So, how do you get your mind off the methane clathrates?

Correspondent Bill Blakemore blogs about covering global warming full-time for ABC News:

There are remarkably few of us mainstream professional journalists covering global warming, given the enormity of the story. This is, after all, a story in which the most credible scientists now say life on earth could become unbearable for most humans - widespread famine and political chaos, possibly even within the lifetime of today's toddlers - if we don't soon curb greenhouse gas emissions.
