The 2008 economic collapse has demonstrated how feeble our government is in solving problems. Our proverbial “kick the can down the road” policies have left us with an economic fiscal cliff. Everyone is talking about the economy as if it were the only problem facing our country and the world. What is missing from the conversation is the environmental cliff that, if left to be kicked down the road, will create an environmental disaster that will affect not only economies of the world but our very survival.
