The entire world knows this is the crisis of our time. If the United States does not acknowledge this problem & use our tremendous intelligence & creativity to start coping with it systematically, the world food supply will begin to dwindle, coastal cities will be under water & our economy will be disastrously disrupted. The crisis in Syria started with a catastrophic drought that Assad refused to deal with. How can we not cope with climate change as a matter of national security? I know you religious folks think God will take care of you & it's okay if the rest of us die. You need to get off your sanctimonious butts & figure out how the next generation is going to survive. These are your children, too. In case you don't know, your kids can't eat, drink & breathe all the money you pocket from dispensing political favors to carbon polluters!
