Global warming? Nah!
As we approach the evening news, our hope is for tolerable temperatures predicted. The newspaper tells us the permafrost in Alaska is no longer perma...if you get the drift.
Polar bears, down to 20,000-25,000, may disappear soon. Drought is scaring the bejesus out of me when 78 percent of the corn crop is in drought. A couple years of this and we might see food riots throughout the world.
Everything is pointing in the wrong direction. Yet there is no panic. Hell's bells, there isn't even a collective sigh. Don't you wonder what is going through the minds of political leaders who are able to ignore the possible death of the planet?
That is the reason I am so happy that Bill McKibben is coming to Fighting Bob Fest. He is the national leader and we need his directions.
War has never seemed so silly. We are out of Iraq but the fighting has picked up again. Why did we invade Iraq? I forget. And Afghanistan? I forget. Phil Donahue and Norman Solomon will get the crowd moving.
Sick and tired of the war on women? I am. The president of NOW, Terry O'Neill, will raise hell at Fighting Bob Fest.
We are going to put forth a motion to have FightingBob.com become a membership organization. I am confident we can do it.
So we have Fighting Bob Fest, FightingBob.com and
Fighting Bob Radio. How do we keep going? You are the answer.

Climate change is serious. This summer's damn heat is serious and unhealthy for critters and plants. Humans are critters. People can complain about the weather. They can deny global warming and the human effect on its acceleration. They can even complain about rising food costs as well as shortages. What will we do when we start running short of fresh, clean water? It is more than likely rural wells will run dry, especially in areas heavily into irrigated farming, as in central Wisconsin. We can see rationing of water in urban areas.
There is hope. We have the Tea Party, the rightwing nuts, the profligate rich and corporations who will save our day by making the entire planet the new Garden of Eden.

The Earth is trying to speak to us. The question remains if anyone will listen. What should have been done 30 yrs. ago was left undone.
The biggest issue, and that which will be hardest to change, is that switching from non-carbon based fuels will put "us" directly in conflict with the most powerful and entrenched money barons of the world.
