Maybe the pile of poo is actually, for us, a compost pile!

Re: “Did Hartwell Really Say That About Climate Change?

The reason the IPCC has made some "some pretty extreme statements about what’s going on" is because what's going on is pretty extreme. March 2014 was the 349th consecutive month of above average global temperatures, C02 levels are higher than they've been in 800,000 years, and the list of species going extinct, weather systems being permanently altered, and communities already being severely impacted could fill the pages of Seven Days for quite some time. The conclusions, made from years of observations from thousands of climate scientists, is that it is being caused by human behavior - and while that's a painful thing to contemplate, it's the truth of the situation.

In defense of Paul Burns, it's not that he thinks Vermont can take actions which will pull the CO2 out of the global skies. But he's drawing the same conclusion I came to after spending 2 weeks at the 2009 UN climate talks in Copenhagen: The rest of the world has been working to address these issues and has been impeded, in large part, by the United States. The US needs a leader to show the rest of the country what's *possible* when it comes to taking meaningful action on these issues, and Vermont is in a great position to be that leader.

If not us, then who? If not now, when?
