Global Warming: So what?

A recent article in Nature reported in the Washington Post asserts that the recent environmental disasters around the world cannot be attributed solely to the normal fluctuations in the weather but bear the imprint of human-induced climate change. For those of us who live in places like Texas where the “disaster” amounted to a very pleasant week off from school, one might well ask, “So what. If this is what global warming means then we can live with it.” Of course, the sad part is that those who bear the brunt of the effects of climate change are not those who, many scientists believe, are responsible for its cause. Until the effects of climate change are felt at home, there is no incentive to change; and by the time the effects of climate change are felt at home, it will be too late to change.
