Planet Earth is turning on us. Yesterday – violent storms lashed the southern United States – spinning off tornadoes – and killing more than 190 people. 128 people were killed in the state of Alabama alone yesterday – prompting Alabama authorities to declare a state of emergency. Arkansas and Tennessee have also declared states of emergency. Three nuclear reactors at Browns Ferry nuclear power plant were knocked off power in the storms – luckily the NRC confirmed that back up generators came on properly to just barely avert a Fukushima like disaster in America.
So how much more evidence do climate deniers need to understand that our planet is entering dangerous times as a result of our pollution? And by climate change deniers – I’m talking about EVERY newly-elected Republican in the United States House of Representatives who are self-proclaimed deniers of man-made global warming. That’s what millions in big oil campaign contributions get us - industry-owned politicians.
It’s becoming painfully – very painfully – clear what’s going on here – and soon it will be too late to reverse the damage we’re doing to our planet.
