At some point I heard G.W. said this is worse than 9/11. Damn right. About 10 times worse. So where's the declaration of war on climate change? Where's the brave words on defending the world and cutting down carbon emissions? Did I miss something?
Its simple, you know. Extreme phenomena are a consequence of climate change. You don't stop climate change, you get more extreme phenomena. So maybe before you make a big hoo-ha about sending a man to the next planet, you want to do something about making this one livable?
At least the storm shut down some oil rigs, and pushed the prices up a bit.
