Gem of the day

Mitt Romney makes it clear, one last time, that he has no idea how big a threat climate change and environmental degradation are to the American economy (via MSNBC):

"I’m not in this race to slow the rise of the oceans or to heal the planet. I'm in this race to heal the American people."

Okay Mitt - go ahead and try doing that without dealing with the impacts of more natural disasters, rampant inequality, higher and more volatile prices from an oil-based economy, toxic pollution and food deserts for the poor.

And you can start by ignoring the $22 trillion the Clean Air Act has since saved the U.S. in healthcare costs.
