David Sirota on Climate Biting Back

David Sirota on how the climate is now biting us back:

As a wildfire/flash flood cycle ravages the American heartland, “the climate bites back” may be the 21st century’s karmic rejoinder to the hysterical screams of “freedom!” and “property rights!” when it comes to urban sprawl.

News flash to Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison, Wisconsin: even mother earth recognizes that the right to private property is limited by the common good.

P.S. And see John Atcheson at Common Dreams on how the karmic rejoinders to our abuse of the earth are "closing the book on civilization as we know it."
