The official drought map of California looks as if has been set on fire and scorched in the center. The Bay Area has pulled out its umbrellas only few times this year. The usual December reprieve, a storm or two, has been denied us. The jet stream that pushes rains across our landscape remains up

And what price do you think it would take to stop an industry after $50 trillion in reserves? This is the sole reason the Fossil Fuel Industry has won. They know - they can exact a far greater price from lefties than lefties are wiling to pay. (Same for all the other leftie causes, too.) A future for creation has a terrible price, and no one wants to pay it.

Yes, it will cost you dearly, everything that is not essential, not divine, not Joy. Yes, it is opposite of everything you’ve been taught in this sickest of all times. And all else is the path away from Joy, Life, Peace on Earth... the very survival of Creation.

***** pic. You’ll know that you want to stop ecocide, in time, when... detail...

You’ll know that you want to stop ecocide, in time, when, as the Greatest Generation did, you’ve dropped everything, and run and put your very being in way of the greatest emergency ever to confront children, grandchidlren, all of humanity, and all of Creation. Until then, stopping ecocide is just a feel-good hobby for you.

BTW, how many people will have to risk it all to stop an industry bankrolled by $50 trillion in fossil fuel reserves, and sociopathic enough to destroy everything to get it?

All I see, anywhere on the global warming scene, are hobbyists. The 1 in a million exception proves the rule.

pic. You have no idea how little drinkable water is on earth. See pic.

Kind of puts it into perspective, eh?
 
So I'm sat here thinking about how astounding our Universe is, all those planets, Mars, Venus, Pluto, Saturn, Uranus, the Moon etc. You see the pictures of them from space and can't help but be in awe of such magnificence but they're dead aren't they......Just rock, dust and gas. There is no grass, trees, no birds, no lakes or rivers, no lions or giraffes, elephants and ants, no humans and all because of water. Yet what is truly astounding is actually how little of it there is on Earth and the amount of fresh water is miniscule (see pic). Without that water we'd be another barren rock in space, no colours, no life just an empty ball of dust and rock held in an orbit around the sun until it burnt out. This is what fracking threatens the planet with, becoming just rock and dust, polluting the small amount of water we have for profit. A short term benefit for a few at the cost of all life The fact is that fracking carries risks, no oil man will tell you different, they admit it freely yet say they can manage those risks. This has not been the case in most Countries such as the USA where there is a wealth of evidence of pollution, of sickness in man and beast and of droughts caused by the water useage. We've seen the Pacific Ocean is now being polluted with radioactive waste from Fukushima, where peoples are being advised not to eat seafood and food grown in Japan. We cannot afford mistakes with water, there is no back up, no spare planet we can go to replenish our stock. We have a limited amount and that amount is a lot smaller than you think, the picture is genuine -I know it's hard to believe but that is it -if your stocks were that low in your cupboard would you take chances ? The image was a US Geological Survey image so is accurate. Are you really willing to risk all life on Earth for a Gas and Oil Company's profits ? http://8020vision.com/2012/05/15/how-much-water-is-on-earth/

I Love you all, known and unknown.  Nothing can change that, even this.  Yesterday I did a massive posting of the pic below in FB.  It is the first time anyone has called for action that would likely save a future for humanity.  Wanna know how many replied?  2 - two 'likes.'  The point?  EVERYONE I KNOW IS 'OK' WITH THE WORLD GOING TO HELL.  The point isn't that the pic below is perfect, tho it may be - I'm a life long master of massive strategic change.  But it is at least in the ball-park - AND NO ONE WANT'S ANYTHING TO DO WITH PAYING SUCH A PRICE.  Had my father's generation been as we are today, here in DC the flags on buildings would be Swastikas.  We are a nation of Talkers, Lip-service liberals.  My FB community, my FB friends, are Talkers, not Doers of any consequence, my beloved brothers and sisters all. They Talk AS A SUBSTITUTE for paying the price to change the future.  I don't know how this will affect my future use of FB, but I suspect it will.  I am not at liberty to feed the deadly globe-killing, future killing disease of Lip Service.   A Joyful New Year to you all. Loving you all

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 Likely To Be 'Catastrophic Rather Than Simply Dangerous'

***** 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.
