While I “get” why people complain about the effects of climate change, it’s hard to get on board with them when they insist on rebuilding in the exact same spots as before. You cannot keep doing the same things over and over again and expect different results. Especially so when climate change just means worse and worse every year.
The refusal by the Repugnatin leadership to ‘discuss climate change’ is downright criminal now. Claiming that this in an ‘inappropriate time’ is a pathetic attempt to declare that there is never a appropriate time to discuss what has become the nation’s #1 problem.
Not only should Trump be impeached, but every RepublicRat that denies climate change should be removed from office, asap. (Example: The president’s dismissal of scientific research is doing nothing to protect the livelihoods of ordinary Americans).
According to this study, Extreme Weather Can’t Change Climate Change Beliefs, even hurricanes will not change beliefs about climate change.
Those in denial stay in denial, no matters how fast the waters rise.
So this is going to mean what I’ve long suspected. Nothing much will actually get done about climate change, thereby committing the world to absolute, total catastrophe. There will be endless talk and discussion and a little action, but overall, we will refuse to accept reality.
This is another ominous development (found this over on Rice Farmer).
It’s got a limited reach – for now. But it’s still illegal and against the Constitution. Passed and approved. Trump also approved military equipment for domestic law enforcement, rolling back the Obama ban on this activity. So now we have martial law to look forward to – while they kick your door down without probable cause or Constitutional authority.
Desdemona has an article title “Global sea level rise accelerates since 1990 – Greenland ice largely responsible for the accelerating pace of sea-level rise”
“The annual rate of sea level rise increased to 3.3 millimeters (0.13 inch) in 2014 – a rate of 33 centimeters (13 inches) if kept unchanged for a century”
It is this kind of bogus reporting that continues to deceive a uncaring public. The take away is “oh, it’s just 13 inches over a hundred years, no big deal” when the REAL sea level increase will be over 9 feet (108 inches) in that time period.
If Donald Trump has a dangerous mental illness, according to a group a psychiatrists, what does this say about his supporters?
Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country.
Phys.org has a new article on the methane clathrate issue. It’s an easy read – suggest you read this before finishing my post here.
I’m going to jump right to the point, assuming you’ve now read the article. It is this quote:
“We are now witnessing early warning signs of major methane release. If it gets out of control, there will be nothing humans can do to prevent the planet overheating quite rapidly.”
I used to follow some sailing blogs, which eventually led me to some blogs about island life. This is a sad story about how one beautiful island is being ruined.
But like I’ve said so many times before, nobody cares. The cruise ships, tourist industry and even the locals are all busy at work – all a part of the ongoing destruction.
If you want to know what the future is going to be like, just put this picture in your mind: a big, gigantic garbage heap, piled as high as the heavens. Underneath it all, glued to an endless array of screens will be some very pale, fat humans surrounded by even more garbage. Nothing else will be alive other then cockroaches and rats, even the very air will be toxic to breathe, so the air-filtration systems and air conditioners will be working overtime.
It was Joe Romm himself (not a scientist) and many climate scientist that kept spewing the 2°C nonsense for years and years. Their own blinders now (finally) being removed, NOW they claim that this is dangerous – and yet they STILL pretend that we can limit warming under 2°C!
I have always found Romm refusing to admit to the horrible truth. He gets plenty of press coverage and has plenty of opportunity to tell us like it really is – and yet he still weakly pretends that we are still going to be ok.
