Obama's Suicide Pact with the Death Worshippers of Capitalism

It's time to drink your kool-aid or turn over the tub.  We can't wait for our grandchildren to act, as they are being cognitively disabled to make resistance impossible.  From Alternet:
Are there any self-respecting environmental organizations out there that are still behind President Obama? After his State of the Union on Tuesday it's hard to imagine there could be. In his address, Obama proudly declared, "The 'all the above' energy strategy I announced a few years ago is working, and today America is closer to energy independence than we have been in decades." 

Based what we know from the most recent climate science, Obama’s "all-of-the-above" energy policy is actually suicidal. To say that we’re approaching a dangerous precipice would be too optimistic or simply unrealistic. For a decade we were peering over the edge, but now we’re falling—how long and how hard depends on what we do this year and in the next few years. . . . .
