When John McKeeby looks at the Schoharie Creek, he sees a very different waterway than the one that existed prior to tropical storms Irene and Lee. In some places, the Schoharie is deeper, and in some places it’s more shallow. In the shallower channels, the water moves more quickly than it used to, because it has less space in which to flow.

Ever look up and see those planes leaving sky-long trails of pollution in the upper atmosphere? I bet nobody figures they have anything to do with anything, eh?

As you said: too bad the 'left side' of the spectrum doesn't get it.
