I'm watching coverage of the Live Earth concerts on Bravo. A show host just briefly interviewed singer Keith Urban. Urban indicated that at one of his recent concerts, when he said that he'd be participating in Live Earth, he got booed!

Apparently, some people think that the environment is some radical political issue, and that concern for the environment is something to be ridiculed.

These people obviously don't realize that climate change, if not dealt with immediately, may have an enormously grim effect on the future of this planet and its inhabitants.

So they keep driving their gas-guzzling SUVs and thinking that we who care are the bad guys.

Meanwhile, the situation continues to get more and more critical.

Is there any hope?
