Republicans Pout Because Six Million People Have Received Health Coverage Since October. politicususa.com

huffingtonpost.ca The New York Times editorial board has accused the Harper government of seeking to "guarantee public ignorance" by muzzling federal scientists. In a scathing piece published Sunday, the newspaper argues Harper Conservatives have tried to restrict publicly financed scientists from sharing information...

"It is also designed to make sure that nothing gets in the way of the northern resource rush — the feverish effort to mine the earth and the ocean with little regard for environmental consequences. The Harper policy seems designed to make sure that the tar sands project proceeds quietly, with no surprises, no bad news, no alarms from government scientists. To all the other kinds of pollution the tar sands will yield, we must now add another: the degradation of vital streams of research and information."

Climate Change Likely To Be 'Catastrophic Rather Than Simply Dangerous.' huffingtonpost.com

We have passed the stage of dangerous-simply because we have not faced the music- of curbing our emissions in the next few years. We will still be 80% dependent on fossil fuels by 2050. Yes we are heading toward a catastrophe- and no one is looking.

Climate change may be far worse than scientists thought, causing global temperatures to rise by at least 4 degrees Celsius by 2100, or about 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit, according to a new study. The study, published in the

***** YOUR MORAL IMPERATIVE. detail. READ THIS. SHARE.

YOUR MORAL IMPERATIVE: You can’t destroy all human future, just for your own; and YOU are, by ALLOWING so much Fossil Fuels. See Dr. James Hansen 12.03.13 Definitive Paper.

YOUR SCIENTIFIC FACT: YOU must cause a 6%/yr reduction in Fosil Fuel emissions beginning now, 2014. Impossible has been done before. Attempt it again, now. Hansen’s paper.

YOUR ONE STRATEGIC PRAYER: ‘Fee and Dividend,’ $240/tn carbon fuel implemented over 10 years.  Free, at  google books, see Hansen’s ‘Storms,’ Search ‘Fee and Dividend.’

YOUR ONE CHANCE TO ACHIEVE THIS
EXISTENTIALLY IMPERATIVE STRATEGY: Force this unassailable demand onto the Congressional table by shocking the country and the world with 10,000, on the Mall in DC, Civilly, Seriously, fasting to the death, if need be, till this morally unassailable demand -polluters pay their own wreckage fee, now - is assured of implementation.  Waves of Fasts till done.

It is now your responsibility to devote your life to making this happen; unless you devote to a better, more certain, more immediate, way.

"Recently, we learned that our governments, working in concert, have created a system of worldwide, mass surveillance, watching everything we do.
"Great Britain's George Orwell warned us of the danger of this kind of information. The types of collection in the book—microphones, and video cameras, TVs that watch us—are nothing compared to what we have available today."
