Empirical evidence could be argued to have had its day in the sun. There seems to be little in our evolutionary development to prepare our psyche to contemplate a fate of not being, let alone a history of holding ourselves responsible timely enough to make a difference. Whatever action one engages in, supplementing oneself with a Plan B may be worth considering as well. The upcoming drought of 2013 may be useful in ushering more folks to the table of rational thought, or it may only point folks towards more environmentally benign disconnects. I would defer to Nature to do the heavy lifting when it comes to preparing the “listener” for what its worth.
  p.s. 350.org. removed this post from their site, I’m guessing it was because I used the term plan B. Inherent in the argument that we still have time to make a difference is the opposite conclusion as well. If anyone can look at Jennifer Francis recent talk on climate change and pause 13:30 or so into it, and soak in the story about to be told, and you will understand why I’m found of saying "I like to be wrong". So, for your psyche sake allow the stardust under your management time to stare back at the sun and feel connected, but don’t call it plan B. Not around 350.org anyway. ( and I will be planting trees and spreading home made Terra Preta on them till my last breath) for what its worth…
