Shocker. New Documents Show the trump Administration Cut Climate Change Impacts from its Energy Plan
JACKIE FLYNN MOGENSENSEP. 5, 2018
Thus far, the Trump administration has seemed to make it a point to ignore the very real threat of global warming in its policy and unabashedly censor climate science on government websites, reports, and speeches. It should come as a shock to no one, then, that the administration’s recent rollback of the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, has been no different—and gives even more cause for alarm among environmentalists.

An EPA Guard Just Literally Shoved a Reporter Out of the Building
REBECCA LEBERMAY. 22, 2018

Now, the summit has become a center of a new controversy. The Associated Press, CNN, and E&E News were barred from covering Pruitt’s speech on Tuesday. More

trump Cancels NASA Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Program
Pakalolo  Community  May 10, 2018
More insanity from the Trump administration. Europe will now become the leader in international carbon monitoring. Phil Duffy, president of the Woods Hole Research Center in Massachusetts, told Science, “we really shoot ourselves in the foot if we let other people develop the technology,”.
This comes less then a month after a Climate Change denier took over NASA. More

Stop trump's Pork Rule
Trump’s Pork Rule privatizes the job duties of USDA inspectors and gives their work to untrained plant workers.

Senators Rebuke EPA Plan To Let Kids Handle Pesticides Again

FEMA’s Plan for Dealing With Natural Disasters Is Missing the Two Most Important Words
JACKIE FLYNN MOGENSEN MAR. 15, 2018
After a year of record-setting storms, the report only vaguely mentions “increasingly complex” natural hazards. In its first strategic plan following a tragic string of natural disasters—Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, the fires that ravaged California, and record-setting East Coast winter storms—the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) boldly dodged the issue of climate change and the growing risk of these sorts of catastrophes.

America’s Newest Weather Satellite Is a Game-Changer for Forecasting Catastrophic Natural Events
ROBBIE GONZALEZMAR. 3
“The future of forecasting” left from Cape Canaveral last week.
It could be a sign of things to come: Climate models project that rising CO2 levels will stoke more violent tempests, fires, and floods. Fortunately, confronted by the planet’s increasingly crazypants forecast, scientists have developed an arsenal of tools for observing, understanding, and anticipating severe weather. More

'We might not recover': Neil deGrasse Tyson gets emotional and sounds the alarm. All the alarms.
By Jen Hayden Wednesday Sep 20, 2017
TYSON:  … Right. The longer we delay, the more--I worry we might not be able to recover from this because our greatest cities are on the oceans and water's edges historically for commerce and transportation and as storms kick in, as water levels rise they are the first to go and we don't have a system, we don't have a civilization with the capacity to pick up a city and move it inland 20 miles.

What kind of future do we want to leave for our children?
By Mark E Andersen  Sep 18, 2016
I look at the world we live in today and I see our society at a crossroads. In one direction we have Trump—a road paved with hatred and intolerance, a road that will take us to the dystopian future described in Player Piano. The other road is not perfect, but leads to a future that while not quite as idealistic and utopian as Star Trek will at least take us to a place where we can continue to work for equality, peace, and tolerance. Maybe the innocent childhood vision I had, the utopian future that Star Trek presented to me, will come true someday. For my son’s sake—and for the future of humanity—I hope that is the road we choose to go down. More

Hiroshima Apology Tour Dan Evon 5/29/16
While President Obama offered his sympathies, he did not apologize for the U.S. 1945 actions (click for the facts)
Why do we come to this place, to Hiroshima? We come to ponder a terrible force unleashed in a not-so-distant past. We come to mourn the dead, including over 100,000 Japanese men, women and children, thousands of Koreans, a dozen Americans held prisoner.
Their souls speak to us. They ask us to look inward, to take stock of who we are and what we might become.
