    Sunday

    Greetings friends, The real source of all of the problems brought about by hurricane Harvey is man-made global warming. Water temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico are much higher than normal and are now the hottest oceanic waters in the world. The death and destruction wrought by hurricane Harvey is our fault. Everyone, especially those who deny global warming, like Trump, are at fault and should be held accountable. During the presidency of Barack Obama we saw a decrease in the number of storms and the severity of storms. Why was that you may ask? Because President Barack Obama was proactive and took steps to reduce man-made global warming. The illegitimately selected Trump immediately set out to undo President Barack Obama's initiatives to combat global warming. Hurricane Harvey is the result and it took only six months of so called "leadership" by Trump to bring the most destructive hurricane to our shores since hurricane Katrina and that was during the illegitimate presidency of George W. Bush. This would not have happened under a Hillary Clinton presidency. Since it is clear that Trump is not going to be removed from office and the rightfully elected Hillary Clinton placed into the office of the president, we will be forced to endure many more of these severe storms until we re-institute the initiatives implemented by President Barack Obama. But, in the meantime, we can all do what we can to minimize global warming. Think globally and act locally. Peace.
  2. Greetings friends, It is now official. The year 2016 was predicted to be the hottest on record and now it is confirmed that 2016 was the hottest on record. The earth continues to get hotter and hotter and it is due to man-made global warming. Every year we, especially in the United States, continue to ignore the science, continue to ignore the evidence, and continue to spew carbon dioxide, a dangerous, poisonous, greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere. And yet the solutions to our CO2 emissions are available and so easily implemented, yet we continue to stall and delay their implementation. Wind, solar, and geothermal energy are the answers. Combined with higher efficiency lighting sources, electrically powered vehicles, greater use of public transportation, and the elimination of air conditioning and the use of fossil fuels, would greatly reduce our CO2 emissions. Yet year after year, decade after decade, we do nothing and now we are paying the price. Freakishly hot weather, then short periods of cold weather and very heavy snow, such as what we are witnessing in Pacific Northwest, then a rapid return of abnormally warm weather resulting in winter flooding and summer droughts. How much longer must we tolerate such extreme weather before we unite in the push for a cleaner, greener Mother Earth? I cry for our planet and for the United States, especially as we prepare to install Donald Trump, a global warming denier, as our next president. The people spoke and voted for Hillary Clinton, yet somehow, Donald Trump was selected to be president. I can only hope that he will quickly be impeached and perhaps the people will remove his entire administration and install our rightful president, Hillary Clinton. It is a sad time for the United States, I feel so much sympathy for the majority who voted, yet their voices have been ignored. If there was ever a case for massive voter disenfranchisement, the election of 2016 is it! Please join me in the effort to save Mother Earth. You can also join me in the effort to impeach Donald Trump by going to the following website and signing the petition for impeachment. Peace. https://www.change.org/p/the-people-impeach-donald-j-trump
  3. Mr. Whizkid, I can assure you that I am not the one with the closed mind. My mind is very much open and that is why I can see the world and this country, as well as history, for what they are and not the lies that some try to teach. Do you really think either Bush was a good president? It is laughable to think that either of them could be included in the top twenty presidents. And you cannot even consider the likes of Washington or any of "the founders" as being great in today's standards. All of the so called "founders" were backwards thinking slave owners. Oh, they spoke of freedom and equality for everyone, but their words were lies as only white men were equal, those of color were less than equal, they were just property to be bought and sold. This is why groups like Black Lives Matter exist today. The people of color are tired of being second class citizens, treated as sub-human, left to languish in poverty and preyed upon by whites. Black lives do matter and it is past time for whites to pay their debt to all people of color. As for the ramblings of Mr. Fick, he is more correct than you think. The American elites have selected a man who is a racist, bigoted, homophobic, Islamophobic, megalomaniac warmonger. He shares much with Germany's Adolf Hitler, both in beliefs and in his rise to power. The majority of Americans voted for a woman who promised peace, understanding, and love for mother earth. It was the few who installed this American fuhrer. I weep for America.
  4. Greetings friends, It is very sad to see President Obama, America's greatest president, have to leave office. Eight years simply was not sufficient time for him to turn the United States into the greatest nation on earth. The many actions that he has taken have pushed us towards being equal with much of the world, but there is still so much to be done. I am pleased to see that President Obama has not only signed into law new regulations restricting coal mining near water sources, but also to enact a permanent ban on new off shore oil and gas drilling in the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. This is a great step forward in combating carbon emissions and man-made global warming. As I said, it is sad to see President Obama leave office and even more devastating to think that a rube such as Trump could possibly be installed as president. The 99% people spoke and voted for Hillary Clinton, but the 1% who control us selected Trump. It is a very sad time for American democracy. It seems that democracy died with this election. I hope everyone will have happy winter holiday celebrations! Peace.
  5. Greetings friends, I am very disappointed with our lack of progress in the war against man-made global warming. The American people are still complacent and far too willing to turn our atmosphere into a carbon dumping ground. As a result of our indifference to polluting mother Earth's atmosphere, we get to enjoy such things as record breaking heat, the Zika virus, and now hurricane Matthew. Yes, all of these things are caused by man-made global warming. I am not just saying this, there is irrefutable proof! Please, read the articles at the links I am providing. Hottest August on record. And this article has a wonderful, animated graph depicting the ever rising temperatures of the past 136 years. http://www.climatecentral.org/news/august-ties-july-as-hottest-month-on-record-20691 The spread of the Zika virus is linked to global warming. http://www.climatecentral.org/news/scientists-tease-out-climate-role-zika-spread-20582 Hurricane Matthew, super storm Sandy, and a future of even more powerful storms all due to man-made global warming. https://thinkprogress.org/global-warming-hurricanes-1c3a1ddca521#.uqb7w8u8e We must stop man-made global warming! Demand the immediate halt to coal mining and oil and gas drilling as well as the consumption of those fuels. Switch to clean and sustainable wind and solar power. Get rid of personal vehicles that burn diesel or gasoline and switch to electrically powered vehicles. Better yet, use only public transportation, walk, or ride a bicycle! Stop eating meat and eat a health diet of fruits and vegetables. Animals raised for human consumption are filling our atmosphere with carbon dioxide, a highly toxic greenhouse gas. Finally, it is time to control the human population. We have over-populated the world. The Chinese should be our example. In China, couples are allowed to have only two children. This keeps their population at a constant number. They are not outgrowing their environment. We need to adopt the same strategy and halt our population explosion. Friends, together we are stronger and we can conquer man-made global warming! Peace.
  6. Greetings friends, Although many nations, including the United States, have signed an agreement to limit global warming to 1.5*C, we are already dangerously close to that limit. Global temperatures for the first four months of 2016 have risen 1.45*C over the average for the same months in the pre-industrial era. Furthermore, 2016 is projected to be the hottest in recorded history! http://www.climatecentral.org/news/99-percent-chance-2016-hottest-year-20359 The time remaining to save Mother Earth is rapidly expiring. We must act now and reduce greenhouse gas limits far more that the amounts currently set by treaties and regulations. It may hurt a little now, but if we do not halt the burning of fossil fuels and the raising of animals as a food source, it will destroy us in the future. Please join me in the efforts to save Mother Earth. Do not be a denier. Think globally and act locally. Peace.
  7. Although that is somewhat humorous, the use of human feces as a source of fertilizer is not a particularly good idea. What is a good idea is today's signing of the Paris Climate Accord by 175 nations. This agreement is a historic step towards returning the earth to a more pristine state. We simply cannot allow the earth to continue to suffer from man-made global warming. Today, we take a major step in reversing the process! http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2016/04/22/paris-climate-agreement-signing-united-nations-new-york/83381218/
  8. Greetings friends, Today, April 22, is Earth Day! A day to not only celebrate, but to increase our efforts to revive and protect our planet. I invite you to join me in the effort to save Mother Earth from the destruction wrought upon her by man. There are so many things each of us can do. Plant trees, pick up trash, turn off lights, appliances, furnaces, and air conditioners maybe even trade in a gas-guzzling car for an electric car or, better yet, a bicycle! Together, we can make a difference. Peace. http://www.earthday.org/
  9. Greetings friends, Once again we are presented with irrefutable evidence of man-made global warming. A hurricane has formed in the North Atlantic Ocean. Hurricanes form when ocean water and air are exceptionally warm. Hurricanes should never form in the North Atlantic as the polar ice should keep those waters cold. But with the melting polar ice caps, the waters of the North Atlantic Ocean have warmed enough that hurricanes can now form. This is more proof of man-made global warming. How much more evidence will have to be presented before the world realizes that Al Gore was correct? The agreements achieved in the latest global warming summit are simply insufficient. We need to immediately cease using fossil fuels! If we do not drastically alter our lifestyles immediately we will destroy mother earth. This planet is our only home and without her, we perish. Please, join me in a global green revolution. Peace.

    Thursday

    Greetings friends, I see that you are aware of the extreme changes in our climate. In one week we go from excessively hot temperatures to extremely cold temperatures. Record breaking droughts and floods, tornadoes, tropical storms and hurricanes. These are the symptoms of man-made global warming. A climate in crisis. There is no need for further discussion. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released the results of this year's temperatures to date and the report is highly disturbing. It is no longer a gradual increase in global warming, but now is a massive increase in average temperatures. 2015 is now recorded as being the hottest in history. There was a great article in the Huffington Post regarding this massive jump in temperatures and I encourage you to read it carefully. Here is a link to the article. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/summer-2015-hottest_55fae2bfe4b0fde8b0cd408e If you are unwilling to read the story or perhaps the link does not work for you, all you really need to see is this graphic representation of 2015's temperatures compared to the previous records. The science is settled and there is no time for further debate. Contact your congressperson, your senators, and the White House and tell them to take action now! Stop tax credits and tax rebates for polluters such as oil, coal, and nuclear power plants. Shut down the oil and natural gas drilling operations and refineries. Build wind turbines and solar power plants and we can look forward to a more stable, more beautiful, and healthier mother Earth. Peace.
  11. Greetings friends, Today I am very sorry to bring you bad news. I have warned against the dangers of man-made global warming. Vice President Al Gore has toured the world and given countless lectures on man-made global warming, yet the warnings have gone largely unheeded. The global warming deniers have had their day, claiming increasing polar ice and lower temperatures, but they are in for a sad awakening. New data shows that the arctic ice started melting far earlier this year than in any year in history. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has warned that the arctic ice will completely disappear by 2040. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/may/05/arctic-ice-retreat-scientists-climate-change And if that was not sufficient proof to make you understand and realize that man-made global warming is real, it is here, and it is destroying our planet, there is now a tropical cyclone developing off of the coast of South Carolina. Tropical cyclones can only develop over very warm ocean waters. Never before has an Atlantic tropical cyclone developed this early in the season nor this far north! The ocean waters are extremely warm and the temperatures have risen to very dangerous levels. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATWOAT+shtml/071144_MIATWOAT.shtml It is time that we come to the realization that we, the human race, are doomed to extinction and it is our own fault. Before it is too late, take steps to halt man-made global warming. Demand the immediate cessation of the use of fossil fuels. Only use electricity that is generated by wind and solar power. Stop eating meat as animals raised for consumption as food contribute a large portion of the greenhouse gases that are causing global warming. We can live happy and healthy lives by eating only legumes, grains, fruits and vegetables. We can live comfortably without heating or air conditioning systems. And we can certainly live healthier lives by giving up our cars that belch and blow toxic gases into our atmosphere and start walking or bicycling to our destinations. Time is fast running out, take action now. Think globally and act locally. Peace.

    Hump Day

    Greetings and happy Earth Day! Yes, and not only is today Earth Day, but it is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day! This is so exciting! Now I see that "Donster" has already posted some sarcastic humor regarding Earth Day and our responsibilities as citizens of the world, but I assure you that I find no humor in such sarcasm. Saving our planet is far too important for such things. We must all share the responsibility and the burden for restoring our climate. There are many things that each of us can do and every little effort can culminate in a cleaner and greener Earth. Remember to think globally and act locally. Peace.
  13. Greetings friends, For quite some time I and many, many others have tried to warn everyone of the disastrous effects of man-made global warming. Those warnings have gone largely unheeded. As a result, the great state of California has been forced to institute mandatory water restrictions. The Sierra-Nevada mountains are now largely devoid of snow. Normally, they would be covered with snow that would slowly melt and feed the streams and rivers of California. Due to our refusal to recognize the rapidly increasing temperatures around our planet, there is no snow and there is no rain. California is just the first, it is a microcosm of what awaits the entire world. California's mandatory water restrictions must be the template by which all communities around the world use water. We must conserve our water supply now or face a massive death rate of all plants and animals. We must cease to emit carbon emissions immediately, to do otherwise will doom our planet to becoming an inferno in which there will be no water, a very poor atmosphere, and no life. Please, think globally and act locally to stop man-made global warming. Peace.
  14. Greetings friends, You can, no doubt, see that our weather operates at extreme ends of the spectrum. We seem to go from insanely frigid to unnaturally hot weather and without a transition period. This is an irrefutable sign of global warming. I still encourage all of you to think globally and act locally. Our elected government has failed us, but thankfully we have a president who is a man of action and agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency which are stepping up to the challenge of stopping and reversing man-made global warming. You can lend aid to the effort by trading in your fossil fuel burning vehicles for energy efficient hybrid and electric vehicles or by using public transportation. Convert heating and cooling systems to solar, wind and geothermal power and use energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs. Together, we can make a difference. Peace.

    Great news!

    Greetings friends, Great news from our president! While catching up on my reading, I found this article on the Daily Kos website. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/08/27/1324888/-Obama-pursuing-major-climate-accord-in-lieu-of-treaty-to-bypass-need-for-Senate-ratification President Barack Obama will finally take action on global warming. President Obama has been hindered for far too long by a congress that was elected by wealthy donors such as coal and oil companies. Our president has finally seen the light and a path to halting man-made global warming. Next month, at the 21st Conference of the Parties on Climate Change in Paris, President Obama will sign a binding, universal agreement on climate change. President Obama does not need the consent of congress in order to sign and enforce international binding agreements. This do-nothing, voting bought by the highest bidder body of elected imbeciles cannot stop him and once the agreement is signed, they must abide by it. The government will finally have the power to enforce universal carbon emission reduction rules and help to finance poorer nations in their conversion to green energy. We have had more than ample time to voluntarily embrace green energy, now the United Nations will enforce green energy policies and finally bring to the world a clean and healthy environment. This is truly great news and I am confident that President Obama will soon solve the pressing domestic issues of immigration and the banning of guns. My friends, we are entering the greatest era in the history of this nation and we are being led by the greatest president this nation will ever see. It would be fantastic and a benefit to all mankind if President Obama were given the opportunity to continue as our president well beyond 2016. Peace.
