Grasping at Straws and The Alien Invasion !

Climate Change is/will be the straw that breaks the camel's back, if the governments of the world cannot finally get their acts together. In the future of increasing damage caused by storms and weather events, there will be an increasing burden on all of our resources.

When you stop to think of it, Climate Change and its consequences will act the part an alien race in the science fiction scenario of "Alien Invasion that Makes the Countries of the Earth Work Together as One" which we have been so fond of over the past 60 years: Climate Change is something we should all be working together on now, but we do not.
I suppose if it came down to that and an alien race from Alpha Centauri did invade the Earth and offered the USA some sort of super-duper technology, we would let the UN and the rest fight their own battles while we took care of Numero Uno, believing that this was all due to our Exceptionalism!
