I dreamed Salt Lake's federal building was closed for a day due to a mass killing the slow violence of climate change. While not as sensational as the shootings in Newtown, Conn., climate change produces more visceral deaths:
Climate change kills 4.5 million people a year, and developing countries are disproportionately affected. Climate change is not a future problem; it's a present-day global justice war.
This war is only beginning to raise alarm in more developed countries, due to storms like Hurricane Sandy and increased wildfires in the West.
