Good. I hope he’s found guilty.
And I hope they can find something on the Koch Brothers and go after them, too.

Texas Floods and Climate Change

image

With at least a dozen people dead and the raging high waters described as having ‘tsunami-type power’ in Texas over the Memorial Day weekend, the latest example of extreme weather in the United States is being tied to a global pattern of increasingly volatile events that are claiming lives and costing billions of dollars in damage each year.

As Texas Gov. Greg Abbott expanded the range of a declared disaster zone in his state on Tuesday, neighboring Oklahoma is also coping with an emergency response to flash floods and overflowing rivers.

Marking the official end of a four-year long drought in the south-central part of the country, the storms may be filling the region’s diminished reservoirs, but not without a high cost.

As the nation’s media focuses on the acute damage to property and loss of life, an international conference sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which kicked off in Switzerland on Monday, may shed additional light on the impact that human-caused climate change is having on the planet’s highly-dynamic weather patterns.

With the title of ‘Facing Up to Climate Change, Extreme Weather,’ the WMO conference is asking the world’s foremost meteorologists to weigh in on how increased atmospheric and ocean temperatures created by carbon and other heat-trapping gases affect the planet’s weather patterns.

“So far in 2015 – as in preceding years – weather-related disasters have destroyed or disrupted millions of lives and livelihoods,” said WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud ahead of the meeting. Citing devastating events like Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu, major droughts in India, California, and Brazil, and the kind of flooding that recently struck Chile and now being seen in Texas, Jarraud said the “list of extreme events is long and there is growing scientific evidence that at least some of them would have been unlikely without human-induced climate change.”

Oh, but….but….but….there is no such thing as man-made global climate change, so we don’t have to change a damned thing that we are doing!!! Right? Right? Right? Hello, is this microphone on?

Idiots. The climate change deniers are idiots. And the ones who aren’t total Fox News devouring idiots are dangerous corporate greed-heads who are making enough money that they don’t give a shit about mucking up the earth for future generations, as long as their profits keep rolling in.

{{Sigh}} :-(
