Dave - Apart from all the physical/environmental stresses that bode ill for the future of Americans along with the rest of the global population, how much longer can our society withstand the pressures building through grossly unequal income distribution?

If "From 2009 to 2011 ... Top 1% incomes grew by 11.2% while bottom 99% incomes shrunk by 0.4%" and this pattern continues (c.99.99% certainty), it seems to me that "life" as we know it will fracture and dissipate through violent upheaval way before climate change makes the planet hostile to survival.

Maybe we should roll out the welcome mat for a large meteor to avoid unnecessary prolonged pain.
