While hurricanes struck, Scott Pruitt was up to some interesting activities


While hurricanes struck, Scott Pruitt was up to some interesting activities: Scott Pruitt is literally Satan. Contrast his actions with former (bipartisan) administrators and you see the truth. He is an industry tool meant to dismantle the hollowed out…

Below are the records Hurricane Irma has already broken as of this morning:

  • Irma is the first storm in recorded history that has maintained top winds of 185 miles per hour for 37 straight hours.
  • Irma is the strongest storm on record to exist in the Atlantic, outside of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. 
  • Irma is tied with the 1932 Cuba hurricane for the longest time spent as a Category 5 hurricane.
  • Irma has the lowest minimum pressure in its lifetime of an Atlantic hurricane on record, outside of the western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.
  • Irma generated more Accumulated Cyclone Energy than the first eight named storms of the current Atlantic hurricane season combined.

Just to name a few… more here.

Say what you will about climate change (I mean, it’s 110% real) but you’d be naive to think the effects of Harvey weren’t exacerbated by it (think: rising sea levels, warmer temps, higher frequency of natural disasters). Harvey isn’t a one-off; we need to be prepared for what’s coming next…

The Weather Channel is throwing major shade and I am here for it. 

Their homepage include articles titled: “So What Happens to Earth Now?“ “Still Don’t Care? Proof You Should”

“..and More Proof…”

“…and Even More Proof…”

“…Or the Imminent Collapse of a Key Ice Shelf…:”

“… Or Antarctica Turning Green…”

“… Or California’s Coast Disappearing into the Sea…”

It is as was feared. President Trump has withdrawn the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement. This is momentous. It is ominous. And it throws the future health of the planet into grave doubt. 

Some who are knowledgeable on this topic think the damage could be minimized by a renewed effort by the rest of the world, and action here at the state and local level as well as in the private sector. Others fear this could be a death knell for our global environment, as countries will shirk their responsibilities and the Paris deal will unravel. History will tell.

But whatever happens, this was a reckless and intemperate action. It is not based on science or reason. And it will not strengthen the United States. 

How will President Trump argue for his actions? Who really cares? The world is watching, future generations wait in judgement, and we have shirked our moral responsibility as a member of the world community. 

We can only hope that when we look back at this, it is seen as a nadir on our path back to sanity. Will this awaken voters, business interests, and reasonable politicians? We can only hope and vow to do our part.
