He was and is more than a convenient icon.

Still listening to Evangelicals whom's only conscience is directed by "The End Times" and the gaming of the world to make sure they are saved regardless of the human condition along the way?


Vanity is something (such as a belief or a way of behaving) which shows that you have too much pride in yourself, your social status, etc.

Evangelicals are full of vanity. They are the ONLY way to be a human being. That takes, not humility, but a great deal of vanity.

They have made a great deal of money pretending to be in touch with god while being nothing more than power brokers that back the crudest forms of Wall Street money that exists. That's of god? Could have fooled me.

I thought Pope Francis begs for the poor while discrediting inequality among the classes. He asks for little except a decent quality of life for all peoples. Pope Francis is a man of humility and has demonstrated that since the first day of his Papacy.

Think about it.

Human Induced Global Warming otherwise known to many of my peers as The Climate Crisis.

That reminds me I need to write them a 'reality check' note today.

This is the result of political lies and deceptions. Why is it anyone wanted to believe Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck, but, not Svante August Arrhenius. He was the physicist that discovered the effects of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in relation to climate. You might not recognize his name as he write his equation and law in 1896.

This is his equation and it is still valid scientific law today.

ΔF = α Ln(C/C_0)

Or women like Sallie Louise Baliunas who stated our sun, Sol, was far more consistent in its brightness than surrounding similar stars, so retracing historical variability would be far more difficult and taxing than first estimated. Being an astrophysicist and solar specialist, she entered the Human Induced Global Warming fray in 1995 stating humans were causing their own warming.

Or, Peter H. Gleick, an American scientist working all his professional life on issues of the environment, economic development, international security, and scientific ethics and integrity and the right of every human being to a clean, safe water supply.

Or, James Edward Hansen, the American physicist who conducted the first GISS (NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies) global temperature analysis that was published in 1981. 

And there is Michael E. Mann, the American physicist and climatologist who's emails to friends, associates and peers were hacked for political purposes only to be a real attention getter by the Right Wing Political hacks. Why doesn't someone hack into Hannity's emails and find out exactly the phony he is. 
Dr. Mann perfected the "Hockey Stick Graph" pointing to the incredible increase in carbon dioxide from very reliable data gathered over decades.

And there is Joseph J. Romm an American physicist, as well as author and blogger. He is a climate expert who concentrates on methods of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing energy security through energy efficiencygreen energy technologies and green transportation technologies. He is also still young, only 53 years old. He no doubt can relate to the next two younger generations and the plight they face long after their grandparents and parents pass away. He is very dedicated to making this climate turn around. 

And what about Chris Field, member of the IPCC and founding Director of the Carnegie Institution's Department of Global Ecology, Melvin and Joan Lane Professor for Interdisciplinary Environmental Studies at Stanford University, and Faculty Director of Stanford's Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. His work is dedicated to being aware of the ongoing dangers of climate and chronically tries to find the words that hopefully will not estrange any electorate anywhere in the world. 

There are many, many more scientists to list here who have been responsible over their lifetimes and even someone like Henry Ford who saw the future while admiring the electric car. The list of intelligent, dedicated and damnably correct professionals is long. And every one of them was disregarded, harassed into obscure worlds of their own dedications and findings to publish in peer reviewed journals, while the ignorant media of the First World lied and deceived the electorate and is now responsible for their suffering and death due to climate.

My god, have you no conscience!

Well. I've had enough Christmas to last the next year.

With candy cane in hand I wonder why there are always left over candy canes? Is this like sugar cane from the North Pole?

It never fails. Everyone buys candy canes and hardly anyone eats them.

I am finished with Christmas and it is finished with me. I want to thank my children for growing up. In that I can now feel that feel good feeling of never having to work through midnight to put the wheels on the bike. Bless them they knew not what they did.

On to current events.
