We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
After aeons of huge changes and cycles, the earth has suddenly developed an instability, and at the precise moment in time when the means of cheap computation to issue urgent warnings about that same instability became available.
An incredible stroke of luck that these two improbable things not only happened, but happened at the same time.
I take the point, but would frame it slightly differently: instability is normal for climate. That's not precisely good news for any of us, Gaia-worshiper or Vile Warming Denier, as it means we could be screwed at any time. (See unpronounceble Icelandic word beginning with "E," recent news.)
But it does mean that running from port to starboard on this boat every morning and back again every evening isn't likely to be helpful.
