One of the great metaphors in the book concerns the earth's atmosphere. Think of a basket ball with a piece of cellophane tape on it. The tape represents the size of the atmosphere in which all living things can exist. And our fossil fuel lovers think it can absorb what ever they dish out.
Do you think trump has ever thought of fragility of our life zone? Doubtful.
And then we have in the ABQ Journal today an oped by the flack for the fossil fuel industry, one Doug Turner by name, who savages a Native American legislator for wanting to ban fracking around Chaco Canyon and other New Mexico locales. I am surprised at Turner's retreat from his usual decency. But there is money in it I guess.
