October 2018 Update

I’ve been dragging my feet on posting a new blog report (sorry). There’s just too much going on right now to add to the mix. I paid very close attention to the Kavanaugh hearings (guilty as charged) and am in shock with at least half the nation that this serial sexual abuser was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

A lot of things did NOT happen as they should have. Only 9 witnesses were ‘interviewed’ by the FBI after the week-long delay on the hearings was requested (and Christine Ford was NOT one of them). Trump directly interfered with the witness list and who the FBI could and could not talk to during this “delay”. In retrospect, that was their plan (the Rape Party) all along, and now we know why. Nearly 50 additional witnesses offered to come forward and testify against Kavanaugh – not a single one of these people were interviewed in the ‘allowed’ period. But several published their statements in the newspapers anyway.

Methane Lakes

This is what a methane lake looks like:

Up in the Arctic, inland lakes are bubbling up methane directly into the atmosphere. As a greenhouse gas, this is bad bad news.

Scientists have been puzzling over a dramatic spike in atmospheric methane levels, which since 2006 have averaged 25 million tonnes more of the gas per year. Walter Anthony’s study found that Arctic lakes could more than double this increase as well.

Malignantly Useless

One of the super shitty things about life is that you will lose everything that you have ever loved. It doesn’t matter what it is either, you’re going to wind up losing it. Either you die or they die, and one of you is now lost, forever gone. Never to be seen or heard again. All you will ever have left is the memories, and even these memories will fade out over time.

Carbon Tax

I’m sure that we’ve all read where a “carbon tax” will reduce fossil fuel use. This seems to be one of the basic mantra’s of the carbon tax proponents. I disagree.

I remember when gasoline was really cheap (.25 cents a gallon) as a kid. Wages weren’t too good back then either. Since then, additional taxes and endless price increases have been enacted on fossil fuels (primarily gasoline and diesel). Consumption of these fuels has skyrocketed. We’re now burning 100,000,000 barrels a day or thereabouts (almost there). That is an ENORMOUS amount of fuel – and carbon – being spewed into the atmosphere.

Climate Thoughts

Some thoughts on what humanity is facing as the world continues to warm…

The climate won’t “stabilize” for a very, very long time, far, far past the lifespans of your great, great, great, great, great, great, great… well, you get the idea. Therefore, humanity should be making mitigation and adaption efforts the #1 priority right now, with a focus on food production in a hellish world at the top of a very long list of “to do’s”.

The Carbon Future

We now, in the year 2018, have a carbon problem of such gargantuan size and severity that it now presents an extinction level threat to most, if not all life on Earth no matter what we now do.

This problem remains totally unsolved. This dilemma facing all of humanity, indeed all of life on Earth is truly monumental. It staggers our ability to imagine the scale, scope and complexity of this threat. We’re still trying to come to grips with what this really means. Numerous past articles have tried to do exactly that – this is yet another attempt.

Tin Foil Hattery

The US military is keenly aware of climate change and the risks associated, despite rampant interference and denial by the Trump Administration.

It’s occurred to me (putting on tin-foil hat) that the US government doesn’t want people to know what climate change actually means, and how it will drastically affect the American way of life. But this is useless speculation. The nefarious “plans to depopulate the world” aren’t at all what the connedspiracy idiots claim (and this very group denies climate change).
