Burn, Baby, Burn; And Not A Drop To Drink!
If it's not one thing, it's another!
By Ernest Stewart
"The Lake fire, which is 10% contained, continues to rage in Barton Flats as it consumes thousands of drought-stricken trees and burns east toward forestland, there are no reports of fire in this area in 104 years of record-keeping." ~~~ Lyn Sieliet ~ spokeswoman for the U.S. Forest Service.
Meanwhile, out West, from California to Alaska, due to rising temperatures and lack of rain, this looks to be the worst fire season ever -- which is saying something as last year in California they had over 7800 fires, causing a billion dollars worth of damage; and this year looks to be worse than that, with one fire alone, the "Lake Fire" consuming over 26,000 acres so far.
Up in Alaska, where their global warming is going gangbusters, there're currently 121 fires burning out of control; and, once the peat moss catches fire, they'll be next to impossible to put out; and, since the permafrost has melted, this looks to be their worst fire season ever!
Meanwhile, in Washington, global warming is being totally ignored with our Sin-ators and Con-gressmen focusing on cutting the taxes for the obscenely rich and cutting programs for the poor! While the rest of the world is fully aware of the problem, and is trying to do what they can to stop global warming. After several thousand died in heat~waves in India in May, their government has called global warming the cause and effect for the heat waves.
It's not that those congressional critters don't have the facts; they do; but choose to ignore them. For example, there's a new report from NASA that states that thanks to global warming, the worlds groundwater is running out! Over a decade-long study of 37 major aquifers worldwide, 21 of them, including the Indus Basin, which supplies much of India's water, showed a depletion of supply.
"The potential consequences are pretty scary," NASA scientist Matthew Roddell, a lead author of the study says. "At some point, those aquifers will run dry."If that was all that global warming was doing, it'd be bad enough; but those are just two little pieces of the puzzle of the global warming disaster; and as long as we continue to turn our backs to it, it'll only get worse. Like in Florida, which continues to ignore the problem; but when the polar ice caps all melt, most all of Florida will be under water, begging the question, "How long can you tread water, America?"

We get by with a little help from our friends!
So please help us if you can...?
So how do you like Bush Lite so far?
And more importantly, what are you planning on doing about it?
Until the next time, Peace!
