This column by John Mott-Smith is republished from the Davis Enterprise.
Two apparently unrelated news articles caught my attention recently. In one, a South Korean ferry sinks with hundreds losing their lives in part because the captain and many of the crew allegedly told passengers to stay put, don’t worry, while the ship sank and they abandoned ship.
The other article was about a new report from the National Climate Assessment, assembled over three years and involving more than 300 scientists. The report basically says that the effects of climate change are beginning to show themselves here and now and lays out on a state-by-state and region-by-region basis just what those effects are. In response, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calls the report “alarmist.”
I may be simple, but aren’t alarms meant to be sounded when there’s an emergency? That’s their purpose. It would have been much better if the South Korean crew had sounded an alarm. It would be better if Congress, or at least many of its members, could hear the alarm currently blaring from the scientific community.
