Tom Engelhardt discusses why the current administration and the mass media are both living in a "bubbledome of folly" when it comes to climate change.

"When it comes to weather news, it's been all-hurricane-all-the-time...And yet something was missing...Ignoring global warming -- and so any preparations to safeguard the world for our children and grandchildren -- is but another form of global terrorism...But in this behavior, as it happens, the Bush administration isn't alone. The American mainstream media has been a major aider-and-abettor in the process."
