Let that title sink in for a minute. Roll it around in your head. What you are looking at is a reality that has been foretold a thousand times but has been ignored, manipulated, spun and was the target of outright lies.

And yet, there it is. Climate change is forcing the retreat from NYC neighborhoods. Since hurricane Sandy a lot of regular folks have done the hard work of confronting the reality of their situation and are taking steps to protect their families.

Maybe you’re one of them. If so, smart move. Sandy was not a fluke. Sandy was a harbinger of what James Hanson called “the storms of my grandchildren.”

And it’s not the first city to lose people who should be counted as climate change refugees. Katrina caused a similar phenomenon in and around New Orleans and Andrew struck the same terror into the hearts of people in and around Florida.

Floyd, Irene, Hugo, Ike, the list goes on. It will continue to grow as we kick the can down the road of our suicide by profit driven climate experiment.

You see, the people who have been making billions of dollars in profit don’t care where you end up. They don’t care if they wipe out entire cities. They don’t care that the sea level rise we’ve already locked in due to our emissions will make 400 US cities and towns uninhabitable. These cities are already lost. We can’t save them. Miami, New Orleans, NYC; for a complete list click here. 400. Is yours one of them?

This brings me to Exxon. They suspected that burning fossil fuels might have a bad long term effect on the planet, so their scientists looked into it. They spent millions and knew by the early 80’s that without a doubt their product would do exactly what’s happening today.

They sat on the information. And worse, poured millions into promoting doubt, disinformation and denial.

Is your town or city one of the 400? Did Exxon drown your home? If so it might seem fine when you look at it now, but open your eyes. It’s already underwater. There’s nothing anyone can do to stop it.

Oh and by the way, it’s November and it’s been as high as 75F in the northeast us. 75. It’s been weird warm like this for two weeks. There are still leaves on the trees. Those that haven’t fallen are largely brown and dead now.

And, now to tonight’s Republican debates:

Here in the US, the vast majority of our Republican Party doesn’t want any legislation to slow climate change. This group is the only group in the world who doesn’t get what’s happening. This willful ignorance has everything to do with their corporate donors.

(Refer to the 400 cities and towns we’ve already lost. Refer also to Exxon knowing because fossil fuels fund the Repubs).

So, if you vote republican, they don’t really give a shit about you unless you’re very rich and one of their donors.

Or, if you drive a VW. Sorry, I have to comment on the growing emissions scandal at VW. Boy is that going to wreck their bottom line. Millions of cars carry that defeat device. Millions. VW, porche, Audi, Honda, Mercedes Benz . . . and the list continues to grow.

When all is said and done, I wonder how much this mess will cost VW and the other manufacturers involved?

I also wonder if it will make any real difference? Laws don’t seem to apply to these folks.

I read this morning that young people are starting to file class action suits against fossil fuel companies because these kids are the ones who will bear the brunt of the changes we have wrought. This is a great idea and I hope they rip the bastards to shreds.

As for us and our climate change rock opera: The Nature of Man, we have caught the attention of some very big names and are trying to schedule meetings. Everyone’s busy so it may take a little time, but we are confident that we have the right story in front of the right people at exactly the right time.

And we will rock you while generating change.

God speed.
