Global Warming: Suddenly it's Sexy Again

And all it took was a sobering look at the economic consequences. Nothing shakes up the powerful interests like a potential loss of profits. And our cousins across the pond in the UK are starting to beat the drums.

Jesus, it only took, what, 30+ years of the environmental movement's harping about it for it suddenly to catch on? And now only because of the sacred and almighty bottom line.

It's hard to imagine a more short-sighted and selfish bunch of louts that the captains of industry in this country -- and in most of the rest of the world, sadly -- but here's hoping that even they will get that sudden flash of inspiration, stop looking just at the Long Green, and start considering the Real Green.

And here's hoping that it's not too late.
