On Monday's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert brilliantly exposed the core of the Rightwing's denial of climate science. Once you accept the scientific evidence, he suggests, you might feel compelled for a minute to do something about it, but there are just too many people who are profiting off what we are doing now. Plus, it all sounds very hard.

"Sure, I know America beat Tojo, we crushed Hitler, we put a man on the moon. But incrementally reducing C02 emissions? That sounds like a lot of work."

Colbert has a better idea. Just have another piece of "cheese cake, crawl in to bed, and wait for death"...
