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.

143 Million People May Soon Become Climate Migrants

I’ve been warning about this for years: 143 Million People May Soon Become Climate Migrants

Worth reading. The actual number is 2 billion or so. But not before the first several hundred million show up… somewhere.

The United States is not immune to climate refugees of our own, either. The entire Deep South and Southwest will become uninhabitable as wet-bulb temperatures exceed human survivability. No amount of cooling will be possible to make living in these locations doable.

It’s Not A 97% Consensus Now, it’s 100% – And Rush Limbaugh Says “Ignore It All”

As it turns out, the 97% “consensus” on human-caused climate change from our emissions is…… actually 100%.

A study of the 3% “deniers” that did not agree with human caused climate change reveals that they were all flawed in ways which demonstrated “non-repeatability” (their conclusions and results could not be repeated, making them non-scientific).

2 Rats x 3 Years = 482 Million Disease Carrying Rodents

I scan tons of articles for useful information. This one in particular stood out. It’s not often you’ll see a concern about pandemics or how they can come about, but this is a sobering fact:

Two breeding-ready rats can spawn an extended family of 482 million rats in just three years

Now mix those numbers into a highly populated, dense urban cities with most have major garbage collection problems. You get the idea. We’ve got another problem and it’s a big one.

Trump States Suffer Most – Poetic Justice?

In a interesting twist of ‘fate’ (if you can call man-made climate change such a thing), the Trump states will suffer the most under a warming world:

There are a few takeaway messages. First, the color scale is not symmetric – that is the orange and red values represent pretty large economic losses whereas the green values are notably smaller economic benefits. Secondly, there are more regions that will lose than there are that will win. When interpreting an image like this, we have to be cognizant of the fact that more people live in the Southeast than in the central west.
