We are all frogs now

You know the story. If you drop a frog in boiling water it will hop out. But if you put a frog in cool water and warm it slowly, ever warmer, the frog will sit there not noticing the increasing warmth. It will stay right there until it boils to death, oblivious to what's happening in its little pond. We are that frog.

That is a pretty darn good analogy and could be applied to any number of problems we are facing. Not sure if the environmetal issue is one of them though.
