Climate October Surprise?

global warming imagesClimate October Surprise? -  could climate change be a thing of violent swiftness? New research indicates it took only months for Europe to freeze solid 12,800 years ago. This new analysis  is showing that Europe froze not in a decade—as previously thought from analysis of Greenland ice cores—but in less than 12 months, when a giant freshwater lake - its remnant is the Hudson Bay - burst its banks and flooded the North Atlantic with billions of gallons of cold water, shutting down the Gulf Stream that keeps Europe warm. This sudden freezing terminated the Native American Clovis culture, the dominant culture in North America at the time, and killed off many of the early human in inhabitants of Europe, which was covered with ice, too. Once triggered, the cold persisted for 1,300 years.If you thought you could miss all the major climate change effects, surprise! Get out your winter duds and show shoes!

Speaking to the Economist recently, Gov. Tim Pawlenty  told reporters that he questions the science underpinning climate change. Pawlenty explained that while the earth might be warming, it is unclear “to what extent that is the result of natural causes.” As ThinkProgress has noted, Pawlenty has veered sharply to the right to appease a right-wing, tea party base.  In Dec. 2006 Pawlenty laid out an ambitious clean energy program for Minnesotans to reduce their use of fossil fuels 15 percent by 2015. Now in November 2009 - it's tea party time.  Or presidential ambition time.

Thom,
The governing laws for civil rights in civil actions is found at 42 USC 1983 (Title 42 United States Code, Section 1983); for criminal denial of civil rights is at 18 USC 242. These apply TO ALL PERSONS. The 5th and 6th amendments tell everyone what is required to bring a criminal prosecution or a war prosecution. To be faithful to the law and constitution, NY City is the venue with jurisdiction to the CRIMES of 9/11.

This post is for Thom. I went to my cardiologist on Tuesday, November 16, 2009. He is the same person who shared with me the two kinds of capitalism in the world - predatory capitalism and responsibe capitalism.

On this visit to his office he said that one writer(I cannot remember the name)
mentioned that for society to move forward the very few at the top had a responsibility to help the many on the bottom. He does not see the few helping the many.

Civilizations succumb to greed. Personally, we are seeing the beginning of Nazi America destroying herself. I have only three letters to say for Nazi America on a positive note - R. I. P.

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
