Can Barack Obama save us from hell?

That’s the question, from an article in Britain’s Telegraph about the G8 meeting in Acquila, Italy.

The article quotes from a lecture by Prince Charles that the world had only 96 months to avoid irreversible climate change, which he called “the living hell” that “now looms on the horizon”.

How can he be so precise anyway?  Here in Maryland (suburban DC) we’ve been enjoying an unusually pleasant July, after an unusually cool and wet springtime — making it rather hard to believe in the climate doom we will face in a few short years.  Oh I know– what we’re experiencing is merely weather.  Quite irrelevant.

    You don’t seem quite convinced, Peter, that weather is not climate.
