So greed wins again? No shocker there. It usually does. Humans don't resolve issues until they are forced to resolve them. When the only alternative is looming death, then we act. That's just how we operate. Comfort first. Climate change is going to create more than poverty around the world. It's going to take societies and governments apart. The stability of markets that the oil companies love so much, and have spilled so much American blood to maintain, will be a distant memory. Let them rake in the profits while they may, their grandkids will be eating dirt and cursing their names.
