Another hero

Research meteorologist Tom Knutson of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's fluid dynamics lab in Princeton, N.J. used to warn "about the harmful effects of climate change and has even complained in the past about being censored by the Bush administration on past studies on the dangers of global warming." ( Now he is blowing from the other direction. In a recent study, he argues "against the notion that we've already seen a really dramatic increase in Atlantic hurricane activity resulting from greenhouse warming." ( One by one they're won over.

We don't know about Big Al, though. Now he even equates heroes who founded America and heroes of World War II's war against fascism to those who fight against global warming, a "third hero generation in American history." Yep, we are all sidekicks!
