  Cuomo: Walk the Talk on Climate Action  


April 25, 2018

While the federal government 🦀 recklessly fans the flames of climate catastrophe for profit, it’s up to all of us to fill this void of leadership by demanding sweeping climate action from our towns, cities, and states.

On May 14th, people around the country are rising together to demand real climate action with the Spring Forward to #FossilFree week of action. We will rally at our local City Halls and introduce our demands for a Fossil Free world. Are you ready to ramp up the fight in your community? Find a Spring Forward action in your hometown, or sign up to host one!

The impacts of Hurricanes Maria and Irma are still felt sharply by many, and the destruction from last year remains fresh in our minds. With the 2018 hurricane season fast approaching, our best shot at building healthy, resilient, and safe communities will come by fighting locally for our shared vision of a Fossil Free world.

Will you join me on May 14th to Spring Forward to #FossilFree?

Together in the fight,

Lindsay

Nebraska Dust Storm Causes Deadly Pileup, Closes Interstate 80

By  Alex Blumer

Published: April 30, 2018

A large pileup is seen along Interstate 80 near Aurora, Nebraska, on Sunday, April 29, 2018.
(Nebraska State Patrol)

Blowing dust and high winds led to a deadly pileup Sunday evening that shut down Interstate 80 in southern Nebraska, according to local media reports.

The National Weather Service in Hastings reported that the westbound lanes were closed near mile marker 332 just before 6 p.m. local time. The Nebraska State Patrol then shut down I-80 in both directions between Aurora and York, according to KETV.com.

The NSP confirmed one person died and 15 others were injured in the crash, KHGI-TV reported. The victim's identity has not been released.

Authorities urged drivers to avoid the area if possible, Nebraska.TV reported.

"Wind gusts frequently in excess of 40 mph ahead of this week's severe storm system and drier-than-average conditions over the last several weeks have and will continue to lead to areas of blowing dust on the Plains," said weather.com meteorologist Jonathan Belles.

Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Quote
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders <Senator@sanders.senate.gov>

April 30, 2018

Dear Mr. Gelbert:

Thank you for contacting me to express your opposition to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. I share your views on protecting the area, and I was deeply disappointed, but not surprised, when my colleagues decided to hand this treasured public land over to the fossil fuel industry to pay for massive tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest people in this country.   

Established by Congress in 1980 through the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, the 19 million acre Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) is the largest National Wildlife Refuge in the country. This national treasure contains a remarkably diverse set of ecosystems that are home to hundreds of iconic species like caribou, polar bears, grizzly bears, musk ox, and wolves. ANWR is also home to the Cwich’in people, a Native American tribe that has relied on the region’s undeveloped lands and natural resources for thousands of years. 

In addition to its immense cultural and ecological value, this national treasure has long been of great interest to gas and oil companies who want to drill in its northern coastal plain region. For over 40 years, the fossil fuel industry has lobbied congress to open ANWR for drilling. On December 22nd, they finally succeeded when President Trump signed on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which opens up ANWR’s northern coastal plain for drilling and fossil fuel infrastructure development. To my mind, there are several reasons why opening up one of our nation’s most wild and iconic landscapes to oil and gas development is exactly the wrong thing to do. 

First, nearly forty years of conservation science and administrative policy have established that drilling would be devastating to ANWR’s delicate and unique ecosystems. In particular, development would severely disrupt the majestic Porcupine Caribou herd, which represents an essential subsistence and spiritual resource that the Gwich’in people have relied on for thousands of years. Protecting these caribou and the Gwich’in way of life is a matter of basic human rights.

Second, at a time when we are already seeing the disastrous effects of global climate chance, it does not make any sense drill for more of the dirty fossil fuels that are already destroying our planet. The United States already wastes tens of billions each year providing corporate welfare to the coal, oil, and gas companies that are destroying our planet. We should be working to keep fossil fuels in the ground, not destroying our precious natural resources so we can give more special favors to the fossil fuel industry.   

Finally, my colleagues opened up ANWR as a way to pay for tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest people in this country. In fact, the most optimistic projections say that drilling will offset less than one percent of those tax cuts, and even then, my colleagues’ tax legislation will still increase the federal deficit by $1.5 trillion over the next decade. This comes at a time when the wealthiest Americans are already doing phenomenally well and ordinary, working class families are struggling just to get by. We should not be drilling at all, and we most certainly should not be drilling in order to finance tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. 

Now is not the time to despair. We have got to continue the fight to cut greenhouse gas emissions and protect clean air and water for future generations. As a member of the Senate energy and environment committees, I will keep your thoughts in mind as I continue to speak out against the detrimental actions of this administration and fight to radically transform our energy system with or without the support of Donald Trump and the fossil fuel industry. 

Thank you again for contacting me, and please feel free to stay in touch about this or any other subject of interest to you.  For up-to-date information on what I am working on, please sign-up for my e-newsletter, the Bernie Buzz, at http://sanders.senate.gov/buzz/.

Sincerely,

BERNARD SANDERS
United States Senator

Methane Venting Into Air Over Arctic Sea Ice.
9,082 views


Paul Beckwith

Published on Apr 27, 2018

Using European Satellite Data (Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service; CAMS) I show that methane is now venting into the air at the surface in the Arctic in the Kara Sea off the Russian Island of Novaya Zemlya. It must be seeping from the ocean floor, bubbling up through the shallow water column and working its way through the sea ice cover. You may recall that many large “methane craters” have been discovered lately on the Yamal Peninsula which juts out into the Kara Sea in this region.

This is not good for humanity.

Recent Storms Moved Giant Rocks Weighing Up to 620 tons:   Part 1 of 4

5,525 views


Paul Beckwith

Published on Mar 7, 2018

It turns out that “Storms of our Grandchildren” are already here today. In fact these storms are already reconfiguring our coastlines. If you live in a coastal city you are likely aware that rising sea levels, large and intense storms with their associated storm surges, combined with king tides and perhaps even land subsidence are encroaching and damaging houses, streets, bridges, high-rises; in fact all infrastructure is threatened. The energy in recent storms is enormous, and has moved enormous boulders weighing as much as 620 tons in Ireland.

Pakistan May Have Just Set a World Heat Record 🚩 🌡️

May 1, 2018

Brian Kahn

SNIPPET:

There was also a major heat wave last April in Pakistan that saw temperatures get nearly as extreme. Nearby Larkana topped out at 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit), which is the old accepted April record for Pakistan. (There’s another single report of 51 degrees Celsius, but it’s hard to say how accurate that is.)

Either way, it’s hot AF right in Nawabshah right now. According to Dawn, a regional news outlet, the heat caused people to pass out and forced “business activities came to a halt” in the district of 1.1 million. The same city hit 45.5 degrees Celsius (113.9 degrees Fahrenheit) in March, setting an all-time March record for Pakistan according to Capital Weather Gang.

But Nawabshah is hardly the only sweltering locale. A vast area from Eastern Europe to South Asia is under a massive heat dome that’s been building since last week. Heat domes occur when an area of high pressure camps over a region, causing dry air to sink. As it sinks, that air gets compressed and releases heat, leading to sizzling temperatures. Burt also noted that Poltavka, Russia, located on the Kazakhstan border, recorded the warmest April temperature for the Asian portion of Russia when it topped out at 34.8 degrees Celsius (94.6 degrees Celsius) on April 29.

The heat dome may also have helped trigger wild weather in the Middle East last week, locking in low pressure that unleashed towering haboobs, huge hail, and deadly flash flooding in the region.

We Cannot Stand By While the National Park Service Attacks Climate Science

Altering a climate report sets an unacceptable precedent for national park decision-making.

SNIPPET:

Last week, The Center for Investigative Reporting revealed that it had obtained copies of an 87-page draft report by a University of Colorado scientist on how sea level rise is affecting 118 coastal national parks. In this unreleased report, which has been delayed for publication by at least 10 months, a National Park Service official had edited the copy to remove all references to the human role in altering the climate.

In contrast, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke 🐉 had assured members of Congress at a hearing last month that he did not know of any document that had been willfully changed to alter facts. “I read them all,” he was reported as saying. “I don’t change a comma on them.”

But last week’s report contradicts that claim and casts additional doubt on his department’s integrity.

If true, this is the first known example of a Park Service report that has been edited to alter scientific information. This terrible precedent — the alteration of current, known scientific evidence — may have serious implications for how our national parks are managed.

Our coastal parks are literally on the front lines of climate change. Last year’s devastating hurricane season showed how much damage severe weather and flooding can do to treasured places like Virgin Islands, Everglades and Biscayne National Parks and the communities that surround and depend on them. Park managers need the best science available to understand how to protect these parks from sea-level rise. They cannot build ecological resilience and prevent future damage if the data they are using is manipulated and inaccurate or lacks evidence that may support future solutions.

Willfully Ignoring Climate Change Is a Disaster for National Parks

Trump 🦀 administration 😈 repeals climate-smart management policies for national parks.

SNIPPET:

It’s no secret that the Trump administration is pursuing an aggressively pro-fossil fuels energy policy. Dating to the election campaign, he talked about rolling back federal efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which Trump blamed for killing coal and oil jobs, and he has loudly followed through on that promise ever since.

What’s not as well-known is that the administration is not only refusing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it is willfully preventing federal land managers from taking steps to protect our national parks and other public lands from the disastrous effects of climate change.

Agelbert NOTE: Please use the legend of CO2 concentration in the graphic below to properly visualize the CO2 levels throughout the globe during one year (2016) in the video after the graphic.



one year time lapse of CO2 surface concentration: 20169,184 views


nullschool

Published on Jan 4, 2017

This animation shows a full one year time lapse animation of CO2 surface concentration from Jan 1, 2016 until Jan 1, 2017. The data comes from NASA's GEOS-5 numerical weather model (https://gmao.gsfc.nasa.gov/GEOS/). Light colors represent higher amounts of CO2, whereas dark colors represent lower amounts.

A few things to notice:

1. Look for the daily "heartbeat" caused by plants changing their CO2 absorption rates between daytime and nighttime.

2. As summer turns into fall, notice how concentrations increase in the northern hemisphere as trees lose their leaves.

3. Look for urban areas where the high population density results in easily visible plumes of CO2 emissions.

Agelbert NOTE: The red spot is where they measure CO2 on a mountain in Hawaii. As you will see, the CO2 level is FAR higher in the northern hemisphere than in the southern hemisphere. Consequently, it's going to get hotter a lot faster in the northern hemisphere 😓 than in the southern hemisphere. Please keep that 💣 in mind.

RADIO ECOSHOCK host Alex Smith:

Quote
In the show I play a short clip from a film “Egypt: The End of the Age of Pyramids”, part of a “Twilight of Civilizations” series produced by Arte France. I found it uploaded to You tube. I went for the history, but heard it as a documentary of our future.

WHEN ANCIENT EGYPT CRASHED IN CLIMATE CHANGE

Quote
It is eerie when a description of a past age seems to explain what we will be facing as the climate shifts this century. Around 4,270 years ago, the grasslands of Egypt disappeared, leaving a vast desert. Archaeologists claim to have discovered a regional climate shift during a time of written records and great buildings like their pyramids.


Quote
Thousands of our great buildings will not go underneath blowing sand, but under the rising seas and great storm surges. As in ancient times, animals and plants will also disappear, but this time it will happen not just in one region, but around the world.

Please tell others than climate change is a danger beyond imagination, but tracked by science. Become a climate activist, or a part-time activist, or at least a person brave enough to speak out.

My thanks to people who donated to the “More Radio Ecoshock” campaign. As we contact more radio stations, it looks like we have a couple coming onboard already. The whole idea is to get the message of saving our ecosystem out much further. It’s one way we can all help. Please donate if you can, or become a monthly donor.

I’m Alex Smith. Join me again as we wrestle with the dragon

New Report Shows How Badly Climate Change Is Hurting California

SNIPPET:

Quote
“There is no time for political posturing and partisan debate.”

Sea levels are rising along California’s coast. Forest fires are scorching Northern California, while dust storms are blanketing Southern California.

And days and nights are getting hotter across the entire state.

In recent years, California’s reputation as a leader in the fight against climate change has never been clearer. But at the same time, its status as a victim of climate change has become undeniable.
