Memo for GOP Climate Deniers: Deny the Facts at Our Risk, Thanks a Bunch

Sing Along Time - Whoops - Sorry, Same Old Tune 

Let's be clear on this subject, Mr. and Mrs. Gee Old Pee: Denial is more than a river in Egypt.  For starters, this short segment has a few nice reminders from the climate deniers:

I suppose that the current crop of GOPers who deny science, first: probably failed high school science, and second: could care less about the massive changes forthcoming decades from now that cannot be reversed for one reason: they will be long gone and no reason to worry now. Amazing. What if our forefathers had held that same view? We'd still be in the horse and buggy days.

We should always be concerned about the future - whether we will be part of it or not - our children and grandchildren and their children and so forth, will. It is irresponsible to have a problem at hand and possible solutions and simply ignore them for political reasons or worse: for political gain. 

Here is the latest report on dramatic climate change linked at NPR ... A new government report just released (May 6, 2014) finds that climate change is already having a broad impact on both weather and the economy, and it will only get worse and BTW: once here, it cannot be reversed. However, taking positive steps now can slow it down and start to help it make improvements. Waiting is not an option.
