GLOBAL WARMING Exacerbates Earth’s Weather & Turns ‘Not Even A Tropical Depression’ Into A Category 5 HURRICANE MATTHEW Because Of Deep Warm Waters In The Caribbean! Media Weathermen Discuss Hurricane Matthew, But Persist In Blackout Of ‘CLIMATE CHANGE LINK’ TO MATTHEW That Is Its Cause. Republican Political Pressure On Media Is Obviously The Source Of That Silence! Donald Trump & Mike Pence Are CLIMATE CHANGE DENIAL DREAM TEAM. Those ‘Lost Souls’, Who Believe Donald Trump Will Change Things In Their Favor, Have Only To Look At This Issue To Know They Are Being Deceived BIG TIME! Trump Will Only Serve Corporate Capitalism, Not We The People! But Undereducated People Are Reality Show ‘Feeling’ People, Who Do Not Analyze & Cannot Cogitate! This Is The Main ‘Achilles’ Heel’ Of Democracy – Democracy Will Never Work Well If The General Population Is Undereducated! Mainstream Republicans Cannot Understand Difference Between Real Sincerity & Political Promises. Saying It’s So Does NOT Make It So!

MICHAEL MANN: Thanks, Amy! You know, it’s unfortunate that some in the weather community are not providing that critical context for understanding this trend towards increasingly devastating tropical storms and hurricanes. Matthew is a very good example of a storm that was unique, unprecedented, in certain respects. It intensified far more quickly than any other storm that we’ve seen in modern history, basically going from not even a tropical depression to a near-hurricane-strength storm over the course of, you know, less than half a day, and then, the next day, of course, strengthening into a major hurricane, a Category 5 hurricane. It’s weakened a little bit, but now it’s restrengthening.

And where that intensification, where that rapid intensification occurred was in the region of the Caribbean that has the greatest heat content, not just that the ocean surface temperatures are warm, but there’s a very deep layer of warm water. And that’s important, because that helps sustain these storms as they churn up the ocean. The churning doesn’t bring cold water to the surface to weaken the storm, if there’s a deep layer of warmth. And that all has a climate change signature with it, not just the fact that the ocean surface temperatures in the Caribbean are at near-record levels, but the—just the sheer depth of that warm water is unprecedented. And as the surface warming penetrates into the ocean, we are seeing increases in ocean heat content. Last year was the warmest our oceans have ever been on record. And that’s critical context. It’s that warmth that provides the energy that intensifies these storms. And it isn’t a coincidence that we’ve seen the strongest hurricane in both hemispheres within the last year. Continue reading

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.

Turning Point Or Global Disaster? Paris Accord Is Too Little, Too Late – The Only Real Solution To Carbon Emissions & Global Warming Is DE-CARBONIZE: LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND! No More Coal, No More Oil, No More Natural Gas! Conversion From Oil To Gas Is As POINTLESS As Filters On Cigarettes To Avoid Tars. To Listen To Tobacco Companies Promote Cigarettes, To Listen To The NRA Promote Guns For All To Protect All, To Listen To War Profiteers Promote A Military Solution, To Listen To Energy Companies Promote Fossil Fuels For Their Own Financial Reward Is GLOBAL SUICIDE For Planet Earth! Paris Accord Is ‘DEATH SENTENCE’ For Millions Living Near Ocean/Sea Coasts Where Water Level Will Rise & Submerge Vulnerable Inhabitants. Goodbye Florida! Au Revoir Manhattan! And ‘California Dreaming’ Will Be Nightmare! Heeding The Biased Rhetoric Of CAPITALISTS’ VESTED INTERESTS, Whose Prime Directive Is To ‘Maximize Their Profits’, Is The Stupidest Road We The People Could Travel! President Obama Makes All Manure Smell Like Roses – That’s His Gift. My Gift Is Truth Without Apology. Barack Gets Paid To Blow Smoke Up Your Rectum; I Don’t! He Can Live In The Mountains If He Chooses – Tabacco Lives On Long Island!

GEORGE MONBIOT: Well, yes, and one of the most reluctant nations historically to cut its emissions, the Senate blocking all progress again and again. We see at the moment the most active president in this respect and, in the foreseeable future, the most active one we’re likely to have. And part of my pessimism—and, you know, I would love to embrace Michael’s optimistic vision—hinges on the fact that whoever the successor to President Obama might be—whether it’s, for instance, Hillary Clinton or, heaven forbid, one of her Republican rivals—we’re unlikely to get such an engaged and active president pushing this agenda. And if this is the best we can do under the best president there’s been where this issue is concerned, well, I hate to think what comes next!

We can’t afford not to get out of fossil fuels, not to, basically, shut down fossil fuel industries, rather than giving them buckets of money out of the public treasury.

AMY GOODMAN: Michael Brune, if you could respond, and also to George Monbiot’s comment in his Guardian piece? He said, “By comparison to what it could have been, it’s a miracle. By comparison to what it should have been, it’s a disaster”.

TABACCO: The Voters have 2-Choices in 2016 Election:
1- BERNIE SANDERS and 2- DISASTER! (No, Bernie’s not paying me for my Endorsement; he doesn’t have to! I live in this world too!) Continue reading

MORE CAPITALIST DIRTY TRICKS – This Time It’s Canadian Oil Corporation, TransCanada, Requesting The Obama Administration Temporarily DELAY Keystone XL Review Of Its Permit Application Until Nebraska, (A State Along Pipeline’s Route), Gives Its Approval (EXCUSE). TransCanada Wants To BUY TIME Until Obama LEAVES OFFICE Because Obama Is Expected To Reject The Pipeline (REASON)! Tabacco: We Don’t Accuse TransCanada Of Being Illegal; We Accuse Them Of Being IMMORAL! Tabacco Has Repeatedly Warned Readers To NOT NECESSARILY Believe The ‘JUSTIFICATIONS’ Capitalists Give For Their Initiatives; Capitalists Have Been Known To LIE ABOUT SUCH THINGS! Remember George W. Bush’s Iraq War EXCUSE Re Saddam’s Alleged Involvement In 9/11/2001? Saddam Was NOT INVOLVED & BUSH KNEW IT – GWB LIED & VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS BOUGHT IT! EXCUSES Are NOT REASONS – LOOK DEEPER!

“This is an extraordinary moment for grassroots activism and the fight against fossil fuels”, said Friends of the Earth President Erich Pica. “For seven years, people from around the United States campaigned together to transform a previously routine decision to approve a pipeline into a leadership test on climate change.”

The Keystone XL pipeline’s primary function would have been to move oil from the tar sands region of Alberta, Canada to port facilities on the South Texas coast, for shipping to overseas customers.

Climate scientist James Hansen, former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote in The New York Times, “If Canada proceeds, and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate”. Hansen is one of more than 1,200 people who were arrested in front of the White House, protesting Keystone XL. Continue reading

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

3 Firefighters Killed, Troops Called in, as Wildfires Rage Across West

In Washington state, three firefighters have been killed and four others injured as wildfires continue to rage across the Western United States. The firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service were reportedly killed after fire overtook their vehicle following an accident near the towns of Twisp and Winthrop. All residents of both towns have been ordered to evacuate.

Meanwhile, the Idaho-based National Interagency Fire Center has called in 200 active-duty military troops to fight wildfires, marking the first time the agency has mobilized the military for firefighting in nearly a decade. – Democracy Now! Continue reading
