  1. They should be so lucky. Global warming poses no challenge that we can detect.
    Raising responsible, happy children to adulthood, dealing with debt and career issues, being a good sweetheart to husband or wife, all the challenges adults have faced since written history — those are the grand challenges.

  2. It should be rephrased to “only science challenged children” will have a problem with Global warming.

  3. TED = people spending other people’s money dreaming up cute but wildly impractical solutions for things that are not problems, while ignoring/suppressing the easy solutions to real problems.

  4. Okay, humanity has mixed results on these things, but we’ve only been to the police station with ours once…my dad had eight kids and he only went to the police station once, plus the cops came to the door one other time.
