Oct. 10--Virginia is one of only 14 states with a finalized plan to prepare for and adapt to climate change, but so far it has completed only two of its original 43 goals.

That's the assessment of the Georgetown Climate Center, which launched an online tool Thursday for the public to track where each state stands in addressing the widespread effects that scientists predict will come with a changing climate. The center is part of the Georgetown University Law Center in D.C.

"People want to know what their leaders are doing to prepare for climate change impacts, such as storms and rising seas," Vicki Arroyo, the center's executive director, said in a release. "This tool provides transparency and enables individuals and communities to track state progress."

(This crap is pretty funny until you realize these morons are serious about this stuff.)
