I'm used to hearing about North American forest fires in our summer and Australian fires in theirs, like taking turns. It's disorienting, even overwhelming, to have The American West, Canadian North…Continue

Ruth, I agree, an otherwise excellent report lost credibility by using scare tactics. We don't need that. We need accurate information, and reasonable discussion about what we can expect to happen, and how to prepare for the possibility of giant storms.
Use information, not fear, to get the attention of the public.
And for goodness sake, don't rebuild coastal and floodplain damages; move out of the way because we can't build high enough sea walls or levies.

Is climate change ‘rampaging our planet?’

“Climate change is rampaging our planet, our region, and our communities like an unstoppable freight train that has gone off the tracks,”  ”We are no longer looking at a ‘predicted’ future of possible highly variable extreme weather conditions and catastrophic events. That future is here now.

“Climate instability has impacts that do and will continue to affect each one of us. Our pocketbooks, food supply, environment and ecology, human health and our social structures will bear the increasingly undisguised and festering scars of this careening train.”

Jay Burney, founder Learning Sustainability Campaign

Great news, Joan. I should write to my local government suggesting they do the same to their municipal worker's pension fund.

Seattle Mayor Calls For Divesting City Pension Funds From Fossil Fuels

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn is now calling on his city to strip fossil fuels from its two main pension funds.
