Agelbert NOTE: Max Boot, a former Climate Change Denier, and a rather evil neocon warmonger too, has learned to add and subtract in biosphere math. 👍 I applaud his critical thinking skills and his honesty in admitting that he was wrong. I also applaud the fact that he makes it crystal clear WHY so many "conservatives" (i.e. bought and paid for reactionaries who have ZERO interest in conserving anything but their fat wallets) continue to insist (i.e. pretend) that Catastrophic Climate Change "ain't happening", WHILE ferociously defending welfare queen subsidies for the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn and the use of fossil fuels for energy. All you need to do is follow the ethically BANKRUPT money. >:( Yeah, they will all eventually come around to ADMITTING REALITY, even though I am certain that, right now, all those "conservatives" (they are evil, but they are not stupid) know full well how Greenhouse Gasses (i.e. Carbon Dioxide, Methane and excess water vapor) are devastating our biosphere. They just want to keep the bribes contributions gravy train from the polluters coming in as long as possible. It ain't poisonal; it's jes' bidness.

The question is, will enough of them come around soon enough to stop this insane profit over planet before it is too late?   ???

I don't know. What I do know is that we are running out of time.

 

I was wrong on climate change. Why can’t other conservatives admit it, too?

By Max Boot Columnist

November 26, 2018

I admit it. I used to be a climate-change skeptic. I was one of those conservatives who thought that the science was inconclusive, that fears of global warming were as overblown as fears of a new ice age in the 1970s, that climate change was natural and cyclical, and that there was no need to incur any economic costs to deal with this speculative threat. I no longer think any of that, because the scientific consensus is so clear and convincing.

The Fourth National Climate Assessment, released Friday by the U.S. government, puts it starkly: “Observations collected around the world provide significant, clear, and compelling evidence that global average temperature is much higher, and is rising more rapidly, than anything modern civilization has experienced, with widespread and growing impacts.” The report notes that “annual average temperatures have increased by 1.8°F across the contiguous United States since the beginning of the 20th century” and that “annual median sea level along the U.S. coast . . . has increased by about 9 inches since the early 20th century as oceans have warmed and land ice has melted.”

The report attributes these changes to man-made greenhouse gases and warns: “High temperature extremes, heavy precipitation events, high tide flooding events along the U.S. coastline, ocean acidification and warming, and forest fires in the western United States and Alaska are all projected to continue to increase, while land and sea ice cover, snowpack, and surface soil moisture are expected to continue to decline in the coming decades.”

The U.S. government warnings echo the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In October, it released a report that represented the work of 91 scientists from 60 countries. It describes, in the words of the New York Times, “a world of worsening food shortages and wildfires, and a mass die-off of coral reefs as soon as 2040.”

The wildfires are already here. The Camp Fire blaze this month is the most destructive in California history, charring 153,000 acres, destroying nearly 19,000 structures, and killing at least 85 people. The second-most destructive fire in California history was the one last year in Napa and Sonoma counties. The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies notes that climate change has contributed to these conflagrations by shortening the rainy season, drying out vegetation and whipping up Santa Ana winds. Massive hurricanes are increasing along with wildfires — and they too are influenced by climate change.

It’s time to sound the planetary alarm.   This is likely to be the fourth-hottest year on record. The record-holder is 2016, followed by 2015 and 2017. A climate change website notes that “the five warmest years in the global record have all come in the 2010s” and “the 10 warmest years on record have all come since 1998.”

Quote
Opinion | Climate change is political — when you deny it's happening (video at Washington Post Web site)
More powerful hurricanes are one of many signs of climate change, and those who deny it are complicit in the destruction, meteorologist Eric Holthaus says. (Gillian Brockell, Kate Woodsome, Adriana Usero/The Washington Post)

Imagine if these figures reflected a rise in terrorism — or illegal immigration. Republicans would be freaking out. Yet they are oddly blasé about this climate code red. President Trump, whose minions buried the climate-change report on the day after Thanksgiving, told Axios: “Is there climate change? Yeah. Will it go back like this, I mean will it change back? Probably.” And, amid a recent cold snap, he tweeted: “Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS - Whatever happened to Global Warming?”

By this point, no one should be surprised that the president can’t tell the difference between short-term weather fluctuations and long-term climate trends. At least he didn’t repeat his crazy suggestion that climate change is a Chinese hoax. Yet his denialism is echoed by other Republicans who should know better. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) told CNN on Sunday: “Our climate always changes and we see those ebb and flows through time. . . . We need to always consider the impact to American industry and jobs.”

Quote
Agelbert FACT CHECK:: Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) is a LIAR (and an Orwellian too!) when he claims to be "considering the impact to American industry and jobs". That's a Denier mendacious talking point his Hydrocarbon Hellspawn OWNERS have been pushing for decades. Look at IOWA in the following chart. Clean energy jobs are FAR more important than the Dirty energy fossil fuel jobs for the economy of Iowa. But, this Republican Senator Ernst ONLY cares about fossil fuel jobs, NOT the economy of Iowa.

Don't tell me he hasn't seen that chart! He could care less about jobs for Iowans! All he cares about is pleasing the fossil fuel fascists that OWN him! Sen. Joni Ernst 😈 (R-Iowa) is actually HURTING the jobs picture in Iowa by refusing to increase clean energy jobs.



We do need to consider the impact on U.S. jobs — but that’s an argument for action rather than, as Ernst suggests, inaction. The National Climate Assessment warns that global warming could cause a 10 percent decline in gross domestic product and that the “potential for losses in some sectors could reach hundreds of billions of dollars per year by the end of this century.” Iowa and other farm states will be particularly hard hit as crops wilt and livestock die.

Compared with the crushing costs of climate change, the action needed to curb greenhouse-gas emissions is modest and manageable — if we act now. Jerry Taylor, president of the libertarian Niskanen Center, estimates that a carbon tax would increase average electricity rates from 17 cents to 18 cents per kilowatt-hour. The average household, he writes, would see spending on energy rise “only about $35 per month.” That’s not nothing — but it’s better than allowing climate change to continue unabated.

I’ve owned up to the danger. Why haven’t other conservatives? They are captives, first and foremost, of the fossil fuel industry 🐉🦕🦖 , which outspent green groups 10 to 1 in lobbying on climate change from 2000 to 2016. But they are also captives of their own rigid ideology. It is a tragedy for the entire planet that the United States’ governing party is impervious to science and reason.

A plan to topple fossil fuels with people power

May Boeve - 350.org

I won’t sugar coat this, the last couple of weeks have been tough for our movement.

Each day seems to bring a new attack, from slashing regulations on coal plants to stalling climate agreements. But I'm writing you now because even as the fossil fuel industry is digging in its heels, I remain positive that we can do this. Our resistance is growing in strength, and we urgently need your support to keep that momentum going.

In the coming months, we're working to scale up our movement. I've recorded this short video to share how we're planning to do it but we need your help. Will you watch and make a gift right now to help us take on the fossil fuel industry in 2019?


With just ten years to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, this is our moment to bolster the youth movements that are rising up around the globe, to support the Indigenous movements that are taking down pipelines, and to mobilize even more people like you to delay and defeat fossil fuel projects.

Please, make a gift of $10 right now to start 2019 strong.

There is so much work to be done, but I couldn’t be prouder to be in this fight together with you.

Thank you, and happy holidays,

May

By Jonathan Watts

SNIPPET:

Prof Richard Betts, who leads the climate research arm of Britain’s meteorological monitoring organisation, made the comments amid growing evidence that rising temperatures have passed the comfort zone and are now bringing increased threats to humanity.

“Global heating is technically more correct because we are talking about changes in the energy balance of the planet,” the scientist said at the UN climate summit in Katowice, Poland. “We should be talking about risk rather than uncertainty.”

New Study Could Make It Harder for Trump’s 🦀 EPA 🦕 to Ignore the Dangers of Greenhouse Gases

By Yessenia Funes

December 13, 2018 2:12pm Filed to: TAKE THAT TRUMP

SNIPPET:

“It’s not always obvious that those health impacts are related to climate change,” Duffy said. “It’s not always obvious that an extreme weather event is made more likely by climate change. It’s not always obvious that an economic cost is exacerbated by climate change, but if you look at the scientific data, it’s clear that all those things are happening
.”

The team cited more than 250 studies, but the paper could’ve easily included more, Duffy told Earther. While the endangerment finding groups information into seven sections (air quality; food production and agriculture; forestry; water resources; sea level rise and coastal areas; ecosystems and wildlife; and energy, infrastructure, and settlements), this study went further and also looked at ocean acidification, national security, violence and social instability, and economic wellbeing.

Until We Confront Capitalism, We Will Not Solve the Climate Crisis

BY Anton Woronczuk, Truthout

PUBLISHED December 16, 2018

SNIPPET:

International climate negotiations have failed to curb runaway greenhouse gas emissions. Consumer-focused solutions to climate change won't be enough to address the systemic nature of the crisis. So what do we do to halt global warming? Simon Pirani, author of Burning Up: A Global History of Fossil Fuel Consumption, discusses the prospects for transitioning to a post-fossil fuel world.

Birke's new trick

December 19, 2018

Bill McKibben - 350.org

Delayed gratification is not easy for me — I want to win the climate fight right now, instead of watching sadly as forests burn and houses flood.

But watching my wife, Sue, teach our dog Birke this new trick (you have to watch the video) reminded me that patience is a virtue. Not too much — the climate crisis is a timed test — but enough not to walk away in frustration at political inaction or the slowness of social change.

 

Because despite the year’s manifold frustrations, there are some good signs. In fact, it feels to me like we’re finally having a moment on climate change: the terrible California fires, coinciding with massive reports from the UN and the federal government on our climate peril, seem to have reached more people.

It’s true that Donald Trump is a dangerous climate denier — but that actually seems to be convincing most Americans that the climate crisis is very real and very risky.

So now’s the time to press forward hard and fast. We need your active participation in the climate movement — that’s by far the most important thing, as the young people flooding Capitol Hill for a Green New Deal are showing daily.

One way you can participate is by helping to fund this important work. We need some resources as we scale up our collective efforts to address the magnitude of the problem.

350.org remains (gulp) the biggest group on planet Earth whose only mission is fighting climate change . We’re not actually all that big (there are about 160 staffers), and we pinch pennies hard. So if you have some spare ones, send them our way.

And give your dog a biscuit for me!

With thanks,

Bill McKibben

350.org is building a global climate movement. You can connect with us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and text 350 to 83224 to get important mobile action alerts.  Become a sustaining donor to keep this movement strong and growing.

The Green New Deal is popping. New polling released on Friday by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication shows that 81 percent of respondents across the political spectrum support the progressive plan to combat climate change by rapidly weaning the U.S. off fossil fuels.

Noam Chomsky - Political Betrayal, Mobilizing Action
2,550 views


UPFSI

Published on Dec 18, 2018

http://ScientistsWarning.TV - We interviewed Noam Chomsky shortly before COP-24, the UN climate negotiations which took place in Katowice, Poland the first two weeks of December.  The COP itself ended as expected, with little progress and yet another kick of the can down the road. Noam's allusion to Nero in this video is quite apt.
