The worst is yet to come

Kind of a "duh" headline for the NY Times article on the release of the latest IPCC report on climate change. Yeah, it's going to get a lot worse. The problem could have been fixed, and the very worst might still be avoided. But based on recent experience, we can expect an epic fail from the country that bears the greatest responsibility and is in the best position to lead, the United States. History will judge us very badly. And although there is plenty of blame to go around, reserve a special place in hell for the Republican Party. It really wasn't that long ago that John McCain was co-sponsor on a cap-and-trade bill. Now they are the party of denial, drill-baby-drill, and head-in-the-sand. Formerly the party of Teddy Roosevelt!
