I've already lost count on how many we've had so far in the "new millennium", but the latest recently hit the Italian Isle of Sardinia.

17" of rain in 90 mins.

Of course the one that hit Somalia was completely ignored.

Meanwhile in Warsaw, the lobbyists have landed.

Who the hell invited those idiots?

Haven't they done enough damage here in the US?

Here's their latest.

The second rule of fracking is, if you do talk about fracking, it will cost you.

If you were trapped at the bottom of a deep hole, you’d probably want to stop digging and start climbing up. It’s what any sane person would do.

Tell world leaders: Time to stop digging the climate hole!

That’s exactly the situation we are all in with climate change – and not only are companies like Shell and Exxon still digging us deeper, they are being handed shovels paid for by your tax dollars. This has to stop.

I’m just back from the UN Climate Convention that this year was in Warsaw, Poland. As usual, governments there spent a lot of time talking about climate change, and as usual, that talk is backed up by very little action.

For the third year in a row, Oil Change International released a simple but important analysis at the climate calks. We compared the amount of money rich governments are spending to support the oil, gas and coal industries, with the amount they are spending to help the poor around the world fight climate change.

Guess what? For every one taxpayer dollar rich countries are spending to solve this crisis, they are spending five to cause it. Obviously, that’s not the way to climb out of the hole.

The best climate science in the world agrees that we can’t burn two thirds of the world’s existing oil, gas and coal reserves. And yet the fossil fuel industry – particularly Big Oil in the United States and Canada, keeps digging us deeper.

We’ve produced a brief slide show that makes it clear how deep the hole is, and how we can all help to stop digging, and start climbing out of the climate hole. Please check it out, take action, and share it widely.

Warsaw, which was a Climate Convention sponsored by the coal industry, has been a new low point in international efforts to stop climate change. But as the conference was drawing to its weak closing, the negotiators heard the voices of hundreds of activists chanting “Stop Climate Madness” loud and clear.

We will have to keep speaking truth to power. In fact, we will have to chant and shout truth to be louder than corporate power and to start climbing out of this deep hole. Together, we can do just that.

Yours in solidarity,

Steve Kretzmann Founder and Executive Director Oil Change International

For More Information:

-Check out the research we released this week in Warsaw

-Watch this interview with me on Democracy Now earlier this week.

Oil Change International campaigns to expose the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitate the coming transition towards clean energy. We are dedicated to identifying and overcoming barriers to that transition.

''The Climate Denial Beast - Time To Wake Up !!!'' :

''In this speech, Senator Whitehouse (D-RI) reveals the "carefully built apparatus of lies" constructed to deceive the public about the reality of climate change.''

''Climate-change Skepticism's Funding Sources Are Obscure !!'', by Sandy Bauers :

"Powerful funders are supporting the campaign to deny scientific findings about global warming," reported Robert J. Brulle, an environmental sociologist who studies strategies and funding patterns of what he terms the "climate change countermovement." Characterizing the "real issue" as "one of democracy," he added, "At the very least, American voters deserve to know who is behind these efforts."

''Sir David Attenborough : Enough With the Creationists and Climate Change Deniers !'' :

“Never before in history has the entire world been able to speak to one another. We are at the beginning of an extraordinary evolution as a species—one species is able to communicate instantly with every member,” Attenborough said. “I’m not so cynical as to think that ignorance will always win.”

It didn't quite take three weeks this time.

But don't worry folks, all this wacky weather is pure and natural.

Or maybe Obama did it with HAARP and chem trails, or something.

Expect more of them.

Hurricane "Xaver" in early December again caused fatal destruction, hitting northern Britain hardest. Wind gusts were measuredup to 142 mph. Overall, this month was measured by the U.K. Met Office as the stormiest December since records began, with three major storms occurring around the Christmas period – "Christian," "Dirk," and "Erich" – and the pattern continuing into early January. Additionally, U.K. storms do not normally have names.

Since records began!!!!

Makes one wonder - how many of these events before the public "REALLY" takes notice. We already know that it is gonna take MAJOR public pressure to get governments to do the right thing and pull all support from fossil fuel and invest heavily in implementing green energy fully.

Drought.

That is the thing about Global Warming - It is not all about heat - well - It IS - but not as most would think - heat adds energy - energy creates unpredictable weather. Drought Flood Tornado Hurricane Blizzards Ice storms. In season and out of season. The Ice storm down south has already deposited over two inches of ice across a few states. It continues.

2 inches of ice? Now that's unusual.

This one might make the list yet.

Here in S.E. Mi., it's just going to get a little cold. We might get a dusting that will melt the next day.

Here in the TC ? Well all of Mn really - major snowfall - about 8" around my area but three plus feet north of here. And from 40 degrees to 10 degrees in just minutes. So a nice ice skating rink on most roadways.

Hmmm - funny - not haha funny - science fiction has a habit of being able to forecast/present in a story things that are not possible are out of reach that eventually happen like Man On The Moon - at the same time they have had the ability to look at cause and effect and present possible futures resulting from what is going on today - an example of that might be Fahrenheit 451 or 1984.

Anyway - how many books or movies have been made showing massive destruction world wide by super storms or atmospheric collapse due to the practices of man?

And now we have super-storm after super-storm the likes that we have never seen before - like the Philippine Typhoon - the strongest storm on record ever to hit land.

Well this is a trend of science fiction foresight that I would hope we do our best not to let it continue to extinction events.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

17" in 90mins sounds like science fiction, but it's not.

A typhoon almost as big as the US, sounds like science fiction, but it's not.

Another 60 tornado storm in the Midwest.

What used to be storms of the century, have become the storm of the month, each and every moth of the year.

But don't worry. Exxon says we have nothing to do with it, and Pat Robertson says it's the end of the world anyway, because.................gays.

Or whatever his patsy of the week is..............

The Warsaw conference isn't over yet, and there's still a glimmer of hope.
