Taking the Earth's Temperature

 “Our Warm Regards,” a new podcast on climate issues hosted by meteorologist Eric Holthaus, released a new episode that discusses taking the Earth’s temperature. Click here for the latest episode. 


 
July 2016 Hottest Month Ever, NASA Shows

 Global temperatures in July were 0.84°C (1.51°F) above the 1950-1980 average, making it the hottest month since record keeping began, as well as the hottest July ever. The latest NASA data show that July is now the tenth consecutive record warm month, and 2016 is still on track to be the hottest year on record. Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies, expects July to be the last record warm month of 2016 as the effects of El Niño fade.

McKibben: It’s WWIII, We’re Losing   

 Bill McKibben, in an in-depth piece headlined “A World at War”, explains exactly why the Democratic Party platform commits to address climate change “on a scale not seen since World War II.” He stakes out a forward position for the party’s climate policy, writing,
Quote
“It’s not that global warming is like a world war. It is a world war.”


McKibben calls on the next president to display the same urgency and foresight as FDR and take immediate action, because, with the devastation from climate-strengthened extreme weather events happening right now: “World War III is well and truly underway. And we are losing.”

Agelbert NOTE: I agree. We ARE losing. 

And ANYTHING the "Democratic" Party platform commits to is to be categorized as an election campaign empty promise.

But the politicians all over the world will NOT be able to keep a lid on the ongoing climate change catastrophe. Eventually, though far too late for most of us, the empathy deficit disordered psychopaths running this biosphere into the Sixth Great Extinction will commit to seriously addressing climate change by phasing out fossil fuels and accelerating the transition to a 100% Renewable Energy economy.

WHY? ??? Aren't they immune to the pain and struggle of most of the human population, never mind the multiple species extinctions going on as we speak? 

Because, the biosphere math challenged poobahs will witness rain bombs and other increasingly frequent sorts of climate change caused damage to THEIR properties and THEIR profits.

 
Hammond, La. August 13, 2016 after record amount of rainfall - Don't think that the high end properties all over the WORLD are not going to take an increasingly severe beating too (as well as the stock of property insurance corporations that the rich of this world own).

Until hard experience forces these stupid greed balls to extract themselves from their blind devotion to profit over planet, they will continue to make up fairy tales, doubletalk, bold faced mendacity and blatantly false happy talk in defense of the corrupt and unsustainable fossil fuel status quo (SEE latest Fossil Fuel Industry/Koch chicanery below).

Experience is not the best teacher for people who actually believe that they can perpetually distort reality by "externalizing" the consequences of their hubris onto we-the-people and the rest of the life forms in the biosphere; it's the ONLY teacher.

Selfish people are nauseatingly predictable.

Kochs’ New Front “Fueling U.S. Forward” Points Energy Policy Backwards   
 
 
Though they still refuse to support/to spend on Trump, the Kochs apparently feel they have to do something with their $750 million budget to influence voters. Beyond focusing on down-ballot races, they’re also revving up a new (probably) anti-electric car and (definitely) pro-fossil fuel front group as part of their ongoing efforts documented by the new microsite, KochsVsClean. Teased last February, publicly announced on Saturday and exposed by DeSmog’s Sharon Kelly on Sunday, the “Fueling U.S. Forward” group seeks to get the public emotionally invested in fossil fuels as being “pro-human.”
 
To do so, it will deploy the kind of doublespeak propaganda that we’ve come to expect from these entrenched interests, if its name or debut are any indication. As described in the post you should just go read at DeSmog, the president and CEO of the new group told the crowd at the Red State 2016 gathering that not only are fossil fuels all the usual talking points of “reliable, abundant, efficient,” but also they are “sustainable.”
 
Which, of course, is as backwards as can be. Not only are fossil fuels finite resources that will at some point be depleted if we continue business-as-usual, but they’re also mostly responsible for that little old thing called climate change. So even if they were a renewable resource, they still wouldn’t be sustainable indefinitely, in that if we continue burning them, it would render the planet incapable of sustaining human life. 
 
At this point, you may be wondering why the Kochs are bothering to spend big bucks on such an obviously absurd ad campaign. Is this just fodder for talk show mockery, like John Oliver’s brilliant (though NSFW) skewering of the American Petroleum Institute’s new ad campaign?
 
Unfortunately, it’s much more than that. Though those who oppose renewables may not be nationally successful, they are finding wins at the state level. Case in point: the coal-heavy Wyoming, where state legislators are considering a massive tax increase on wind power    as a major new project is being developed.
 
Seems without the glare of national media, deniers are able to advance their anti-clean energy agenda. This means instead of going forward on the path to a clean energy future, the Kochs’ funding is not fueling the U.S. forward, but backwards to the time when our only energy options were their “pro-human”* fossil fuels .

*”Human” defined as “one who makes money off of fossil fuels,”      since apparently those are the only people that count in the Koch universe.

 The Fossil Fuelers   DID THE Climate Trashing, human health depleteing CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks, they are trying to AVOID DOING THE TIME   or   PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it!   Pass it on! 
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
