I Warned You Oklahoma


This is the 3000th post of BillyCreek. I started this blog a couple of years ago without a lot of knowledge of blogs, but a great interest in getting rid of Bu$hCo & in keeping my sanity. I've learned a lot in the last couple of years. I've had my brushes with fame, e.g., mentioned by skippy, the bush kangaroo. skippy also mentioned & linked to my grandbabies' blog, The Twins. I've now put skippy on my blogroll & am proud to do it. I've also been linked to by Atrios, & got a few hundred hits that day. But the grandbabies are the tops right now. They are why I still blog for justice, why I am still a dirty, fucking hippie who is a non-serious lefty. Or so "they" say. It's been fun in blogtopia, yes, skippy coined that, & I'm looking forward to more fun & more outrage & more fatigue & more happiness & more popcorn (watching all of Bu$hCo being frogmarched & convicted) & more joy with The Twins.

But did you listen? Noooooo, you reelected James Imhofe (R-DumbestofDumbasses). Well, thanks a lot Oklahoma, future filming site of Okies II, Revenge Of The Peacock Bass.

A new global warming report issued today by the United Nations paints a near-apocalyptic vision of the Earth's future if temperatures continue to rise unabated: more than a billion people in desperate need of water, extreme food shortages in Africa and elsewhere, a blighted landscape ravaged by fires and floods, and millions of species sentenced to extinction.

The devastating effects will strike all regions of the world and all levels of society, but it will be those without the resources to adapt to the coming changes who will suffer the greatest impact, the report said.

"It's the poorest of the poor in the world, and this includes poor people even in prosperous societies, who are going to be the worst hit," said Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which issued the report today in Brussels.
