It really is scary how most people can only think short-term: they love the fact that it is 78 degrees in NYC in mid-March!  How wonderful!  Too bad it’s not always like this!

Yet they don’t see the long-term ramifications of this vis-a-vis anthropogenic climate change.

It is the old “frog in the pot” scenario.  If you boil water and drop a frog into it, he will jump out immediately.  However, if you put a frog in lukewarm water and gradually increase the heat, he will sit and burn to death.
