    Doomsday , Again

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-...rming-13382086

    World has only 11 years to stop catastrophic climate change, experts warn

    -----Impacts of climate change will be less extreme if temperature rises are curbed at 1.5C above pre-industrial levels than if they climb to 2C-----

    Countries must take "unprecedented" action to slash carbon emissions to zero by 2050 and limit dangerous global warming, a key report has warned.

    Impacts of climate change , from droughts to rising seas, will be less extreme if temperature rises are curbed at 1.5C above pre-industrial levels than if they climb to 2C, the UN-backed study said.

    Limiting warming to 1.5C is possible but will require fast and far-reaching changes to power generation, industry, transport, buildings and potential shifts in lifestyle such as eating less meat.

    Trump EPA acts to roll back control on climate-changing coal



    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency acted again Thursday to ease rules on the sagging U.S. coal industry, this time scaling back what would have been a tough control on climate-changing emissions from any new coal plants.

    The latest Trump administration targeting of legacy Obama administration efforts to slow climate change comes in the wake of multiplying warnings from the agency’s scientists and others about the accelerating pace of global warming.

    In a ceremony Thursday at the agency, acting EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler signed a proposal to dismantle a 2015 rule that any new coal power plants include cutting-edge techniques to capture the carbon dioxide from their smokestacks.

    Wheeler called the Obama rules “excessive burdens” for the coal industry.

    “This administration cares about action and results, not talks and wishful thinking,” Wheeler said.

    Do you know what the initials "EPA" stand for? If you do, that alone makes you more qualified than Wheeler, or that criminal piece of shit Pruitt who was in the office before him.

    Apparently Cheeto & his flunkies think it should mean "Enabling Polluting Assholes"

    Let me get this straight. You guys are so sexually retarded you don’t know which bathroom to use but you can tell me with absolute certainty which government statute would’ve prevented Chernobyl, Fukushima, or 3 Mile? The EPA works in conjunction with the TSA, DEA, NSA, and DOE to insure the FDA types are arrested by the FBI and the ATF.

    By the way, am I the only adult in the United States the noticed that pajama boy was sitting in his parents house at age 26 using his parents paid public power utility to make his Michael Jackson brand cocoa while contemplating the ACA in a onesie?

    I don’t want to talk down anybody here. It doesn’t do anybody any good. I just didn’t know that there were that many experts on radiative forcing throughout the world community. And that I would run into the highest concentration of these experts here of all places.

    I’ve looked at this issue from your side of things believe me. It makes sense to reuse what you can. So don’t take it personally if I don’t believe a bunch of idiots that just walked out of Columbia University that were screwing and shitting in the streets 10 years ago are capable of understanding global warming. The same idiots are now driving a Chevy Volt and online shopping at Amazon.

    And just a side note: Baby it’s cold outside…

    3 big takeaways from the major new US climate report
    Climate change is here, it’s expensive, and it’s deadly, according to a dire new report.


    Federal scientists have once again contradicted the White House, this time in a major new climate change assessment that was inauspiciously rushed to release the Friday after Thanksgiving. Their findings, however, should give even the Trump administration pause: Global warming could cause more harm to the US economy by 2100 than even the Great Recession did.

    And the risks aren’t just down the road. The 1,600-page report directly connects climate change to ongoing issues like declining water levels in the Colorado River Basin and the spread of ticks carrying Lyme disease, phenomena that are currently costing Americans resources and lives.

    Here are three key takeaways from the report.

    1) Climate change is expensive

    By the end of the century, warming on our current trajectory would cost the US economy upward of $500 billion a year in crop damage, lost labor, and extreme weather damages. This is almost double the economic blow of the Great Recession in the early 2000s.

    “With continued growth in emissions at historic rates, annual losses in some economic sectors are projected to reach hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century —more than the current gross domestic product (GDP) of many U.S. states,” according to the report.

    There are also second-order costs to contend with. Rising temperatures, for instance, make power generation more inefficient, raising the costs of electricity.

    No region of the country is immune to these costs. From fisheries to agriculture to tourism, major sectors of the economy stand to be damaged by climate change.

    This echoes findings from earlier this year that the US faces some of the highest social costs of carbon dioxide in the world. But it also implies that the inverse is true: Fighting climate change has huge financial benefits. Cutting greenhouse gases makes sense simply for our own economic self-interest.

    2) Climate change is deadly

    Rising temperatures kill — in any number of indirect ways, the report notes, but literally, too.

    The most direct way they do so is by increasing the frequency, intensity, and duration of heat waves; this summer alone, we saw deadly temperature spikes in Japan, Canada, and Pakistan that killed dozens of people.

    In the US, this heat is expected to more than offset any lives saved from warmer winters. “With continued warming, cold-related deaths are projected to decrease and heat-related deaths are projected to increase; in most regions, increases in heat-related deaths are expected to outpace reductions in cold-related deaths,” according to the report.

    Other maladies are also projected to get worse as the climate changes. Mosquitoes that spread viruses like West Nile and Zika are seeing their ranges grow. The ticks that spread Lyme disease are moving northward. Pollen-spewing plants are making allergy seasons longer and ever more severe as warmer winters and higher carbon dioxide levels make them more active.

    The scientists in the report projected that air quality will suffer as well. The pollution we breathe in is already one of the biggest killers in the world, taking years off of people’s lives. Rising average temperatures worsen ground-level ozone, which can harm breathing. It can also exacerbate sources of pollution like wildfires, which have created some of the worst breathing conditions in the world this month in California.

    3) We can still do something to limit global warming and counter its effects

    We already have most of the tools we need to aggressively curb carbon dioxide emissions, thereby limiting the rise in global average temperatures. According to the report’s scientists, we must use them.

    “Future impacts and risks from climate change are directly tied to decisions made in the present,” the assessment reads.

    These tactics range from shifting to cleaner energy, to changing how we use land, to pulling carbon dioxide out of the air. The question is whether there is enough political will to deploy these methods on a meaningful scale.

    Before you start your Dunning-Kruger on your own governments report remember this group was set up by Bush senior and was put together by

    National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
    Department of Agriculture
    Department of Defence
    Department of Energy
    Department of Health
    Department of Interior
    Department of State
    Department of Transport
    EPA
    NASA
    The National Science Foundation and the fucking Smithsonian.

    Of course they are ALL wrong and Jack Dunning and President Kruger just know best.

    So the summation of your article from Vox says the weather is an expensive killer that will get worse. Will global warming get worse in the coming Ice Age?

    I can think of 100 places we need to spend money other than the EPA and not one of those departments are under the jurisdiction of Scotland.

    I don't know who the fuck Kruger is other than some guy in Animal House. Every coming Ice Age you guys pull some other horses ass out of your computer model. So understand this for about the last time: your computer model can't replicate the amount of SO2 pouring into the atmosphere every time Hawaii errupts.

    Baby it's cold outside...

    This is really beginning to piss me off. Al Gore and the assholes at the IPCC missed the deadline in 2016 so now we got 2030. When are you guys ever correct about this?

    You guys show up to the grown-ups table with a computer model and a copy of the World Weekly claiming global warming is going to kill everybody alongside an article featuring some alien that fucked Marilyn Monroe.

    Get your shit together. All you want is more of my money and a way to keep getting it. If you guys have been smart enough to include that bullshit in Obamacare you have your global warming budget instead of lying about tipping points that don't exist.

    Your government wants a trillion of your dollars to update your nuclear weapons for what reason? The F35 fighter program is running at what $1.5 trillion dollars?

    All of the people that know anything say something needs to be done about climate change but you are owned by a few well placed big business propaganda pieces.

    You as a single lunatic is completely unimportant but there are many millions of other fuckwits just like you in the US so it is important to try and work out what went wrong with your thought processes.

    First let me say on the global warming bullshit; this isn't a medical prevention program, it isn't a dental prevention program, it's not OB/GYN, it isn't about building floodgates or flood walls or dams, it isn't about better streets, it isn't about better lighting, it isn't about better education in the public schools, and most importantly is not about government. You can't stop it if it decides to go rogue. In spite of all your sanctimonious horse shit, in spite of all your self-centered purposeless lives, in spite of all your consensual science your total contribution to the world concerning global warming is the same as if you stick your fist in the lake and then pull it back out. You got that?

    You will not have saved one breath for anybody, one drink of cool water, and you will have provided not one single hot shower. But you can go to bed better off knowing the amount of time you wasted on the weather didn't feed one single hungry kid tonight.

    Only an idiot like you would misread me entirely. It's because you can't see past your government and my wallet.

    If 300 million of you idiots and I mean ding dang fucking idiots that think you know better than anything about atmosphere, time parameters with regard to spatial displacement throughout the entire universe, and probability versus relativity in the time/space continuum of our universe; please fly to Hawaii and march yourselves up to the nearest volcano and jump in. You'll totally prove the point on how much SO2 a tree hugger can inhale before falling dead and the incineration point/avg. at which humans pull a Spinal Tap drummer.

    This is the sun. This is the earth.

    You still want to talk about nuclear proliferation?
