Read this great post. I agree with it so much, and also with the blog’s title. (“almost no one is evil. almost everything is broken.")
Man, you put a face on something, and it’s so easy for us to pulverize it into the ground. Osama Bin Laden is a great example; I mean, he was like The Hardest to find, and it still took us, what, 10 years? That’s nothing.
OTOH, global warming is going to totally F up the world and kill wayyyy more people than islamic extremists. But it doesn’t have a face, so we can’t kill it.
Maybe we need some Dr. Badguy, some Osama Hitler Jr., to come out of hiding like a comic book mastermind, unveil how global warming was his grand plan all along, and reveal that he feeds on atmospheric carbon and the only way we can kill him is to cut emissions 75%. You better believe we would get on that, right quick.
