Alaskans among first in US to suffer climate disruptions




Howie and Powers keep trolling for dollars. Those two are peas in a pod: Gordo has bags under his eyes and Pat has bags under his bags.

In 2007, as seasonal ice cover had fallen to its lowest extent since satellite records began in 1979, a rising star of Alaskan politics brought a critical issue to her constituents:
"Climate change is not just an environmental issue. It is also a social, cultural, and economic issue important to all Alaskans. As a result of this warming, coastal erosion, thawing permafrost, retreating sea ice, record forest fires, and other changes are affecting, and will continue to affect, the lifestyles and livelihoods of Alaskans."
And now?
Palin, who was known for her "Drill, baby, drill" catchphrase in support of more domestic oil-drilling during the 2008 presidential campaign, said she bet on Frac Daddy.
The US Department of Agriculture has recognized State Director Elsie Meeks and GROW South Dakota for its 18 year partnership in community lending.

In Rapid City today, Assistant Secretary for Indian Affairs Kevin Washburn stated on livestream that the governor's office and South Dakota Dept. of Social Services were invited to the summit hearing testimony on the Indian Child Welfare Act. Representatives from those offices reportedly chose not attend today's session.

Rep. Kristi Noem (earth hater-SD) having pocketed subsidies is now cutting aid to the poorest, so it should come as no surprise that she's not the only hypocrite in her party.

Sen. don Juan Thune (earth hater-SD) is a stooge, but David Letterman is hardly the first to call him that. As a lawyer Thune should know that federal law restricts presidential meddling in the Internal Revenue Service:
For what it’s worth, the last confirmed commissioner of the I.R.S. was Douglas H. Shulman. He was appointed by President George W. Bush and served a full term from 2008 through 2012, including the period when I.R.S. employees are said to have put added demands on conservative groups applying for tax exempt status.

"Survives Latest Environmental Challenge:" what a bullshit headline from the GOP-owned Rapid City Journal!

The pine collapse now occurring on the Black Hills hydrologic region was forecast in 2002: now, thanks to Marty Jacklow and his earth hater donors, it's sealed in law.

The Black Hills National Forest covers 8125 sq. mi. Israel occupies some 8522.

Stupid fuckers.

If the military really wanted to curb sexual violence it would train Lesbian warriors to teach the realities of sexual harassment to men and allow gay Marines to describe it to women.

Bees are fighting and dying in a war of resistance against the perpetrators of the Anthropocene.
