Half of all killer whales are doomed to die from pollution. How fucking sad is this. Of course, everything is affected by this pollution--including your babies. Nothing will remain unscathed.

The new normal.

and, republicans and their believers call it a farce, the media has played it safe and not talked about it, but the folks in the direct path of the impending doom happening in real time to them now want media to talk about it. These folks live in the heart of the bible belt--all red states--all republican, global warming deniers now want to talk about it. Funny how that happens, huh. Unfortunately, sadly, the genie is out of the bottle. Going forward, there is no real repairing in sight. It's all about mitigation, now. Stealing from Michael Anenatti, "buckle up, buttercup".

and, MIT's Kerry Emanuel on climate change and stronger hurricanes/typhoons. And, take notice that this is 2 years ago. The progression has accelerated exponentially. Like it or not, it's here y'all. 4 min.

Court orders ban on top selling pesticide, says EPA violated law and ignored scientific studies. This all under the direction of corrupt scott pruit, by extension of donald j trump. Slight amounts damage children's brain.

The air very is bad. It looks like china. Wildlife at burn site is decimated. The death toll will be enormous. The communities hit were already struggling because of poverty, so coming back for that many displaced people will be the gravest of challenges. It's a real disaster. No rain forecast until at least Thanksgiving.
