AIN'T THAT THE TRUTH!
A very good point! Nothing much matters if we're killing the plant, and we are. Turned on the news last night (MSNBC) and the big stories were about Kerry's allegedly inappropriate use of the word apartheid to describe the Palestine/Israeli conflict and a basketball team owner's racial slur. Yet I log onto facebook and see two of the most pressing issues covered in a meme: we don't have jobs and are making the only planet we can live on unlivable. Would we hear more about dire, important stories if MSNBC didn't take ad $ from companies who outsource and seek to outsource more jobs overseas and companies which hasten global warming? Just a wild hunch.
