Congressman Ed Markey

is holding an emergency meeting tomorrow at 11am at Arlington Town Hall  in respect  of climate change and the impact thereof on the Northeast.
Kevin Knobloch, of the Union of Concerned Scientists will be there, so this is hardly gonna be a campaign rally.
I give Congressman Markey high marks for at least trying to initiate a discussion about climate change even in the aftermath of an avowed superstorm and in the final three days of a Presidential campaign, the man's heart is in the right place.
But I'd feel a whole lot better about the long term prospects of the climate change debate if similar meetings were being held in Miami Florida, Charleston SC and Norfolk VA.

At the very least we have to start thinking about counter measures in the North East Corridor, and that of course, means money.
