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 â€śderechoâ€ť storm that left at least 23 dead and 1.4 million people without power from Illinois to Virginia. The phrase â€śextreme weatherâ€ť 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, includingâ€”or especiallyâ€”the 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.
