Changing the Climate of the Debate about Climate

Just a quick note about a really good article in Rolling Stone about the math of climate change. Don’t let the word “math” in the title scare you — this is a really easy to understand explanation of what is happening. And what we need to do about it — before it is too late.

I like their suggestion, which is similar to how pressure was applied to South Africa to end Apartheid. It just could work. Go read the article now.

Ironically, a freaking music magazine has turned into one of the best sources of clear information about politics and the important issues of the day.

    My right-wing father-in-law got me a subscription to Golf Digest for christmas a few years back, and renews it every year. I don’t play golf, and have no interest in it.

    So a couple of years back I got him a subscription to Rolling Stone, under the premise that he doesn’t like rock-n-roll and has no interest in it.

    Secretly, I love the political articles by Matthew Tabbi and others in RS: investigative journalism that exposes the ridiculousness in US politics for what it so often is – rooted in corruption and partisanship.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s sinking in with him. Probably goes straight into his garbage can while my Golf Digest goes in the recycle bin. Sigh.
