Sunshine shines right now this Monday morning on California’s north coast — rain again this afternoon (about 40-percent chance), and supposedly a nice stretch of clear skies by Thursday, and brightly, hopefully further on into the weekend.
Weather nowadays is rather complicated, however…
In the latest horror, shit-lie from T-Rump — bigley voter fraud — he’s apparently still hanging-onto his climate-change forked-tongue face. Despite blather about “some connectivity” between man and climate, T-Rump is lying personifying itself.
Yellow-turd Reince Priebus (HuffPost yesterday): ‘“As far as this issue on climate change, the only thing he was saying after being asked a few questions about it was, look, he’ll have an open mind about it. But he has his default position which, most of it is a bunch of bunk...But he’ll have an open mind and listen to people.”‘

In a yuugly, loud, collective voice: Yeah right!
Major factor is T-Rump doesn’t have a mind to open, hence the nightmare rub.
As he and his crew of shit-pieces blubber about some whatever-dumb-ass bullshit, the climate continues to get worse, and worse, and then worse still — in ‘an ominous (though not hopeless) report‘ published Friday, researchers warn of evidently-impending ‘tipping points‘ in our polar regions, 19 of them, in fact.
Via Common Dreams last Friday:
The Arctic Resilience Report, produced under the auspices of the Arctic Council by an international team of researchers from multiple institutes and universities, is the first comprehensive assessment of its kind, looking at the unique region from a combined social and ecological perspective.
By surveying and synthesizing a large body of previous research on how both communities and natural systems are responding to global warming, the report offers a worrying conclusion.
“The warning signals are getting louder,” Marcus Carson of the Stockholm Environment Institute and one of the lead authors of the new report, told the Guardian.
“[These developments] also make the potential for triggering [tipping points] and feedback loops much larger.”
The signs of dramatic change, the researchers found, are everywhere in the Arctic.
“Temperatures nearly 20°C above the seasonal average are being registered over the Arctic Ocean,” the report states.
“Summer sea-ice cover has hit new record lows several times in the past decade. Infrastructure built on permafrost is sinking as the ground thaws underneath.”
The fear of tipping points — which occur when natural systems hit limits that force dramatic, cascading, and often irreversible changes—have long been held among scientists studying the dynamic impacts of human-caused global warming and climate change.
Referred to as “regime shifts” in the report, the concept is the same.
“One of the study’s most important findings is that not only are regime shifts occurring, but there is a real risk that one regime shift could trigger others, or simultaneous regime shifts could have unexpected effects,” said Johan L. Kuylenstierna, executive director of the Stockholm Environment Institute, which contributed to the study.
An overbalance of insanity…
