Another storm threatens the Gulf states.   Tropical depression Nate is expected to  reach the southern coast of the U.S. this weekend.  

Even though  97 percent of climate scientist declare that the climate of the world is warming; according to Scientific America 72 percent of Republican Senators and 57 percent of Republican Congress persons still deny climate change. 

Moderate Republicans list climate change near the bottom, at 21 of the 23 most important issues and conservatives list it as last.  

"The good thing about science is that it is true, whether or not you believe in it.
Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Eighty percent of Republicans deny any connection between human pollution and climate change.   



  1. The head-in-the-sand approach to reality isn't good for much, is it? Neither are those who are attached to those heads.

  2. I have explained climate change to my brother(republican) until I'm blue in the face and he still says it's a liberal conspiracy. Yeah, he listens to to Rush Windbag and Alex Jones.

  3. I just started reading a truly depressing book, James Hansen's Storms of My Grandchildren. He describes going into the first meeting of the Bush administration's Task Force on Climate. He went in feeling optimistic, despite knowing W had already announced they weren't going to comply with Kyoto. Then he met the Prince of Darkness and slowly realized that scientific fact meant nothing to people who were more interested in short term profit than they were in long term global survival.

  4. The most frustrating part is the knowledge that the technology exists to put a dent in this warming trend, and we aren't doing it.
