Climate Change: Finally Matter-of-Fact?

I was looking at this Mexican hurricane picture and its caption in a news photo gallery and instead of thinking: “what’s the damage?” I found myself wondering how long they had. Is it just me or have we finally reached that point where enough minds acknowledge climate change that it’s not just perceived as a point of debate but as something omnipresent, accelerating and obvious?

Tropical storm Polo barreled nearer on Friday to the Mexican Pacific resort of Los Cabos where thousands of troops were restoring order following widespread chaos caused by Hurricane Odile at the start of the week.)
