These articles on the California wildfires have caught my attention recently.

Those fires in California look more serious than ever. I think the New York Times just updated the evacuations number to 500,000. The photos say to me, be very glad I’m not evacuating my home in San Diego. I believe that Global Warming… ehem Global Climate Change, as Karl Rove has instructed us to call it, is very real. Why are folks so aggressively fighting the science and research? I recent saw the film An Inconvenient Truth. It’s on point with a powerful message that I believe should a least be heard. Evidently the filmmaker was in a room with Karl Rove not to long ago and it got ugly e.g. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/23/washington/23rove.html Until some serious consideration is put into global warming, we’ll be enduring all kinds of folks ignoring the issue until it their homes that are about to go up in flames.
