Thom Hartmann: If facts don't slap you with reality of climate change - then maybe tornadoes will
There were reports of over 130 tornadoes touching down in just one night - last night - in America. It was the biggest and most deadly monster storm to hit America in nearly 40 years - when more than 300 people were killed back in 1974. And with the death toll still rising - last night's storm could surpass that deadly high-water mark. Also - three nuclear reactors at Browns Ferry nuclear power plant were knocked off power in the storms - luckily the NRC confirmed that backup generators came on properly to just barely avert a Fukushima-like disaster in America. So how much more evidence do climate deniers need to understand that our planet is entering dangerous times as a result of our pollution? The facts can't be denied and here they are.
