Full story: Newsday

When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

These science deniers are waging an icon war.. just look at their work 24/7..

Pathetic. If you can't dent the science, then deny the science posts with silly icons, huh.. losers..

oh my 'middle', don't hold back so much. your like japan trying to hold all of their radioactive water from the ocean. speaking of which, if one of those spent fuel pools falls we will no longer have to worry about anything. litesong will rejoice. there is no way to fix a stupid person like him. weather is weather, three nuclear reactor cores melting out of the containment buildings, and at this time nobody knows where they are at, spent radioactive mox fuel rods in pools high in the air, that are in danger of falling and catchingfire, joining with the missing cores and radioactive water leaking into the ocean should concern his primate mind more than the madeup fairytale of global warming caused by man.

Aww kal is hurting in the middle..

Most at risk cities Dhaka, Mumbai, Manila, Kolkata, Bangkok – lowest risk in London, Paris

With commercial activity and the middle classes predominantly based in urban centres, Maplecroft has also calculated the risks to the world’s largest cities to pinpoint where the economic exposure will be highest over the next 30 years.

According to the CCVI’s sub-national calculations, of the 50 cities studied, five present an ‘extreme risk’– Dhaka in Bangladesh; Mumbai and Kolkata in India; Manila in the Philippines and Thailand’s Bangkok – while only two London and Paris were classified as ‘low risk.’ Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta, which encompasses the cities of Guangzhou, Dongguan and Foshan and make up China’s manufacturing heartland, are among the most exposed to physical risks from extreme climate-related events.

P.S. No shoreline is risk-free, though..

.. by PCROBERTS .. The Fukushima catastrophe has hardly begun. Yet already the radioactive water pouring into the Pacific Ocean has made fish dangerous to eat unless a person is willing to accept a higher risk of cancer.

Fukushima has the potential of making Japan uninhabitable and of polluting the air, water, and soil of the US with radioactivity. Yet the crisis is seldom mentioned in the US media. In Japan the government just passed a law that could be used to imprison Japanese journalists who report truthfully on the dire situation.

Take the time to familiarize yourself with the online information about Fukushima.. According to the presstitute media, Americans face threats from Iran and Syria and from whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden. The real threats are simply not in the news.

If you search Fukushima, you will find information that the presstitute media hides from you. See for example, http://www.globalresearch.ca/28-signs-that-th... .

What's the most compelling experimental test you've found for climate change mitigation? Does it seem to indicate a carbon tax is better than cap and trade? Is investment in carbon sinks more productive than CO2 emission restrictions? Just what does the experimental science say?

So far, not one publication of climate change mitigation experimentation. Man made catastrophic climate change theory is also untested.

Don't buy a pig in a poke. Wait for the science to catch up with the hype. Now isn't the time to cut off your head for cryopreservation, either.

Thanks for confirming you just want to act like a child with your name calling and also like to whine about global warming while personally doing nothing about it.

About 400 metric tons of contaminated groundwater flows into the ocean from the Fukushima site every day. Tepco is scheduled next month to begin extracting spent fuel rods from one of the reactors buildings, a task that precedes the removal of melted uranium cores in three other reactors.[Tepco Can’t Manage Fukushima Cleanup Alone, Ruling Party Says]

More voices from the coalfields:
From Pikeville, KY:
“Obama promised to Kill Coal and Kill jobs in KY.That is ONE promise even Obama will keep.
Middle Class KY Dem voters will gladly increase their own families Tax payments to the State by at least 30% to cover the loss in State Revenue.
All Hail THE Obama!!”
From Winchester, KY:
“But what the hell good does it do for us to keep harping about it. It is a lead pipe cinch that OBAMA and the EPA destroyed the Eastern Ky. Coal industry and will destroy the rest of the coal regions over the next 10 years. OK, we are in agreement on that so lets move on.
Now we need to make him and congress fix it, they broke it they should have to fix it.
You might say steel was destroyed by competition "subsidized by governments to dump it here lower than we could produce it". You might say the Automotive industry in Detroit was destroyed by competition "corporate lobbyist pushing for outsourcing every damn living wage automotive Mfg. job" plus the influx of Japanese and Korean cars.
Coal is unique in that coal was not destroyed by competition, coal was destroyed by the Federal Government, first by our government signing on to the U.N. Kyoto Protocol to reduce carbon emissions, then by the E.P.A. raising air standards beyond what the burning of coal for power production can meet, now by actively trying to kill the export of coal to China and India also.
I'm not talking welfare or even direct job creation because not the Federal, State or local government is responsible for job creation but they are responsible for creating conditions for job creation and the economy to transition from coal which they killed to non coal jobs.
The Federal Government should declare the Eastern Ky. Coal Fields an Economic Disaster area because they are the ones that created this disaster and then congress should vote funds for projects to help the area transition from coal.
If Obama likes renewables let them convert every flood control dam we have to hydroelectric. If he likes solar let them fund Solar Powered Power Generation Projects across the coal fields on abandoned strip mine property. Let them fund displaced miner and worker training to work in these industries plus plant maintenance if we can attract any in here with cheaper power and lower taxes. They can help with the tax subsidy for new industry into Eastern Ky.
OK, so Obama killed the Coal Industry, he broke it, make him fix it. Our Gov. that carried water for his Obamacare needs to call in a favor. Our state senators need to get him to declare the place he broke an Economic Disaster Area and congress needs to pass legislation to fund projects in Eastern Ky. that will help us transition from a coal to a non coal economy.”

From Pikeville, KY:
“The 500 Billion that Obama gave just one solar panel company Sylndra would have converted every flood control dam we have in Eastern Ky. to Hydroelecric Power generating stations. It would have built several large Solar Generating stations across Eastern Ky. on the tops of abandoned Strip Job plateaus. It could have finished and built more interstate Highways into the region. It could have aid for the retraining of our workforce to be qualified for the non coal industry that cheap power and tax subsidy would create. It would have the immediate effect from the construction and new jobs created by the renewable projects construction. Millions of dollars pumped into the local economy just from the construction phase of the renewable energy projects. This would be Obama's shinning moment to prove the viability of his push for renewable energy sources as he helps an area's economy he destroyed to transition from coal that he destroyed to Hydro and Solar.
500 Billion wasted on a corporation that was set up just to skim off the money. Not one watt of solar electric power created and he can't spend just one hundred billion here to save an area he helped destroy? This is what we need to be telling the Gov., Mitch, Rogers, Rand Paul and everybody that has Obama's ear. He broke it, he needs to help fix it.”
