The Profoundest Evil
Yes, this will be the hottest year globally in recorded history, and it's accompanied by widespread drought in Africa, drought in Australia, a heat wave in India and Pakistan that likely killed several thousand people. It's already here, and it's just going to get worse.
Sorry Atrios, but your "worse humans in America" awards trivialize the real worst humans in the world. They are fossil fuel industry executives, including the executives of Exxon who have known since 1977 that their industry would eventually destroy much of civilization, and who chose to spend millions to cover up and deny this fact so they could keep getting richer.
You know what? That may actually be worse than Hitler.
