Eternal Summer

This is an interesting chart from over at Talking Points Memo.

It shows the numbers of record high and low temperatures being set yearly over the past 60 years or so. Not surprisingly to most of us, we are now setting record high temps at twice the rate of record low temps (we should expect these numbers to be roughly equal).

But it's all a hoax, right? Or maybe it's just as Stephen Colbert says: Reality has a well-known liberal bias.

I think we'll need several *major* climate disasters - worse than China or Pakistan - before most people will feel the need to do anything about it.... Which will be too late (of course).

As a species I'm afraid that we're proving on a daily basis that we're simply too stupid to survive. Not to put too fine a point on it - we're screwed.
