It's not a "hoax."

 


I'm thinking about the folks in Louisiana this morning. Today is exactly 16 years since Katrina devastated the state's largest city, and now, here we are again. Ida is on her way to leave her mark on that storm ravaged region.   

It's amazing to me that folks on the right still believe that climate change is all a hoax. (I guess I shouldn't be surprised. These same people believe that you can cure COVID by shooting yourself up with a worm drug used for horses.)  I'm here to tell you folks, it's not. I am no scientist. There are folks who read this blog on a regular basis who can play inside baseball with the best of them when it comes to the complexities and complications of the actual science behind this phenomenon.( I see you Pilot X) I'm not one of them. But I have eyes, and I have common sense, and I can tell you that it doesn't take a rocket scientist or an aircraft pilot to be able to tell you that the earth is changing in some scary ways. 

The West Coast of America is almost out of water. There are devastating fires in California and other states out West every year. Tornadoes and floods are getting more intense. And in certain parts of Europe they experienced the hottest months they have recorded in decades. There is more. The polar ice caps are melting, global sea levels are rising, humidity is increasing, the ocean is getting hotter, snow covers are melting earlier.... and on and on it goes. You get the picture. 

If you still don't believe that climate change is real, read what the Prime Minister of Greece had to say after devastating wildfires ripped through his country earlier this month.

 "Everything needed to change in order to minimise the effects of the climate crisis, he told parliament on Wednesday during a debate on the wildfires and criticism of the government's response to them.

Dealing with the crisis "is forcing us to change everything; the way we produce agricultural products, how we move around, how we generate energy and the way we build our homes," he said.

Part of a succession of blazes that struck southern Europe during a summer heatwave, the Greek fires scorched more than a quarter million acres of pine forest, with the island of Evia and areas of the Peloponnese, including near the archaeological site of the ancient Olympics, also hit.

Mitsotakis told lawmakers an earlier public apology for the disaster was also a call for action to become better at tackling such phenomena." 

It's going to take more  than the words of a European Leader to make us start taking this as serious as we should. You would think that one disaster after another would spur us into action. Clearly we are too selfish for that. The behavior of some when it comes to this COVID-19 pandemic is proof of that.

Let's keep the folks of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast regions in our thoughts. And let's start seriously thinking about where we go from here when it comes to climate change. We will be doing this all against the backdrop of Ida proving to us, once again, that climate change is real.

I know there is the temptation to look at the events in Afghanistan as some major failure of the Biden Administration, but it is not. This is who Biden has always been, what he ran on in the election, what everyone knew he would do, how he would sell out to the communist regime in China, do their bidding when he got into office. It was why they had to steal the election, because so many of us knew what a traitor, what a corrupt politician he was, that there was evidence of the bribes he took, verified by the courts in Ukraine. The fact of his mental incapacity only seemed to cement that he could not and should not be placed in control of the nation and its military forces. We now see why.

Hmmm.

So Joe Biden is a crafty, sinister traitor, an agent of the Chinese government, secretly blotting to undermine the country from within.

But also, Joe Biden is a mentally retarded vegetable who doesn’t know what year it is, whose handlers wheel him to and prop him up at events where he struggles to read the speeches they phonetically spelled out for him, while secretly, “Marxist” Kamala is actually running things behind the scenes (OMG A NEGRO IS IN CHARGE AGAIN EVERYTHING IS RUINED).

A homeless family of brainworms.

So Ida is about half the size and twice the strength of Katrina. It grew in intensity so quickly and so much because the water in the gulf is so hot right now. That makes it a really good example of what climate change does, what it is doing right now.
Now we will find out whether the upgrades to the levee system were enough to handle another big storm.
And speaking of Katrina and the way the goddamn Bush administration fucked up the response to it, the original gripe I had with Bush stealing the 2000 election was that we didn't have the time that an administration full of oilmen would waste before we started to deal with our role in climate change.
My dad worked for the US Forest Service for thirty years, and the goddamn wildfire situation just wasn't like this back in the seventies. I fought on a couple of forest fires myself, when I was nineteen, and it was a whole different situation back then.
The road down this mountain into Oakhurst is surrounded by huge stands of timber that's half to three quarters dead from beetle infestations that the drought made the trees too weak to fend off.
Any little spark and the whole thing will go up like a pile of kindling, like it did in 2017 with the Railroad fire and last year with the Creek fire.
A recent set of studies concluded that the kind of forest management that was the standard back in the days of the logging boom is largely ineffective against the kind of fire we are seeing now, and the only sane fiscal approach to saving property in the forest is hardening structures against the fires by replacing the vulnerable areas such as the eaves with more fire resistant materials and maintaining 100 feet of defensible space around them, neither of which are going to happen on a large scale in rural California.
Fires used to be the way a forest cleaned itself out and made room for new plant growth, but today's fires are so hot and intense that they consume even the larger trees that have evolved to survive fires in the understory.
And deliberate controlled burns have been a forest management tool since the native Americans used them centuries ago, but the low moisture levels in the understory have made it too dangerous to do in the last decade or so, especially with the encroachment of housing in the forest that could be burned if one of the controlled burns got away from them.
The folks who live out here are a conservative lot, according to the NYT, 71-29 in favor of the goddamn Republicans, but none of them deny climate change because they have to deal with the effects of it in real time every damn year now.
My neighbors three houses up are selling their house and thinking of buying something near the Canadian border because they are sick of being scared every time the wind blows.
PG&E says it has plans to underground ten thousand miles of power lines because as frightfully expensive as that may be, it's an order of magnitude cheaper than paying for the liability its existing above ground power lines are generating with the wildfires they cause when the wind blows.
I could rant about this all day, but in the interest of not exceeding the 4,096 character limit on this commenting software, I'll stop now.

Drought in the West is real scary. The governor hasn't asked the entire state to voluntarily conserve water yet, but I'm sure it's coming. Last time single home users and apartment and condo owners and renters voluntarily reduced our consumption by almost 20%. One thing that is out of whack. We have a three tier water pricing system. So once consumption exceeds a set amount, all water is charged at a very high rate. But there are no limits to the amount of water used for mansions and horse properties. A user can have as much water as they can pay for. So the wealthy continue to use exorbitant amounts of water for enormous lawns and ornate gardens, pools, fountains and other luxury purposes. What's more the system is tilted to the advantage of golf courses, hotels and commercial properties. Home owners and renters pay an inordinate share, particularly for sewer rates.

So toilet to tap is becoming reality down by the border. Twenty-five years ago I drank tap water almost exclusively. It was clean and healthy. Taste was not bad at all. I realize that was not universally true in every city. But not any longer. I can't drink it at all. I buy hundreds of little bottles every month.

Flying Junior said...

As far as the science, it is available to anyone with a curious mind. Ongoing research and archived studies going back to the 1990s can be found at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, University of Hawaii, any one of several campuses in the University of California, Stanford University and very likely many more. I used to go back and forth with conservatives before the current malaise of hatred going back to the Obama presidency. I asked them, who do you want to believe? With whom do you wish to align yourselves? I would mention these universities and provide links to studies. Of course, they did not trust the liberal professors and college kids in boats and at the beaches. They trusted their non-credentialed phony science hacks as provided by conservative sources.

Go figure. No reasoning with them.

It's exceeding sad to reflect that just twenty-five years ago we still could have avoided the worst changes in our climate systems and averted so much disaster, flooding and extreme heat if we had just mitigated our behavior and changed our energy production methods. Much of the current extreme climate change that has already occurred might have never happened. Now it's like trying to slam your brakes two seconds before a sixty mph crash. Slow motion train wreck. It's too late to stop it now. But we still have to try to change outcomes as much as we can.

While it's an idea that mentally grosses out many people, toilet-to-tap is actually pretty safe. It's very possible to totally sanitize waste water and render it safe. It's what they do on the International Space Station!

As for the taste of tap water, you should invest in filters for your tap. That's a lot cheaper and more environmentally friendly than buying loads of bottles of water.

California will probably eventually have to resort to ocean water desalination. That comes with its own costs, both environmentally and in dollars, but what are you going to do? If you need water, you need water. Anyway, Californians can probably offset the cost of desalination by passing it all on to the poor, desperate Arizonans, who will have no choice but to buy water from you in a few years.

dinthebeast said...

If we actually get a significant amount of water from desalination, the Arizonans will be happy enough if we just reduce our consumption of Colorado river water and leave them more of what is available. Meanwhile Northern California, where the South has been getting its water since forever, is drying up fast.

There will be more of these enraging stories of innocent people who died for lack of medical care because hospitals had already filled up with COVID-infected morons who refused to get vaccinated.

I sincerely wish that in order to refuse vaccines, people would mandatorily have to sign away their right to medical care in the event they catch COVID. If you are so absolutely certain that the medical establishment are all untrustworthy liars trying to trick you with vaccines, then have the courage of your convictions. Stay the fuck home and drink your horse dewormer. Leave the medical resources for the people who actually believe in science.

Was she or was she not warned to not enter the chamber? Did she or did she not illegally trespass? When an officer of the law draws a firearm and tells you to remain where you are wouldn't you do it or would you proceed? It takes a helluva lot of entitlement to disobey an armed officer's order. If Ashli is the hill you want to die on then so be it but you will never convince rational people she didn't cause her own death. Sorry bro.

"Babbitt crossed a line that had been clearly delineated. The police obviously felt it was a last stand. The potential danger was obvious. Babbitt’s shooting appears to have stopped the forward movement of the crowd. All this happened on a day when the vice president’s life had been threatened, and when police were being savagely beaten elsewhere in the building."

"Members of Congress can be seen on the other side of the door. Also on the other side of the door is a police lieutenant holding a gun, pointing it at the mob, an unmistakable warning to stay back.

But Babbit decides instead — although it’s a little hard to see on the video — to climb through the shattered glass window into the Speaker’s Lobby, past the police barricade, toward the pointed gun. If she is allowed through, it seems inevitable that the mob will follow."


An unmistakable warning to STAY THE HELL BACK but dumbo kept going. Anyone that stupid was going to die a stupid death so might as well have been on that day. She can join Herman Cain as another, along with the covidiots, who give their lives for an orange conman who wouldn't even piss on them if they were on fire. Such a show of ignorance.

1. Was Ashli trespassing?
2. Even if she didn't hear the orders shouldn't she have stopped when she saw the gun?
3. Wouldn't a rational cop assigned to protect congress be in survival mode after hearing about his officers being overrun and beaten?

Cons don't care about police officers or laws and order if they didn't they would know Ashli died by her own hand. Hypocrisy is thine name.

All of the rioters were warned, prior to entering the building, that they were not allowed inside, that they were a threat to the lives of legislators and their staff, and to democracy. They were all aware they were committing serious crimes, and didn’t care.

The police should have opened fire on all of them the moment they set foot in the Capitol.

Haha, even I wouldn't go this far, despite how pissed off as I am at antivaxxers. Science can't justify this, given kids' relatively low likelihood of developing severe COVID symptoms, and in any case, it's not practical to go around snatching people's kids.

I am, however, fully on board with schools forcing parents to get their kids vaccinated in order for them to attend classes, once the vaccines are fully FDA-approved for all ages.

Well, duh. Of course having Covid will devlope stronger immunity. The vaccine isn't perfect. And consider that this applies to those people that survived Covid. It doesn't include the dead ones. And speaking of dead ones,a million or more dead is what we can expect if people keep refusing the get vaccinated.

“ Well, duh. Of course having Covid will devlope stronger immunity. The vaccine isn't perfect.”

Actually, no. Most data to date shows the opposite.

Immunity from vaccination is consistently strong. Immunity from infection varies A LOT. People who happen to have had minor cases of COVID often end up with very weak immunity and can easily be reinfected. This is why the CDC is recommending vaccination for everyone, — including those who’ve already had and recovered from COVID.

The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent. Even when weapons of war are not actually destroyed, their manufacture is still a convenient way of expending labour power without producing anything that can be consumed.

According to the LA Times, more than 80% of eligible Californians have now received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
The vaccination rates vary widely by county. In Alameda county, where I lived for 35 years, more than 88% have received at least one dose, while in Humboldt county, where I was born, only 60% have.
Over the seven-day period ending Tuesday morning, California has reported an average of 12,861 new coronavirus cases per day, according to data compiled by The Times. That’s a roughly 11% decrease from a week ago.
The state also has seen a steady drop in its test positivity rate, which reflects how many tests result in confirmed coronavirus infections.
As of Tuesday, California’s seven-day positivity rate was 4.6%, down from 5.8% two weeks ago.
By contrast, the nation’s second most populous state, Texas, has a test positivity rate of 16%, according to Johns Hopkins University.

From NYT.... WASHINGTON — Of the flood of misinformation, conspiracy theories and falsehoods seeding the internet on the coronavirus, one common thread stands out: President Trump.

That is the conclusion of researchers at Cornell University who analyzed 38 million articles about the pandemic in English-language media around the world. Mentions of Mr. Trump made up nearly 38 percent of the overall “misinformation conversation,” making the president the largest driver of the “infodemic” — falsehoods involving the pandemic.

The study, to be released Thursday, is the first comprehensive examination of coronavirus misinformation in traditional and online media.

Isn’t that just Byrd’s job description? Guarding the Capitol means you “lie in wait” for someone to mount an attack on the building, and then you shoot them if they do.

All of the wingnut outrage over Babbitt is based on pretending that she, and the angry mob she was with, weren’t attacking — they were only protesters or, better yet, tourists. And actually, legislators and their staff were in absolutely no danger.

Sorry, no. I regret to inform you that that is bullshit.

And again, dig her up and shoot her again if it will get y'all to think twice about police violence. Or even once. She's dead. It won't make her any deader. That's how death works. One and done. Forever.

“More good news coming out of Georgia's mishandling of Arbery murder.”

This seems like a stunt by the state’s attorney general to boost his political profile. I think it is very unlikely that the local prosecutor will get convicted, considering she did hand off the case to somebody else to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest. That she’d previously spoken about the case to the person she’d handed it off to, probably won’t add up to criminality for a jury.

Prosecutors pretty much never get convicted unless they do something insanely, egregiously wrong, like suborn perjury or deliberately hide exculpatory evidence. Sometimes not even then.

Nah. The people who are demanding an end to abortion are a different conservative faction from the racists. They’re obsessed with keeping women from “acting too slutty.” They’re not focused on race; otherwise, they wouldn’t be trying to overturn Roe, which will mostly have the effect of increasing the non-white population relative to whites, as white women collectively have more money and are more likely to be able to travel to get a legal abortion even without Roe.

The racists would indeed like to increase the white birth rate, but they won’t be able to do that by denying white women contraception. They need white women’s political support too much to try such a ploy.

What you have to watch out for would be Victor Orban-style financial incentives provided by the government as a reward for having children. They will craft the rules so that, strangely, people of color never seem to qualify for these incentives. And as for contraception, look for a return of eugenics policies that try to forcibly sterilize “undesirables.” Again, strangely, all the undesirables will turn out to be people of color.

Kind of doubt it. Trump’s strongest voter demographic is white people who didn’t go to college. More than half of them live in economically bombed-out areas of Walmart America that don’t make anything worthwhile anymore and are only kept financially afloat through transfers of federal dollars from the blue states.

That, above all, is what MAGA people are so goddamn mad about: Many of them aren’t a meaningful part of the economy anymore, and their future prospects are poor. A large chunk of MAGA America could vanish and the rest if us wouldn’t even fucking notice.

I’d be sympathetic to their anger if their anger were productive, but it’s not. They aren’t angry at the people who have actually impoverished them; they’re so dumb and brainwashed, they blame scapegoats instead, for the crime of looking different from them or eating different food or attending a different house of worship.

I cannot get over the farcical nature of Texas’ new anti-abortion law. There are so many things wrong with it, it is hard to know where to begin. Starting with the fact that it tries to grant standing to any random person, anywhere in the country to sue providers of abortions or those who “aided and abetted” in the provision of an abortion, even though that random person has not in any way been personally injured or affected by said abortion. SCOTUS refused to issue an injunction to prevent it going into effect, but can they really refuse to rule on it at all? If this trollish, nonsensical law stands, it seems like the precedents set by it it will collapse the entire justice system by justifying the creation of other preposterous, unfeasible laws, governing any number of issues, not just abortion!

Lucien Greaves is at it again (from Huffpo):

The always-thinking Satanic Temple has an intriguing strategy for women to escape the draconian restrictions of the new Texas abortion law: take an abortion-inducing drug as an expression of religious freedom in a faith-based rite.

A lawyer for the Massachusetts-based temple sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration earlier this week to request that the church be allowed access without prescription to the abortion-inducing drugs mifepristone and misoprostol as part of its “sacramental” abortion ritual. He compared employing the drugs to the use of peyote in certain Native American rituals allowed under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.


All kidding aside, most abortions these days can safely be accomplished with the proper use of these two drugs, which can be obtained online, at least for now. That seems to be the post-Roe strategy to avoid the pre-Roe deaths and mutilations that occurred around clandestine abortion for a long time for poor women.
Rich women always have and always will get their abortions. These restrictions are mostly about punishing poor women for having sex.

I feel like lefties should pull this ploy over and over again until the wingnuts on the Supreme Court want to kill themselves.

If wingnuts can claim “it’s against my religion” to opt out of obeying any damn law they don’t like, then left-wing litigants should do the same and force the justices to come up with justifications for why this “conscience clause” garbage is constitutional only for evangelical Christians who want to torment women and gays.
