Scientists say Miami could cease

Miami, a city of 430,000 people, could disappear within the century if the worst climate change predictions come true. New York Magazine´s David Wallace-Wells spoke with dozens of climatologists and researchers in related fields for an investigation on the outcomes of climate change if aggressive preventative action isn´t taken. The results were not pretty. (Snip) Within the century, a combination of polar melting, carbon emissions, and ice-sheet collapses could cause chronic flooding to wipe out Miami — and as many as 670 coastal communities, including Cambridge, Massachusetts; Oakland, California; St. Petersburg, Florida; and four of the five boroughs of New York City, according

Lots of Democrat strongholds will be at the bottom of the sea. But since when did Cambridge Mass. become a seaside city?

While accepting his ill gotten Nobel Prize in 2007 the Gorebot thundered with assurance that in seven years the Arctic will be entirely ice free in summer in seven years. August 2014 had seen record year over year growth of the icecap for over three years and expeditions to measure the ice ´melt´ got stuck and had to be rescued.

Some scientists will say anything to draw attention to themselves. They are basically fund-raising on the back of fear. Their views are not sustained by the facts so fear is the only option left for them.

The world will cease to exist if the worst comet predictions come true. So what? When I was very young, I remember the summers being very hot. Now that I am older, the summers are still hot. Over 50-60 years there hasn´t been a change in the summers that I have experienced. So why would the world change to utter disaster in less than 10 years. That would take a beyond dramatic change like a comet strike. Somehow, I just don´t buy all the hysteria.

Their predictions are always 50 to 100 years into the future. This is their worst prediction. They´ll all be gone by then. No accountability. And they can´t even predict the weather by this weekend correctly. These guesses shouldn´t even be considered science.

So the Earth is supposed to remain static, never changing? Look at the beautifully colored layers of sedimentary rock in the Grand Canyon. Every one of those layers was at the bottom of the ocean at sometime in the Geologic past.

Also remember Miami was built on sand which is on top of limestone. Just think sinkholes.

Miami´s excitable mayor recently declared that the city was going under water. That´s not true, nor will it be a century or more from now. Over time the oceans rise and recede, and the climate always changes. The only sensible thing for humanity to do is to do what the plant and animal kingdoms do: adapt. There´s nothing, positively or negatively, that mankind can do about the oceans to the climate. Quixotic attempts to "heal" the earth are a total waste of our wealth, and should be abandoned, along with politicians who keep insisting that we do something about it.

I have lived for over thirty years in a place on the edge of the Gulf where the tide can be observed, inch by inch, every day, right out my rear widow. Though my information is anecdotal, I can assure you that high and low tides are exactly where they were three decades ago. Whatever changes might have occurred in the ocean, they´re not noticeable here. It´s no different in Miami, regardless what their idiot mayor thinks.

If this is the best {rolling out the big guns) they can do in the wake of blockbuster papers like this one: http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=917718 the Warming Cultists are in big trouble.

I read that paper a week ago, and posted a link to all my social media websites. So far, crickets from the Warmists.

Hopefully, this whole Cult will cease to exist before Miami does. They are the ones who are underwater, being rapidly drowned by waves of truth.

A better place to instill fear is in Hawaii. If this comes true the Hawaiian islands will be half submerged. The climanaiaces fear that if all the icebergs floating in the ocean melt that sea levels will rise. Just like when they have a scotch on the rocks, when all the ice cubes melt, their drink will overflow the glass and spill out all over ther car seats.

CARACAS- The U.S. government ordered family members of employees at its embassy in Venezuela to leave on Thursday as a political crisis deepened ahead of a controversial vote critics contend will end democracy in the oil-rich country. Violence continued to rage on the street, with another five people killed during the latest opposition-led strike against President Nicolas Maduro´s planned election for a powerful new Constituent Assembly on Sunday. Adding to Venezuela´s growing international isolation, Colombian airline Avianca suddenly stopped operations in the country on Thursday due to "operational and security limitations."

As I wrote last week, my broad read on American public opinion on "social issues" is that most people are in favor of inclusion, but that most people dislike being told that they ought to change what they, personally, are doing. So naturally there have been efforts by social conservatives to frame transgender rights issues as being not about inclusion but about imposition on the broader public: That people are trying to make you or your child share a bathroom with someone of a different sex. But I don´t think this is winning over the public. Polling from the Public Religion Research

Scientists at the University of Washington are considering the prospects of a controversial climate change solution called "marine cloud brightening." Most agree the best solution to climate change is the curbing of carbon emissions -- by reducing the burning of fossil fuels, as well as increasing the adoption of renewable energy sources. (Snip) Researchers at the University of Washington have proposed spraying particulates over the ocean to encourage the formation of solar energy-reflecting marine clouds. They published their proposal this week in the journal Earth´s Future. Some climate scientists believe marine cloud brightening is already happening as a result of

A proposal to restrict the sale of menthol flavored tobacco drew dozens to Minneapolis City Hall Monday afternoon. While some said that the partial ban would reduce youth exposure to a harmful product, others made the case that the ordinance may hurt stores´ bottom lines. Convenience store owner Clay Lambert spoke out against the proposal, which would limit menthol sales to adult-only tobacco shops. He said tobacco sales make up about 35 percent of his business at the Metro Petro on University Avenue. Of those tobacco sales, Lambert said about half come from menthol flavored products.

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ. The President said that transgender service in the military causes

Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani IT staffers and brothers who were paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach. Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he tried to Hillary Clinton that Michigan and Wisconsin voters might lean toward Donald Trump before the 2016 presidential election but claims no one would listen. Moore appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night to promote his upcoming one-man Broadway show, The Terms of My Surrender. But the Michigan resident took time to discuss the current political climate, saying he ´never wanted to be more wrong in my life´ when warning people about Trump voters. ´I was trying to warn the rest of the country, out here, people who voted for Obama

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
