Hurricane Ike aftermath in Texas.



The national media seems to have moved on quickly, but the Houston Chronicle has extensive coverage. The photos are hard to believe.

Many in Illinois are still without power, and nearly every house in Carbondale has a big pile of limbs on the curb.

It's inconceivable to me that we would have so much coastal infrastructure at such risk. Are we going to have a Katrina every couple of years? What role is climate change playing in frequency and intensity of this storm?

Midwestern rivers are flooding in response to Ike's rainfall.
