Too late to stop climate change - time to prep to cope and adapt.
The next IPCC report due in March from the world’s top scientists is on impacts, and it isn’t pretty. One summary of a leaked draft of the report noted man-made climate change is likely to worsen “starvation, poverty, flooding, heat waves, droughts, war and disease.”

If reading this does not turn your heart to ice, and make your stomach churn, you really do not care about America or your IQ is in the toilet. 

This is quietly going on all across our country!!!

Joe Adair --The place the Koch money is hurting us is even more insidious: state legislature races. 

We have publicly-funded races here in New Mexico, qualified state rep candidates receive $30,000 to run a campaign, which is plenty enough to inform your constituency of your philosophy and goals. 

Our opponent, was publicly funded too, but thanks to Citizens United, they also had $250,000 in Koch money, filtered in through a Gov. Susana Martinez PAC. 

Residents of the district were often treated to THREE negative mailers A DAY. 

Our once-heavily-favored candidate lost by 15 votes, from a total of about 1,200 voters. 

That's $208 extra per vote cast spent against our candidate! 

It sounds insane that they'd do that sort of thing, until you hear the crazy bills being introduced (and passed) in state legislatures across the country, especially voter suppression. 

New Mexico's once VERY blue legislature is now purple, and that's pretty scary, folks. 

Democracy is a dead beast in America, beaten to death State Rep by State Rep, with the plutocratic hammer of Citizens United.
