So he said he wants to do infrastructure. "I'm good at building. That's what I do". Pelosi asked him how is he going to pay for it. So he turned around and left the room after three minutes.

A global health guardian: climate change, air pollution, and antimicrobial resistance

Global defences against universal transboundary threats to health, like climate change, air pollution and antimicrobial resistance, depend on WHO’s role as a guardian of public health. This role involves tracking rapidly evolving threats, quantifying the harm to health, and sounding the alarm. WHO also works to raise political awareness and extend advice on the best protective strategies for safeguarding public health. In these – as in many other areas – protective strategies require collaboration with multiple non-health sectors.

we have 10 years, 7 months and 19 days until climate change becomes irreversible. This is not that much time when you think about it, there are so many leaders, politicians, teachers, fathers, mothers, daughters, we need to convince that climate change is REAL and is happening right now!!

People say it is impossible, we won’t stop climate change, but people said it was impossible to go to the moon but NASA believed, people said it was impossible, that there would never be a black president but Obama believed, people said it was impossible to have

Leading climate scientists went through the papers of those who claimed climate change isn’t real and reviewed their data, experiments, algorithms, analysis and conclusions. They found that all of those papers were significantly flawed.

Long back we used to play ice water and when we see today we are still in this game.
We need to understand that it is high time to give a strong concern about climate. It is not happening automatically we are manufacturing it. It will get worse with time if we ignore our environment.
A small step can bring a huge change

Today is us, tomorrow is you.
Every second, we get closer and closer to the future we have set and the
future we have chosen. Unstable governments, population explosion, wars
on every continent, famine, water shortages, environmental pollution,
cities sinking, rivers running dry, cultures disappearing - are we on the
brink of the end?
Driven by my passion for photography, I want to change humanity's view of
the future and the impact of climate change. I lived this first-hand when
ocean waters flooded the house where I was born and raised in the
Mauritanian capital of Nouakchott.
Places that were part of our daily lives and part of our collective
memory are disappearing, and I am photographing the present in the face
of an ominous future. But what if these moments are the future, based on
the words of scientists and the experiences of cities and human souls?
What if my camera were projecting these destined moments?
I imagine these photographs as signals to a monitoring device that
broadcasts to the future - and this device seeks to convi... Show more...
Climate Change “Amplified” Bomb Cyclones, Droughts, Flooding, Heatwaves, Hurricanes And Wildfires Don’t Discriminate Between Democrats And Republicans. Hence, Climate Change Shouldn’t Be A Partisan Issue.

Yet, many republicans paint climate change as a “fake” issue peddled by democrats. Trump and other republicans do this because blocking climate change mitigation benefits coal and oil companies, which make substantial donations to the Republican Party.

Additionally, with climate change treated as a fake issue, republicans can avoid prudent spending on flood control all over the United States. America would have to raise taxes on big business and the wealthy to enhance the flood control areas in America that will be vulnerable to increased flooding over the next few decades.

Please note that rainfall has increased substantially in the Midwest since 1958. Given that human-influenced climate change has been affecting America since 1900, this finding dovetails well with climate change projections.

We have an existential crisis on our hands - we're destroying the natural world that we depend on for our own survival. It's not too late to make meaningful changes, but it looks like governments aren't going to take the action needed, so the people are going to have to force them to.

I am trying to get Parisians to pronounce "Seine" so as to rhyme with "rain" (like in that Nancy Sinatra/Lee Hazelwood song).

The Hatch Act keeps partisan politics out of the federal workplace. Should it keep civil servants from talking about impeachment or using the #resist hashtag?

My Experience Being Drugged and Raped by Members of a Megachurch in 1991

by RJ in 206 (Seattle).

I was apparently, obviously, raped in 1991 during an all-night church youth group outing which started at Overlake Christian Church (OCC) in Redmond, WA, one that I wasn’t told would be all-night. I say it was apparent and obvious because I was drugged unconscious, but suffered an injury from it, and the memories surrounding that injury make it obvious what happened.

It may be painful to read. But when people don’t want to hear or believe us hurts us victims too, so, read on, please - if you can handle it.

I thought I’d be going home afterwards. I was invited by a friend from school, one whose father had previously given me a porn tape. He made me promise not to tell my parents it was from him. At the time I didn’t understand what a red flag that was. I’ll call that friend Gaston - not his real name.

It began on a Friday night, at OCC with a huge event featuring performances and attended by at least hundreds of kids, in... Show more...

Waiting for the Spark
As far as the spark, a move against #Trump is good bet. The glue that keeps things from flying apart right now is #middle-class white people, who still have faith in the political system....They will tolerate just about anything, as long as they think they can fight the other side within the system. An effort to remove Trump or even #silence his advocates, could be a spark that gets these people into the streets.

Extra-political efforts to ban guns are another possible spark. The coordinated efforts to cut off #gun-makers from the financial system is not unnoticed by the #2A peo

The communist, marxist, socialist "liberal" left has been selling women victim-hood as "empowerment" for decades.
Remember Women: It's not your fault you are being sold a LIE, (it's all (((they))) know how to do), it's the fact that you willingly BUY into it without question that's the problem. #resist #dogma #emotionalism #victimology #epicfail #logic #reason #research #history #ftw
