Climate of Denial

Rolling Stone Magazine has posted an online commentary-- Climate of Denial --on the status of climate change thinking, current weather events, and needed actions. The author stated: “the nightly newscast is starting to resemble a nature hike through the Book of Revelation”. Indeed! The Magazine's print version will appear next month but an early read is highly recommended. Here are two maps from the article that were developed by NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) that illustrate the extent of current extreme droughts and predictions for droughts at the end of the 21st Century.

Have your elected representatives made action on climate change a major component of their political and economic agenda? WHB
