Environmental journalist Eugene Linden, in an excellent article in the Los Angeles Times, writes that climate change is already having bad effects, even (or perhaps especially) on states whose governors loudly sneer at anthropogenic global warming: Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Texas governor Rick Perry proclaimed three official days of prayer, in which the good citizens of Texas prayed fervently for rain, with predictable results.
Linden is the author of a 2007 book, The Winds of Change: Climate, Weather, and the Destruction of Civilizations.
The LA Times is a real newspaper. Too bad Las Vegas doesn't have one.
