It was reported in 2007 that NASA scientists had developed a new climate model indicating that the most violent storms and tornados would become more common as the Earth’s climate warms. The model was developed at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. I have to wonder if the federal government’s failure to address the climate change issue played a role in causing the violent storms, tornadoes and floods that have devastated much of the country in recent weeks. Never in my life has there been such a series of violent storms and floods in the U.S., and actually around the world.
I have great difficulty comprehending how the lobbyists for the big oil companies can say that we don’t have a most serious climate change problem. The best evidence of the warming is in Greenland and Antarctica where the polar ice caps are melting much faster than scientists once believed, described as “runaway rates.” This should make even the honest skeptics wonder what is causing all of this to happen. One way to deal with a problem is to “pretend it doesn’t exist.” Unfortunately, that has been the way the oil giants and their lap dogs in Congress have dealt with a most serious international problem. It’s time to take action, not just in Congress, but on an international scale, if we are going to save our planet for future generations.
