RIP Planet Earth

Well it's official. The Senate Climate Bill is dead. It's been a year of record breaking heat but the GOP, climate change deniers and cowardly Democrats won't lift a finger to address the slow motion destruction of our ecosystem from carbon based energy.

The House did their job but the Senate will now only address a very narrow slate of issues related to off shore drilling and "tightening energy efficiency standards." Meanwhile the noose of global warming will continue to tighten around the throat of our planet and our progeny will be the ones choking on our politicans' failure to take responsibility for the damage we do daily to our environment.
