"Especially when the over 70% of the planet is uninhabitable by humans and the worlds deserts have been growing for a hell of a long time so Trump is not at fault."
No intelligent person is saying it's his fault. Donald Dogshit is just a stepping stone for all the other assholes that got us in this mess to enter into positions of political power.... Case in point: Scott Pruitt finally resigns and the "acting" EPA administrator is a former coal lobbyist! When in the fucking 21st century back lung is on the rise.
As for your 70% of the planet is uninhabitable remark, what do you mean? The 70% that is ocean? There is a lot more than 70% of the landmasses that are "habitable". People have been living on Antarctica for a long time. It just isn't possible to sustain human life there for a long time without resources from somewhere else.
There are deserts that are growing, there are ice sheet melting, there is tundra turning to swamp. There are low lying areas flooding. Rain patterns are shifting. Dissolved gas levels in the ocean are changing. We breathe an atmosphere that has NEVER existed on this planet. EVER!
The EPA, NASA, NOAA, NWS, FAA, NFS... just to name some I'm familiar with...the list goes on... are now either headed by people that have worked to destroy or hide or deny or have conflicts of interest with the mass of work these people have done. Or, they just aren't even being staffed.
There's nothing funny about shit. The people who are trying to keep things running are forced to limit the way they communicate. You just can't do this shit and hope to make real progress.
Now I'm even more pissed and ranting... Thanks.
