    The Chamber of Commerce is another group, that spews the propaganda and disinformation of the Koch Brothers paid for climate scientists, whose reports are what the Koch Brothers tell them to say.

    A big part of the fight is disseminating the info in the above clear-eyed article by Allison Fisher. Another part of the fight is convincing Congress to act. Right now, all the favorable energy legislation goes to dirty energy’s interests while clean-energy initiatives die in Fred Upton’s House Committee on Energy and Commerce. One thing we can do is let Congress know that this isn’t how the American people want Congress to behave. MoveOn.Org is sponsoring a petition. (http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/representative-fred-upton) We can sign and share the petition telling Fred Upton that if he can’t help lead the transition from dirty energy to clean, he should retire. That’s one way we can prolong the fight. WAKE THOSE POLITICIANS UP!

    Sorry, I like the fee and dividend proposal by Bob Ingliss and James Hansen better. Hopefully, the Republicans will someday, too. The Democrats? … Not so sure.

    Regardless of current employment or economic benefits, in the longer-term climate change won’t be good for business. Most Chamber members aren’t stupid wishful thinkers, they’re well aware of the science even if they choose to deny it publicly. Most likely they are incorporating climate change into their planning, as have the insurance and financial industries, and the Dept. of Defense, for some time. It is a perversely unsustainable strategy — coping with, or even benefiting from, a preventable harm. It is present in other sectors, such as in an unhealthy food system causing, and healthcare “treating”, preventable disorders. The unpleasant truth is that, in the event of major climate catastrophes, no amount of planning can anticipate the resulting socioeconomic upheavals, and no amount of current wealth will be of much value nor afford much protection.

    As long as money is involved, information and ‘facts’ are tainted.
