Gov. Jay Inslee: "I made this decision.

I decided on my death bed, I wanted to be able to look at my 3 grandkids in the eye and tell them that I did everything humanly possible to rescue them from the monster of climate change." http://hill.cm/6Gq3nxS

I hope you'll get well embalmed, decomp produces methane a greenhouse gas.

Pompeo: Melting sea ice presents 'new opportunities for trade'

 

........"Arctic sea lanes could become the 21st century Suez and Panama Canals," Pompeo remarked.

According to the US Global Change Research Program, the loss of sea ice leads to warmer global water temperatures, which in return lead to greater sea ice melting. They also note that "the loss of ice increases the risk of erosion along coastlines and changes the presence of marine species in certain areas, affecting commercial fish stocks and the economies of some coastal towns."...........

US climate objections sink Arctic Council accord in Finland

......Scientists and environmental groups warn that the retreat of Arctic sea ice threatens polar bears and marine species, but also contributes to rising sea levels, adding to the risk of coastal flooding.

They also warn of a major pollution risk if energy and transport firms find it easier to exploit the pristine Arctic wilderness.

The Arctic Council consists of the United States, Canada, Russia, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Iceland. It meets every two years to address economic and environmental challenges in the Arctic.

Sources at the forum told Reuters news agency that the US shunned the joint statement because of wording stating that climate change posed a serious threat to the Arctic......

to highlight the peril of climate change then let the democrat 2020 convention be held in Antarctica preferably on a melting ice shelf with lots of penguins. hey, maybe the democrat delegates can each adopt a penguin.

:lol:

1 Million Animal And Plant Species Are At Risk Of Extinction, U.N. Report Says

......."The health of ecosystems on which we and all other species depend is deteriorating more rapidly than ever," Watson says. He emphasizes that business and financial concerns are also threatened. "We are eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide," he says.

The report lists a number of key global threats, from humans' use of land and sea resources to challenges posed by climate change, pollution and invasive species.....

experts portrayed humans as both the cause of the threat and a target of its risks. As humanity demands ever more food, energy, housing and other resources, they say, it's also undermining its own food security and long-term prospects. .........

Wonder how the Earth faired every 100,000 years before all powerful man came along?  Global temperatures are not high as they were 150,000 years ago.

Hey don'tcha know  according to the "God Equation" the Earth is only 6,000 years old? The charts are fake news, get with the propaganda.

What is a "day" to God that exist in eternity? :unsure:

His day = 1 billion...makes sense.

This is what Saint Augustine had to say of some of the really literal interpretations of Genesis-

"It not infrequently happens that something about the earth, about the sky, about other elements of this world, about the motion and rotation or even the magnitude and distances of the stars, about definite eclipses of the sun and moon, about the passage of years and seasons, about the nature of animals, of fruits, of stones, and of other such things, may be known with the greatest certainty by reasoning or by experience, even by one who is not a Christian.

It is too disgraceful and ruinous, though, and greatly to be avoided, that he [the non-Christian] should hear a Christian speaking so idiotically on these matters, and as if in accord with Christian writings, that he might say that he could scarcely keep from laughing when he saw how totally in error they are.

In view of this and in keeping it in mind constantly while dealing with the book of Genesis, I have, insofar as I was able, explained in detail and set forth for consideration the meanings of obscure passages, taking care not to affirm rashly some one meaning to the prejudice of another and perhaps better explanation."

In the book, Augustine took the view that everything in the universe was created simultaneously by God, and not in seven days like a plain account of Genesis would require. He argues that the six-day structure of creation presented in the book of Genesis represents a logical framework, rather than the passage of time in a physical way.

It reminds me of articles written by physicists where they go into great detail and at length explaining how Superman's physiology works in relation to the natural forces of the universe when using his super-powers. Or engineering grads who detail the workings of the Starship Enterprise.

The theologians try to uphold the literal Bible until the science becomes too much for

them to ignore. Then they make up all kinds of excuses for why the literal interpretation

isn't quite true and, well what do you know, it really doesn't matter anymore anyway.

And scientist keeps contradicting themselves.

 

Dark matter may not actually exist – and our alternative theory can be put to the test

https://phys.org/news/2019-01-dark-alternative-theory.html

 

 

And the time supermassive black holes take to form would be older than the universe.  Try to explain...new theory, supermassive black holes came from huge collection of gas, bypassing the star phase altogether.

the bible is not written in chronological order so for centuries theologians have misrepresented the genesis account of the creation of the earth when it is not...

I will explain...

the war in heaven between God and lucifer and the rebelling angels tore asunder what existed at that time including the earth...what is being described in genesis is actually a restoration primarily of the earth's surface...

the genesis creation account is not the original creation event...

there is a line in Genesis where the word 'replenish' is used which does not reconcile with an original creation event but does fit with a restoration event...

the earth was not created formless and void with darkness upon the face of it's deep...

for one of the psalms contains...

"For on the day that God created the earth,

the angels in Heaven shouted for joy for it was exceedingly beautiful."

War easy to win if the losing side is outnumbered 2 to 1. :)

Loved to seen THOSE weapons! :D

Got to thinking about "Star Trek Voyager - The Q and The Grey" regarding the Q War.  The "guns"(and everything else) were symbolic, could destroy stars and solar systems.

It's fine and dandy some of you talking about "stewards" and an "exceedingly beautiful" earth, and care not a bit that the Orange Disgrace in the WH is the worst steward ever over protecting this planet, and he and his rapacious administration only view climate change as a way to maximize profit.  Nothi g is being done but allowing attempts at meaningful mitigation to be shot down due to the U.S. objection.  Disgraceful, and no amount of pointing to natural oscillations in the earth's average temperature over millennia changes the fact that the current changes are man-made and worsening through inaction and willful ignorance.

It's hilarious when people attending climate change rallies  has to DRIVE to the event.  Their own actions are putting extra CO2 into the very air they're concerned about.

The U.N. Report on Extinction vs. Mike Pompeo at the Arctic Council

....... Humans have destroyed many of the habitats on which the rest of nature depends and caused the temperature of the earth to rise; as a result, “around 1 million species already face extinction, many within decades, unless action is taken.” The report serves as a kind of pre-obituary for all of the creatures now on the way out—the current global rate of extinction is estimated as “already at least tens to hundreds of times higher than it has averaged over the past 10 million years.” ......

Pompeo: “Steady reductions in sea ice are opening new passageways and new opportunities for trade. This could potentially slash the time it takes to travel between Asia and the West by as much as twenty days.”

That is to say, the fact that one of the world’s largest physical features is in chaotic flux is, in fact, good news, because we’ll soon be able to ship stuff from China three weeks faster. .....

 

far more human beings worry about Arctic melt than celebrate it; far more human beings tremble at the news of mass extinction than shrug. Those people don’t, for the most part, hold political power. But perhaps it is still possible to rally them in numbers large enough to shake our leaders, to renew and extend the Zeitgeist that seemed to be taking hold when the Endangered Species Act was first signed. .........
