Apocalypse Saturday

1a

Enjoy a cup of Holiday Gloom while you shop.

In a move environmentalists and journalists denounced as a blatant effort to bury facts that conflict with the president’s denialism and pro-fossil fuel agenda, the Trump administration used the Friday after Thanksgiving to quietly release Volume II of the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA), which warned “Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization” and concluded that “greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are the only factors that can account” for planet-threatening warming.

“The decision to release this damning report when families are beginning to celebrate the holidays and newsrooms are short-staffed is a brazen attempt to bury the truth from the public that we must act now to move off fossil fuels and stabilize the climate,” Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch, said in a statement.

“Releasing this report when no one is looking, tweeting his annual nonsense about global warming and cold weather, and announcing that he’ll use the upcoming U.N. climate meetings as a fossil fuel tradeshow, Trump is doubling down on his climate denial for the holidays—as many families are still reeling from unnatural climate disasters across the country,” Hauter continued. “The science is way past in on climate change… We must prepare for our climate future in spite of Trump.”

    The best idea would have been to leave oil and coal in the ground.

    Then along came money, BIG money whose dollars are already spent.

    Now the air is not fit to breathe, water unsafe to drink, humanity is on the brink.

    Too bad for us.

    I got the small tree for the bay window out and put her there. There’s a color wheel inside the base that turns w/ the heat of the bulb and the little lights on the tree change color.

    I took the bigger one out and set it up at the foot of the basement steps on the piece of furniture we bought for the flat screen TV upstairs when we got it. Perfect for the Xmas tree. That tree does what the upstairs tree does.

    Looks like snow is heading our way. It warmed up here the last couple of days, and it rained, of course. I guess that rain will end up turning into snow, depending on the temperature, I guess.

    I know it rained because of me. Yesterday I cleaned the bay window, so of course, it rained on the clean window.

    And of course, I cleaned the window because I knew I was going to bring up the little tree. It must have a clean window to sit in.

    It was nice enough, 40°, that at dusk, which was around 5:20, I grabbed a beer and went for a walk! Had a second beer. That was the first walk in what seems like ages, and the first two beers in ages. It has been just too cold to hang around outside.

    Had to strike now since the snow is on its way.
