Over the past few days, looking at the temperature maps across the nation and the epic wildfires in the American West, I wonder: how much more ignorance can our nation stand?
The Indian subcontinent is also -- surprise -- in the midst of a heat wave where it has been the hottest summer on record. It was 108 in New Delhi the other day. Some parts of India are headed to temperatures higher than 122 degrees. "Everyone in India is talking about the temperatures", according to a recent UK Guardian report. Bear in mind (Senator Marco Rubio, who still will not talk with climate change scientists), the last forty years have been the prelude: we are living through the opening act of climate change.
Let's see if Rush and Glenn can turn the temperature down. And if they can't, what do their conservative right-wing listeners propose as an alternative to denial? We are listening.
