The US Is Set To Drown The World In Oil -- Just So We Know What Our Climate Politics Are Up Against

Share of production from new oil & gas fields: 2020-2029

Small pie chart:

Big pie chart:



... by the end of the next decade, new oil and gas fields in the US will produce more than twice what Saudi Arabia produces today.

The future of our changing climate and its increasingly devastating impacts across the globe will be shaped by future oil and gas production. And if the future of oil and gas production is decided by what happens in new fields, then it will be determined by what happens in the US in the next decade.


I feel an unspeakable fear for our children's and grandchildren's future planned by oil oligarchs.

Jane Mayer On the Origin of Right Wing Conspiracy Fabricators

Chris Hayes brings Jane Mayer to American awareness.

Jane Mayer brings Robert Mercer's dark money Government Accountability Institute to American awareness.

Mercer's Breitbart's Steve Bannon was behind Peter Schweitzer, who wrote Clinton's Cash, which kicked off the right wing's media stories.

Now, our media still falls for all this same right wing dirt, motivated by ratings and profit.

My theory: Brad Parscale's digital campaign uses variations of these 'stories' in a game of telephone on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp.

Dark money drives all this. But you can't tell that to Justice Samuel Alito.

Numbers From Malcolm Nance's FB Post On Trump and Turkey


A lawsuit filed by 29 senators and 186 House Democrats

-- one of three lawsuits claiming Trump is in violation of the Constitution’s emoluments clauses, which bar the president from receiving any monetary or other benefits from foreign entities while in office --

has uncovered that Turkey has among the highest number of foreign business ventures in which Trump is at least a partial owner, with a whopping 119 businesses listed in addition to Trump Tower Istanbul. Others include China, with 115, and the Philippines, with 121.

Businesses linked to the Turkish government are also major patrons of the Trump Organization.

Turkish officials have made 14 visits to Trump properties, more than any other country, according to an analysis performed for NBC News by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

Go, Malcolm!

Meanwhile, Climate Change Don't Care About Politics, Disaster, Risk, Seasons

Unheard of bankruptcies by "bedrock" companies is the new future.

No ego-fights over economic or political "risk," "exposure" will save us.

We are now in a human killing era that our little pockets still refuse to pay anything to slow down.

Come ON, Pentagon, act like you really know what your declaration of #1 National Security Threat REALLY means.

A universal framework for addressing cascading disasters still needs to be developed.

A global system that can predict the interactions between natural and built environments MIGHT save millions of lives and billions of dollars.

Most important, community outreach and public education must be prioritized to raise awareness of the potential risks cascading hazards will cause.


Climate Crisis Cascades Begin -- October Blizzard

Not normal. Pics aren't available yet.


A potentially record-setting blizzard is bearing down on the region and could dump snow from Colorado to Minnesota. The Dakotas sit near the epicenter of the storm and could see up to three feet of October snow (yes, you read that right). Add in gusty winds and you have a recipe for life-threatening conditions.

As the storm pushes eastward, frigid air will continue to drop out of Canada and sweep across the Midwest. Along with rapidly dropping temperatures, the storm will usher in winds upwards of 60 mph and heavy snow.

Research indicates that a wavier jet stream could in part be driven by rapid Arctic warming. The northern tier of the planet is heating up faster than the rest of the world. That, in turn, is causing the temperature gradient that normally keeps the jet stream taut to become a little looser, allowing for wobbles in the river of air.

While nobody has done an analysis of whether this particular storm is tied to this phenomenon, researchers expect ripples in the jet stream could become more common. And with Arctic sea ice—a key indicator of warming in the region—just hitting its second-lowest extent on record this September, it sure fits a pattern.

Every year, every season will not be normal. Every year, until humans change their energy sources.


Police shoot pepper spray outside amid protest as Trump rally wraps up

Source: Minneapolis Star Tribune

Boisterous and energetic protesters of Donald Trump packed the streets Thursday evening around Target Center in downtown Minneapolis for the president's rally at Target Center, and the night was largely peaceful until disturbances prompted police on horseback and bicycles to form protective lines amid the agitated crowd... protesters swelled and enthusiasm remained high for what has been several hours of demonstrating that persisted while Trump spoke to his faithful inside a packed arena.

Much of the day remained peaceful outside Target Center before a few incidents flared as the president kept up his speaking marathon...after 9 p.m., protesters began burning Trump memorabilia in the street, including flags and "Make America Great Again" hats. According to the Unicorn Riot livestreatm, vehicles leaving the area were confronted by protesters, and a flag was snagged from one car as it crept past. One man in an SUV calmly handed a protester his "MAGA" hat.

Police employed pepper spray in an effort to quell one disturbance, and members of a pro-Trump militia-style group a few blocks away were confronted by police as they left their hotel...Minneapolis police have yet to report any arrests, but a few members of the Oath Keepers group were briefly detained after a bystander alerted authorities to men having weapons outside a hotel a few blocks east of the arena.

Montanan Stewart Rhodes, speaking on behalf of the Oath Keepers, said it was "just a misunderstanding" because of their appearance that drew the police response. Rhodes said he and the others are in Minneapolis to protect attendees leaving Target Center after the rally ends, a service they have provided at other Trump events around the country.
