Half a truth is often a great lie.

- Benjamin Franklin

Arrogance? Ignorance?

"We have risen to great heights of arrogance in our refusal to acknowledge that the earth is changing."

"Deeper than temperature and the extinction of the polar bear is the idea that we all share this beautiful, ailing planet, Democrats and Republicans alike."

"It's about understanding and embracing the fact that we don't own anything here. We are renters and that our lack of respect for the planet and the people inhabiting it will be the thing that takes us down, not simply the temperature or inevitable shortage of water."

Sheryl Crow's words of wisdom. [Read] Is it possible that the ultimate in arrogance is the suggestion we control the significance of this space orb? Sure, we are unable to find a cure for cancer or even the common cold, but do not let that stop us from believing that we control the beast as a whole. Arrogance? Ignorance?

The ignorance of one's arrogance.
