“We are all here for one reason: to end fossil fuels around the planet,” Ocasio-Cortez told a rally at the finish of the march, which ended close to the UN headquarters where world leaders will gather this week. “And the way we create urgency is to have people around the world in the streets.”
She said: “The United States continues to be approving a record number of fossil fuel leases and we must send a message, right here today,” adding that despite record profits the support for the fossil fuel industry was “starting to buckle and crack.”
Hola you all! 🙂 TGIF, even for us retirees. LOL. Guess the latest political news is the automaker workers have called a strike. I wish them the very best. Been backing off a bit on the political front cos of the climate crisis. It’s discouraging, to say the least. Hurricanes Lee and Margot have missed us, but there is plenty of action left, storm wise. So, the Nest is Open for the usual action. Stay safe and well! 🙂
Another weekend! Cooler climes already (it was very hot earlier this week), and more football. Of course, there is plenty of news with the GQP trying to shut down the government, placing blame on the Dems and Biden. Come join us in the comments after the jump! Music welcome too!
Hello everyone. Hope you all are enjoying a safe and peaceful Labor Day Holiday. 🙂 It’s somewhat hot right now down here, but super muggy. Plenty of storm action in the Atlantic, but quiet, hurricane-wise. 🙂 In other news, POTUS is coming down here to check the Idalia damage. Whether worthless Governor MIA will meet with him or not, who knows? The Nest is Open. Take care!
Hola everyone. 🙂 Well, here we go: hurricane watch time. My casa is prepared, as we’ve been through too many of these weather rodeos to count. Right now, no one knows where Idalia will make landfall. It will be somewhere on the west coast of FL. Big question will be how long will she be over a very warm (thanks, climate chaos) GOM? The Gulf is now a very warm soup which is hurricane manna. Idalia will intensify, no doubt about it. 🙁 And, Governor MIA is back here for all his photos ops. What a piece of crap and …Continue reading →
Happy Monday, everyone. I want to thank Ms. Benny for hosting last week. 🙂 The important news around here is the Atlantic/Caribbean/GOM storm season is awakening. We’ve got 5 active systems right now. No hurricane threats, thankfully. It will be an active two more months. Thoughts are with the folks in the Baja/San Diego areas with the flooding from a rare storm, Hilary. Just another reminder that climate change is very alive and well. The Nest is Open. You all take care. 🙂
