The concentration of climate-heating greenhouse gases has hit a record high, according to a report from the UN’s World Meteorological Organization. The jumps in the key gases measured in 2018 were all above the average for the last decade, showing action on the climate emergency to date is having no effect in the atmosphere. The WMO said the gap between targets and reality were both “glaring and growing”.(Snip) “It is worth recalling that the last time the Earth experienced a comparable concentration of carbon dioxide was 3-5m years ago. Back then, the temperature was 2-3C warmer and sea level

Comments:

They slip up and say temperatures and sea levels previously were much higher than they are now. Current Climate Emergency measures have no effect. Solution? Radically alter our lifestyles to prevent any deviation from an arbitrary set point when they say temperatures and sea levels were ideal.

So, their fictional "warming" isn't scaring anyone anymore, so they "turn up the heat". A medium sized lie doesn't work? Make a BIGGER LIE!

They are called greenhouse gasses because they provide nutrition and growth enhancement for plants to grow faster bigger and produce more oxygen.

"climate-heating greenhouse gases" a supposition, though I will agree that some level of CO2 will probably cause heating. We just haven't a clue what that level is except that we ain't near it.

This is not a crisis. Temperatures have been gradually rising for a couple of centuries. And when that happens the oceans release more CO2. CO2 is an indicator of temperature, not a driving cause. It is all perfectly natural. We can do nothing about it. Now go away.

So. What they're saying is....We can't do anything about it. And the earth has warmed up without human activity. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. So plan on planting warm weather crops, IF you think the temperatures in YOUR area are getting warmer. And plan on stocking up firewood IF the temperatures in YOUR area are getting colder. In the PNW, west of the Cascades, it's colder earlier this year. But it seems the plants started growing earlier in the spring last year. Adjust.

Large swaths of the US are bracing for one of the coldest Thanksgivings in decades as a pair of powerful winter storms threaten travel chaos for millions of Americans.

When the Rev. Al Sharpton calls, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson apparently listens. A bill to ban menthol-cigarette sales in the city has garnered overwhelming support in the council, yet Johnson refuses to bring it to a vote on the floor—because of concerns pushed by the Rev.

Sharpton and his powerful National Action Network have lobbied that a menthol ban could potentially lead to more black residents being harassed by cops for possessing illegal cigarettes.(Snip) Still, among the bill’s biggest backers is the NAACP,

Liberal Newark Mayor Ras Baraka is taking a page from President Trump’s book—by building a virtual wall between the city and Big Apple homeless shelters. The City Council passed legislation introduced by Baraka on Monday that would effectively ban New York City from sending its homeless there under the current state of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s controversial “Special One-Time Assistance” program. The move follows an October Post report revealing 5,074 homeless families have relocated to 373 cities with a full year of taxpayer-covered rent since the program’s August 2017 inception, according to Department of Homeless Services data

California is increasing business tax rates on legal marijuana, a move that stunned struggling companies that have been pleading with the state to do just the opposite. Hefty marijuana taxes that can approach 50 per cent in some communities have been blamed for pushing shoppers into California's tax-free illegal market, which is thriving. Industry analysts estimate that $3 are spent in the illegal market for every $1 in the legal one.(Snip) Governor Gavin Newsom had lowered expectations for projected tax dollars from within the legal market. In May, Newsom said it would take up to seven years for the legal marijuana industry

Gender transition can leave transgender people in a bit of a bind about their sexual desirability. While a transgender female may look, act, and feel masculine and exhibit male tendencies, she is just as female as any other female. If she is interested in either gay men or straight women, she could find herself perpetually attracted to individuals who are not going to be interested in her simply because of her vagina. The same holds true for transgender men who have retained their penises. If they are into lesbian women or straight men, those two demographics will most likely be turned off by their body parts.

’ll take the opportunity up front to double down on this post from Friday. I’d bet my life savings plus several internal organs that Pelosi will have 218 to impeach. That’s based on the simple reality that failing to do so at this point would cost Democrats more politically than proceeding with impeachment would. Voters who hate Trump would be furious and voters who like Trump wouldn’t give Pelosi and Schiff an ounce of credit for standing down in the end. The president would gloat about it every day unto eternity. Pelosi, long respected by both sides for her ability to whip votes, would be humiliated utterly.

One poll could be an outlier, but when two resected polls find the same outcome, it’s time to realize that, most likely, something serious is going on. Rasmussen, whose own daily tracking poll revealed that 34% of black likely voters support President Trump, was initially cautious about interpreting that result, as this response to a tweet by Dineen Borelli shows: So when Mrs. @deneenborelli - a friend & an engaged supporter of @realDonaldTrump today presents a snapshot of our privacy-focused daily likely voter results, please remember, not all survey samples & collection techniques are equal or comparable.

Hatred makes you crazy. There is perhaps no surer example of this principle than Never Trump stalwart Bill Kristol. Early Monday morning, he tweeted that another four years of Donald Trump would be more dangerous for free markets than four years of Elizabeth Warren as president. Not that Warren is anywhere near his first pick... "I very much prefer Biden or Buttigieg or Bloomberg or Klobuchar to Warren. But the idea that one term of Warren would pose anything like the threat of a second term for Trump to the basic norms and institutions of our liberal democracy, including to free markets, is laughable," Kristol insisted.

On July 25, 2019, President Donald Trump picked up the phone in the White House residence and attempted to shake down a foreign leader. Trump’s language was elliptical and soft, not direct and threatening, but his intentions were clear: He wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to “do us a favor.” That was Trump’s entree to his improper, indecent requests that Zelenskiy’s government undertake two investigations that would benefit Trump politically. Trump didn’t explain his motives, which of course were self-serving. First, he asked Zelenskiy to “find out what happened” with Ukraine’s supposed meddling, alongside Russia, in the 2016 U.S. election. Then there was Trump’s “other thing”: his desire that Ukraine “look into”
