Betsy Kolbert is a national treasure

Read the whole thing, but the conclusion says it all:

The message from scientists at this point couldn’t be clearer: the world’s emissions trajectory is extremely dangerous. Goofball weathermen, Climategate, conspiracy theories—these are all a distraction from what’s really happening. Which, apparently, is what we’re looking for.

I don’t agree with everything in the piece (I’d say that cool weather in the US, but mainly the increased partisanship reflected in *all* polls and the economic concern still widespread in the US are probably more responsible than SwiftHack/climategate for the droopy poll numbers), but she certainly knows how to cut through the BS, doesn’t she?

H/t Phil Plaitt, whose post is worth a read itself.
