CLIMATE CHANGE - FROM WARNING IT'S COMING TO LIVING WITH IT NOW THAT IT'S HERE

 

From the link:

 

 

Globally, this is shaping up to be the fourth-hottest year on record. The only years hotter were the three previous ones. That string of records is part of an accelerating climb in temperatures since the start of the industrial age that scientists say is clear evidence of climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions.

 

And even if there are variations in weather patterns in the coming years, with some cooler years mixed in, the trend line is clear: 17 of the 18 warmest years since modern record-keeping began have occurred since 2001.

 

“It’s not a wake-up call anymore,” Cynthia Rosenzweig, who runs the climate impacts group at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said of global warming and its human toll. “It’s now absolutely happening to millions of people around the world.”

“I've learned in options trading simple is best and the obvious is often the most elusive to recognize.”

Automobile emissions are virtually non existent compared to the 1970's, could hardly breath walking down a busy street.

Most be something else like the sun getting hotter or something. I think China is a major contributor. I'm more concerned with the chemicals that are destroying quality of life. I think most diseases and debilitating conditions can be traced to synthetic chemicals.

 

 

People also ask
How many synthetic chemicals are there?
Industrial chemical production now tops 5-trillion pounds each year. There are more than 70,000 synthetic chemicals now in use, but fewer than 1,600 of them have been tested for carcinogenicity (Steingraber, p. 99).

A 289 million dollar settlement awarded against Monsanto today for Round up giving a man leukemia,

this is just Round up, there is much worse being used. And 5,000 pending cases for the same thing.

 

Toxic green algae off Florida today caused by pesticide run-off.

 

There is a high price to be paid for those nice plush green fescue lawns, people need to get back to good enough is good enough and

just mow their lawn as is. All this speed dialing Orkin the first bug they see, stupid, most pests will leave after a few months, at worst a couple years seasonally.

DNC repeals the ban on fossil fuel company donations to candidates that they passed 2 months ago. 

 

It's a measure of how serious Democrats are about retaking the House that they would throw one of their prime constituencies - global warming advocates - under the bus.

 

It's difficult to reconcile taking money from oil and coal companies while piously proclaiming Republicans the enemy of Mother Earth

Six big U.S. banks called for a “strong global climate agreement” with Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo arguing in a joint release that government action, in addition to private business investment, is needed to address climate change.

The discussion of global warming begins at 21:00

 

“the unreliability of the measurement magnifies as you move forward in time, obviously, because the errors accumulate, so if you go out 50 years the error bars around the projections are already so wide that we won’t be able to measure the positive or negative effects of anything we do right now, so how in the world are you going to solve a problem when you can’t even measure the consequence of your actions, how is that even possible?”
