I strongly suspect that there is only one true Revolution possible for the human species - past, present, future.

"Do unto others ALL that you would have them do unto you," is how Jesus Lived it, and how He or his followers, said it.

Is rebuilding in hurricane zones wise? Sandy is the future. As carbon dioxide emissions blast past worst-case scenarios, rising sea levels and storm surges will reshape every U.S. coastline.
