4. We were warned long long ago; and chose to do nothing



in fact; right wingers chose to laugh at people like Al Gore; because he would sometimes sigh.

11. And we still choose to do nothing.

We are living on the cusp of the apocalypse and our leaders -- the world’s leaders -- seem unwilling or unable to do anything about it except teeter

12. LBJ was on it in 1965:

https://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/energy-environment/259342-fifty-years-ago-the-white-house-knew-all-about-climate
(posted 2015)

Fifty years ago, on November 5, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson’s White House released “Restoring the Quality of our Environment”, a report that described the impacts of climate change, and foretold dramatic Antarctic ice sheet loss, sea level rise, and ocean acidification. That 1965 White House report stated:



“Carbon dioxide is being added to the earth’s atmosphere by the burning of coal, oil, and natural gas at the rate of 6 billion tons a year. By the year 2000 there will be about 25 percent more CO2 in our atmosphere than present.”

Catastrophically, on the 50th anniversary of the White House report, CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere are indeed at 399 ppm: 25 percent over 1965 levels, exactly as predicted 50 years ago. Science.

The 1965 White House report went on to detail the federal government’s extensive understanding of the urgency and dire impacts of climate change. The report warned:

“This will modify the heat balance of the atmosphere to such an extent that marked changes in climate, not controllable through local or even national efforts, could occur. Possibilities of bringing about countervailing changes by deliberately modifying other processes that affect climate may then be very important.”

5. Meanwhile, here in the NM desert, it's 62 and pouring rain

A week ago it was in the mid 90s by this time of day.

Wild weather swings, they're coming to your part of the world, too.

Better learn how to cook, your diet's about to get really weird.

7. I can't imagine what its like in the Pacific NW now

Just glad I'm not still in Calif.

10. No, it wasn't the end.

Yes, she was dreaming of being warm in a world that freezing to death instead of roasting. That why the woman watching her was wearing a heavy sweater.
