This just supports my contention that humans are little more than crazy apes. From the beginning, when we first started to understand what climate change might do, I thought that human beings would never change a thing in order to deal with it. Why? Because the crazy apes, like most primates, can't see beyond their next meal. Sure, there are some out there who understand what is coming; Failed crops, droughts, floods, rising sea levels, starvation, migration..., and they are willing to do something about it, but the trogs will block them. Why? Because they cannot accept change. Literally, they cannot evolve.
It's like that guy living on Spirit Lake next to Mount St. Helens. The geologists were telling him to get out, that the mountain was going to blow, and what did he do? He told them, "Spirit Lake is in between me and the mountain, and the mountain is a mile away, the mountain ain't gonna hurt me... boy." He was getting fan mail from trogs all over the country who were celebrating how he stood his ground and told the gubmint and them goldurn scientists where to put it. Now he's buried under about three hundred feet of ash.
