Do any of you STILL believe in global warming?

Political and religious discussions go here. Tread lightly.

Trump Administration Hardens Its Attack on Climate Science
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/27/us/p ... ience.html
In the next few months, the White House will complete the rollback of the most significant federal effort to curb greenhouse-gas emissions, initiated during the Obama administration. It will expand its efforts to impose Mr. Trump’s hard-line views on other nations, building on his retreat from the Paris accord and his recent refusal to sign a communiqué to protect the rapidly melting Arctic region unless it was stripped of any references to climate change.

And, in what could be Mr. Trump’s most consequential action yet, his administration will seek to undermine the very science on which climate change policy rests.

Once upon a time you could get locked up for saying that the Earth revolved around the sun.

When science, or anything really, threatens the hegemony of powerful interests their instinct is to suppress and dominate.

I bet Trump is secretly a Flat Earth Society member.

Heartbreaking. There has to be a better way.

Same with plastics. So much of it in the ocean and waterways. Costs of this somehow need to owned by consumers and the profit-makers of the products.

India weather: Temperature passes 50 Degrees Celsius in northern India
Temperatures passed 50 degrees Celsius in northern India as an unrelenting heatwave triggered warnings of water shortages and heatstroke.

The thermometer hit 50.6 degrees Celsius in the Rajasthan desert city of Churu over the weekend, the weather department said.

All of Rajasthan suffered in severe heat with several cities hitting maximum temperatures above 47 Celsius.

In May 2016, Phalodi in Rajasthan recorded India’s highest-ever temperature of 51 Celsius.

The Indian Meteorological Department said severe heat could stay for up to a week across Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh states.

Several deaths from heatstroke have already been recorded.

About 200 million people live in northern India.
