Global warming is burning down the American West – Global warming – Salon.com

You know it’s funny how all we hear is this talk of rugged individualism and the solitary, “don’t tread on me” ethos of the West, and then when their states catch fire it’s all about the scramble for federal aide from the elitist blue states on the coasts.  Talkin’ secession out of one side of your mouth and asking for more federal dollars from the other may fly in Texas, but it’s getting pretty old back east.  Make no mistake, we’re all Americans, and we help each other when we’re in need, that’s our way, but one gets a little tired of being lectured about the “junk science” of climate change by people who swear the earth is 6,000 years old and then being asked to bail them out when the golf course they built in the middle of the desert burns down.
