Hot Damn!

The ever popular Stinky Donald informs us that Global Warming is a Chinese conspiracy.

Stinky Donald carries the stench of rancid food!

"Every one of the past 40 years has been warmer than the 20th century average.
2016 was the hottest year on record.
The 12 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1998."

Learn more (if you can learn): Concerned Scientists

However, IMO, it will take more than 10,000 heat related deaths inside the USA - and perhaps 100,000 - before Stinky Donald will pay the slightest bit of attention. (Is he autistic?)

By the time Stinky Donald takes notice (if he has any ability to do so) it will be far too late. We may be well beyond "the tipping point."

There is a "worst case scenario" that scientists (oops! that lets out trumpsters) discuss.

How bad is bad? Ask KCET (TV).

San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose will all be without airports.

LA declared a local emergency two weeks ago to authorize out-of-budget spending for equipment and experts to prevent catastrophic flooding at Owens Lake and along the 200-plus miles of the Los Angeles Aqueduct. Highway 395 and downstream communities like Bishop and Independence are most vulnerable to severe flooding (and North Fresno?). The Eastern Sierra snow pack, is 241 percent of average. An accelerated melt (due to unseasonably HIGH TEMPERATURES) is expected to dump as much as 1 million acre feet of additional water into the aqueduct and the Owens dry lake bed about 200 miles north of Los Angeles.
