A Note to the Parade of Idiots Called My Country

presented in the Comments section of an AP/Yahoo news story on the Senate's proposed climate bill, which would begin to limit the amount of carbon dioxide businesses can add to the atmosphere...

Americans' willful ignorance about the undeniable effects of our industrial/consumerist way of life on the environment and climate is a sure sign of the end of America's short time as the #1 nation. It's not Obama who's ruining the country (altho he's not doing much too stop it) -- it's the ignorance and selfishness and self-righteousness of the white middle class, the losers who think Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are something other than imbeciles or charlatans. The people who trust the scientists bought and paid for by the petroleum industry to tell them what to "think."

Burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that traps heat below the atmosphere.
Increasing the heat under the atmosphere causes climates to change -- it won't necessarily be warmer everywhere, but climate will change, become unpredictable and chaotic.

Our way of life is causing that and our willful ignorance is making it worse.

Fellow Americans: don't fear the truth -- stop being stupid -- everything's not all about you -- be a decent person and citizen.
