Hundred Year Storms

As we hunker down for a foot of snow (with more to the northeast) it is well to understand that the exceptional weather of 2010 may be real evidence of atmospheric instability – of the effects of global warming.  This article discusses some of the evidence.  We’re experiencing “hundred year storms” every two or three years.  This is not to say that all hope is lost, that we’ve reached a tipping point.  But it is certainly time to get going – to cut CO2 emissions.  We are told that Pennsylvania’s new US senator does not believe in it.  We’d better get to work.
