There’s the Harvey flooding. The water’s receding now. Damage is being assessed, cleaning up and out has begun. Now, the monster that grows like ‘the Blob’ — and doesn’t die, mold is blossoming. Everywhere. Joy.
Hurricane Irma, which has already done a real number on the Carribean, is bound for Florida.
The Storm of the Century label needs to be recalibrated – Storm of the Decade seems more accurate.
Climate change? Nah, that's just a hoax by the Fake News Media. What? No? But…but what about all those brave Cassandras? Ya know the handful of alleged “scientists” who say humans have nothing to do with climate change/global warming.
Katharine Hayhoe, an atmospheric scientist at Texas Tech University, worked with a team of researchers to look at the 38 papers published in peer-reviewed journals in the last decade that denied anthropogenic global warming.Meanwhile, the sue-happy idiot who the Orange Menace sent in to kill off the Environmental Protection Agency Scott Pruitt, has put a paper pushing Trump campaign bozo in charge of axing grants.
“Every single one of those analyses had an error—in their assumptions, methodology, or analysis—that, when corrected, brought their results into line with the scientific consensus,” Hayhoe wrote.
In this role, John Konkus reviews every award the agency gives out, along with every grant solicitation before it is issued. According to both career and political employees, Konkus has told staff that he is on the lookout for “the double C-word” — climate change — and repeatedly has instructed grant officers to eliminate references to the subject in solicitations.

There are witnesses and, to be clear, the little shits weren’t playing with fireworks which OOPSIE got outta control. Nope. The witness said she saw one of these future Republicans of America lob a smoke bomb down into the ravine. The boy's got a real future in the consciously, callously dimbulbed-by-design Trump administration, eh?Police say they have identified a 15-year-old boy suspected of setting off fireworks that may have sparked a massive wildfire raging outside Portland, Ore.
"It is believed he and others may have been using fireworks which started the forest fire along the Eagle Creek Trail," Oregon State Police said in a news release.
I've got friends in Houston, Florida and Oregon. I'm worried – tense and nervous even.
