Yesterday, though I didn't get the chance to blog it, my latest Science Progress column went up. Entitled "Just Coasting," it's about the vulnerability of the US gulf states to climate change, and how government agencies are consistently failing to do their job to prepare us for it. The quotation in the title is, by far, my favorite part of the piece.

Can you believe that? You can read the entire item here.
