Say a prayer for California

Just a couple degrees warmer can make a big difference

Sunday, October 27, 2019 by Chasbo | Discussion: The Environment

I have relatives and friends in California. I feel very bad for all of them. All of California. Whatever you think about the changing weather it seems pretty clear to me that the situation in California has been made drastically worse by humans.

Take a moment and say a prayer for California.

If you are not religious, then yes, of course prayers for California is ineffectual.  I am religious, but I am willing to team up with anyone who is not in order to take action.   Heck, if Calexit goes through, I will move there.

I currently live in California and the situation is truly horrific in southern Cali, where I am not. The black plague has an active presence in southern California because of the trash in the streets along with human waste. You know... the plague that wiped out half the population of Europe in the what we call the "dark ages." Rats infest the entire state.  It's because the state doesn't care about the huge homeless problem here. Every city in California has a homeless population but southern Cali is the worst by far. Sacramento is also very very bad. People who are not homeless but get bitten by fleas in LA are getting diseases that haven't had a presence in the USA on a large scale before. A city attorney in LA sued the city for about 5 million because she was bitten by a flea and got typhus! It's worse than a third world country in many places here.

In northern California you need to make about $30/hour working full time just to qualify for a studio apartment if you live by yourself. Minimum wage here is $12/hour. Many other States you can get a mortgage on a house and pay $400-$600 a month. To rent a room out of someone's house in California costs about $1,000-$2,000 a month depending on which part of the State you live in.

 

LA garbage pile up.

The West Coast is entering into a weather cycle that is going to destroy their water supply when it doesnt rain for DECADES! Whether or not Climate Change is Real We Know there is a reason it is Burning and the Main Culprit is Democrats lack of Forest Management! According to NASA and NOAA there has been NO CHANGE in Storm Frequency or Severity! We Have to restore the Natural Tree Canopy to Restore the Water Cycle to Normal! Water is evaporating before it has a chance to refill the Aquifers that are Several Feet Below Normal! We are talking 1 degree Celsius in a 100 years! No Current Climate Models Come Even Close to what we are seeing! The air we breath is MUCH CLEANER than it was when I was a Child! 70's We no longer talk about SMOG!

Thread has gone political so it has gone into 'Politics' Sub-Forum.

Thank You Democrat Party!

Facts: 57% of the forests in California are owned and managed by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. 40% are owned privately and a Just 3% by the state. So what the hell are you talking about?

Most of the fires are not even burning in the forests.

I can't stand ignorance.

Oh and it's The Democratic Party. Get it right or don't say anything.

"Wednesday, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore pleaded with Democrats to 

“reach across the turkey” during their Thanksgiving meals and explain

to their conservative family members how Democratic policies will benefit them."

 

One of the liberal policies in action in California is saving money

by no longer using the sewer system, we just use the street.

Getting conservatives elected is another example of liberal policies in action.

From reply #18

"I know full well that the what California needs, what the whole world needs is a complete reversal 

of the path that led us to rely on fossil fuels for our energy needs. Prayers aren't going to do that,

only a concerted effort by the worlds governments. Our federal government, currently, won't even acknowledge

that climate change is a problem. This will go down in history as a big mistake and is pretty stupid."

End  reply #18

Did a concerted effort by the world's governments do away with the use of camera film?

Companies free to innovate with out governments getting involved is the solution.

Lorena Gonzalez,do you want to save the planet from carbon or not?

Elon Musk can't save the planet if he can't build electric cars.
