New Climate Catastrophe Policy: Triage - 11

Sea level rise "floats" all boats
Back in 2009, when I started this series with the first post, it was done in the vain hope that government would take note as others did (e.g. Green Economy Post).

And I hoped the government would do something constructive and even Earth shaking.

The series has lots of posts now (New Climate Catastrophe Policy: Triage, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10), but as MOMCOM makes war globally and habitually, America's focus on repairing or preparing itself is declining:
Here are some staggering statistics: Since 2006, state and local real investment in highways and streets has fallen by 22%. Their spending on
Sea level rise divides America
sewer systems, in real terms, is also down by 22%. And real investment by state and local governments in water systems has fallen by a stunning 34% (chart below).

Meanwhile, over the same period, private real investment by telecommunications and broadcasting companies is up by 13%, according to statistics from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Why, then, does President Obama want to load yet another spending burden–muni broadband–on localities that are already stretched too thin to cover their existing obligations?
(Marginal Revolution). The answer or reason is that they are addicted to propaganda expansion, and further, they must have misread reality, misunderestimated it, or the Epigovernment forbade any action on it (Agnotology: The Surge - 14).

Triage is still the basic government response to the approaching catastrophe problem, yes, the best response they can "think" of to date.

That is because they are confused by "You Are Here" psychology, and they also suffer from chronic failure to heed "Choose Your Trances Carefully."

Thus, the following information is, like lost airliners on crude approach toward the mainstream presstitute corps landing zone (inbox), lost in space.

The problem is that they literally can not or will not believe or receive it in any meaningful manner:
Paul Beckwith, a climatology and meteorology professor at the University of Ottawa, Canada, is an engineer and physicist who researches abrupt climate change in both the present day and in the paleoclimatology records of the deep past.

"It is my view that our climate system is in early stages of abrupt climate change that, unchecked, will lead to a temperature rise of 5 to 6 degrees Celsius [9 to 10.8 degrees Fahrenheit] within a decade or two," Beckwith told me. "Obviously, such a large change in the climate system will have unprecedented effects on the health and well-being of every plant and animal on our planet [yes, Gomer, that includes human beings]."
(Truthout, emphasis added). Triage is evolving or morphing into the spectre of both Epigovernment and government officials hiding out a la the movie 2012, but leaving the rest of us to the elements:
The movie "2012" is utterly unscientific, in terms of the science of the Sun and the Earth, however, it is quite accurate in terms of political science.

In that movie, the elites of the plutocracy (the 1%) saved themselves while letting the hoi polloi (99%) die off en masse.

Have you read about all the "undisclosed locations", "hardened sites", and "bunkers deep inside mountains", where the elites will go when trouble arises?
(New Climate Catastrophe Policy: Triage - 5). We have missed all of those surreptitious machinations somehow, while our parental transference psychology was somehow morphing into Stockholm Syndrome.

Meanwhile, the year 2014 was the hottest on record globally in the past 135 years:
The year 2014 was the warmest year across global land and ocean surfaces since records began in 1880. The annually-averaged temperature was 0.69°C (1.24°F) above the 20th century average of 13.9°C (57.0°F), easily breaking the previous records of 2005 and 2010 by 0.04°C (0.07°F). This also marks the 38th consecutive year (since 1977) that the yearly global temperature was above average. Including 2014, 9 of the 10 warmest years in the 135-year period of record have occurred in the 21st century. 1998 currently ranks as the fourth warmest year on record.
(NASA, see also NOAA). The "party-of-stupid" (Gov. Jindal R-LA) has this to say about it:
Once upon a time the Earth was flat, causing the stars and planets to orbit around it, because it was also the center of the universe.

Weather on the flat Earth was stable, in that, it was always either winter, summer, fall, or spring at the same time on the vast flatness.

Then the Earth was changed into a globe by librul scientists.

So, all those planets went into orbit around stars like our Sun, and now even the stars are no longer orbiting the Earth.

Additionally, ever since the Earth became no longer flat, instead becoming a globe orbiting the Sun, there has been both summer and winter at the same time on Earth.

For example, now as we speak “it” has been threating to become 122 deg. F. (50 deg. C) in Australia, while “it” is super cold at the very same time in the flat lands in the U.S. Midwest.

Stay aware, or become, enlightened about how this happened.

  1. I saw the film: "The G8 nations, plus China, are building nine enormous arks, capable of carrying 100,000 people each ... Critical funding is raised by selling tickets for €1 billion per person for a handful of seats..." (link)

    The 1% and elite politicians save themselves.

    See ya later alligator for the rest of us.
