37. Same idiocracy that Carter and Obama have faced. Oh, that science thing. But the Pope's statement:

The monopolising of lands, deforestation, the appropriation of water, inadequate agro-toxics are some of the evils that tear man from the land of his birth. Climate change, the loss of biodiversity and deforestation are already showing their devastating effects in the great cataclysms we witness.

Shows who has the moral ground, in just two sentences. Reversing this course is a goal of mankind and life itself. We are not going to fly away and escape it, nor should we plan on disposing this planet. It is also a measure of how we treat each other, the way we treat the Earth. In every term in those two sentence, we see the death and or misery of millions living now and in the world to come - not in the Kingdom Come as Apocalyptics use as their excuse to discard living beings, including all flora and fauna. The encyclical is right in all I'm reading here, and I hope this light is not snuffed out by the Koch billionaires.

The Kochs have threatened Obama since 2009 over Keystone. They have fostered willful stupidity in the populace through ubiquitous repetition on all venues. They know they are wrong but continue on their path, as if they are alien to this planet, period. There is no making peace with them, they only accept total surrender of the mind, and that is still not survivable.
