There are so many cities in this country that have contaminated water--not just flint. Seriously. Do a search. Here's a new one.

Holy Cow--50 degrees. Not Good. The north and south pole are warming much faster than the rest of the planet.

Oklahoma now rivals California when it comes to earthquake threat. I know, over the past few years, I have posted the occurrence of quakes in Oklahoma. Earthquakes, of course, are a new phenomena for these states, and are absolutely, entirely a result of fracking. But, to rival California is a trip.

Our water is contaminated through out the country. Lead is everywhere, as is chemical, agricultural (pesticide (fungicide,etc.), animal production waste (primarily from the massive factory farming), and pharmaceutical (again, primarily factory farming).

The Larson C ice shelf in Antarctica has calved releasing an iceberg the size of Delaware with the water content twice the size of Lake Erie weighing 1.1 trillion tons (1 ton is 2,000 pounds). Ice shelves A and B are already depleted.

Excellent short article from Charles Pierce "We're all dead cows walking".
And yet, the village idiot despot leads the U.S.

The 'dead zone' in the Gulf of Mexico is the largest ever--the size of New Jersey or more than one million football fields. Get the picture? It is named the dead zone because there is no oxygen, so nothing can live in it.

Check this out. The permafrost is melting. The north and south poles are warming faster than the rest of the planet. The thawing permafrost in Iceland is on fire and has been burning for a while now, and will continue to burn for a while longer. The release of methane from the peat is an enormous problem and will affect temperatures and climate/weather (the vast permafrost in russia is melting, as well). So, punch a hole in the permafrost and you can light it. Not Good!
