Tuesday Evening--It is not just about me or this blog--IT IS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET THAT WE CALL EARTH/HOME.

With more than half the country in some state of drought, farmers are feeling the impact on their livelihood and consumers could expect to feel a hit in their wallet when they go to the supermarket soon, experts say. FULL STORY

Global Warming/Global Climate Change is indeed For Real--It is caused by the excess of carbon in the atmosphere, which is caused by the burning of Fossil Fuels, such as Coal.


The war over coal is personal

Amanda Sedgmer, with her kids in Hopedale, Ohio, worries about the survival of the coal industry and her family's way of life.(CNN) -- Amanda Sedgmer, mother of five and daughter of coal country, believes that in this presidential election, her way of life is at stake.
"If you ask anybody in the coal industry what would happen if Obama is re-elected, they'd say the coal industry is done," said Sedgmer, whose husband, Ryan, is a coal miner and whose family has depended on the industry for at least four generations.
Sedgmer lives in Hopedale, Ohio, which sits on top of one of the state's richest coal deposits. For nearly a century here, mining has been one of the few professions guaranteeing a good and consistent salary. . . .

Apparently all this mother and her daughters care about are they themselves--not anyone else--NOT EVEN THEIR FATHER/HUSBAND! After all, a Green Energy Job would be far more safer than his coal job, between the health hazard of breathing in the coal dust and the ever increasing risk of cave ins. No to forget, the well being of the rest of Humanity would deeply and serverely be effected by Global Climate Change/Global Warming---WHICH IS ANOTHER REMINDER OF THE REAL QUESTIONS OF THIS ELECTION--ARE YOU SELFISH ENOUGH--ARE YOU  GREEDY ENOUGH--DO YOU HATE ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR REPUBLICAN?????

IF ONLY WE COULD TEACH THIS MOTHER AND HER DAUGHTERS AND OTHERS LIKE THEM TO CARE ABOUT--->

More Americans Believe Climate Change is Real

More Americans Believe Climate Change is RealSummer 2012 is breaking all sorts of records.  On the bright side, one benefit of extreme weather is that it wakes people up to the fact the climate is changing.  Record high summer temperatures gripping most of the continental U.S. and severe drought conditions appear to be helping Americans connect the dots between climate change and their daily life.  The big question, however, remains: what are we going to do about it?
In a recent poll conducted by the Washington Post and Stanford University, six in 10 say global weather patterns have become unstable in the past three years and almost as many say average temperatures were higher during the past three years than previously. The poll went on to say that “55% said a ‘great deal’ or ‘good amount’ can be done to reduce future global warming. At the same time, 60% of those polled say it will be extremely or very difficult for people to stop [global warming].”  Interestingly, two-thirds of those polled mentioned that they want the United States to be a world leader addressing [global warming], even if other major industrial countries do not pitch in.”. . .

DEAR READERS,I AM PASSING ON THIS E-MAIL WITH THE HOPE AND PRAYER THAT MORE PEOPLE CARE ABOUT  FUTURE  GENERATIONS THAN ABOUT SELFISH GAIN--SO FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION;
KXL
This is it. For more than a year, we’ve worked together to stage protests, grab media attention, educate our legislators and communities, and send hundreds of thousands of messages to stop the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline – and the Obama Administration has listened! They rejected this dangerous project and promised us that the State Department would do a full review of the environmental impacts of this dirty pipeline should it come up again.
Now TransCanada is back with a new proposal to build this disastrous pipeline, so it’s time for the State Department to make good on their promise. And we need your help to make sure they do.
The last time that the State Department did this type of review – before President Obama wisely rejected the risky pipeline – they came up way short. They claimed that this project would have “no significant impact” on the nearby environment even though all kinds of studies have shown that there will be major environmental consequences if we allow this dirty pipeline to be built. This time around, they can change their tune, but only if we call on them to give us a totally new and thorough investigation.
It’s time for our government to reject this dangerous project once and for all. We know that this dirty pipeline would put the water supply of millions of Americans at risk, hasten the destruction of Canada's boreal forest, and accelerate harmful climate change since tar sands create even more global warming pollution than traditional oil production – without lowering gas prices or increasing U.S. energy security. With the effects of climate change already causing hardship to families across America, we simply can’t afford to let this disastrous project through. But if we want the State Department to acknowledge these facts and say no to this destructive pipeline, we need to speak out NOW.
This is our best chance to win this fight. So thank you for taking action and forwarding our message on to your friends and family today.
Best,

AFTER ALL, THERE IS SUCH A THING AS REUSABLE/GREEN ENERGY!!!! WE DO HAVE THE CAPACITY TO INVENT--EVEN IF WE DID NOT HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE TO CREATE NEW ENERGY SOURCES--WE WOULD STILL BE BETTER ABLE TO SURVIVE WITHOUT ENERGY, PREVIOUS GENERATION HAVE--THAN WITHOUT WATER--AFTER ALL, DID ANYONE EVER HEAR OF A SOCIETY THAT HAS OR IS SURVIVING WITHOUT WATER--WITHOUT WATER TO DRINK OR TO WATER CROPS WITH--WITH DYING OF DEHYDRATION AND/OR STARVATION?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
