Three Cheers for Chip for Recognizing the Problem

Well, y’all, I have only one thing to say today, it is the most important thing I have ever said, and I did not say it:

“Here’s the heart of the matter: We are ecologically illiterate — not just unfamiliar with the necessary scientific vocabulary and concepts, but spectacularly, catastrophically, tragically dumb. Oh yes, some of us now understand that draining those wetlands, clear-cutting the rainforests, and pumping all that CO2 into the atmosphere are self-destructively idiotic behaviors. But when it comes down to how nature itself behaves, we remain remarkably clueless.” Chip Ward on TomDispatch today.
