    It should go without saying a picture is worth a thousand words… but this sums it up nicely, and ominously.

    Thia image could be as equally meaningful for the Left: a white man, oblivious to the effects of climate change beyond his fence, continues his destructive behavior of caring for his environmentally irresponsible grass lawn with a high emission gasoline mower. It’s a veritable political Rorschach test.

    Epicaric,
    In terms of narrative, you are correct. In terms of reality… let’s just say that some catastrophes are “more real” than others.

    John,
    There is no doubt. Maybe the gentleman pictured will later shower and go out for a delightful Thai meal before the storm levels his home. Then it will have all been worth it. So I have been told.
