Sunday Morning's Wake Up Call!!!!

Alyssa Figueroa, AlterNet
We know fracking has environmental and health damages, but there are other terrifying consequences.
         1. Methane Geysers . . . .

         2. Stolen Land . . . .

         3. Waste-Filled Wine . . . .

        4. Dairy Cows At Risk . . . .

        5. Contaminated Food, Stillborn Calves and Poisoned Animals


AND--YET REPUBLICANS SUCH AS ROMNEY/RYAN/MANDEL AND GOVERNOR KASICH DEFEND THE PRACTICE OF 'FRACKING' WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION--IF THEY ARE PRO-'FRACKING' HOW CAN THEY TRULY BE PRO-LIFE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

The Republicans must know that they can not win the White House--THIS IS An Act Of Desperation!! When You CAN NOT WIN Honestly--Then You Lie, Cheat And Steal!!!
AFTER ALL, WHAT WE REALLY NEED TO DO IS-->

Had we been in a trance? I wanted to shout, "Wake up! Please wake up! Our old future is gone. Matters are urgent. We have to do something now."

We live in a culture of denial, especially about the grim reality of climate change. Sure, we want to savor the occasional shrimp cocktail without having to brood about ruined mangroves, but we can’t solve a problem we can’t face.
I don't like to think about global environmental problems, and neither do you. Yet we can't deal with problems we can't face. Isak Dinesen wrote, "All sorrows can be borne if put into a story." Here's my story. In the cataclysmic summer of 2010, I experienced what environmentalists call the "'Oh shit!' moment." At that time, the earth was experiencing its warmest decade, its warmest year, and the warmest April, May, and June on record. In 2010, Pakistan hit its record high (129 degrees), as did Russia (111 degrees). For the first time in memory, lightning ignited fires in the peat bogs of Russia, and these fires spread to the wheat fields further south. As doctors from Moscow rode to the rescue of heat and smoke victims, they fainted in their non-air-conditioned ambulances. In July, the heat index in my town, Lincoln, Nebraska, reached 115 degrees for several days in a row. Our planet and all living beings seemed to be gasping for breath. That same month, I read Bill McKibben's Eaarth, in which he argues that our familiar Earth has vanished and that we now live on a new planet, Eaarth, with a rapidly changing ecology. He writes that without immediate action, our accustomed ways of life will disappear, not in our grandchildren's adulthoods, but in the lifetimes of middle-aged people alive today. We don't have 50 years to save our environment; we have the next decade.
Nothing I'd previously read about the environment could quite prepare me for the bleakness of Eaarth. I couldn't stop reading, and, when I finished it, I felt shell-shocked. For a few days, all I could experience was despair. Everything felt so hopeless and so finite. . . . .

BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!!!! 



P.S.--> WARNING--WARNING--WARNING!!!

Dear Readers, I am adding this e-mail also, because it is far too important not to be added;

 
ALARMING: Republican voter suppression in AZ, FL, OH and VA! Give right now and we'll match it.
I've never seen such a far-reaching Republican scheme to steal an election. And that's just counting the dirty stuff we know about!
Republican Voter Suppression Nationwide
Arizona: County mails wrong Election Day notice to Spanish-speakers.
Florida: Republicans scam seniors with bogus "vote by phone" calls.
Ohio: Republican defies court order by slashing early voting hours.
Virginia: Republican arrested for illegally trashing registration forms.
All the key races are practically tied. Every suppressed vote puts Republicans an inch closer to defeating President Obama and sweeping the top governors races.
NOT ONE MORE INCH! 7 AM Monday morning we're making final choices about where to spend our resources this week, so we need $34,747 before midnight Sunday to fight all this slimeball stuff.
Seventeen days to go – give right now.
We have to stop these guys. President Obama is counting on us. Don't wait.
