Ignition Ignation Ignotion...Now we know...

What it takes to shut  the shitaree down entirely.  Add 'Climate' to 'sex, religion and politics' as the top untalked about topic.  Neither presidential candidate mentioned it.  Even here at the bastion of Left Coast letters, I was criticized for asking a guest questions about climate change instead of questions about the economy.  Twenty-four hours later all the pundits, talking heads, intellectuals public and private were wondering why neither Romney nor Obama had mentioned the fact that virtually every physical system upon which our daily dose of weather depends is showing signs of irreversible changes .  Our most Byzantine algorithms are incapable of handling all the variables.  And in addition to defying prediction, Climate Change is unstoppable.  Even if the last automobile was parked forever and no fossil fuel saw the light of Ignition Day, even if agribusiness gave way to wilderness and even if birthrates plummeted,

 

Even If...

 

So Wall Street closed up shop as  Sheriff Sandy comes to town...Does this mean that the corporados have made their peace  (More likely made their piece) with "a higher being as they understand it"...or are they celebrating the official opening of Disaster Capitalism Season? Has Sandy blown into town, guns a-blazing, knocking the locks off the tech stocks and burning out the circuits of the last living system in the sky?

Last year at about this same time, Occupy Wall Street mobilized to shut down the markets. October 2012 as the Walls Came Down, between Humankind and the kind of inhuman weather that destroys the nation-state like since the Genghis Khan - and don't forget (That is, if you ever knew...) that the Khan reached the 'suburbs' of Vienna where he was stopped by a freakish fluke. So keep the Freak Flag flying, Keep your eye on the storm and your finger on the trigger because in the immortal words of Thales of Miletus: "The arrow is always coming because it never arrives." "Global Warming"? More like Global Warning...
