Sigh . . .
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, Mont. — What will they call this place once the glaciers are gone?
A century ago, this sweep of mountains on the Canadian border boasted some 150 ice sheets, many of them scores of feet thick, plastered across summits and tucked into rocky fissures high above parabolic valleys.
Today, perhaps 25 survive.
In 30 years, there may be none.
A warming climate is melting Glacier’s glaciers, an icy retreat that promises to change not just tourists’ vistas, but also the mountains and everything around them.http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/23/us/climate-change-threatens-to-strip-the-identity-of-glacier-national-park.html?_r=0
Yet try to talk to a conservative right winger about this very real situation and they'll just tell you that it's a conspiracy between greedy scientists and the liberals to take away your freedoms -- even though the stark reality of what is happening is staring them right in their stupid fucking faces.
The Gadfly has long given up the concept of being civil with these assholes on the right. It's an utter exercise in futility. You just simply cannot reason with morons who are so intent maintaining their moronic views that they actually celebrate their ignorance.
No more coddling their assholery - nope, not one minute more.
