…Hurricane Rita, the next major storm of this projected high intensity hurricane season – a Category 5, the 3rd most powerful storm on record, ever – isn’t the last?

How long will take, how many big storms, to trigger serious, concerted, world-changing action on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change? (The physics, after all, is clear.)
How will history, the electorate, the courts, and the marketplace deal with those who’ve dithered, dissembled and delayed?
