    US intel chief issues warning about climate change
    "The impacts of the long-term trends toward a warming climate, more air pollution, biodiversity loss, and water scarcity are likely to fuel economic and social discontent—and possibly upheaval—through 2018," said Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence.

    "The past 115 years have been the warmest period in the history of modern civilization, and the past few years have been the warmest years on record," Coats said in prepared remarks to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    The intelligence chief did not directly attribute global warming to human activity in his annual Worldwide Threat Assessment report, but he starkly outlined the dangers of climate change.

    "Extreme weather events in a warmer world have the potential for greater impacts and can compound with other drivers to raise the risk of humanitarian disasters, conflict, water and food shortages, population migration, labor shortfalls, price shocks, and power outages," he said.

    "Domestic policy responses to such issues will become more difficult—especially for democracies—as publics become less trusting of authoritative information sources," he added.

    Trump once derided global warming as a "hoax" and withdrew the United States from the Paris climate change agreement upon taking office.

    The US leader cast doubt on the veracity of global warming science as recently as December 28.

    "In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record," Trump tweeted.

    "Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against."
    Yeah, that was last year. Here's last month...

    Climate Change in the American Mind: December 2018
    • Seven in ten Americans (73%) think global warming is happening, an increase of ten percentage points since March 2015. Only about one in seven Americans (14%) think global warming is not happening. Americans who think global warming is happening outnumber those who think it isn’t by more than a 5 to 1 ratio.
    • Americans are also increasingly certain that global warming is happening – 51% are “extremely” or “very” sure it is happening, an increase of 14 percentage points since March 2015, matching the highest level since 2008. By contrast, far fewer – 7% – are “extremely” or “very sure” global warming is not happening.
    • About six in ten Americans (62%) understand that global warming is mostly human-caused. By contrast, about one in four (23%) say it is due mostly to natural changes in the environment.
    • More than half of Americans (57%) understand that most scientists agree that global warming is happening, the highest level since 2008. However, only one in five (20%) understand how strong the level of consensus among scientists is (i.e., that more than 90% of climate scientists have concluded that human-caused global warming is happening).
    • About seven in ten Americans (69%) say they are at least “somewhat worried” about global warming. About three in ten (29%) are “very worried” about it – the highest level since our surveys began in 2008.
    • About seven in ten Americans are “interested” in global warming (69%). Majorities also feel “disgusted” (53%) and/or “helpless” (51%). Nearly half are “hopeful” (48%).
    • Few Americans think it’s too late to do anything about global warming (14%).
    • Nearly half of Americans (46%) say they have personally experienced the effects of global warming, an increase of 15 percentage points since March 2015.
    • Nearly half of Americans (48%) think people in the United States are being harmed by global warming “right now.” The proportion who believe people are being harmed “right now” has increased by 16 percentage points since March 2015 and by nine points since our previous survey in March 2018.
    • About half or more Americans think they (49%), their family (56%), and/or people in their community (57%) will be harmed by global warming. Even more think global warming will harm people in the U.S. (65%), the world’s poor (67%), people in developing countries (68%), plant and animal species (74%), and/or future generations of people (75%).
    • About seven in ten Americans (72%) say the issue of global warming is either “extremely,” “very,” or “somewhat” important to them personally, while only about three in ten (28%) say it is either “not too” or “not at all” personally important. The proportion who say it is personally important has increased by 16 percentage points since March 2015, and by nine points since our previous survey in March 2018.
    • About four in ten Americans (41%) say they discuss global warming with family and friends “often” or “occasionally,” an increase of 15 percentage points since March 2015. However, more say they “rarely” or “never” discuss it (59%), although this reflects a 15-point decrease since March 2015.
    • More than half of Americans (56%) say they hear about global warming in the media at least once a month, an increase of 13 percentage points since our previous survey in March 2018.
    • Fewer than half of Americans perceive a social norm in which their friends and family expect them to take action on global warming. Forty-six percent think it is at least moderately important to their family and friends that they take action (an injunctive norm), and four in ten (40%) say their family and friends make at least a moderate effort to reduce global warming (a descriptive norm).
    • About two in three Americans (65%) think global warming is affecting weather in the United States, and three in ten think weather is being affected “a lot” (32%). About half think global warming made the 2018 wildfires in the Western U.S. (50%) and/or hurricanes Florence and Michael (49%) worse.
    • A majority of Americans are worried about harm from extreme events in their local area including extreme heat (61%), flooding (61%), droughts (58%), and/or water shortages (51%).

    Ocasio-Cortez says we have 12 years before Armageddon. There’s no way we can solve the fictitious warming problem in 12 years.... We’re all going to die... Maybe I’ll take a overdose of Fentanyl smuggled across the southern border. I certainly don’t want to die from global warming spontaneous combustion...

    Australia's Heat Wave Is Taking A Toll On People, Animals, Infrastructure And LandJanuary 25, 2019


    It's summertime in Australia, and the country is in the throes of a record-breaking heat wave that has brought suffering to humans, animals and land.

    Temperatures in the south have soared past 118 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Australia's State Emergency Service declared the heat wave a threat to public safety, as an increasing number of Australians have called ambulances and gone to hospitals in Adelaide for heat-associated illnesses.

    The Australian Energy Market Operator cut power to 200,000 people in the southern state of Victoria after demand increased for air-conditioning.

    The Australian Open even suspended tennis championship matches in Melbourne, as the Twitter feed of Australia's Bureau of Meteorology became a stream of all-time-high temperature reports and fire advisories.

    Scientists feared strong gusts of wind and dry lightning strikes would spark blazes. More than 50 fires have broken out across Tasmania and at least two homes were reported gone, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. A raging bushfire threatened Victoria's East Gippsland.

    "People are trying to soldier on," Elizabeth Hanna, a researcher with Australian National University's Climate Change Institute, tells NPR. "The federal government we have at the moment is being led by a few climate [change] deniers," she says, adding that Prime Minister Scott Morrison infuriated Australians when he said "that we should pray for rain."

    Australia was one of the first countries in the world to have a carbon tax, "but when we had a change of government, they reversed that and of course our emissions started increasing," Hanna said.
    maybe they should get out their rakes.
