One In 10 Florida Homes Could Be Doomed From Sea Rise Or Something

This is your fault NBC2’s fault, for refusing to give up their use of fossil fueled vehicles to gather the news, and all the electricity used to broadcast the news

Rising seas threaten Florida, and there’s little action from Rick Scott or Tallahassee

One out of 10 Florida homes could be subject to almost daily flooding by the end of the century, according to a new report by The Union of Concerned Scientists.

The culprit is rising sea levels resulting from climate change.

The report suggests Florida stands to be affected more than any other state.

Predictions by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show up to 6.5 feet of sea level rise by 2100.

An increase of that magnitude would cost billions of dollars to the state and local governments in lost property values.

Yet, surprisingly, people keep buying homes at the beach, including climate change big wigs.

But, really, this avoids actual data. Here’s Naples, which NBC2 covers

That’s a whole lot less than 6.5 feet in the next 82 years, eh? And the rest of the Florida stations are similar. I wonder why the Credentialed Media never offers any actual readings? Key West goes back to 1913, and shows .79 feet per 100 years. Inconvenient.

Good News: ‘Climate Change’ (scam) To Send Crocs South In Australia

Because things should never, ever change on Earth, which has been utterly static for billions of years, you know

Crikey! Crocs heading south and other changes forecast for Australia’s wildlife

The chances of limiting climate change appear to be growing slimmer by the day — and this may have big implications for Australia’s wildlife.

Recently a number of crocodiles have been trapped in the Mary River, just 105 kilometres north of Noosa and 250km south of their usual range.

Irukandji jellyfish too, appear to be expanding south, with 10 suspected stings near Fraser Island and a child stung at Mooloolaba last year.

Numerous tropical fish have been recorded up to 1,000 kilometres south of their traditional range, such as the Great Barrier Reef’s lemon-peel angelfish which turned up on Lord Howe Island in 2009, and habitat-modifying sea urchins have landed in Tasmania.

How dare these animals move!!!! And this is all your fault for refusing to ride a bicycle to work and pay more taxes. Because the earth has never ever warmed before!

But there is uncertainty about whether the recent instances of crocodiles in southern waters is climate related or due to increasing numbers.

Crocodile populations have dramatically recovered from the brink of extinction since the 1970s, and the need for new territory may push some individuals to move outside their natural range.

A Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES) spokesperson said they currently “don’t have evidence” to suggest crocodiles are expanding south.

But it’s totally going to happen, people! They know this! Because they have great crystal balls computer models!

Media Attempts To Bash Trump For Featuring Families Of People Killed By Illegal Aliens

Funny how this same media never seemed to consider Barack Obama using all sorts of families in his pushes, such as to take over the health insurance and health care sectors, problematic

Trump answers critics of family separation policy with Americans ‘permanently separated’ from family by illegal immigrants

Days after yielding to pressure to reverse his policy of separating migrant families at the southern border, President Trump returned Friday to the nativist rhetoric that animated his outsider presidential campaign, casting immigrants as threats to “our citizens.”

Seeking to counter the intense criticism of his border policies, Trump invited families of Americans killed by undocumented immigrants to tell their stories of being “permanently separated” from loved ones.

“These are the stories that Democrats and people that are weak on immigration, they don’t want to discuss, they don’t want to hear, they don’t want to see, they don’t want to talk about,” Trump said at the White House.

Um, they don’t. Most of the media was reticent to cover the murder of Kate Steinle by an illegal alien, one who had been convicted of multiple crimes previously and had been deported 5 times. The Credentialed Media really tries to stay away from stories where an illegal alien is the perp. Many times, stories ignore information on things like ICE placing a detainer on one. In fact, they often trot out stories that illegals commit less crime than Americans, which missed the fact that people who are not supposed to be in the United States to start with are committing crimes.

In fact, the article spends barely any time discussing what the family members had to say. Most is just about Trump, the separation policy, and getting some sort of immigration bill passed in Congress.

At the White House event Friday, Trump and many of the family members who spoke criticized what they called one-sided media coverage that does not focus on their stories.

“We weren’t lucky enough to be separated for five days or 10 days; we’re separated permanently,” said Laura Wilkerson, whose son Josh was killed in 2010. “Any time we want to see or be close to our kids, we go to the cemetery, because that’s where they are. We could never speak to them, we can’t Skype with them.”

That’s it. In fact, the families had a lot to say, such as

How many media outlets are covering the case of an illegal alien who just confessed to murdering two women in Miami? More families that lost children to an illegal?

The president blamed Democrats for what he called weak immigration laws and policies that treat those in the country illegally too leniently, even though Republicans control Congress and failed this week to pass an immigration bill out of the House because of opposition from GOP members. Trump railed against the MS-13 gang, heroin from outside the United States, and so-called “catch and release” immigration enforcement.

It almost seems like the Washington Post is attempting to defend heroin and MS-13. Because they’re deranged.

Gun Grabber David Hogg Caught Cruising The Streets Of NYC With Armed Guards

Who’s surprised by the hypocrisy? Anyone? Anyone?

(Western Journalism) Self-defense for me, but not for thee: That seems to be the new message of anti-Second Amendment advocate David Hogg, at least if claims by people who spotted him in New York City recently are correct.

Earlier this week, the spotlight-seeking Parkland student-turned activist was photographed in the Big Apple apparently flanked by bodyguards with military haircuts and Secret Service-style suits.

Hogg’s response to all this was “Love you, too”, and never once refuted the notion that he had armed security. He also recommended reading his book, and that he’s pro-2nd Amendment

Other users pointed out that the hypocrisy is especially deep since it’s in New York City, a place with some of the most strict gun control laws in the nation and where concealed carry permits are nearly impossible to obtain.

It’s almost as if Hogg doesn’t truly trust laws to keep people from illegally carrying guns, despite… well, constantly advocating for more laws to keep people from carrying guns.

“But (David Hogg), I thought armed guards were not an answer to security? Who is Paying for him?” asked GA Patriot on Twitter. “Everytown? George Soros ? What makes you Special or better that anyone else in NYC?”

It is incredibly difficult for citizens in NY, and especially NYC, to engage in using their 2nd Amendment rights for protection, just like in many other Democratic Party run areas. And most of us cannot afford to have armed security when traveling, unlike people like David Hogg, Alyssa Milano, Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and so many other gun hating celebrities and Democrats.

Hogg’s version of supporting gun ownership: “They’re pathetic f***ers that want to keep killing our children,” he declared about millions of law-abiding members of the National Rifle Association.

And Hogg is 100% against arming teachers and/or school personnel to protect the children. But armed protection for himself? That’s a different story.

Speaking of Bloomberg

Gun control proponent Michael Bloomberg is donating $80 million to Democrat candidates in hopes of flipping the House of Representatives to a pro-gun control position.

Like most, Bloomberg and the gun grabber groups he supports want to enact restrictions on the gun rights of law abiding citizens. They, and their pet elected Democrats (who also have armed security), have proposed virtually nothing that goes after criminals that use firearms.

You Driving A Fossil Fueled Vehicle Sparked The Border Migration Crisis

It’s so obvious, you guys! It wasn’t the fact that illegals and refugees and people who just wanted to get away from their 3rd World Shitholes developing nations always seem to want to come to the United States. Or that one political party, and some squishes in the other, not only refuse to crack down on illegal immigration, but actively propagate the impetus for people to stream to the U.S. Or that people have always streamed to the U.S., legally and illegally. No, it’s carbon pollution. And all your fault

Climate Change Sparked the Border Migration Crisis

One factor causing migrants to risk everything—even potentially losing their children—to travel through the heat of summer in the dangerous desert and towards the barbed wire fences and tent cities springing up just south of the United States border: climate change.

Many of the migrants being detained here now hail from what’s referred variously as the Dry Corridor or the Northern Triangle, which consists of the three countries immediately south of Mexico: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

The agricultural crisis of the Northern Triangle area isn’t something that cropped up overnight, but has been in the making for more than a decade. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations published a report in June 2016 that described the depth of the food insecurity crisis in the region, leaving 3.5 million people, or nearly 30 percent of the population, food insecure from crop losses estimated to be as high as 90 percent.

See? Who didn’t see this coming, because we all know that plants hate carbon dioxide.

And just to continue with the meme

Trump Penalizes Migrants Fleeing Climate Crisis He Ignores

The impacts of climate change do not respect international borders. If they did, it wouldn’t be the case that the countries who have done the least to contribute to global carbon dioxide emissions are expected to suffer disproportionately from their effects.

But as climate refugees begin to flee deteriorating conditions, they are already finding that borders very much apply to them.

Many of the immigrants being detained at the southern U.S. border under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy are fleeing food scarcity brought on by climate change, The Daily Beast reported Thursday.

Wait, I thought Obama fixed ‘climate change’? Didn’t he say that “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”? Trump certainly hasn’t been in office long enough to create climate doom. Must be an inherited problem

‘Climate Change’ Made Lobsters Awesome, But Will Kill Them In The Future Or Something

It’s always some sort of doom with these people

Climate Change Brought a Lobster Boom. Now It Could Cause a Bust.

At 3:30 in the morning on a Friday in late May, the lobstermen ate breakfast. Outside, their boats bobbed in the labradorite water, lit only by the dull yellow of streetlamps across the bay. It was windy, too windy for fishing, but one by one the island’s fishermen showed up at the Surfside cafe anyway. Over pancakes and eggs, they grumbled about the season’s catch to date.

Some of the lobstermen said it was just too early in the season. Others feared that it was a sign of things to come. Since the early 1980s, climate change had warmed the Gulf of Maine’s cool waters to the ideal temperature for lobsters, which has helped grow Maine’s fishery fivefold to a half-billion-dollar industry, among the most valuable in the United States. But last year the state’s lobster landings dropped by 22 million pounds, to 111 million.

Now, scientists and some fishermen are worried that the waters might eventually warm too much for the lobsters, and are asking how much longer the boom can last.

“Climate change really helped us for the last 20 years,” said Dave Cousens, who stepped down as president of the Maine Lobstermen’s Association in March. But, he added, “Climate change is going to kill us, in probably the next 30.”

NJ Governor Pushes To Increase Cost Of Gun Ownership

Remember, one of the talking points from the gun grabbers is that they don’t want to interfere with the Constitutional rights of law abiding citizens to own a firearm, they just want to keep them out of the hands of criminals. Where does this one fit in?

Phil Murphy wants to make it a lot more expensive to buy a gun in N.J.

Gov. Phil Murphy is proposing to significantly hike fees for buying and selling firearms in New Jersey, a move that would raise the cost of gun permits and licenses for the first time in half a century and likely trigger a legal challenge from Second Amendment advocates.

Murphy, a Democrat who has already signed half a dozen gun control bills in his first few months in office, has publicly called for raising such fees.

“It’s hard to believe it’s actually cheaper to get a permit to purchase a handgun, which is $2, than it is to get a dog license in practically any town in our state,” Murphy said at a June 13 bill signing.

Draft legislation obtained by NJ Advance Media shows Murphy wants to raise fees and licenses far beyond the rate of inflation. The proposal, which Murphy’s office shared with legislative leaders as part of the budget process, has not been formally introduced in the state Legislature. (snip)

The plan would raise the cost for handgun purchase permits from $2 to $50; firearms identification cards from $5 to $100; handgun carry permits from $50 to $400; retail gun dealer licenses from $50 to $500; and wholesaler/manufacturer licenses from $150 to $1,500, among other hikes.

That’s a serious jump in cost, wouldn’t you say? And who gets burdened? The law abiding. The purchase permit is only good for 90 days, and would have to be renewed. As I quickly wrote in the the comments

As a lawful gun owner, I’m not against reasonable fees, but, the $2 is simply for a purchase permit, which is good for 90 days (we pay $5 in NC, good for 5 years. But only good for one handgun purchase). You also have to pay $5 for a purchaser ID card. Plus $62.50 for the fingerprints. And a permit to possess and carry a firearm is another $20 $50, and has to be renewed every 2 years.

I pay zero in NC to possess and open carry. Concealed carry is $80, renews every 5 years, and $75 per renewal.

The purchaser ID card is required for any purchase, possession, and carrying of a long gun. So, hunters would pay quite a bit more. The handgun permit has to be renewed every two years, so law abiding citizens would be paying that $400 every two years. None of this would effect criminals, just the law abiding.

But the governor’s public budget plan anticipates $1.4 million in additional revenue from the sale of firearms, and gun control activists continued to press the matter Thursday after learning the idea had not been picked up by Democratic leaders in the state Assembly and Senate.

And that was the other thing I mentioned in the comments: “What Phil is attempting to do isn’t even anti-gun so much as trying to steal more money from taxpayers.” It’s what Democrats do. Raise taxes and fees because they’re not particularly good at being responsible with the money they forcibly take from citizens, and always want more.
