Revkin on Tornadoes, Vulnerability and Preparedness

Andy Revkin has a great post up on tornadoes, vulnerability and preparedness.  He writes:

I saw barely a mention of these realities in recent posts by climate-oriented bloggers on the tornado outbreak.
Please read the whole thing, it's well worth it.
