Groundhog Day & The Climate of Fear - 2

Oh no, not again ...
In the first post of this series I was struck by the denialist infiltration of the political process:
"Have you noticed that those who want to be our leaders would not mention the global warming induced climate change during the presidential debates (see New Climate Catastrophe Policy: Triage - 9)?

It had been debated in every presidential debate since 1988 (ibid)."
(Groundhog Day & The Climate of Fear).

When asked why (for the first presidential debate in twenty years) was climate change not discussed in those debates, one observer gave this answer:
This morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Dr. Jeffry Sachs was asked "why didn't the presidential candidates discuss climate change in the debates", to which he replied "they are terrified of the oil companies."
(MOMCOM: The Private Parts - 4, emphasis added). That terrorism is one of the reasons why I call those oil companies "Oil-Qaeda".

They also like to be considered foreign entities:
For example, we focused on the statement of the CEO of ExxonMobil, who declared in an interview, "I am not an American company."
(ibid, emphasis in original, cf. 2nd video below). Oil-Qaeda has been aware of the catastrophic dangers of climate change since well before the 1988 disclosure to congress (Humble Oil-Qaeda, Smoke & Fumes).

That 1988 presidential debate date I mentioned above is not an arbitrary date.

No, it is the very year that the U.S. Senate held global warming related hearings:
The earth has been warmer in the first five months of this year than in any comparable period since measurements began 130 years ago, and the higher temperatures can now be attributed to a long-expected global warming trend linked to pollution, a space agency scientist reported today.

Until now, scientists have been cautious about attributing rising global temperatures of recent years to the predicted global warming caused by pollutants in the atmosphere, known as the ''greenhouse effect.''
(Global Warming Has Begun, Expert Tells Senate, 1988). Interestingly, the Ground Hog Day movie was about a person reliving the same day over and over again, until he eventually tried suicide over and over again (see 1st video below).

Now, two decades later after the 1988 congressional hearings, we are living ground hog day climate change over and over again:
"The earth has been warmer in the first five months of this year than in any comparable period since measurements began 130 years ago ..." (NYT, 1988).

"The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for August 2016 was the highest for August in the 137-year period of record, marking the 16th consecutive month of record warmth for the globe." (NOAA, 2016).
It seems that civilization is stuck in the time warp that Mr. Connors was caught up in during the groundhog day movie.

Also, like with Mr. Connors in that movie, the issue of suicide is also a repeating feature of the global warming predicament:
"In other words, a society does not ever die 'from natural causes', but always dies from suicide or murder --- and nearly always from the former, as this chapter has shown." - A Study of History, by Arnold J. Toynbee

"History repeats itself, and that's one of the things that's wrong with history." - Clarence Darrow
In the case of anthropogenic climate change brought on by Oil-Qaeda, this is sometimes said to be a self-induced situation.

That is a wrong trance (Choose Your Trances Carefully) because Oil-Qaeda is instigating and perpetuating mass murder, which is not a grass roots phenomenon (The Authoritarianism of Climate Change, MOMCOM's Mass Suicide & Murder Pact, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Like the militaristic police (Will The Military Become The Police?, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) who are murdering black lives that matter right before our eyes (Symbolic Racism: A Look At The Science, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11) Oil-Qaeda is on the march against us.

Of course, they do this through their surrogate, which is the damaged global climate system, forged by their greed for money and power  (The Damaged Global Climate System, 2, 3, 4, 5).

They are an implant that is bringing an invasion against all nations and peoples:
The Extinction of Robust Sea Ports, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

The Extinction of Charleston
The Extinction of Philadelphia
The Extinction of Washington, D.C.
The Extinction of Boston
The Extinction of Miami
The Extinction of Manzanillo
The Extinction of Houston
The Extinction of Providence
The Extinction of Chesapeake Bay Islands
This, while they seek to influence governments to just count the bodies and bury them (New Climate Catastrophe Policy: Triage, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12).

"Move along folks, nothing to see here" (except the official threat to national security Oil-Qaeda poses: Green Report, Brad Blog).

Deja Vu all over again ...
