It's frustrating for climate activists that some people seem to care more about Hollywood couples than global warming. America's obsession with Hollywood feels a bit like we're endlessly banging on the front door yelling "Fire!" -- only to be told, "Yes, we see the flames on the drapes, but America's Got Talent is on!"
Laughing was the moral equivalent of mocking someone for their stutter. Or telling a gay kid that he should never find love because you find that kind of sex icky. Or cheering on the police as they take a homeless veteran's shopping cart away, because you just want them to disappear. It. Was. Punching. Down.
