What Is Important

More climate denialism from the right. Upon hearing that PG&E, Exelon and Apple have broken with the US Chamber of Commerce over Global climate change policy, Thomas Donahue announced:
"We are not changing where we are," he said. "We've thought long and hard about what is important here and we are not going anywhere."
Well, Mr. Donahue, I hate to break it to you, but you are going somewhere: the future. What that future looks like is in large part up to the decisions that you and billions of others make in the next few years. What is important to you is apparently an unrestrained ability to make absurd amounts of money. What is important to me and most others is to ensure the planet is still habitable by humans. But far be it from me to criticize your infatuation with little green pieces of paper.
