David Letterman goes too negative for my hopeful outlook, but his point about leadership is well made.

Wow! Haven’t seen Letterman in ages, but he’s serious from time to time, who woulda thought? “20-25 hurricanes in the last week”, heh.
Good point about the lifetime of greenhouse gases.
Well haz he does indulge in obvious exaggeration from time to time…but i think he was at least moderately serious with regards to being screwed.
this goes well with the above vid..as a two-fer..(enviro/economics)..
it’s an american economics ‘guru’..
..who has decided that it is way past time to stop not scaring the punters..
..and a combination of watching the two clips..
..is almost enough to make you seriously think about going bush..
..and coming a survivalist..
We need a few more people yelling “dead meat!” before anyone will take things seriously, so congratulations to David Letterman! People always laugh when they are in denial. Global capitalism may be walking dead at this point, but civilisation has a chance if we wake up and give ourselves a soft landing.
Great to see him uncharacteristically choosing NOT to luagh at his own jokes on this.
I hate the sheep who think that carbon dioxide is a real problem at this point….we’ve already been through the worst of the effects of CO2. It’s strange that an educated man like David Letterman doesn’t know that CO2 has a non-linear effect on temperature. People need to wake up and realize that it’s NOT humanity’s fault for any more than 2.5% of the total “greenhouse effect”, or even more than 3.4% annual CO2 releases. Stop ignoring the science.
