    Iowa teacher who posted 'sniper rifle' comment about climate activist's visit resigns


    Matt Baish, a science teacher at Waterloo West High School, had been placed on administrative leave after posting "Dont have my sniper rifle" Oct. 3 on an article shared from Little Village Magazine about Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish girl who has spoken out about climate change.

    Stick to regurgitating other people's thoughts. When you step out on your own you fall flat on your face.

    1 minute into her diatribe she claims it’s a mute point, yet she kept on blathering.

    doesnt say that's why she was fired. and has nothing to do with the 97% statistic, which isn't based on polling a bunch of scientists, but rather, a review of published research on the subject

    Innuendo over substance. It's the right wing playbook.

    Dinosaurs became extinct from the same horrifying conditions plaguing our oceans

    “We could very easily have something more extreme … so this should be something that is yes, horrifying to us.”

    the first direct evidence that the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction was caused in part by a decrease in the oceans' pH levels.

    This likely happened because the asteroid impact led to sulfur-rich rocks creating acid rain, which went into the ocean and disrupted its ecosystem.

    What is alarming is that acidification is currently happening in the planet’s oceans today,

    even without an asteroid to disrupt the environment because of carbon dioxide emissions.

    According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (
    NOAA),

    over the last 200 years — since the industrial revolution — the pH of the ocean surface has fallen by 0.1 pH units.

    Based on the current rate of carbon dioxide levels,

    evidence suggest that the ocean could be 150 percent more acidic by the end of the century,

    according to NOAA, “resulting in a pH that the oceans haven’t experienced for more than 20 million years.”


    Planavsky said the latest evidence from the study gives us insight into what will be happening in the future if carbon emissions continue to rise.

    The short-term event destabilized and altered the structure of ecosystems for millions of years, so this should be something that is yes, horrifying to us.

    Wonderfully, predatory, avaricious Capitalism and Capitalists don't GAF about long term anything, only short-term wealth ac ulation.

    U.S. Military Could Collapse Within 20 Years Due to Climate Change, Report Commissioned By Pentagon Says

    The report says a combination of

    global starvation,
    war,
    disease,
    drought, and
    a fragile power grid

    could have cascading, devastating effects.

    .... FUD? from the biggest USA polluter who created dozen of taxpayer-financed SuperFund sites?

    oligarchy buying govt policy to protect/increase its profits

    Secret Deal Helped Housing Industry Stop Tougher Rules on Climate Change


    A secret agreement has allowed the nation’s

    homebuilders to
    make it much easier to block changes to building codes that would require new houses to better address climate change

    The written arrangement, in place for years and not previously disclosed,

    guarantees industry representatives four of the 11 voting seats on two powerful committee
    s

    that approve building codes that are widely adopted nationwide.

    The pact h
    as helped enable the trade group that controls the seats,

    the
    National Association of Home Builders,

    to prevent changes that

    would have made new houses in much of the country more energy-efficient or

    more resilient to floods, hurricanes and other disasters.

    Oligarchy protects itself while ing over citizens and the environment.

    We are heading for a New Cretaceous, not for a new normal

    A lazy buzz phrase – ‘Is this the new normal?’ – has been doing the rounds as extreme climate events have been piling up over the past year.

    To which the riposte should be:

    it’s worse than that – we’re on the road to even more frequent, more extreme events than we saw this year.

    We have known since the 1980s what’s in store for us.

    But nothing was done, and the welter of climate data mounting since then only confirms and refines the original predictions.

    the Cretaceous ... was also very warm, with global temperatures 3-10°C
    hotter than preindustrial levels.

    in a Cretaceous rerun, there would very likely be no ice at the poles once again, and

    sea levels would be about 216 feet (66 metres) above current levels.

    We would also see the creation of vast warm shallow seas with mineral deposits similar to those that
    produced 1,300 ft (400 metre)-thick chalk strata in the old Cretaceous;

    while, in place of the larger mammals that would become extinct, reptiles might radiate across the globe and grow large in form – a fitting dinosaur revenge?

    In 2010, researchers
    showed that

    our species cannot survive for more than six hours at what’s called a ‘wet bulb’ temperature of 35°C (95°F).

    Wet bulb here means 100 per cent humidity, so it’s not 35°C as we know it.

    But in the great Indian agricultural belts of the Indus and Ganges, high-40s temperatures combined with 50 per cent humidity (which equates to that wet-bulb temperature of 35°C ) are going to
    prevail within decades.

    most-likely temperature-rise prediction of 3°C would see forests growing in the Arctic, and

    entail the loss of most coastal cities through irreversible sea-level rise by the end of the century.

    A lesson for today is that such a sudden and lasting change to the climate has consequences lasting thousands of years.

    https://aeon.co/ideas/we-are-heading-for-a-new-cretaceous-not-for-a-new-normal?utm_source=Aeon+Newsletter&utm_campaign=8c2 9b26d26-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_10_28_12_53&utm_medium=email&u tm_term=0_411a82e59d-8c29b26d26-70695677

    and still, nothing is being done, except,eg, the American oligarchy, through its govt control, making climate catastrophe arrive quicker
