We have seen the devastation in foreign countries because of climate changes. It is impacting us now.
The article “Foretelling Devastating Impact, Will White House Climate Report Spark Action on Global Warming? describes how the US has already seen horrifying effects as it states, we have incurred “rising sea levels along the coasts, droughts and fires in the Southwest, and extreme rainfall across the country.”
The article “U.S. climate report says global warming impact already severe” amplifies how it is happening now in the US.
The article states “The government’s newest national assessment of climate change declares that increased global warming is affecting every part of the United States…”For a long time, we have perceived climate change as an issue that’s distant, affecting just polar bears or something that matters to our kids,” said Katharine Hayhoe, a Texas Tech University professor and a co-author of the report. “This shows it’s not just in the future; it matters today.””
Guess what? It will cost them a few bucks so the fat cats don’t care about the tragedy they cause our own citizens. The Koch brothers co-founded the Cato Institute and predictably they manufactured a contrived report that counters this assessment and will find wide play by GOP politicians in the brothers pockets and on FOX News and Rush Limbaugh et al.
The article “Koch Industries: Still funding climate denial” delineates how much money they have spent on this and why -because it is profitable to them.
Hey, we are the ugly Americans. To too many of us if it isn’t happening here it doesn’t matter. Maybe we have been desensitized to other peoples’ suffering, but it is now happening here. We are experiencing deaths and financial calamities due to climate change.
FOX News doesn’t cover the climate change calamities because they don’t want the fat cats to lose a buck. They rot your brain with sensualized drivel to take your mind of what is occurring in your own country. See how Hillary Clinton is involved in the Benghazi tragedy and how the IRS tried to force Karl Rove’s Crossroad GPS to be classified not as a social welfare entity on a continual loop until your mind is comfortable numb.
Karl Rove and social welfare-that is rich and it epitomizes how much GOP hypocrisy that the red staters can swallow.
Too many of us are willing to believe the right-wings’ propaganda, but the damage is happening in your own back yards right this second. The fat cats have greed as their driving force but can sheer laziness be the motivation for those among us who are the victims of climate change denial?
