Crawford Kilian reviews the climate science that we face a desperate global struggle. Then says...

… mass migration … has been the default human response to climate change and food shortages for at least 200,000 years. But where would the billions of South and East Asia go? West, to Central Asia and the Middle East? Likely to be hot, hostile and even less fertile than now. North, to Siberia? Even after Siberia’s forests burn, they will leave little but scorched muskeg and melting permafrost, useless for farming.

We in North America and Europe think we’re hard done by because the first few climate refugees are tentatively knocking on our doors. Three billion climate refugees with nuclear weapons in their luggage wouldn’t bother to knock.

More on tRump's decision:

Trump issues rollback of Obama's biggest climate rule (Alex Guillén, Politico)

"The proposal from the EPA goes to the core of the criticisms that the coal industry and conservatives lodged against Obama's 2015 regulation, which used a novel reading of the Clean Air Act to require states to cut greenhouse gas pollution from the power sector. The replacement from President Donald Trump’s EPA would give states far more leeway to meet more modest climate goals — or even to opt of the program entirely.

...the new rule’s biggest impact could come from the inevitable lawsuits... If they lose, the result could be a court decision enshrining the Trump administration’s hobbled approach to climate regulation...

At the very least, experts say, the proposal... would mean years of delay in curbing one of the world’s most dire problems — the greenhouse gas pollution that causes climate change."

President Trump’s decision to roll back even measured efforts to curtail carbon-dioxide emissions and news about Arctic sea ice combine to paint a picture of a country that’s living through climate change and deciding not to do anything about it.

... a new report Tuesday ...: For the first time on record, the thickest Arctic sea ice began to break apart this year.

This is the day that the climate change fight was obviously lost

One solution to flooding and wildfires made worse by anthropogenic climate change... :)

“Suggestion for our next infrastructure project...” a catch basin and aqueduct/trough, diverting rainfall from intense storms causing flooding in the eastern US, sending the water to put out the rampant wildfires in the western US

Powerful quotes Loren, Plinius, and Grinning Cat!

On Ryan Zinke (one of many Trump-appointed foxes guarding henhouses, as Secretary of the Interior) blaming western US forest fires not on global warming but on environmentalism and logging regulations:
Zinke with a giant chainsaw, having just clearcut a forest: “No forest, no forest fires...”
