Connecting the Dots

This NASA satellite photo accompanied a first-person account of an American witness to the Russian fires, which is well worth reading.

Here is an AP report that actually does a creditable job of explaining how current events around the globe are a result of global warming, which describes climate scientists as too "shy" to connect the dots between climate change and extreme, record-smashing weather events - Bravo!

And don't let's forget that the US Midwest is flooding as well...

I can't help but wonder when this sobbing woman with her pleasure motor boat and her son in his Harley-Davidson t-shirt will connect their profligate fossil-fuel burning recreational activities with disasters like floods, intense heat-waves, heavy precipitation, wildfires, and food shortages...

Now that I think of it, there was a comment on CP that said something like, time to think outside the box. There are no shortages...of food, water, fuel, or minerals...there is a SURPLUS of people...
