Note in the above the shocking rise in CO2 emissions since 1990 ie from 22 to 36 Gt a year.
One of the most repulsive and revealing images I’ve seen is donald trump acting the clown in his miners hat. Note the vetted audience behind him, that strangely seem so disinterested, out of step with proceedings as if not listening. He knows fine well climate change is on the way, building/ reinforcing the already existing wall to stop mass migration from the south, massive tax handbacks to the filthy rich for whats ahead, installing arch-denier Pruitt, ramping up the military, disowning the poor and the ordinary.
Another angle … telling us that fracking leaks huge amounts of methane (20-120 times more powerful than CO2 for climate change acceleration) … http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/carbon-emissions-flat_us_59ee1580e4b0958c4683a105
Here Pruitt ensures Industry controls Climate Boards at the EPA, lots of back slapping there !! They’ve won their cake and can eat it !! http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/epa-advisory-boards_us_59f8d140e4b046017faf692b
Looking at the median curve to my mind 2018 looks set to be a worse year for climate events than 2017 which on the curve was a significant dip from the upward trend of climate warming.
Heres a quote from the start of that last article AND IT UTTERLY STINKS …
The Environmental Protection Agency has banned scientists who receive funding from the agency from serving on its scientific advisory boards, in an unprecedented move that critics say gives favor to industry-friendly advisers.
At a Tuesday afternoon event rolling out the new policy, Administrator Scott Pruitt invoked a biblical tale from the book of Joshua, in which the pagans are instructed to “choose this day whom you will serve,” either God or the “gods of your fathers.”
“As it relates to grants from this agency, you’re going to have to choose,” said Pruitt, who described the new rule as a way of ensuring “there’s integrity in the process and that the scientists that are advising us are doing so without any kind of appearance of conflict.”
STINKS …. STINKS …. STINKS ….
