Man has over extended that valued resource in his folly believing he could "green the desert" in the long term without researching the geological past.  There's only so much river.

 

What do you think created those canyons over hundreds of thousands of years?  Persistent water flow.

Now.  bu-bye

 By “Stupid’s Administration” you must mean Donald Trump!! He gave you nothing but the chance of getting food poisoning, dysentery, skin cancer, COVID-19, etc. in his free-wheeling deregulation frenzy of all the safeguards for Americans.  Unless, you are a multi-millionaire or billionaire, in which case he gave you huuuuge tax cuts.  Oh, I forget, he gave you the opportunity to be open about your racist hatreds, which as the commercial says, you find to be priceless!!   So who’s the stupid one here!?!?

Science Deniers!!!  There are daily news reports about the devastating effects of man-made climate change across the globe.  This is a serious issue some of you continue to mock, no matter how cutesy you try to do it!!  Wake up!!

The Vikings called it Greenland for a good reason!

ruins-of-the-church-hvalsey-a-norse-viki

Greenland was named such by the Norse in the HOPE it would attract more settlers from their bases on Iceland.  They hoped the term would prove a draw compared to the volcanic landscape of Iceland. 
 

Additionally the Vikings had settled on the southern coastal areas, places that turn green with the thawing as summer approaches.  The above article mentions areas in  northern  and inland Greenland, AND at high altitudes, that have never seen this before.  So AGAIN, you try a dishonest and disingenuous, if cutesy approach to deflect from this serious issue.

If it wasn't for the Little Ice Age which put a temporary halt to glacial retreating / ice cap melting, those would had be GONE before the Industrial Revolution got started.  Heaven knows how hot it would be today!

The Little Ice Age not only doomed the Viking settlements but million across Europe who could no longer grow food.

If nature decide this planet will become a 130 degree hothouse then it will happen.  Fret and pout all you want!

There is an object lesson in "Snowpiercer", mans feeble attempt to control the climate can backfire big time!

The planet was in a cooling phase before man interrupted it.

Up to 95% of Earth's oceans could be hotter, more acidic and less hospitable to life by the end of the century unless carbon emissions are curbed, scientists warn

47139591-0-image-a-44_1630005195126.jpg

NEW A new study warns that if humans do not reduce carbon emission, up to 95% of ocean surfaces will be changed by 2100. They will become hotter, more acidic and less hospitable for sea life.

They're going to spin EVERY hurricane for being the worst.  Ida occurred in August the same month as Katrina by which there is no comparison. Katrina was FAR more powerful and devastating!

The levies made the difference.   Ida was actually more powerful.  But what the heck does that have to do with anything anyway?

When the number and intensity of hurricane are definitely on the increase, due to the waters that spawn them are hotter for longer, then it is logical that climate change is definitely responsible for this.  The Ostrich  in the Coal Mine!!

Hurricane Ida Makes a Mockery of Big Oil’s Philanthropy

During Hurricane Ida, energy companies briefly paused efforts to claim credit for combating the problems they’ve caused.

".........Just weeks before the hurricane, Exxon, which manufactured doubt about climate change for decades despite knowing that its production of fossil fuels was causing the crisis, tweeted about its support for the Paris Agreement. Shell bragged about its support for wind technology, even though the vast majority of the company’s business is still oil and petrochemical production, and it is on track to still be producing 1 million barrels a day in 2050. Chevron pledged to advance a low-carbon future and invest $750 million in renewables and offsets by 2028, while spending far more fighting an attorney who won a judgment against the company over the environmental harm from oil extraction in Ecuador. And Valero boasted about giving away 500 trees near its refinery in Meraux, Louisiana — a plant that has violated the Clean Air Act.

 

“They frame themselves not as a major source of the problem, but instead a key part of the solution.”

Such greenwashing — or perhaps false advertising — is par for the course for big energy companies,.............

Very interesting article if you click on the title.  

Jed Clampett had a similar idea 50 years ago to get rid of the smog in L.A.

World's biggest 'carbon-sucking' machine is switched on in Iceland: $15 million device will capture 4,000 TONS of CO2 per year and could help 'reverse climate change'

The $15 million 'direct air capture' (DAC) machine, created by Zurich-based company Climeworks, launched on Wednesday at the Hellisheiði Power Station, Iceland.

"............a warning on the coast of New Jersey in the miles of Atlantic white cedar trees that have devolved into what researchers call ghost forests. 

It’s a term that points to the visceral changes of the landscape — going from lush green to a pale white — and the destruction of the area’s crucial role as a biodome and coastal buffer.

These once-thriving forests are a direct result of climate change as the trees are suffocated by saltwater intrusion sparked by sea level rise and an uptick of hurricanes and superstorms.  

 

“If we pay close attention to our environment, we often see that it sends us signals,” LaTourette, the state’s commissioner of environmental protection,............

Trees dying from salt water intrusion has been happening for hundreds if not thousands of years.  Known as ghost forest.

True, but there are more of them and more areas are threatened.   Salt water is even reaching further and further into rivers.  This causes problems for areas dependent on those rivers for drinking water.  Desalination is not the answer.
