Learning to live with severe anthropogenic climate change

At this point it's looking more and more hopeless on the climate change front. Action has not only stalled, but will effectively be going in reverse for the next 4 years. Obviously we as a species will just need to mitigate the issue and live with it the best we can. I'm thinking we'll need a combination of geoengineering solutions combined with moving food production to cooler climates. We'll possibly need to relocate large numbers of people from coastal areas, but all of this should be doable.

Mother and her boyfriend rape, murder, and dismember their 14 year old adopted daughter

An arrest and allegations of a rape-murder fantasy in Abington teen's dismemberment

Update: The Bucks County District Attorney's Office announced Sunday morning that it was charging Sara Packer, the adoptive mother of 14-year-old Grace Packer, with homicide and related offenses in the death of her daughter.

This is a breaking news story that will be updated. Here is our earlier report.

The missing 14-year-old Abington teen found dismembered in Luzerne County was killed by her adoptive mother and mother's boyfriend as part of a rape-murder fantasy the two shared, authorities alleged early Sunday morning.

Sullivan and Packer planned Grace's murder for more than a year, killed her in July, stored her body in the attic of their rented home in Quakertown for nearly four months and later cut it up, according to the affidavit of probable cause against Sullivan. But first, Sullivan raped Grace while her mother watched, the criminal complaint says.

"This was a sexual fantasy that was shared between Jacob Sullivan and Sara Packer, and Grace Packer was the object of that rape-murder fantasy," Bucks County District Attorney Matthew D. Weintraub said.

4 children die in Texas gas poisoning; others injured

God damn, by all means keep using deadly chemicals around homes. Freaking idiots! So tired of people and their love of pesticides and poisons. My neighbor lost his dog just last year because it got into some god damn rat poison that somebody had put in their back yard. There are non-toxic ways to deal with pests....
AMARILLO, Texas A poisonous gas believed to have been released when someone tried to wash away a pesticide that had been sprayed under a Texas home killed four children and left six other people hospitalized, officials said Monday.

Phosphine gas was likely released when water mixed with the pest control chemical, Amarillo fire officials said. A specific cause of death had not been released for the four children Monday afternoon. The other six people who were in the home are "not out of the woods yet," fire officials said.

Crews who responded to a 5 a.m. call to the home originally thought it was related to carbon monoxide poisoning, Amarillo fire Capt. Larry Davis said in a statement. One child died at the scene and three others died at a hospital.

Officials didn't release any identifying information, including the children's ages or whether they were related. Davis said all four people who died were residents of the home.

Davis told the Amarillo Globe-News (http://bit.ly/2ivHgHv ) he wasn't sure how long the residents had been exposed to the phosphine gas before a visitor arrived Monday and found everyone sick and called 911. Phosphine gas can cause respiratory failure and in severe cases can cause a pulmonary edema, which fills the lungs full of fluid, he said.

Davis said about 10 first responders from the police, fire and medical response departments were also taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, but none had shown symptoms of illness.
