Climate Change is here to stay, what are we going to do about it.

Quote~“As we stand at the brink of a second nuclear age and a period of unprecedented climate change, scientists have a special responsibility, once again to inform the public and to advise leaders about the perils that humanity faces,” he said. “As scientists we understand the dangers of nuclear weapons and their devastation effects, and we are learning how human activities and technologies are affecting climate systems in ways that may forever change life on Earth. - Stephen Hawking English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

The science deniers, dumb shit heads, say it isn't happening. Who are the science deniers? The usual suspects, Fox make believe news, GOP the gay old party, Lamar Smith the Republican chairman of the House Science Committee, the Koch brothers and everyone in the oil and coal industry.  What a bunch of coconuts.  They are not that stupid, I hope. They deny climate change for profit, and self interest.  They are sacrificing the planet for future generations.  History will be their judge.

“Scientists are more certain than they have ever been that humans are causing climate change and believe that sea levels could rise by up to 2ft 8in by the end of the century.
These are among the key findings likely to be published next month in the most authoritative and comprehensive report ever conducted into climate science - the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) fifth assessment, known as AR5. “ Tom Bowden, The Independent

Foxworld, is seen as full of "scary black men"

“As you grow older, you'll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don't you forget it - whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, he is trash.” 
― Harper LeeTo Kill a Mockingbird

Racist FOX Make believe News 
The bastards are so transparent you can see what they ate.  The following piece by Priscilla says it all.  Fox likes to paint everyone with the same brush, especially if it is Black people or other minorities.  Do these neolithic morons think that the minorities in America don't see them for what they are?  Actually minorities is wrong because when you put all the minorities together they become the majority, and that scares the shit out of the GOP, the right wing Tea Party, the evangelical radical right and FOX dick heads. 

Fox and; Friends' Newest 'Scary Black Man' Race Card: "Racist Tweets" Posted by on August 22, 2013
In sowing hatred towards a German minority, Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels painted the Jews as a dark and menacing "other." Fox News takes a page from that playbook in sowing hatred towards "the other." For Fox, this includes the African-American community which, in Foxworld, is seen as full of "scary black men" who are constantly making life miserable for white folks who are all law abiding. Fox also takes a page from Orwell in creating an alternate reality in which it's really black people who are racist. Part of this reality involves the meme that President Obama, because, as a black man, he weighed in on the Trayvon Martin, is required to comment whenever a white person is harmed by a black man. Predictably, Fox & Friends is using the killing of Chris Lane to further this narrative - even going so far as to ID the alleged perps as black when one is white. This morning, they continued to play the race card with the newest thing making the rounds of racist, hate sites; i.e. the black accused murderer sent racist tweets. And that begs the question of whether these defenders of white America have EVER READ THE RACIST CRAP on Fox Nation!.

Quote~Every citizen of this country should be guaranteed that 
their vote matters, that their vote is counted, and that in the voting booth, 
their vote has a much weight as that of any CEO, any member 
of Congress, or any President.  Barbara Boxer

"Well, I'm going to be real honest with you. The Republican Party doesn't want black people to vote if they're going to vote nine to one for Democrats." 
Ken Emanuelson, a Tea Party activist with deep connections to the Dallas County Republican Party

Poor, blacks, Hispanics, college students, senior citizens,
fuck off, you can't vote!
If you are black, Hispanic, poor, a senior citizen or a college student the GOP wants to make it harder for you to vote. They are passing new identification laws. The GOP wants to prevent, Hispanics, seniors, blacks, college students and the poor from voting. In fact, in their heart of hearts, they probably want to make the vote only for white men of property. The states with GOP controlled legislators have a new strategy and that is voter suppression. The lie is to prevent voter fraud. There has been virtually miniscule voter fraud in America, maybe 3 suspected cases in the last national election (Republicans who were cheating). The GOP wants to stop any voters who didn't vote for them in the past. They want to steal this democracy. The GOP wants to hijack elections because they realize that they, the GOP, have no credibility with the poor, minorities, seniors and college students in America.
The battle for voter rights begins again. Americans across this country are realizing that the GOP is narrow, racist, intolerant and discriminatory. This battle was fought forty years ago and if necessary it will be fought again. Let the battle begin.

Republicans Take America Back (To the 19th Century) By Cutting Education and Paved Roads By: RmuseAug. 22Nd, 2013 Politicus USA
Americans are witnessing firsthand the long-intended consequences of Republican economic policy that favors corporations and the rich to make room to drastically scale back services and programs that serve 98% of the people, but the damage on the national level pales in comparison to Republican-controlled states. Indeed, when Democratic voter apathy and opposition to President Obama’s inability to grant every whim of many on the left prompted them to sit out the 2010 midterms, it gave Republican governors the power they needed to take their states back to conditions typical of 19th century America. For four-and-a-half years teabaggers and hardline conservatives decried the 21st century and claimed their intent to “take our country back,” and their calls have been answered with the systematic demolition of the public education system and for Texas residents, the loss of paved roads.
