What warming climate will flood

Folks who go gaw gaw at the prospect of a summer weekend at, say, Rehoboth Beach or Assateague Island, or any one of hundreds of other coastal spots will be out of luck before not too long. But their descendants will find things even wetter. Planning a trip to Miami Beach, Fla.? Better go now as it is among the places that will someday be inundated due to rising sea levels. Take a look at these maps.

The idiots who don’t believe global warming, or climate change, or any other slice of science

Let the coal burn! And China and India are doing just that

Amazing the amount of press time/coverage a lousy rock, aka “coal,” gets around the world.

In any case, humanity can expect more extreme weather as we alter our planet’s climate. And let’s remember this: Earth is the only planet we have to live on. The headline above goes over this article.

The Mitt is already a sure winner – for chief rocket scientist of the year. Hah. Learn about the candidate’s climate-change beliefs and changing beliefs and more.

The 10-year forecast: Drought

That’s the NY Times’s headline over this article. Here in Williston, Vt., it just rained again, another half-inch at least, with lightning and thunder accompaniment. But I can believe the climate forecast calls for drought. I once lived in Oklahoma. And before that in Texas. Both have been hit hard lately by drought.

Just how much more evidence does Congress and the world need before taking action to stem climate change, or even just delay the tipping point? Don’t look for anything other than business as usual from the friends of Big Oil.
