Add climate change to our list of problems.


Still don't believe that climate change is real? 

Well, if you have been living in the FOX NEWS bubble over the past few years, you might still believe that it's all just a hoax. 

I hate to break it to you, but  if you do, you're in for a big surprise. 

The following is portions of an article from the Zinn Education Project: 

"If you have been reading the news or watching Democracy Now!, you have seen how climate chaos is crashing through the world:

Over 100 million people are under heat advisories in the United States as an early-season heat wave continues to break records from the Southwest to the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. According to the National Interagency Fire Center, firefighters are battling more than three dozen uncontained fires.

In Iraq, a massive dust storm hospitalized more than 5,000 people with respiratory ailments, in the latest of seven terrible dust storms to hit that country in just the last month. Temperatures in the Middle East and Central Asia have already soared to 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels.

In Montana, record flooding has forced the closing of all five entrances to Yellowstone National Park. Roads and bridges in the area have been washed away. Flood levels on the Yellowstone River are now beyond record levels.

Pakistan and India just suffered through their hottest April in a century of record-keeping, with temperatures reaching more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit in parts of South Asia, resulting in misery for millions in that region.[Source]   

As if we don't have enough to worry about. 

Thoughts?

My nephew wrote an article for NOAA on analyzing winter and spring climate conditions precipitation, temperatures, drought, to predict the extent of wildfires during the upcoming summer season across western U.S. The model predicts another severe wildfire season but not to the extent of last year. He's receiving threats from assorted lunatic fringe types who think it's all horseshit and they point to another study done by noted climate scientist Mean Marjo Green that wildfires are caused by space lasers installed by George Soros on another galaxy.

My dad worked for the US Forest Service for thirty years starting in 1961 and it just didn't used to be this way. Full stop. Between the drought and the beetles in has enabled, right around half of the standing timber in the forests around here (just south of Yosemite) is dead, just waiting for a heat wave and a spark to burn.
We have the heat wave this week, and we're hoping to avoid the spark.
They did extensive prescribed burns earlier this year, but it's too hot and dry to do any more, and we live in what they call "the gap" between two massive burn scars, 2017's Railroad fire, which was close enough to drop burning embers the size of your foot right next to the house, and 2020's Creek fire four ridges to the east of here that was at the time California's largest single wildfire (not a complex of fires).
This year was the driest winter on record, and followed a couple of early snows that were just enough to build up the fuel load that has been drying since January.
So yeah, some of us have been paying attention to climate change for a while now.

I think maybe 50% of the back county oak trees in San Diego and Riverside counties are very sick or dying from lack of water which makes them more susceptible to bark beetles. We used to be home to some of the healthiest oak trees in California with trees as old as three hundred years or so.

I remember thirty years ago in happier times there was a study to be made of the unique oak genomes to be found in Julian and Ramona. It was a beautiful tribute to these timeless witnesses to history.

There are still many lovely forests. Everything brightens up in the rainy season. Manzanitas and smaller native shrubs thrive and provide habitat. Glorious springtimes, rainy winters and pretty autumns abound. But the overall markers of the health of the forests are telling. Dry seasons are very nearly year-round in many places. Timberlines climb higher as species struggle to keep up. Fire season starts in May or June or earlier in a dry year. Even the El Niño phenomenon in 2015-2016 did not produce a long rainy season in Southern California. At least we did have rain from November to March, our normal rainy season.

2014 it seemed as if California was on fire. Temperatures along the I-5 corridor hovered around 108 degrees from Bakersfield to nary close to Mt. Shasta. 2018 was worse. The Thomas Fire burned an entire forest surrounding Ojai. Ojai itself was so hot it was impossible to walk around outside of the car or the resort. I'm talking about 110 degrees. Normally cool areas in my city had no relief from 106 degree temperatures. My own little canyon-cooled palisade roost had several days of 106 degree temperatures. This was unheard of twenty years ago. Temps have been mild for two or three years now, but rain is way down. I fear the next deadly heat wave. I can barely keep one room in the house down in the 80s when it is over 100 degrees outside. Thank the Goddess we still have cool nights. I remember seeking the library just to sit in the AC for hours on end reading and chilling.

So I visited Mt. Shasta the summer of 2014. The entire snowcap on the peak had very nearly melted away to a tiny pencil tip.

S'posed to be 105 debris here on Sunday. We have had some thunderstorms but only minute amount of rains with them. Crops look okay so far, but my spuds don't appreciate hot temps. I, personally, can handle some heat while I work in my garden.

Teens charged in South Street mass shooting extradited back to Philadelphia

Qaadir Dukes-Hill and Nahjee Whittington were both taken into custody in Richmond, Virginia.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The two teenagers charged in connection with a mass shooting on South Street are back in Philadelphia, police said Wednesday.

Qaadir Dukes-Hill, 18, of Drexel Hill, and Nahjee Whittington, 17, of Philadelphia, are both facing murder charges, authorities said. Hill is charged in the death of Alexis Quinn, while Whittington is accused in the death Kristopher Minners, 22.

Both teens were arrested at an apartment in Richmond, Virginia, on June 9 by federal marshals. They were both extradited to face charges in Philadelphia.

Three people died in the shooting on South Street, and several other people were injured.

Joanne Pescatore, homicide unit chief at the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, said that according to surveillance video, the two teens, who are friends and had fled to Virginia together, fired randomly into the crowd in response to hearing gunshots down the block. It did not appear that the teens and the victims knew one another.

"It appears that they had guns, took them out and just started randomly firing," Pescatore said.

So the last few mass shooters were all teenagers. Seems like common sense to raise the age to at least 21 to purchase a gun or hell 25. Can buy an assault rifle but can't rent a car. Weird country. This makes sense because the human brain isn't fully developed until around 25.

Age restrictions are a pretty difficult call, though. The same “undeveloped brains” logic says you should raise the age of sexual consent to 25, as well as yank youngsters’ right to join the military or vote. I don’t think those plans would go over too well.

As for driving, it’s a myth that you can’t legally rent a car until age 25. It’s either 18 or 21 in all states. Young drivers do end up paying more to rent a car, though, because insurance companies get away with charging more for young drivers and car rental agencies can legally pass those costs on.

The New Mexico state supreme court has ordered Otero county commissioners to do their damn jobs and certify the primary election held on June 7, that one of the commissioners said she couldn't certify because she knew in her heart that the Dominion vote tabulators were somehow illegitimate.
They have given them until tomorrow to do so, a deadline complicated by the fact that a different commissioner is due in court in DC tomorrow for his involvement in the January 6 riot.
These are only county commissioners. The goddamn Republicans have election denying idiots running for state SOS in multiple states, and already winning their primaries, setting them up to run the elections in those states if they win their general elections.
This is the manifestation of the goddamn Republicans' all out assault on American democracy, which they can no longer reliably win elections in despite heavy institutional bias in their favor.

Mike,

105 degrees is getting pretty hot for working. I know that people in places like Desert Hot Springs, CA or Phoenix can work or walk for hours in 100 degree plus weather, but they are acclimated to a high heat index.

Isn't the high 80s more typical for this time of year in a place like Des Moines or Burlington?

Lilacpr said...

The dirt and smog pollution from China and other countries factories is coating the glaciers grey causing them to absorb more sun heat and melt, that's a huge contributing factor. But of course mankind cannot do without it's modern conveniences so it will continue and increase until life can no longer exist on the polluted earth, at which point the globe will slowly engulf and destroy all traces of this 'civilization'. The only remnants will be things made with earths natural materials, stone etc.. Then the earth will start all over creating 'life'. Remember they say earth is 'millions' of years old. These future people will find any natural stone artifacts that we may have made and exclaim "look stuff from this ancient civilization' oooh they were so intelligent but of course not highly developed!"... The nerve talking about us like that! xD

In a Tesla, I’d be more worried about the dangerous, faulty “driver assist” computer spontaneously deciding to crash the car than about the batteries running out of juice.

There have been a lot of wrecks, and I expect a very expensive class action lawsuit will soon be headed in Tesla’s general direction.

How is it that every time Insane Clown commits a crime it requires an additional burden of proof not only that he committed the crime but intended to commit such. First Manhattan AG Bragg has apparently dropped the bank fraud case (although the parallel investigation by NY State AG James is ongoing it is civil not criminal) and now we are hearing the same shit with "J6". This committee damn well better explicitly recommend indictments of Insane Clown and others. They better do the needful to follow up sharing transcripts and whatever else DOJ requires. After one hearing after another being all about Insane Clown they damn well come up with better than some changes to the Electoral Count Act. Again and again Democrats demonstrate a will to lose.

Tesla has also taken an additional beating because Musk unwisely flushed a bunch of the company’s money down the toilet by investing it in shitcoin.

Tesla (TSLA) has lost over $500 million from its Bitcoin investment amid crypto winter

Mystere said...

Field, you asked for our thoughts on the current extent of climate change.

I am more worried now than I was five years ago for my adult son's future. I'm also more worried for my own future, as I'm now in my mid-60s and the next two decades are not looking very promising for old folks. The time to start stockpiling non-perishables is now. I'm not a survivalist, just a realist.

There are too many red flags popping up all over the world to allow me much hope for human survival unless things change radically and very soon. I really didn't want to be around for the end, but no one ever does; it's not a choice one gets to make, unless one chooses to check out, and I've decided against that. For now.

Climate affects everything. The worse climate change gets, the more imperiled life everywhere will be. In the face of this fact, it's hard to not be terrified every single day, but one has to wall that terror off in order to continue living.

That's my truth.

dinthebeast said...

A heat wave in southwest Kansas killed thousands of cattle recently. The reported numbers vary, but 2,000 seems to be the lowest confirmed number.
"The figure from the state health and environment agency reflects only the losses at farms that asked for help in disposing of carcasses, suggesting the actual tally could be higher."
Having raised cattle when I was growing up, I have little sympathy for the greedy bastards who didn't even provide shade for their animals, but that is how animals are raised these days.
It would appear that climate change might make that obsolete.

-Doug in Sugar Pine

mike from iowa said...

Cattle tend to bunch up in extremely hot weather to help fight flies, or so I have been told. I noticed in the winter time while feeding them by hand in feed bunks the trememdous amount of body heat they lose in the cold.

With adequate feed and water and shelter from stong winds cattle survive nicely at 20 below zero. Extreme summer heat is a different animal.

Because admitting that the Democrats aren't abominable monsters might cause old Rusty to lose his job, and he's not willing to go that far just to be a decent human being.

Eventually, there won’t be any coal-fired powered plants.

I was appalled when I heard that Rusty said he would vote for Trump if he runs again. I'm surprised that Rusty's head doesn't explode from all of the cognitive dissonance he is coping with.

Philadelphia: Fatal Self-Defense Shootings Soar as Concealed Carry Applications Rise

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that justifiable homicides are rising in Philadelphia as concealed carries surge in the city.

The Inquirer lists three recent incidents in which individuals legally carrying concealed firearms shot and killed their assailants.

The paper then noted, “These sorts of deadly clashes in which the intended victims survive and assailants die are rare in Philadelphia, but are becoming more common as a growing number of people have legally armed themselves amid rising numbers of carjackings, shootings and homicides.”

The Inquirer observes that “justified homicides jumped 67 percent from 2020 to 2021.” And 2022 is on pace to surpass the number of justifiable homicides witnessed last year.

Philadelphia’s deputy police commissioner Benjamin Naish said, “We have seen an increase in the number of people that have been applying for and receiving a permit to carry. I think that they are concerned about their safety, and they’re carrying it legally, which is the big difference.”

On June 18, 2022, [we] highlighted a CBS Philly report showing the highest annual number of concealed carry permit applications the city received between 2017 and 2020 was 11,814.

In 2021, the number of concealed carry permits skyrocketed to 70,790.

Very courageous and heartbreaking testimony from Shaye and Mama Ruby. Hopefully the committee will be equally courageous and issue criminal referrals of Insane Clown, Rude Boy Giuliani, Eastman and all the rest of the Insane Clown crime family. Hopefully they will not beclown themselves by proposing feeble shit amendments to the Electoral Count Act and calling it a day. But Democrats have shown themselves to be sheepish and submissive at every turn so I'm not optimistic.

Obviously.

But even according to the national numbers posted earlier, only about 60% of US electricity comes from fossil fuels. Not coal. ALL fossil fuels.

The rest, about 40%, is nuclear and renewables.

And, again, eventually, there will be no coal-fired power plants. More and more of our electricity is going green every day. The idiot troll sticking his fingers in his ears and going "la la la" won't stop that from happening.

Too bad the films are horror movies, in which a deranged orange-skinned psychopath commits an attempted murder of democracy.

EV are available now, and result in lower carbon emissions in those states that already have a lot of non-fossil fuel electricity generation.

Also, have you noticed how expensive it is to pump gasoline into your ICE vehicle lately? That’s going to continue to suck, for the “immediate future.” EV owners are feeling pretty smug at the moment.

I've taken the liberty of copying the link just to drive home the point:  the "gun worshippers" you are condemmning are all black.

I am entirely down with stripping blacks of any right to own or even temporarily possess guns.

Save for a small minority, blacks are stupid, violent and worthless.

This seems to be auto-censored now.

I’d like to think so, but probably not. They’ll just go with:
“eViL bIdEn MaDe GaS pRiCeS gO uP.”

That’s what Fox “News” told them, so …

If the gun worshippers were all black we would have had gun control a long time ago.

Like I asked you before or maybe it was some other Anonymouse. Of course you are all in limiting the "2A" to White Christians. That is because you are a Nazi. Uncle Clarence is in for a rude awakening when he finds out there are no honorary Nazis and you don't want his black ass around either.

Be prepared for gun toting (concealed) magats to go where ever the hell they want with theit little shooty gun penis extensions now that Uncle Tom says the constitution is jake with guns everywhere.

Fergus is glued to his TV for the hearings and flying into repeated rages as he sits impotently and watches his criming splashed all across the screen.
If the hearings accomplished nothing else, at least they ruined Fergus' day a few times.
I have higher hopes for them, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Unless he watches Fox. They didn't show anything about the hearings. Pretty sad a large segment of America will know nothing about a major news story.

Trump Close to Screaming at TV During Hearings

June 23, 2022 at 6:22 am EDT By Taegan Goddard 111 Comments

Former President Donald Trump “has tuned into every hearing and has grown increasingly irate — to “‘the point of about to scream at the TV,’ according to a close adviser — with what he views as the lack of defense by his Capitol Hill allies,” the Washington Post reports.

“Trump has said privately for months that McCarthy’s decision to pull pro-Trump Republicans from sitting on the Jan. 6 select committee was a mistake, one that has become clearer as Trump watches the hearings that are working to build the case that he should be criminally charged for conspiring to overturn the 2020 presidential election.”

We used to have those.  They were called "black codes", and went along with things like racial covenants and "sundown towns".  The latter two prevented ghettoization quite effectively, until the SCOTUS outlawed them in 1948.

Of course you are all in limiting the "2A" to White Christians. That is because you are a Nazi.

I was wondering when you'd bring the other N-word out.

The real irony is that I was an avowed atheist for most of my life.
