Here’s what’s happening today.


It hit 40C east of Kamloops BC around 17:00 This afternoon. I don’t deny the climate is changing. I deny that what you and yours purpose will accomplish anything. The only solution is to start testing weather modification. If you’re not willing to do that you’re not serious about climate change.

Getting people to ride bikes to work won’t cut it.

That's strange. Last time I looked, it was the "non-woke" who want to dictate what books are available to read, who want to dictate whether women can have abortions, who want to prevent other parents from taking their children to a library and listening to someone dressed up in funny clothes reading children's books about being nice to people even if they aren't like you, and who perversly poke their noses into other people's sexual preferences.

Surabi-
Very rich. You are a real contortionist. You must be able to smell a different fragrance in the winds than regular folk can.
The only point you have in that paragraph is the abortion deal.
And that is probably one of the few points I can agree with you on. But there are a LOT of conservative people like me that think abortion should be left to personal choice.

The “woke” are in the media manipulating story lines and not reporting on stories that affect their agenda. Talk about removing “books” from shelves.

People dressed in funny clothes at the library talking about treating people nicely sounds great. Unfortunately you are not being honest with yourself in regards to what is actually happening in that scenario.

Your bullcrap is getting deep enough to smother the poor Palm tree.

Climate Change Was on Trial in Montana
A judge found there was “a fundamental constitutional right to a clean and healthful environment.”
https://www.nytimes.com/2023/08/15/climate/climate-change-wa...

The state of Montana has a constitutional obligation to protect its residents from climate change.

That was the stunning ruling from a judge who delivered a landmark decision on Monday. It compels Montana, a major coal and gas producing state, to consider climate change when deciding whether to approve or renew fossil fuel projects.

The state Constitution guarantees residents “the right to a clean and healthful environment.” In a lawsuit, Held v. Montana, 16 young people argued that the government had violated that right by enabling rampant development of fossil fuels, contributing to climate change and polluting the state.



Yes - youth being funded by a group of climate radicals who argued emotion over law and won by virtue of a shopped judge where the outcome was locked in before the first day of trial.

Surprisingly, Montana is a very red state in every way except it's judiciary which is about 70% radical left. The MT bar gets it's chosen 1's elected very effectively.

Additionally, the previous left wing DA was responsible for enabling a judge trial and not a jury trial....he was a leftist before the red wave was voted in here.

Granted - it's a victory for the climate radicals the state is probably stuck with.

On another note - mean avg temperatures in the UK were abnormally cool in July....here in Montana as well.

Scientists say!!!!!!!

Research finds reducing consumption of just one food item in UK would be like taking 8 million cars off the road: ‘It would make a really big difference’

According to a new study undertaken by an Oxford University professor, if the biggest meat eaters in the United Kingdom were to switch to low-meat diets, the environmental impact would be equivalent to eight million cars being taken off the road.

Professor Peter Scarborough and his research team surveyed 55,000 people with varying diets and analyzed the results in depth, accounting for all the myriad impacts that the production of different foods have on the environment, including land use, water use, water pollution, and loss of species.

Their findings were that meat eaters had the highest environmental impact in every case.

The study found that someone with a high-meat diet accounted for about 22.58 pounds worth of carbon dioxide production per day, while someone with a low-meat diet would account for about 11.84 pounds worth. A vegan would account for about 5.45 pounds on average.

The study’s findings do not say that everyone has to become a vegetarian or vegan in order to save the planet, but rather that simply reducing the mount of meat people eat would be a huge benefit.

”Our results show that if everyone in the UK who is a big meat-eater reduced the amount of meat they ate, it would make a really big difference,” Professor Scarborough told the BBC. “You don’t need to completely eradicate meat from your diet.”

The adverse environmental impacts of the meat industry are not news — a growing body of scientific research has documented how harmful it is. Animal farming contributes a huge amount of planet-warming gases to the atmosphere relative to plant farming, while also using up and also polluting a huge amount of water.

However, another study has found that although people are aware that meat impacts the environment, they are largely under-informed about the extent of the problem. In reality, livestock farming accounts for 14.5% of the heat-trapping gases produced by humans worldwide, reports the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Your heroine forgot to put on her pressure suit gloves, not good! She’s also standing in a pile of dead people with her faceplate open. That can’t smell great either.

How obesity is harming the planet: Overweight people generate an extra 700 MILLION tons of carbon dioxide a year, US study claims

Obesity Society calculated environmental impact of increased food intake

Overweight people are responsible for 20 per cent more greenhouse gas emissions compared with a lean person

Transporting obese people also causes an excess of carbon dioxide emissions

Plus, the sea level rises when they all go swimming at the beach.

It's just not a good thing. ;)

Obesity:

The following data show the United States is number 12 with 36.2% and Mexico is number 28 at 28.9%..

https://www.cia.gov/the-world-factbook/field/obesity-adult-p...

Perhaps there are newer data, but I doubt it would significantly differ.

Also, many reports that show worldwide data by country on almost anything depend upon self-reported data. And who knows if all countries define obesity the same way. ????

This may help sooth my eco-anxiety:

California sues oil giants, saying they downplayed climate change.

The state of California has filed a sweeping climate lawsuit against Exxon Mobil, Shell, BP, ConocoPhillips, and Chevron, as well as the domestic oil industry's biggest lobby, the American Petroleum Institute.

The suit, filed on Friday in San Francisco Superior Court, claims that the companies misled the public for decades about climate change and the dangers of fossil fuels. It demands the companies help fund recovery efforts related to California's extreme weather events, from rising sea levels to drought and wildfires, that have been supercharged by human-caused climate change.

"Oil and gas companies have privately known the truth for decades — that the burning of fossil fuels leads to climate change — but have fed us lies and mistruths to further their record-breaking profits at the expense of our environment. Enough is enough," said Rob Bonta, California's attorney general.
