The Blind Leading the Blind

This is the front-page headline in my local paper this morning.

Weird Weather

(The headline on the website says "Year of weather extremes ends with plenty of precipitation.")

Yet, after discussing the entire year in detail and using phrases like "above average," "in spite of a strong La Nina weather event," "a year of weather extremes," and "fifth-warmest December on record," not one mention was made of global climate change.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.

I had to comment. I didn't know there were others of us out there.

I am a liberal feminist, evangelical Christian mom of an 18-month-old boy.

And reading your blog makes me feel like I've found a kindred spirit and I want you to be my internet best friend. (No pressure, though. Maybe we can just sit together at lunch some time?)

This is my most recent feminist post.
