Watch “FULL Real Time With Bill Maher 8/23/19 | Real Time With Bill Maher August 23, 2019” on YouTube

Watch the whole show but if you want to watch Bill ask the current occupant of the White House to Champion climber change then you’re in for a treat at 57 and a half minutes into the show.

Bill Maher pledges to be his supporter if he doesn’t want a t and embraces the fact that we are burning our planet away. This may be all funny but I was talking to a friend today and I don’t know how young people today can face the future. I’m 65 and I have maybe 30 years left if I’m really lucky but the worst of the worst won’t happen for 50 years and Bill Maher is right we need to do something and we need to do something now and if it means my voting for Trump if he embraces climate change then yes I will do that as well. But, unfortunately you know that if he embraces it today 5 minutes from now the Koch brothers will call him, oh I forgot, the Koch brother will call and tell him to change his tune or else.

Trump Slams Russia Investigation And Green New Deal At CPAC – NPR

If it wasn’t CPAC I would think they were all on drugs, on second thought maybe they are.

Between railing about the green New deal and how they’re going to take away our cheeseburgers, SUVs and for God’s sakes airplanes they had a clown come to the show.

Unfortunately the clown is the President of the United States.

They are so outside of the mainstream of American thought that it has become akin to going to a NRA convention. both organizations are outside of the mainstream of American soft, both organizations have people desperately clinging onto power for power’s sake and both organizations should be dismantled.

and there are people out there that are buying this Hook Line & sinker. I’ve got to put in a little word hear about Joe Biden’s comment that Mike Pence is a decent guy. to me it is indicative of the fact that Joe Biden should not be the nominee of the democratic party. Mike Pence is not a decent guy, Mike Pence hates the lgbtqi community and Mike Pence was in charge of the transition. You can tell me that the governor of Indiana comes to Washington and sees all these Russians running around and doesn’t ask a single question. It’s not believable and therefore it can’t be true.

Grassley raises voice after McConnell interrupts Senate speech – TheHill

Me thinks not all is peachy on the Republican side of the Senate.

Chuck grassley is not one of my favorite people. Chuck Grassley understands what McConnell has just set off. This is much worse than what Chuck Schumer did when he change the rules in the senate for confirmations to a majority as opposed to a 60-vote needed. Chuck Grassley understands that there’s going to be a democratic presidents maybe in the near future. Chuck Grassley understands that this is a president that is going to be disastrous for the Republican Party. sure the Republicans cheat but when they do they open the door for others to do the same.

I look forward to a democratic Congress and President. But if there’s a Democratic president she can declare National emergencies for things that are actually National emergencies. Something like climate change or gun control.

This false emergency is a smoke screen to hide behind for the Trump Administration and all of the problems that is besieging them.

Red-hot planet: All-time heat records have been set all over the world during the past week – The Washington Post

The Trump regime and its Cadre of collaborators who are in the pocket of big corporations that don’t want to see regulations that will help our planet survive. These companies don’t live on a long-term plan most Executives only last five to seven years in a company all they care about is what they can do now. The future that’s not their problem and it seems they don’t really care about their kids, grandkids or the future of our planet.

we have an EPA administrator who is so deep in a quagmire of scandals it’s amazing that this man still has a job. In any Corporation he would have been fired by now. But he’s following exactly what the Trump regime wants. Do everything to increase the economy on the short-term so that they get reelected. What’s happening though is the price of gas. Has anybody noticed how quickly it’s going up? You can mark the date of when we pulled out of the Iran agreement as the beginning of the rise in fuel prices. You may think the Trump regime would want the fuel prices to remain low, but you are wrong. They want to blame the countries that have the predominance of oil for this increase. Of course they will never ever ever criticize Russia and its giant oil industry.

on this Fourth of July I hope we as a planet will take heat and do something to protect the future of our children and grandchildren if we are to have a planet at all.

There is no Planet B as President Macron has said.

Trump administration moves on two fronts to challenge California environmental protections – LA Times

How dare they?

On a recent town hall meeting over the phone with my representative Jimmy Gomez he told us about something that runs in the Republican party in Congress. It’s called ABC or anybody but California. we are the largest state in the Union in population. We are the largest economy in the Union. We are if an independent country the fifth largest economy in the world. And it seems that they hate us for it. They hate us for our clean air, clean water and beautiful way of living. I don’t want to leave the union I just want to make a more perfect union.

Scott Pruitt when he worked for the state of Oklahoma sued the EPA countless times. He has publicly said that the EPA should be dismantled, and let’s not forget the fact that he takes bribes. He’s living in a condominium one block from the Capitol building in Washington in some of the most pricey real estate. He has every right to live there if you paid for it. Instead he’s paying 1/3 of the going rate for that apartment that he leases from an oil company that he’s given special permissions to drill in preserved lands. Sure he takes first class flights, he says he doesn’t like the people in coach telling him what they think about him. I guess he feels more comfortable with the millionaires who he kowtows to. If he acted like a real governmental official he would be looking after the best interest of our country and our planet but he doesn’t care.

It’s time that we fire him and his boss, end of discussion.

Presidential candidates reveal views on science and technology

As it is to be expected Donald Trump thinks that climate change is dubious. But he makes himself sound caring by saying that he would like to help get clean water to those who do not have it and fight malaria and famine in the world. What he leaves out is that climate change is a factor in not having clean water and the spread of disease and the lack of food. Our nation cannot elect a man who does not believe in climate change. He is more worried about the fact that he had to change hair sprays then he does about the health of our planet. This is a man who said he could not understand how Hairspray that he uses in his seal Department would affect the ozone layer.

And this is me showing you my inner geek. Donald Trump is looking more and more like the Baron Harkonnen of the Dune series. He’s always acted like him.

The Supreme Court could block Obama’s climate plans — but it can’t stop clean energy – The Washington Post

Great article from The Washington Post. It also shows how important having someone in the White House to continue President Obama’s work is crucial. It also explains that most of what was blocked yesterday by the Supreme Court will not go into effect for many years. So in essence what they did was just political posturing as they expect a new president in 2017.

Florida mayors to Rubio: We’re going under, take climate change seriously | Ars Technica

Ignoring climate change is criminal. We owe it to our children grandchildren and great-grandchildren to give them an earth that is livable. Politicians like Rubio who deny it are the dying its at their own peril.
When I lived on South Beach in 2013 I could not believe that each morning on Lori’s Lee sunny days the streets will be flooded as the water came up through the sewers and drains to make the city impossible to pedestrians.

In Florida’s Everglades, Obama wades into climate change politics

Those denying that there are changes to our climate that are profound and destructive are putting their proverbial head in the sand. We are destroying this planet in unison. we are a one planet species and if we destroy our habitats we destroy ourselves. Greed is the main motivator for denying  climate change. greed is the main motivator of people.
I understand why people say happy birthday, and I’m usually a glasses half full person, but saying happy Earth Day is like saying happy funeral. I hope one day we will all scream out with joy happy Earth Day.
