Heather, if it were just us dragging our feet I would have much more hope. But just now I heard from my friend Giedre and you can read it for yourself. Even in smaller more enlightened countries like Spain, where she lives, they fiddle with the numbers to make themselves look like they are doing something when they aren’t. But when you have China, Russia, India and Brazil literally sticking their noses in the air and giving the rest of the world the finger... It would seem the only solution there—and I really did not want to say this in the article—is outright revolution in those countries. And we are close to the same here. Because if nothing drastic is accomplished soon there will not be a later.

Once again, as always, the young will have to go to the walls to protect the future I fear. It may be our only hope.
