Venus, oh Venus

I guess other doomed planets have discovered this before us. When you are faced with global warming because you are burning fossil fuels it will prove impossible to stop the disaster because of the efforts of a small number of noisy rich evil people, and a somewhat larger, but still small, number of useful idiots who are very ignorant and noisy. No matter how scientifically advanced the planet it will prove impossible to overcome the resistance until runaway greenhouse effects make it too late. We are certainly not the first planet doomed by the ignorance equation, and we won’t be the last.
