Fire, Floods, and Fear. Oh My!

August 12, 2010

With unbearable heat and uncontrolled fires scorching and choking Russia, record heat waves sweeping much of the southeast USA, and devastating floods displacing millions in Pakistan and China, I gotta wonder. What part is global climate change having in these most recent disasters?

Since scientists have been demonized by the radical right, has the conversation on what responsibilities developed nations have to lower our energy consumption and pollution dissipated? It seems that recent climate change talks in Bonn didn’t make much progress in bringing countries together to try and stave off increased impacts from climate change.

Unfortunately, some people have chosen to disregard the warnings of the majority of the scientific community to support the industry-backed scientific harlots who seem to buck  prevailing opinions to become the darlings of the reactionary right. How pathetic is that?
