     As the blockbuster "Noah"  debuted in theaters across the country these past few weeks, a hysterical outcry from angry Christian fundamentalists and militiant atheists alike has ensued. The polarization of people into distrusted and detested opposing "enemies" breaks us down not just within the meaningless world of pop culture, but also in the crucial political arena.Seemingly no divisive force drives us further politically apart from unified solution building than differing religious oreintations. Furthermore, seemingly no issue which holds as much potential to do harm to the people of our world, as the human impact on enviornment (and most specifically climate) does, is more shunned by religious conservatives as an issue we need not address because it is some sort of "alternative to religion" promoted by the "secular world."
      Today we talk about where the attitudes towards the movie "Noah" eminate from, and what we can learn from them as it pertains to what it will take to gather the poltical will to accept the reality of, and push for solutions to, the most daunting long term problem our world, our species, and it's political entites face.
