What Is Wrong With America

Be prepared to get your stupid on. The Atlantic discusses the trends and changes that have occurred in America.

The facts presented might surprise you. I do recommend you find the time to read this article all the way through. There are some real nuggets of observable truth in there. I don’t agree with a few of the statements of facts made, but the rest is spot-on.[...] Read More

Heatwaves Deaths Projected To Increase 5400%, Coastal Floods 3780%, Wildfires 138%, River Floods 54%, Windstorms 20%

You need to dig a little (read) to find this nugget in this article:

Deaths from heatwaves were projected to increase by 5,400 percent, coastal foods by 3,780 percent, wildfires by 138 percent, river floods by 54 percent and windstorms by 20 percent.  European heatwave deaths could skyrocket: climate study

Heatwaves are expected to do the worst damage, jumping from 11 people per million currently to about 700 per million.[...] Read More

Don’t Panic – Deadly Heatwaves Will Strike South Asia… this century

I have been warning about this sort of development for years:

In South Asia, a region of deep poverty where one-fifth of the world’s people live, new research suggests that by the end of this century climate change could lead to summer heat waves with levels of heat and humidity that exceed what humans can survive without protection.

Deadly heat waves could hit South Asia this century: study[...] Read More

Severe Disconnect From Reality

If you want to get your barf on, Scribbler’s article on the Tesla 3 release ought to do it – A Beautiful Machine to Change the World — Model 3 to Transform Global Automobile Markets, Open Pathway For Rapid Energy Transition (I do not link to Scribbler because he censors comments – a despicable practice he endorses to support his false narrative).[...] Read More

Selling The Apocalypse

Salon has an article about doomsday preppers and the hucksters behind this movement. Some may not agree, but the article is dead right. I’ve publicly come out against the false reasons that so many have embraced and the liars in the movement that are behind this. And I was right and still am – not a single ‘event’ that was claimed happened. But the prepper movement has died and hucksters are desperate to find another way to shove their products at you while fleecing your pockets.[...] Read More

Open Thread

A couple of articles found over on Desdemona:

Scientists foresee sharp rise in deadly heat stress as global temperatures climb – “Because the response is nonlinear, for each fraction of a degree the climate warms, the increase in heat stress is ever greater”

UW professor: The information war is real, and we’re losing it

The deceptions and lies being spread by the so-called alternative news sites like Infowars and others is winning the media war. I’ve always said that this sort of thing is not harmless, it is very harmful because of how people react to connedspiracy. This is directly related to the anti-science, anti-facts, anti-evidence claims and fabrications being promoted. In other words, thinking people are surrounded by complete morons in America.[...] Read More

Flirting With Disaster

Oh boy.

The Heartland Institute plans on contacting EVERY science teacher in the country. To do what, might you ask? To encouraging these teachers to consider and teach explanations for global warming that reject humans’ role in a changing climate.

This boils my blood, because the Heartland Institute has a long, long history of despicable practices and deceit. Their lies about the scientific consensus has long been taken to task, and yet they’re still regurgitation this crap and insisting this is taught to every child in the country. They’re siezing the political opportunity generated by the Trumpanzees and Trumpatollah and the miserable failure of the whore media which sold out America long ago.[...] Read More

News Bits

I spent a little time checking out the other news. We actually got some sunshine here (in between bouts of more rain) and I kept popping outside to enjoy it. I can actually see my dead garden now. And reach my greenhouse. I’ll be planting in there very soon. Yeah!

As always, if you really look at the news, there isn’t anything positive to report. There is however, always a lot of bad news, signs of a failing economy, angry citizens and more police-state tactics. More and more of the same, and always worse.[...] Read More

Party Affiliation and “Beliefs”

This is hilarious. It’s a Pew Research poll, that reveals how much Republican and Democrats differ on “science knowledge” and whether or not science is having any impacts on the two different groups:

Picture this: no matter what the science says, or even when these climatic events actually happen – Republicans refuse to change their “beliefs” about climate change.[...] Read More
