Of course, I'll look like a stuffed mushroom in it, but they sure do look cool.
Ah, but the US Officer Corps is no longer respected in the heartland. As of November 2013, 23 percent of Americans said they "didn't believe in" climate change. Which will be about as effective as not believing in a bullet that's been fired at your nose. No wonder a cult-like tenor has set in, waging war not just on science but every other clade or profession of knowledge and skill in American life.
To be clear, the unequivocal position by the US military has had some effects upon the Fox party line. Russian bases erupting along the Arctic Ocean and the opening of the Northwest Passage to shipping are pretty undeniable… so Hannity and company have veered to changing the message: "All right, the climate is changing… but… but… climate has ALWAYS been changing and that don't mean we gotta do anything!"
In fact, that's a lie, top to bottom. The last 6000 years has been among the most stable, climate-wise, in the last 20 million… and even so, small perturbations like the 1500s Little Ice Age wrought horrible havoc on nations and peoples. Any astrophysicist will show you how closely the Earth skates along the inner edge of our sun's "goldilocks" or habitable zone… and hence why we can afford only traces of greenhouse gases.
But the greatest sign of stunning low-IQ is how Fox-viewers never notice the change in catechism! From "there's no warming!" over to "all right it's hot: but prove that it's human generated!" It's like the millions of Glenn Beck followers who never asked "WHICH eight foreign governments did you say George Soros toppled?" These and dozens of other, never asked questions show that this is the greatest known-nothing campaign against a sapient, scientific civilization in 150 years. Possibly since the Inquisition. And you have to ask: what do Rupert and his partners hope to gain?
Some of that evidence comes from space; scientific discovery was for Johnson a stimulus to new kinds of religious awe. “ARK” opens by describing orbital photographs: “Over the rim / body of earth … rays exist sun / rest to full velocity… Pocked moon kills half the sky. Stars comb out its lumen / horizon.” Johnson meant to unify the wonder of science and the pre-scientific postures of awe, listening for “A god in a cloud, / aloud,” and trying to teach us to see what he could see; “The front of the eye is a convex glass, alive.” And “ARK” is literally full of things to see: not only brief descriptions but diagrams, a handprint, and plenty of concrete poetry, deriving “form from form from form from form” through the shapes that letters make on a page.
