Two Mother Jones in One!

Past performance is no guarantee of future results:

● “Global warming isn’t just going to melt the Arctic and flood our cities—it’s also going to make Americans more likely to kill each other.”

—The lede paragraph from “Study: Global Warming Will Cause 180,000 More Rapes by 2099,” at Mother Jones.com, today.

● “The only known solution to ecological overshoot is to decelerate our population growth faster than it’s decelerating now and eventually reverse it—at the same time we slow and eventually reverse the rate at which we consume the planet’s resources.”

From “The Last Taboo: There are 7 billion humans on earth, so why can’t we talk about population?”, Mother Jones.com, May, 2010.

By the way, between melting the arctic and flooding our cities and causing more snow and more rapes and reducing the population, and being the moral equivalent of the Nazis, is there anything that global warming can’t do?
