Thank goodness we're on top of this!

Well, this is the opposite of comforting:
"The coldest years now are warmer than the hottest years before 1998." Those are the words of World Meteorological Organization secretary-general Michel Jarraud at the presentation of their latest report.

The WMO report says that, looking at the data from January to September, 2013 will be the seventh warmest year in recorded climate history.
But fortunately we've got just the people you want to handle this kind of problem.
Over 56 percent — 131 members — of the current Republican caucus in the House of Representatives deny the basic tenets of climate science. 65 percent (30 members) of the Senate Republican caucus also deny climate change. What this means is that they have made public statements indicating that they question or reject that climate change is real, is happening, and is caused by human consumption of fossil fuels.
That's really, uh, not awesome, is there an even more depressing kicker?

Fifty or sixty years from now, history will record them all--and others--as villains.

Unfortunately, fat lot of good that will do.

Thank goodness we have a Moderate Republican in charge. You know their solutions to the tough problems are the best.

They won't believe in global warming until hula skirts are the uniform of choice in the halls of Congress.

Sadly for all of us, physics doesn't give a flying fuck what Republicans think.
