National Climate Report: US Climate Change Is Bad, Will Worsen especially in the west, reports Carolyn Lochhead at the San Francisco Chronicle. “The real bottom line of this report is that climate change is not a distant threat, but is already affecting every region of the country and key sectors of the economy,” President’s Science Advisor John Holdren said. The report discusses US regional impacts, withworsening storms, droughts and heat waves, heavier downpours, more flooding and rising seas occurring and worsening in the future.

OO US Climate Already Changed: The US is already overheating (and cooling) as climate change brings more extreme weather. Via the New York Times.

“This is the loudest and clearest alarm bell to date signaling the need to take urgent action.” Holdren added. Republicans call the report “alarmist.” Dear, dear, someone clean the wax out of their ears — it’s alarmING, not alarmist.

Think about it, the next time you VOTE.

OO April Becomes 1st Month With CO2 Levels Above 400 PPM – oh-oh….

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
