The Washington Post Has Its Head in the Sand
You may have heard that Washington, D.C. experienced a horrific wind and rainstorm on Friday evening. I heard the mayor there say it was like a hurricane without the warning and the ability to prepare.
Power is out to thousands of homes.
Climatologists are linking the storm, known as a derecho, to climate change so the irony of these two side-by-side Washington Post headlines couldn’t be more profound:
On the left, “AN OIL RUSH UP NORTH” and on the right, “Outages could last for days.”
Our kids will see this as an iconic example of how the powers that be were silent even while evidence of climate changed slapped them upside the head.
