Here is both another problem from Global Climate Change and a validation that simulating a volcanic eruption could help cool the earth off.
Scientists say that once they correct for the cooling effect of 1991's Mt. Pinatubo eruption, sea level rise is accelerating.

She did, I agree. So did Trump, and his shills have come out and admitted to being fake Sanders supporters. In fact his son-in-law runs The Observer, a spin site often cited as a legitimate source by Bernie progressives. They are playing right into Trump's hands.

Bernie in the Media  - 
 
The only logical outcome of #BernieOrBust is a promise to vote for and fund Jill Stein of the green party. If the Democrats are going to foist Hillary on us, we take our votes to the only competent candidate left on the right side of the issues. Voting for Trump or not voting is real stupid. But I cannot stomach voting for Hillary.

I just decided that House of Cards is no longer interesting. One of the characters went so far I don't care about them any more.

I've long loathed how much Hillary sucks up to the radical Israeli lobby.
 
Good read from Phillip Weiss!
‘NYT’ puts Dems’ battle over Israel platform on the front page. The exposure signifies that the Democratic Party is lost to Israel forever, as the progressive grassroots assert th…

It seems like G+ finally really is mostly dead. You can't post much of anything on supposedly progressive sites other than the now moribund Bernie sites without getting the extreme ire of the Hillary partisans that are all for us voting for the extremely corrupt and incompetent fool even though she quite obviously stole the nomination from the person who should have won.

I am not voting for her. If that means Trump wins, I didn't vote for Hillary in the primary. I contributed heavily to Bernie's campaign only to have the Democrats play every dirty trick they could to foist the Great Sellout on us.

I'm still thoroughly determined to try to prevent this country from going off the cliff electing either Hillary or Trump. The only interesting candidate in this race is now Jill Stein. Hillary's warmongering and her blatantly obvious sellouts to Wall Street and corporate lobbyists is not all that much better than Trump.

So I want to turn this around the other way. If Democrats want to continue supporting such a disgusting candidate, and don't rally around Jill, you can live with the results. I refuse to be forced to vote for an ethically challenged sellout.

I would rather force the Democrats into addressing the needs of their base than actually winning this particular election. I'm absolutely appalled at the fraud of the DNC in getting Hillary the nomination. So if she loses, not my problem.

I'm absolutely appalled at the FBI's refusal to prosecute Hillary for her brazen violation of the law. Is this what we want as President?

+Steve Roberti look. Fuck off you ass. The President NOMINATES get it? He enters the name for confirmation by the Senate. The Senate decides who will actually be appointed.

Once again. You don't know how government works. Trumps got you thinking he can rule as a dictator and simply appoint his corrupt, lying thugs for important cabinet positions. But sadly, once again, Trump has fooled with his lies.

I'm beginning to think that Trump is so irrelevant that we can have the Greens and the Democrats run under a common agreement to vote in the Electoral College for the candidate with the largest plurality.

It's the only way to get about half of Bernie supporters to not throw away their vote.

The Republicans at large should be irrelevant by now, if American voters had any sense. If we must have a 2-party system, the Democrats should be our conservative party and some other progressive party such as the Greens should be our liberal party. Even more ideal would be a more pluralistic democracy with multiple parties (vs. a 2-party Republic), but that would take sweeping reforms that I don't think the population is ready to accept yet.

So let's do something to counteract warming. We can't wait until the greenhouse pollution dissipates on its own two hundred years from now. There are numerous geoengineering things we can do to cool the planet. It totally irks me that it is politically incorrect to talk about it.
 
Brace yourself. Global warming brings with it not only weather and resource challenges, but more disease, allergies, and asthma, among other grave concerns. | Big Think

'There are lots of disastrous ways climate change is affecting our planet. It is speeding up the extinction rate of many species and increasing land degradation. This could mean less fish in the sea for food and less arable land for crops, as well as many more conflicts in the world to control dwindling resources. Higher temperatures make extreme weather events more likely and far more severe. Floods, hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, and other natural disasters already come with high death tolls as it is.

Through human caused climate change, we are barreling toward a world with less stability, less resources, more disease, and more lives lost to extreme weather events.

It's a small chain but broth is made on location. Very tasty and affordable.

This is amazingly good Italian style thin crust pizza. They use natural gas in the oven instead of expensive hardwood, so the pizza is a bit less expensive, but equally tasty. All of the toppings and cheese are locally sourced. The salads are delicious with subtle sophisticated dressings. But then there are the beer and wines from all over the world. They sell good wine by the glass and at least 40 different very delicious beers and ciders. It's very high end flavors at a more moderate price. Expect to spend at least $30 per person but each time you can drink something interesting and very different along with the very excellent pizza and salad.

The coffee could be just a bit less over roasted, but the food was quickly served and tasty. I had the smoked salmon omelette. I may come back if I'm in the area, but it isn't the kind of place that I will go out of the way to visit.

I really don't understand any of the negative reviews. This is a really kewl laid back bar with a wide range of beers on tap, good drinks, and a game room downstairs. The food is great, including the burgers. The guy with the dry burger should have just asked for something, they have plenty of good things to add to a burger, most of them free. I'm sure they can supply you with some good sauce or aoili on the side. They have some of the best collard greens I've ever had. There is a daily barbecue special that is very inexpensive and effing delicious, dipped in their tangy not sweet barbecue sauce.

Yes it is somewhat more pricey than some other places nearby, the portions are not huge. Since I tend to eat everything on my plate, I don't mind if they don't serve me so much stuff. The food and coffee is just fine. I really like the Porkstrami Hash, which has a small amount of fatty spiced ham, green vegetables and really fresh tasty fried potatoes.

The rabbit salad was better than OK, but the slices were greasy with low quality toppings, tough not especially tasty crust, and bland sauces

Other than a great place to get a beer, the food is really corporate cheap and awful. The heavily bleached flour used on crusts tastes like paste, there's was too much rather low quality sausage in my calzone, not enough veggies, ricotta, or sauce. Salad was iceberg and fake croutons and cheap bottled dressing.
