global warming: slow dancing?

picture-1Even as I was filing my story on the latest from the climate-change frontier, news was pouring in.

The EPA was preparing the way for CO2 regulation by declaring greenhouse gases a danger to human health, and fascinating panels about adaptation to global warming were being held in Washington.

(And, yes, i still prefer “global warming” to the more nebulous, Republican creation, “climate change.”)

Then the first climate-change-related bill of the 111th was filed. (Good old Lloyd Doggett, one of those good Greens who don’t get enough praise.) I had to grab what I had and ship it. The fact the landscaping is changing so rapidly is a good sign, but to what end?

I guess that’s where my global warming story “Last Chance for a Slow Dance?” takes off. As usual, Chuck did a fantastic job on the artwork (check lovely flower-clenching cranium above left). Don’t much care for political flacks blaming me for their failures to represent, but, you know, whatever…

You can find a few audio files and links to the blogs that helped shape “Slow Dance” at the bottom of that page. Oh, and that way cool computer modeling program from University of Arizona that charts what X-level of sea rise will mean anywhere on the U.S. coast.

Have fun.
