Here are three links which will help inform you about the current state of climate change and the politics involved.

This is 15 graphs from the recent report

This is a short read that covers the politics

This is a link to the full report if you want to dig deeper

I of course feel that these links show even more reason to do all we can to keep the GOP from power.

if you suggest effective action that could harm the GOP you will be attacked on this site

You're not allowed to criticize FLAKESnews, without claiming that every other news service is exactly the same.

I just tell the truth and they think it is criticism.

I think folks are folks I think to myself, what kind of rules would keep me from taking over if I was rich enough then I figure we need at least those to cover the folks that are at least as smart as me, and some folks are smarter so a few more rules on top of that would be good.

Trolls, puppets and bots, don't want no conversation on global warming.

Do you have anything on Clinton? Benghazi maybe?

Lather, rinse, repeat.

There is nothing new under their sun.

Excellent graph.

This sight is pretty good at getting clarity out regarding climate & elections.
