|"Climate Change has always existed"|
That series concerned the policy "let's shut down the proactive government response" to the damage being done to the Global Climate System.
That series also points out that as a result of having no active response to stopping the polluting of the Earth or the The Sixth Mass Extinction, the government is left with only a policy of triage.
Triage is the policy of dealing only with the results, while ignoring the cause.
That policy represents a senseless lack of leadership, but more than that, the choosing of the triage easy way out did not work out to shield the denialists in the congress from exposure to ridicule because of their response to Hurricane Superstorm Sandy.
That triage response from a lot of neoCons in congress was "let them eat cake."
In this series we are pointing out loudly that the government now has the latest scientific reports it mandated by law, in 1990.
Official reports that expose lack of action by government, and reveal that there are criminally negligent minds within the government.
In the first post of this series Dredd Blog pointed out, among other things, these statements about the report:
A 60-person Federal Advisory Committee (The "National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee" or NCADAC) has produced a report.(Government Climate Change Report). And Dredd Blog quoted the following directly from the report:
The report concerns civilization's green house gas pollution which causes global warming induced climate change (you can download the large PDF report here).
Thirteen federal agencies took part in producing various aspects of the current report.
Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present. This report of the National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory Committee concludes that the evidence for a changing climate has strengthened considerably since the last National Climate Assessment report, written in 2009. Many more impacts of human-caused climate change have now been observed.(ibid). The members of congress who become ignorance generators because Oil-Qaeda contributes to their election campaigns are criminally negligent or criminally insane (The Criminally Insane Epoch Arises).
Anyway, to top off that report quoted from above, another major scientific report also hit the bricks very recently:
Overall, the 2012 average temperature across global land and ocean surfaces ranked among the 10 warmest years on record.The global land surface temperature alone was also among the 10 warmest on record.(State of the Climate in 2012). The response of the criminally negligent government politicians is to beef up FEMA so they can triage what Oil-Qaeda is doing to us with their help (Barry & Oil-Qaeda vs Arctic Wilderness).
Atmospheric CO2 concentrations increased by 2.1 ppm in 2012, to 392.6 ppm. In spring 2012, for the first time, the atmospheric CO2 concentration exceeded 400 ppm at 7 of the 13 Arctic observation sites. Globally, other greenhouse gases including methane and nitrous oxide also continued to rise in concentration and the combined effect now represents a 32% increase in radiative forcing over a 1990 baseline.
