Earth to Rick Santorum: Don't forget where you live.

In a NY Times article: “The earth is not the objective,” Santorum said on “Face the Nation” on CBS News. “Man is the objective, and I think that a lot of radical environmentalists have it upside down.”

So where do we go if we screw up the Earth? I suppose one could vote for Newt Gingrich and hope for a trip to Moonbase Newt. Otherwise, I don't see the dichotomy between a worldview that realizes that our fate is intricately tied up with how we treat the environment on which our survival as a species ultimately depends.

Not to mention, past major climate changes have resulted in past major migrations. So much for "secure borders". Hah.

Will someone please put some adults in the room as far as controlling the quality of political rhetoric?
Don't shit where you eat.
