The GOP and Big Oil can't escape blame for climate change

SNIPPET 1:

The New York Times magazine blames ‘human nature ,’ but fingers have already been pointed at the true culprits 🐉🦕 🦖

SNIPPET2:

In the key 1983 press briefing, Nierenberg basically lied about the climate report’s findings, claiming it found no urgent need for action. Nierenberg’s false summary made headlines around the world and stymied climate policy efforts for years to come. Only after 1985 when the discovery of ozone depletion captured worldwide attention was climate change able to ride its coattails back into serious policy discussions.

We can limit global warming to 1.5°C — but we need to change how we travel, heat homes, and use devices

Overall, the 1.5°C scenario could be achieved if we reduce energy demand by 40%. By combining this reduction with the electrification of cars and a continuous expansion of renewable energy, the objective could be reached with existing technology.

Climate Change Is Forcing Earth Toward a 'Hothouse' Point of No Return 🚩 😓 ☠️

By Joe McCarthy

AUG. 7, 2018

SNIPPET:

Now a group of scientists is warning that the Paris climate agreement goal of keeping global temperatures from rising 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels is not aggressive enough to protect the planet from catastrophic consequences. The reason, according to the Guardian, is because even more powerful feedback loops will be triggered upon reaching this temperature threshold.

In a paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the authors map out a range of anticipated climate feedback loops.

For example, as the oceans continue to warm, coral reefs and all the environmental benefits they provide will continue to disappear, causing marine ecosystems to further deteriorate. As precipitation patterns shift, some regions are getting more rainfall, inundating forested areas to the point where they can no longer absorb as much greenhouse gas emissions. And as ice sheets melt, more sun is being absorbed by surrounding oceans, leading to warming waters and more ice melt.

More Than 70,000 People Hospitalized 👀 😨 Amid Record-Breaking Heat in Japan 😓

An ongoing heatwave has sent a record 71,266 people to hospitals across Japan between April 30 and Aug. 5 with 138 people dying from heat-related illnesses, The Japan Times reported, citing the nation's Fire and Disaster Management Agency.

The busy capital of Tokyo saw the highest number of people taken to hospitals, at 5,994. Osaka followed with 5,272. About 40 percent of the total tally consists of elderly people.

The number of people hospitalized in just the past three months far exceeds the previous record of 58,729 recorded from June 1 to Sept. 30 in 2013.

Last month, the city of Kumagaya in the Saitama prefecture reached 41.1 degrees Celsius (106 degrees Fahrenheit), an all-time high for the country, prompting the national meteorological agency to declare the extreme heat a "natural disaster."

What's more, the heat is expected to continue. The Disaster Management Agency has urged the public to take caution and to drink enough water and use air conditioners.

Meanwhile, the scorching conditions has government officials considering whether to introduce daylight saving time for the Olympic Games in 2020, which will be hosted in Tokyo.

Yoshiro Mori, the head of the organizing committee for the summer games, said that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has ordered officials from his Liberal Democratic party to gather public opinion on whether clocks should jump ahead, Reuters reported.

The plan being considered would move clocks two hours forward. For instance, marathon runners would set off at 5 a.m. instead of 7 a.m. to avoid sweltering conditions during their races.

Advocating for the plan, Tokyo 2020 spokesman Masa Takaya said in a statement to Reuters that the move would "also help protect the environment and realize a low-carbon society in Japan."

However, people took to social media to complain that the change would be difficult to adjust to and they could risk losing sleep.

"It's way too easy to imagine that we'll start work two hours earlier and finish the same in the dark, meaning long days," a commenter said, according to Reuters.

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout:

The Coming Thunder of the Climate Change Voter

There is a terrible desperation to the increasingly pathetic rationalizations from the climate denial camp, and a political price will be paid for these filthy paroxysms of deceit, perhaps much sooner than some might think.

A large majority of Americans believe climate change is real, and nearly half believe they have already experienced its effects.

Trump 🦀 can blame the trees, but climate voters   may find a more accurate target for their ire come November.

In all those years, I have never, ever experienced as many pounding, vicious tropical downpours as I have this summer, and it’s barely August. I watched shingles getting blasted off my neighbor’s roof the other day by a microburst that came roaring out of the maelstrom during maybe the 25th thunderdump flood-bomb we’ve seen in the last few weeks alone. This past March, we got c r a c k e d with three howling Nor’easters in the span of 11 days, with a fourth that followed soon after. Again, unprecedented in my experience.

We’re not on fire here — these wildly uncharacteristic monsoon rains put that possibility snugly to bed — but there’s nothing at all normal about this. This isn’t the Amazon rainforest. It’s not even North Alabama. It’s not the North Pole, either. This is New England, and I have never seen the like. There is too much water in the atmosphere, and it is coming down hard. Tack on the extraordinary heat and saturating humidity, and these are strange days indeed.

I am not alone in my perceptions. Far from it, in fact.

There Are More Trees 🌲🌳🌴 Today Than There Were 30 Years Ago: Study

But that’s not necessarily a good thing.

By Joe McCarthy  and  Erica Sanchez

AUG. 13, 2018

Quote
Why Global Citizens Should Care
Trees are critical in protecting the ecological health of the planet and counteracting climate change. The United Nations’ Global Goals calls on countries to promote forest growth. You can join us in taking action on this issue here.

Forty football fields worth of tropical forest are lost every minute, but it appears that the world actually gained trees between 1982 and 2016, according to a comprehensive study published in the science journal Nature.

After studying more than 30 years worth of satellite images, a team of researchers concluded that global tree cover had increased by 7%, or 864,868 square miles, approximately the combined size of Alaska and Texas.

The finding might seem to contradict other reports that show staggering levels of deforestation over the past century. For instance, the World Resources Institute recently came up with that startling football field statistic in an annual report on tropical forests.

But the two reports aren’t actually in conflict with each other. As the world loses unsustainable levels of tropical forests, tree growth is rising in previously inhospitable places like deserts, tundra areas, and in cities.

Some of that tree growth is simply due to humans planting seeds in soil. Pakistan, for instance, has been able to plant billions of trees in recent years. Another part of the growth comes from trees reclaiming land abandoned by humans.

The biggest driver of tree growth, according to the report, is climate change. As the world warms, landscapes are changing and trees are able to take root in new areas.

Trees are critical in the global fight against climate change, but they’re also highly vulnerable to the phenomenon.

As a result, the new study isn’t entirely good news, especially because it shows how tree growth on its own can’t counteract the accumulation of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.

It also shows how rapidly the planet is changing.

In recent months, record-breaking forest fires have broke out in California and throughout parts of Europe. Glaciers throughout the Arctic, Greenland, and elsewhere, are disintegrating, destabilizing water networks around the world. And warming oceans are rearranging fish populations in ways that are undermining transnational treaties.

 To reverse this ecological decline, there’s only one real solution — reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Through the Paris climate agreement, countries are asked to keep global temperatures from rising from more than 2 degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial levels, a goal that seems increasingly out of reach.

If we go beyond that number, then trees will continue appearing in places that once seemed impossible and vanishing from places that once seemed ideal.

Aerial Photos Reveal the True Horror of the Carr Fire 😱

Brian Kahn

August 10, 2018 Friday 12:00pm Filed to: CARR FIRE 🔥

SNIPPET:

The pictures from the ground of the Carr Fire showed devastation on a human scale. But new aerial imagery released by the city of Redding puts the massive wildfire in a landscape context, revealing the both the power and capriciousness of one the most destructive fires in California history.

Firefighters and sheriffs used drones to better assess the damage wrought by the fire and to piece together the history of what happened two weeks ago when it stormed Redding, a city of 90,000, overnight. The blaze has killed at least eight, burned 178,752 acres, and razed 1,599 structures. As of Friday, it was 49 percent contained.

The fire swept in from the west of the city where it burned largely in tracts of forest around Whiskeytown Lake. The images from there show charred trees and denuded hillsides.

Glacier National Park Is on Fire 🔥

Brian Kahn

August 13, 2018 Monday 11:35amFiled to: WILDFIRE SEASON IS YEAR ROUND NOW 🚩 😓

A night view of the Howe Ridge Fire on the shores of Lake McDonald. Photo: Glacier National Park

Weeks after Yosemite Valley closed due to wildfires for the first time in decades, parts of Glacier National Park in Montana have been evacuated thanks to an explosive fire.

The Howe Ridge Fire “grew significantly” on Sunday according to a Facebook post by the park, the same day Glacier hit 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the first time in recorded history. The blaze has led the park to close portions of the iconic Going-to-the-Sun Road from Apgar to Logan Pass, and to evacuate Lake McDonald Lodge and Avalanche Creek Campground around 9 p.m. local time on Sunday.

The park also evacuated private home inholdings and park ranger housing. According to the Missoulian, the park has requested a structure protection team to hold back the flames. There are at least two other fires currently burning in the park, all likely sparked by lightning.

So far, firefighting efforts have consisted of planes dumping water, smokejumpers parachuting in, and attempts to access the fires on foot, but the blazes continue largely uncontained for now. Earther has reached out to Glacier National Park for more information on the size of the fires, firefighting efforts, and how long evacuation orders will remain in place or if they’ll expand.

Smoke continues to obscure views and fill the sky with noxious fumes. As ash and other particulate matter falls from the sky, it could also add insult to injury for Glacier’s glaciers. Rising temperatures have caused the glaciers to recede and disappear over the course of the park’s history. The dark particles from wildfire smoke will absorb more sunlight, acting as a dark blanket that could cause the glaciers to melt even faster.

Not only has it been hot, it’s been dry. According to the National Weather Service, Missoula—located about 130 miles south of Glacier—has gone 40 days without a lick of measurable rain. If the streak continues for seven , it will set a record for the longest dry stretch. Records go back to 1893 and the current record was set in [checks notes] 2017. Well then.

“There are some places where if you dropped a match on the ground, it would catch on fire,” Nicky Ouellet, the Flathead Valley reporter for Montana Public Radio, told Earther. “It’s an accumulation of dried grass, dried twigs that would act as kindling.”

Western Montana is under a number of fire restrictions due to the hot, dry weather. Glacier is under a Stage I ban, which essentially means folks need to be more vigilant about campfires, smoking, fireworks, and off-roading. To the south of Glacier, a Stage II burn ban is in place, which means no fires, fireworks, smoking outdoors, or off-roading.

I feel like a broken record saying this, but it bears repeating that we are witnessing a new era of wildfires in the West. Rising temperatures have lengthened wildfire season by drying out fuels and melting out snowpack earlier. The increasing heat also ups the odds of explosive fires like what we’ve seen from California to Montana to British Columbia. And it’s going to get worse.

Update 3:00 p.m. ET: Glacier National Park is reporting that an unknown number of structures have burned on the north shore of Lake McDonald. In addition, a Stage II burn ban will go into place for the park starting at midnight tonight, which means no s’mores for a midnight snack.

Update 5:40 p.m. ET: The first estimates are in for the Howe Ridge Fire. It grew from 20 acres on Sunday to an estimated 1,500 acres by Monday.
