How Fucked the Climate Is in Two Photos (Updated)

Hey, kids, here's what's going on in Yosemite National Park. It's a wildfire. It ain't the biggest fire ever, or even this year in California, but it's burning some nice places.

Down the road about 650 miles, just one state over, Phoenix, Arizona is experiencing its worst flooding in, like, ever.

Fire and floods, motherfuckers, fires and floods. Biblical shit right there. Need more?

The fucked climate is fucking over the birds, too. Yeah, the habitats and migratory routes of more than half the bird species in the United States are under the global warming gun. The drought in California wiped out 90-95% of all the raptor nests. No baby hawks, no baby eagles, no baby falcons.

At least this way when people tell you that marching to protest inaction on climate change, as we are going to do on Sunday, is for the birds, you can answer, "Yes. And the people, too."

Update: And also out today: Greenhouse gases are increasing at an even faster rate. "Experts warned that the world was 'running out of time' to reverse rising levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) to tackle climate change." Of course, we'll do nothing, fucking ourselves and our children even more.
