    The climate community needs rock stars and Hayhoe is that and more.

    She gives a really good glimpse of how deep the ostriches have thrust their collective heads. Just as a non-trivial fraction of 1950’s North America willfully fell under the spell of McCarthyism, the same thing has happening over the past 30-years with the environment. Carl Sagan was correct when he said “Science is a way of thinking” so let me add this: “Politics is a way of not thinking” and adding religion to the mix only makes things worse. I wonder how much permanent damage will occur before the majority wakes up from “this madness”

    Thank heavens that they are teaching Climate Science in Texas Schools (there’s hope for us all yet !), and a good crystal ashtray is not to be sneezed at, has it got a petroleum company’s logo on it I wonder ?
