If you haven’t heard, Texas has been fighting massive wildfires this week. Yes, the state forced to pray for rain that denies climate science, for the most part (their state climate scientists don’t), is getting hit with tremendous natural disasters. We haven’t covered the Texas wildfires much (so little time, so much to cover), so thought I’d share this excellent coverage of the topic by Dr. Joe Romm of Climate Progress. Check it out (full repost below the top picture):
Here is irony befitting a Shakespearean tragedy. Gov. Rick Perry finally got what he called on all Texans to pray for — some rain – but it was almost entirely dumped elsewhere and the winds of Tropical Storm Lee merely served to stoke the most brutal wildfires anyone had ever seen.
