Great work on this meta-issue. Everyone should read the recent 3 part New Yorker series on global warming, especially the final one, where they talk about what can be done.

It's going to be very, very, very hard to do everything we need to do to have a chance at holding the line on climate change, and the case for the centrality of the U.S. and its complicity for not participating in Kyoto is made clear. Bottom line: The longer we wait, the harder it gets. If we have another decade of full anti-compliance political control (i.e. the hard right), even an optimist like me will lose it. That could be decisive, if waiting out these last 10 years hasn't already been decisive -- time will tell.

Just wait till the costs of building dykes all along the East Coast and dealing with refugee crises and resource wars in the developing world. Iraq will seem cheap.
