US Isolated After Climate Talks Walkout

In some ways, this reminds me of the little kid who decides to take his toys and go home because he isn't getting his way. Classic American attitude that helps explain why we are increasingly despised by the rest of the world. I sincerely hope that our next president can undo that damage done by this one.

It strikes me that there are many parallels between denial of global warming and denial of evolution. In both cases, the evidence is there. In both cases, America serves as a shining example of ignorance. In both cases, we should follow the evidence, exercise critical thought, and let go of religious or corporate superstitions.
