This Is It, Folks

That's right -- the end of the world, where we all collapse beneath the weight of our own obstinacy, stupidity, hypocrisy, and greed.

At least, that's what I thought after reading this quote:

"If you want to talk about global consciousness, I'd say there's one country that is focused on action, that is focused on dialogue, that is focused on cooperation, and that is focused on helping the developing world, and that's the United States," [State Department spokesman Adam] Ereli said.

... right after the U.S. delegation walked out of climate control talks in Montreal today.

The second best line was Paula Dobriansky's quote about attending climate control discussions "useful opportunities to hear a wide range of views on global climate change."

Mendacity. No one knows better what is happening and why than us.

Teach the controversy, my friends, teach the controversy. As long as someone disagrees, there's no need to do anything.

Of course, it helps if that lone, maginalized, opressed voice of dissent is that of the most powerful man in the world. Then you really don't have to do anything.

(It's good to have you back, Mr. Carmody.)
