Fracking Is A Bigger Problem Than We Thought
We are going full speed ahead towards irreversible climate change. Cenk Uygur, Maz Jobrani, and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.
Methane doesn’t stay in the atmosphere as long as CO2 and is reabsorbed into terrestrial cycles via chemical reactions within 12 years or so. But while it’s up there, it’s much more potent, trapping heat at roughly 84 times the rate of CO2. Scientists estimate that around 25 percent of current global warming traces to methane.
When it comes to reducing CO2 emissions, the chain between cause and effect is frustratingly long and diffuse. Reduced emissions today won’t show up as reduced climate impacts for decades.
But with methane, the chain of causation is much shorter and simpler. Reduced emissions have an almost immediate climate impact. It’s a short-term climate lever, and if the countries of the world are going to hold rising temperatures to the United Nations’ target of “well below” 2 degrees Celsius above the preindustrial baseline, they’re going to need all the short-term climate levers they can get.
In the real world, though, the news about methane is bad and getting worse. It turns out that a mysterious recent spike in global methane levels that’s putting climate targets at risk may be coming from US oil and gas fracking. If that’s true, it’s bad news, because there’s lots more shale gas development in the pipeline and the Trump administration is busy rolling back regulations on the industry.”

Union workers told to attend Trump speech or lose pay
Workers at the Pennsylvania petrochemical plant where President Donald Trump spoke were told that if they didn’t attend the event, they either had to use paid time off or receive no pay for the day.
The CNN caption to this YouTube video does not mention who owns that Monaca, Pennsylvania petrochemical plant. Which produces plastic. It is Shell oil multinational corporation. Yes, the same Shell that covered up the climate change science which Donald Trump hates so much. The same Shell which wants oil drilling in the oil spill prone Arctic environment. The same Shell which causes very damaging earthquakes with its drilling in Groningen province in the Netherlands and elsewhere. The same Shell which hires thugs in Ireland for violence against local small farmers and other opponents of its environmentally hazardous plans. The same Shell which pollutes Nigeria. The same Shell which bribed Nigerian soldiers and hired thugs for violence against Nigerian environmentalists. The same Shell which profited from George W Bush’s and Tony Blair’s Iraq war. The same Shell advising NATO on neo-colonial and potentially nuclear wars.
Workers were ordered not to protest or show any ‘resistance’ at Trump rally in Pennsylvania: here.

PROUD BOYS: TRUMP MADE PORTLAND A SUCCESS A former Infowars staffer who organized the Proud Boys protest in Portland, Oregon, on Saturday deemed the “mission” a success because Trump sided with the right-wing extremist group against anti-fascists. [HuffPost]
PROUD BOYS SAY IT OUT LOUD For years, the Proud Boys have helped organize violent gatherings in Portland, Oregon, thinly veiled as political freedom rallies in order to secure permits or police escorts. This week, the group’s leader admitted the truth: The events are intended to spur fights, waste city resources and win a game of optics against their anti-fascist nemeses. [HuffPost]
WHITE NATIONALIST ARRESTED FOR ANTI-SEMITIC THREATS White nationalist James Patrick Reardon was arrested over the weekend for threatening to shoot up a Jewish community center in Youngstown, Ohio, police said. He is being held on charges of telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing. [HuffPost]
