End Of Hottest Year Ever, Which Smashes Last Year’s Record-Breaker! Massive Deadly U.S. Rainstorms, 70-Degree Christmas, Tornadoes, Droughts, Flash Floods, Broken Temperature Records, Followed By Major Snowstorms. But Republican Officials Still Preach That There Is Nothing To Worry About. Climate Change Has Nothing To Do With It! Global Warming Has Nothing To Do With It. For GOPers It’s Just Business As Usual.

AMY GOODMAN: At least 43 people died over the Christmas holiday weekend in a series of storms that hit the South, Southwest and Midwest United States. Missouri and New Mexico declared states of emergency. Tornadoes were reported in 10 states, including Michigan, which recorded its first-ever tornado in December. The deadliest storms were in Texas, where at least 11 people died when tornadoes hit areas near Dallas. As many as a thousand homes were damaged. Now a major snowstorm is heading toward the region. The storm has already resulted in blizzard-like conditions in New Mexico, Oklahoma and western Texas. The snowstorm even disrupted the college football Sun Bowl being played in El Paso on the Mexico border. Another 10 people died in tornadoes in Mississippi, six more in Tennessee. Flash floods also killed at least 13 people in Missouri, Illinois and Arkansas, where as much as nine inches of rain fell on some areas.

Meanwhile, heat records were broken Christmas Day across the East Coast from Maine to Georgia. On Christmas Eve, the thermometer topped a record-breaking 70 degrees Fahrenheit in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. This weekend of extreme weather comes as climatologists predict 2015 will be the warmest year ever recorded, smashing last year’s record. So far in 2015, nine out of the 11 months have set a new monthly temperature record. Meanwhile, in South America, as many as 160,000 people have been evacuated due to heavy storms in Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil.

Lawmakers Seek Probe Of Oil Giant, EXXON, For Hiding Knowledge Of Climate Change! PRISON For Exxon Execs? Why We Must Never Trust CAPITALISTS & Why DEREGULATION Is A Horrific Concept, Which Allows Criminals To Maximize Profits – Fair Trade Is A Mythological Creature At Best, Used To Excuse, Permit & Camouflage Corporate Malfeasances! Why You Should NEVER VOTE FOR ANY REPUBLICAN, REGARDLESS OF SKINTONE! This Isn’t Just A Matter Of ‘Immoral Politics’; It’s A Matter Of LIFE-&-DEATH FOR ALL HUMANITY!

From ’86 to ’92: “Croasdale’s team looked at both the positive and negative effects that a warming Arctic would have on oil operations, reporting its findings to Exxon headquarters in Houston and New Jersey. The good news for Exxon, he told an audience of academics and government researchers in 1992, was that ‘potential global warming can only help lower exploration and development costs’ in the Beaufort Sea. But, he added, it also posed hazards, including higher sea levels and bigger waves, which could damage the company’s existing and future coastal and offshore infrastructure, including drilling platforms, artificial islands, processing plants and pump stations. And a thawing earth could be troublesome for those facilities as well as pipelines.” Continue reading

CNN & Compatriots Praise POPE FRANCIS With Overkill That Drove Me To Distraction! Then I Watched Democracy Now! & Saw The Light: DN! Covers Pope Praising Americans, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Dorothy Day & Thomas Merton And Rebuking US Politicians On Climate Change, Hunger, Homelessness, Unfettered Capitalism & War, Subjects GOP Presidential Debaters Pretend Do Not Exist. Pope Francis Said & Did A Lot More Than Just Kiss The Heads Of Physically-Challenged Kids! So Why The Network Disconnect? Answer: For The Same Reason MSM Ignored MLK’s Anti-Vietnam War Stance – The MSM Serves Capitalism’s Abominations! + Full Text Of Pope’s UN Address! Unlike The MSM, Tabacco Has Nothing To Hide! STOP! – Kim Davis Meets With Pope, Who Thanks Her For Her Courage On QT? After Offering Olive Branch To Gays, Pope Panders To Bigots! Nobody Else Will Say It, But Tabacco Will, “Pope Francis Can’t Be Trusted Because He Is A HYPOCRITE!” Nobody’s Perfect, Not Even This Pope!

Pope Francis has arrived in New York, where he will speak today at the United Nations General Assembly. On Thursday he became the first Pope ever to address a joint session of Congress, where he discussed poverty, hunger, climate change, refugees, immigration, the arms trade and U.S.-Cuba relations. After the congressional speech, Pope Francis skipped an offer to dine with lawmakers in order to eat with homeless residents of Washington, D.C. Speaking at St. Patrick Parish, Pope Francis spoke about the immorality of lack of housing.

Pope Francis: “I want to be very clear: We can find no social or moral justification, no justification whatsoever, for the lack of housing. There are many unjust situations, but we know that God is suffering with us, experiencing them on our side. He does not abandon us”.

Speaking at the United Nations today, Pope Francis called on world leaders to protect the Earth. He said, “In effect, a selfish and boundless thirst for power and material prosperity leads both to the misuse of available natural resources and to the exclusion of the weak and disadvantaged … The poorest are those who suffer most from such offenses, for three serious reasons: They are cast off by society, forced to live off what is discarded and suffer unjustly from the abuse of the environment. They are part of today’s widespread and quietly growing ‘culture of waste.’”

Apparently the MSM is tone-deaf to these subjects! If I had my druthers, all Major Networks would be denied Renewal Licenses re News Broadcasts until they shape up and deliver Real News, not Sitcom/Adventure Show Commercials & Repartee – Tabacco Continue reading

EXXON KNEW! 34-Years Ago The Exxon Executives Knew That Burning Fossil Fuels Was Effecting Climate Change & Global Warming. Now We Have The Documents To Prove It! Exxon (Now ExxonMobil) Spent Million$ To Prevent The Planet From Doing Anything About It To MAXIMIZE Their Own Financial Profits – The Planet Be Damned! Does Any Of This Surprise You? Are Republican Apologists Listening?

“I think that this statement may be too reassuring”, Cohen, director of the Theoretical and Mathematical Sciences Laboratory at Exxon Research, wrote in an August 18, 1981 memo to Glass.

He called it “distinctly possible” that the projected warming trend after 2030 “will indeed be catastrophic (at least for a substantial fraction of the earth’s population)”.

Cohen continued: “This is because the global ecosystem in 2030 might still be in a transient, headed for much significant effects after time lags perhaps of the order of decades”.

Cohen demonstrated a sophisticated understanding of the climate system. He recognized that even if the impacts were modest in 2030, the world would have locked in enough CO2 emissions to ensure more severe consequences in subsequent decades. By 2030, he warned, the damage could be irreversible. Continue reading
