In the meantime, following a summer of all-time record heat, all-time record drought, and all-time record wildfires to go with it all in the state, TX Governor and Republican Presidential front-runner Rick Perry so thoroughly denies the scientific consensus about global warming that, after 11 years as the state's chief executive, he has not met even once with Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon, the official Texas State climatologist, to discuss any of it.

For that alone, it seems to us, Perry ought to not only be disqualified for higher office, but should be impeached, if the Texas constitution allows it, for gross, and even criminal, negligence.
