OK Tornado 1 MILE wide and 1 HOUR on the ground: Climate Collapse adds a premium to bad weather.

How many would have died and how bad would have been the damage if green house gases$$$ could have been reduced to make the Oklahoma Tornado, say, only ¾ of a mile wide and lasting on the ground for only 45 minutes?

Supreme Court$$$ declines to hear Alaska climate change case against Big Dirty Oil$$$.

"The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an Alaskan village's claim that it should be able to sue oil companies and utilities for damages attributed to climate change."

When does helping International firms succeed overseas conflict with a Presidents duty to be patriotic to America?

The examples are endless. For instance, it seems like exporting cheap dirty energy to China does more for China than it does the American 99%. And then there is using taxpayer money to help a Fisker Auto open up a factory in Finland. Finally, let’s not forget the bailout of Wall Street banks.

Sister Rice, Boertje-Obed, and Walli should be thanked and paid as nuclear security consultants

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
