McKibben received a "2010 Presidential Survey" on fourteen national issues that avoided any mention of physical realities across the earth, for instance, "that Moscow was shrouded in hot smoke, Pakistan was drowning, and a piece of ice roughly the size of A VERY LARGE THING NEAR YOU had broken off the Greenland ice shelf." Doesn't realistic normally include what is real?
