Sleepless in Seattle

I'm in Seattle where I'm giving a talk tomorrow for the thirtieth anniversary of Seattle Tilth.

I was going to begin my remarks by saying that we’ve moved beyond the debate about whether global warming is real. But then I was looking over my speech tonight when I noticed my op-ed in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer had already been posted online.

And, by 11:14pm, seven comments had been submitted to "sound off."

I’ll just share one—you’ll get the idea: “Please stop this nonsense. Climate change has happened every few decades foe 6,000 years. I am so sick of the Godless left with their huge egos thinking they are to blame for climate change. Get real people and start worrying about things that have real consequences.”

I guess we still have our work cut out for us.
