Larry Kudlow Colors New U.N. Report On Climate Change As A 'Scare Tactic' 14.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Donald Trump's economic advisor bashed the United Nations for over-hyping and overestimating the effects of climate change in their new report on ABC's THIS WEEK . Larry Kudlow claims he's not a climate change denier but threw in words like "scare tactic" while claiming he wasn't using words like "scare tactic" to describe how he feels about the flashing red light that is the new United Nations report. The NY Times writes : The report , issued on Monday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of scientists convened by the United Nations to guide world leaders, describes a world of worsening food shortages and wildfires, and a mass die-off of coral reefs as soon as 2040 — a period well within the lifetime of much of the global population. But in Kudlow's mind, we should all take a pause and keep researching the issue because it's difficult. (Transcript via ABC News ...

Today Is A Good Time To Take To Florida Voters About Climate Change 10.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Hurricane Michael strengthened into a Category 4 storm early on Wednesday. The storm is expected to plow into Florida's Gulf shore with towering waves and roof-shredding winds as 500,000 people were under evacuation orders and advisories. The very dangerous storm strengthened as it moved north over the Gulf of Mexico and by 8 a.m. ET it was carrying top winds of 145 miles per hour (230 km per hour), the National Hurricane Center said. Dear Florida voters, Can we talk? I know you're busy right now, what with another monster storm about to hit. You're more concerned with boarding up your property and getting ready for power outages -- unless you've won the hurricane lottery and you've already had to evacuate. Are you tired yet? You've had eight years of Gov. Rick Scott, a man so beholden to corporate fossil fuel interests that he actually forbade members of his administration to write or say the words "climate change." And what did you get in ...

Hurricane Sandy and the Inequalities of Resilience in New York 5.10.2018 American Prospect
As the Carolinas continue to grapple with the physical damage and psychological trauma from Hurricane Florence, the region faces difficult choices. Communities must decide which lands and neighborhoods to reclaim and rebuild and which ones are best left to absorb the ravages of intensifying storms. Those decisions will play out very differently depending on the race and the income of the individuals and families hit hardest by the historic flooding. In 2012, Hurricane Sandy slammed a very different region of the country: the Rockaways section of New York. But the aftermath of that historic storm provides some sobering clues about post-hurricane resilience efforts—like the ones that didn’t really help the Rockaways’ low-income residents and people of color. Most visitors to Manhattan or Brooklyn know little about the Rockaways. The finger-like Rockaway Peninsula runs approximately nine miles off the southeast end of Queens. Less than a mile across at its widest, the peninsula is flanked on one side by ...
