Climate Change: %u2018This Is Just the Beginning%u2019 - Salon.com
- Evidence supporting the existence of climate change is pummeling the United States this summer, from the mountain wildfires of Colorado to the recent âderechoâ storm that left at least 23 dead and 1.4 million people without power from Illinois to Virginia. The phrase âextreme weatherâ flashes across television screens from coast to coast, but its connection to climate change is consistently ignored, if not outright mocked. If our news media, includingâor especiallyâthe meteorologists, continue to ignore the essential link between extreme weather and climate change, then we as a nation, the greatest per capita polluters on the planet, may not act in time to avert even greater catastrophe.
