Fallout...April 12

New episode of one of my favorite documentary series...the Fall of Civilizations

"Each episode, we look at a civilization that rose to glory, and then collapsed into the ashes of history. We ask: Why did it collapse? What happened next? And what did it feel like to be a person alive at the time?"

I'm struck by parallels between this empire and ours...

A thought...how delicious that Trump will eventually be done in by the 'help', don't you think?

His drivers, valets, aides, coffee boys and girls, etc...a bit of karma, I think.

Stop Making Sense 2023

February 6, 2023

By 2050 more people will die from excessive heat than from auto accidents in parts of the U.S.

So where exactly is ground zero for climate change you may ask? Florida, Texas and Arizona.

If the estimates are high, maybe only 80 deaths per hundred thousand. If they are low, perhaps as many as 150 per hundred thousand. Currently there are ten deaths per hundred thousand from traffic accidents in the U.S. One alarming number...Coral Gables Florida...97% of real properties will experience flood damage by 2050. Let's not even mention Houston which regularly floods now even before major onset of global climate change. By then the wet-bulb temps will be so bad in Houston that you won't be able to work outside for more than a few hours at a time. Maricopa County Arizona is done...finito.

Yet people are still moving to these three states in large numbers to find work.
