks. I've been attack-free since 2001, thanks to Lexapro, but this news is almost guaranteed to start it up again. What kills me most of all is that I know the US leadership will spend the next four years denying that there is a problem. Clearly the problem is with these scientists, who hate our freedom.

Yeah. We'll love that freedom to bleach our bones in the desert America becomes.

What happens to outrage when it's never heard? What happens when frustration bottles up inside and is never relieved?

I'm with you. I have no desire to bring children into a world like the one we've got. And you're right, I'm sure Dubya will completely ignore the issue. However, maybe the human race has finally outlived it's usefulness and the Earth is ready to reclaim itself. I have no doubt that the planet will weather this eco-disaster as it has untold times in the past, however, the Earth is overdue for a mass extinction and guess who's number is up?

Gee, I'm feeling sunny today.
