    Amy, potentially adequate technology is, if you read my article carefully, available. You are correct that political will is the big issue, but political will can change quickly. And since there are many levels of relative ruin that we can be headed towards, remember that the more we do about it, the less ruinous our future will be, so it makes no sense to throw in the towel. Ultimately, if we do quite a lot, we may be able to adequately manage this problem.

    How can an insane, really tyrannical insensitive thinkers, and dishonest men like Scott Walker persist in selling out his own state, and citizens to wealthy corporations? Helping them monopolize, and aiding their unions, while destroying workers unions, and teachers unions, and stealing pensions? Even by allowing corporate predators to freely exploit his own citizens. Is this movement of popular evangelism, Corporations united, so popular, that no one sees it as an evil dishonest movement to destroy their own freedoms, constitution and government? Is the robbing of the poor to give to the wealthy, not totally transparent, or so obvious they their blind followers do not want to see it or really believe in trickle down economics as a valid social, and workable science ? How can anyone believe cutting taxes for the most wealthy many who hide their profits in off shore accountants, will really help their poor, middle classes,nation and state, or produce more jobs and raise wages?

    it's too late, there is no political will or adequate technology to save the polar ice. nice dream though. it's sundown on humanity because of our "power over" mentality in regards to all species, our greedy evil politicians and our addiction to comfort and convenience. we knew in the 70s this threat was upon us. we keep electing the same disgusting greedmongers, having babies, running our electricity 24/7 and eating other species.

    What is "organic" about fertilizer from processed poultry feathers from a non-organic poultry processing plant. Known as "feathermeal" organic growers are using a fertilizer comprised of the pharmaceuticals the poultry ingest. Needs to stop!

    Until each state offers free picture I.D.'s to each citizen an I.D. cannot be demanded in order to vote. My mother was born in 1915. She was an honorable citizen and believed it was her duty to vote in each election. She never drove and therefore had no driver's license. She never had a checking account. She lived a simple life and paid cash for her purchases. She died a decade ago. I wonder how she would have felt if she were to be told she couldn't vote without a picture ID. There is no voter fraud in our country. Each state runs their own ship. It would take an army to throw an election in America. Please respect the simple and honest people in our country who want their voices heard. Be kind.
