Let me get this straight…Texas is experiencing an “unprecedented drought” and a “never-before-seen wildfire situation” and the Texas legislators propose cutting funds for firefighters, slashing the Texas Forest Service budget by “almost $34 million in budget cuts over the next two years, roughly a third of the agency’s total budget” and instead Governor Rick Perry deals with the problem by proposing three “days of prayer for rain”.

Thanks to Joe Romm for pointing this bit of incredible naive stupidity out to me: Prayer as an adaptation strategy: Texas plans to cut budget of agency battling record wildfires.

Somebody, please please please tell me its not really true.
