Trucks not your thing? Don't like the look of the Tesla Model X? Here's an all electric SUV from the same company that is coming out with the truck.

For those that like seafood or live in the NE:

The study projects that Atlantic cod hatchling numbers around Norway and Iceland will decline 60 percent if temperatures warm more than 3 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial times—considered likely in the second half of this century if greenhouse gas emissions aren't cut back significantly—
Quote:
The new research also dovetails with information in the recent National Climate Assessment. It describes how "warming water temperatures in the Gulf of Maine exacerbated overfishing of Gulf of Maine cod, and the subsequent low quotas have resulted in socioeconomic stress in New England."
Quote:
A recent heat wave in the Gulf of Alaska sent a shock through the Pacific cod population as well, with cod numbers dropping so much in 2016 and 2017 that fisheries managers cut the quota by 80 percent in 2018.

While GM is cutting thousands of jobs, Tesla is creating them. If politicians want to talk about creating jobs for Americans, they should look no further...

"Tesla's battery factory in northern Nevada has created more than 7,000 jobs - 40 percent more than promised - and an additional 8,200 jobs in other local businesses since it opened east of Reno in 2014."

Guys, I've only had my car for 3 weeks now, but I fucking love it. No complaints. Not one. Even driving at 35 mph it's a joy and so smooth. I have enough range to go all over the DFW metroplex on one charge - From my home to work in Dallas, then to Allen, and then all the way back home. I plug in a night when I get home and wake up with a full charge again.

Every time I drive by a gas station now, I do this:

The main take-away from this article and everything else happening, is that our children's and grandchildren's world is going to look very different than what we live in now.

We've already killed 60% of the world species.....

Without this insulating snow, the soil freezes deeper and longer, damaging the trees' shallow roots.
Quote:
Global Change Biology warns that without the snowpack, maple trees are projected to grow about 40 percent slower.
Worst-Case Scenario:
Quote:
the amount of northeastern forest with snowpack could shrink by 95 percent by the end of the century — from 33,000 square miles to just 2,000,
Lower-case Scenario:
Quote:
the snowpack-covered area could still decline by 49 percent, to 16,500 square miles, says lead study author Andrew Reinmann, a forest ecologist at the City University of New York.

"So if you like skiing, go now," he says.

If I am right, if Tony Seba is right, if a disruption is what is happening right now, then ICE car sales are going to collapse within a couple more years. This collapse will be faster than legacy auto companies will be able to handle the loss of revenue. GM and Ford are right now at risk of following Kodak into the American history books.

Six years later, we have marked the 1,000th divestment in what has become by far the largest anti-corporate campaign of its kind. The latest to sell their shares – major French and Australian pension funds, and Brandeis University in Massachusetts – bring the total size of portfolios and endowments in the campaign to just under $8 trillion (£6.4tn).
Quote:
just a few weeks ago analysts at that radical collective Goldman Sachs said the “divestment movement has been a key driver of the coal sector’s 60% de-rating over the past five years”.

We are supposed to be the smartest species on this planet right? So what are we going to do? Are we going to let our gov't continue to be manipulated by the fossil fuel industry or each and every one of us change our behavior by switching to EVs, use solar panels and battery storage, to show collectively that we want a healthy planet to live on and a different future for those that come after us?

The authors write that the combination of those two factors—warming water and low oxygen—“can account for more than half the magnitude of the ‘Great Dying'” in the ocean.
Quote:
Here’s how the authors got their result: While scientists had long guessed a warming climate played a part in the Great Dying, they hadn’t come up with a way to prove it. In order to test the theory, the team simulated ancient global warming with a model of Earth’s climate and predicted how ocean warming and oxygen loss would affect where ancient marine species could survive, based on the tolerance levels of animals alive today, including fish, crustaceans, sharks, corals, and mollusks. It wasn’t a perfect model (no model is), but it served as an approximation of how sensitive ancient species may have been to a warming climate at the time. Then, to see how the model stood up, they compared it with the fossil record.

It performed spectacularly.
