The ‘Greatest Hoax’ Strikes Florida


Denying climate change doesn’t stop its devastating effects.

By Nicholas Kristof

Opinion Columnist

Oct. 10, 2018

SNIPPET:

“One of the most preposterous hoaxes in the history of the planet,” scoffed Rush Limbaugh of Palm Beach. Gov. Rick Scott’s administration went so far as to bar some agencies from even using the term “climate change,” according to the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting (Scott denied this).

Myopic Floridians have plenty of company. President Trump dismissed climate change as a hoax “created by and for the Chinese.” Senator James Inhofe , a Republican of Oklahoma, “disproved” climate change by taking a snowball onto the Senate floor and noting that it was chilly outside; using similarly rigorous scientific methods , he wrote a book about climate change called “The Greatest Hoax".

Alas, denying climate change doesn’t actually prevent it. North Carolina passed a law in 2012 prohibiting the use of climate science in certain state planning, yet that didn’t intimidate Hurricane Florence last month. And banning the words “climate change” isn’t helping Florida now.

Some folks will say this isn’t the moment for politics. But don’t we have a responsibility to mitigate the next disaster?

Prof. Michael E. Mann of Penn State told me that Hurricane Michael should be a wake-up call. “As should have Katrina, Irene, Sandy, Harvey, Irma, Florence,” he added wryly. “In each of these storms we can see the impact of climate change: Warmer seas means more energy to intensify these storms, more wind damage, bigger storm surge and more coastal flooding.”

THE DAILY IMPACT

CHRONICLING THE CRASH OF THE INDUSTRIAL AGE

No Time for Optimism

By Tom Lewis | October 10, 2018 | Climate

There’s a dumb old joke about an optimist who falls off a 40-storey building and is heard saying, as he passes the 20th floor, “Well, nothing bad has happened yet.” We have met the optimist, and he is us.

The optimist is, for example, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Policy, which this week issued a report to a world that has not yet begun to implement the agreed-upon changes needed to hold global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. Two years after that target was set by 195 nations, after years of negotiations, at the Paris climate agreement, the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, the primary drivers of climate change, are still rising. There is no hope of limiting climate change to two degrees. But it would be so much nicer, says the IPCC now, to hold the increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

In other words: I started trying to lose 40 pounds a year ago, I haven’t lost any weight at all, so now I’ve decided to try to lose 50 pounds. Continue reading → Or hear Podcast 🔊

Trump 🦀 Admits Climate Change Is Real but Believes 'It'll Change Back Again'   

“I 🦀 don’t think it’s a hoax.” 

SNIPPET:

The president suggested that fighting climate change would be economically ruinous, costing “millions and millions of jobs, a claim that has been repeatedly debunked.

In fact, the renewable energy sector hired Americans at 12 times the rate as the overall economy in 2017, and fighting climate change could add $26 trillion to the global economy through a mix of jobs, health care savings, energy efficiency, and resilient environments.

The interview took place days after Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida panhandle, and Trump expressed doubt that the storm was made worse by climate change, suggesting that scientists making that argument have an ulterior “political agenda.”

Deadly Flooding 💧 in Texas Causes Dramatic 🌊 Bridge Collapse

By Olivia Rosane

Two people have died in flooding in Central Texas that caused a bridge to collapse, CNN reported Wednesday.

Heavy rains led to flooding where the Llano River and the Colorado River meet in Kingsland, Texas. Flood waters rushed over the 2900 bridge for hours before it collapsed.

Residents in the area were ordered to evacuate Tuesday, and Llano County Emergency Management Coordinator Ron Anderson warned them on Wednesday not to return to their homes too quickly.

Bridge Collapse VIDEO:


"Texas is taking immediate action to respond to the threat of recent severe weather and flooding across the state," Texas Gov. Greg Abbot said in a statement Tuesday as he issued a state disaster declaration for 18 impacted counties.

The Texas flooding in the latest in a year of extreme weather events.

"[First] wildfires during the summer, now flooding," Kingsland resident bentley_n_frostie wrote on an Instagram post showing a video of the flooding.

Climate Feelings: Solstagia and Do’ikayt, Grief and Anger

The IPCC’s 1.5 report seems to have ripped open the never-quite-healed psychic wound that comes from a daily reckoning with the end of the world.


While Trump 🦀 seems content to rely on his “instinct for science,” doubling down on his  “feelings over facts” worldview, the climate community is currently dealing with the feelings the 1.5 report brings up.

Over at Grist this week, Eric Holthaus writes on climate grief- how he’s handling it and how others have wrestled with the psychological implications of knowing that millions of lives are quite literally on the line. Holthaus gives his standard advice to talk about your feelings with a friend--though admits that he has “no idea whether or not this is the right advice for everyone.”

In response, Rebecca Leber tweeted that instead of grief’s “acceptance of the status quo,” it’s “past time to get and stay angry.    

Anger is certainly justifiable, given the multi-million dollar campaign by fossil fuel companies to convince the public that there are very fine scientists on both sides of the debate and forestall regulations, even decades after their own scientists acknowledged the problem with their pollution. We don’t need new vocabulary to deal with profit-driven corruption, but we do need some new language for the feelings this destruction has wrought.

For example, Zoë Schlanger at Quartz wrote recently about how “in 2018, life can feel in need of a dirge for the whole world, with scarcely the language to write it.” As the climate changes, and our world changes, so must our language change to reflect these new challenges.

We know nostalgia, the homesick longing borne of time or distance between where you are and where you feel most like yourself. But what happens when you don’t leave home, but your home leaves you? When the steady seasons begin to shift and reliable rains dry up or turn to deluge? How do you capture the feeling of this new abnormal?

The answer may be “solastagia,” a term coined in 2005 by philosopher Glenn Albrecht. It’s a nod to nostalgia while combining the concepts of solace (comfort in the face of stress) as well as desolation, with the Greek root of -algia, for pain and suffering. When the constants in our environmental lives can no longer be relied on, it feels as if our homes change and leave us, even though they don’t go anywhere. It is, in Albrecht’s words, “the pain experienced when...the place where one resides and that one loves is under immediate assault (physical desolation)...the erosion of the sense of belonging (identity) to a particular place and a feeling of distress (psychological desolation) about its transformation.

“In short, solastalgia is a form of homesickness one gets when one is still at ‘home’.”

After defining the term, Albrecht discusses how it’s all-too applicable to indigenous peoples who have been sidelined as their ancestral homes are paved over. Sadly, they’re hardly the only group of marginalized people whose struggles may provide some inspiration or understanding for our collective grappling with solastagia.

For that, we turn to a lengthy New York Review of Books piece by Molly Crabapple about her “Great-Grandfather the Bundist.” The Bund, Crabapple explains for those of us not well-steeped in early 20th century Jewish history, was a “humane, socialist, secular and defiantly Jewish” political party that “celebrated Jews as a nation,” but were “irreconcilably opposed to the establishment of Israel as a separate Jewish homeland in Palestine.” Instead, they believed that “the diaspora was home,” and embraced a concept known as do’ikayt, or “hereness.”

Though Crabapple focuses on the history of the Bund through the lens of her own rebel-turned-artist great-grandfather Sam Rothbort, the idea of “hereness” is one that can perhaps provide, if not comfort, then solidarity, among the climate-concerned diaspora.

Crabapple questions what do’ikayt means “in our age of mass migration” and answers that it is a way “to find the self in exile, to square homeland with the freedom to leave.”



For the climate community 🕊 , hereness may be able to transform our solastagia into power, and provide a unifying sense that we fight not only to preserve a vanishing past, but to protect an emerging future. That despite national boundaries or political disagreements, a larger purpose sustains us. This battle to protect our collective global homeland will be waged in blood and sweat and tears, with our wins and losses echoing for thousands of years as excess carbon dioxide molecules cycle through the atmosphere.


This struggle is indelibly etched into the geologic record, but there is hope still, for the final score is not yet written in stone.

Protestors Call Out Hypocrisy At Equator Principles Meeting

October 22nd, 2018 by Carolyn Fortuna

SNIPPET:

In October, 2018, major global banks met to revise the Equator Principles, which are industry-led due diligence standards to prevent banks from endorsing environmentally and socially harmful projects. In what many see as a duplicitous move, however, several of the Equator Principles signatories also continue to support Enbridge, the Canadian company behind the Line 3 tar sands pipeline.

Protests took place during the October Equator Principles Association meeting, and activists called out the Enbridge-funding banks for complicity in violating Indigenous rights and promoting investments in dirty energy. The protestors made visible the needs for financial institutions to be held accountable for investments that are incompatible with the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate as well as to end Indigenous rights abuses and climate chaos.

Teens Rise Up for Action on Climate

The Ask

October 17, 2018 - by John R. Platt

We asked one of the teenage organizers of the recent Zero Hour Youth Climate March what they’ve learned and how others can follow in their footsteps.

SNIPPET:

What’s your biggest takeaway from these first events? Are politicians or the heads of corporations listening?

You can never really tell when politicians are listening because it’s their job to pretend like they’re listening. It’s their job to make you think that they’re considering everything that you tell them, that everything that you say is important to them. I hope that they have at least heard what we are saying. I know that after the lobby day at least their staff knows who we are, and saw our faces and heard our voices.

The other day I was talking to Senator Heinrich at a League of Conservation Voters event. He said that he knew us, that he’d heard of us. That meant the world to me and Jamie [Margolin, the founder of Zero Hour]. I don’t have words for it. I looked him in the eye and I knew that he had genuinely heard of us and that this wasn’t just a tactic. I was so grateful that we had recognized by someone with so much influence in our government.

Zero Hour advocates for common-sense climate legislation. What does that look like to you?

The term “common sense” is tough. Not everyone knows what you’re talking about. In the case of common-sense climate legislation, however, it really is what just about anyone might think it is. All we want is what makes sense. All we want is effective change. All we want for the people of this world is protection and safety. That’s all anyone wants. That’s what makes it common sense, because everyone at least wants a good life for themselves.
