Houston, We Have a Problem

A Gary Larsen cartoon set in a dungeon once included the text that said, "Beatings will continue until morale improves!" Beatings will continue to sensitive areas of our planet in the form of severe weather events until we have faced the reality of the climate crisis and spent the considerable time and effort needed to solve the problem.
What a summer! We had very little rainfall, and our weather set a record streak of 63 days straight with temperatures over 70 degrees. The long-range forecast was for this dry and warm trend to continue through September. Then there was Houston.
