tabatha - Not a vry effective way to change the subject from your inability to distiguish between a fire hazard and the ability to survive a fire.Try to get the easy ones - the contradictions in your comments:
"We’ve reported before that climate scientists had predicted a decade ago that warming-driven Arctic ice loss would lead to worsening drought in California."
Sea ice increase isn't increasing California's drought.
"Artic sea ice has increased since 2012. It's been within within one σ of the 1981-2010 average all year."http://www.climate4you.com/images/NSI...

tabatha - Your statements on eucalytus aren't in the thinkprogress article you cited. Gasoline is as much of a fire hazard during wet weather as it is in dry weather. (actually higher, because evaporation increases as barometric presuure decreases. The same is true for eucalyptus. The greatest risk is crown fires, and the reason eucalyptus is so dangerous is that volatile compounds cause explosive burning, spreadfing fires through burning embers. Discussions of relative fire hazards are based on specific species igniting and spreading fires, not whether a species can survive a fire, so your comment on oaks is irrelevant to fire hazard.
Artic sea ice has increased since 2012. It's been within within one σ of the 1981-2010 average all year.

Joe Romm, thinkprogress.org, has no credibility and no personal integrity.He's someone quoted by non-scienitsts who aren't capable of assessing scientific credibility.
Joe Romm's debate defeat tour hysterically continued Thursday when he went against his own decree forbidding further references to Marc Morano at his Climate Progress blog by eviscerating the New York Times for having the nerve to write about -- wait for it! -- Marc Morano.Newsbusters.org
Ridiculously Resilient Ridge:.In alarmist theory based on melting Artic sea ice. Irrational, since Artic sea ice is growing
"contacted Sloan to ask her if she thought there was a connection between the staggering loss of Arctic sea ice in recent years and the brutal drought gripping the West, as her research predicted. She wrote, “Yes, sadly, I think we were correct in our findings, and it will only be worse with Arctic sea ice diminishing quickly.” Last week, Sloan wrote me:
Yes, in this case I hate that we (Sewall & Sloan) might be correct. And in fact, I think the actual situation in the next few decades could be even more dire than our study suggested. Why do I say that? (1) we did not include changes in greenhouse gases other than CO2; (2) maybe we should have melted more sea ice and see what happens; "

The current drought has nothing to do with the hazards eucalyptus trees are known for. Lemon gum eucalyptus doesn't cause as many problems as red and blue gums. .Eucalyptus species are a fire hazard regardless of rainfall. Trees are uprooted and fall without warning regardless of rainfall; they have shallow roots. Branches break and have killed many people regardless of rainfall.Eucalyptus tress were imported for use as windbreaks and for firewood, and they contain a high level of creosote that makes their use as firewood impractical.California democrats aren't buying Obama's and Holdren's disinformation about AGW causing the current drought; California has had more severe droughts in the past, and isn't "drying up"..
"The drought is an issue in three of the five closest House races in California, but Democrats are opting against drawing a direct link between the drought and climate change.“The way folks talk about the drought out here is: ‘We have a problem, let’s fix the problem,’” said Amanda Renteria, a Democrat challenging Rep. David Valadao (R).
“Climate change doesn't really belong in the question, or answer,” said Renteria, one of her party’s best hopes of gaining a House seat this fall."

The majority of climate scientists don’t endorse the politically-motivated policy of AGW-alarmism. This has resulted in rejection of their research papers by journals funded by the US and UK governments, censorship of their opinions in corporate and liberal media, termination of their teaching positions at public universities, and denial of grants to fund their research by both US government agencies and corporate non-profit foundations whose support for AGW-alarmism is based on political and economic, rather than scientific and environmental motivation. Scientists who don't endorse Obama's and the IPCC's statements on catastrophic AGW predictions don't receive grants such as Gauthier's $699,000 funding from the US Department of Energy.WUWT also has links to many independent as well as government-sponsored climate monitoring websites, and is the only source I'm aware of that includes this information.

It sure isn't about climate justice, and it sure isn't about climate. It's a political corporate-fascist movement based entirely on propaganda, censorship of scientists, and censorship of the opposition to UN NGO environmental destruction and seizure of natural reesources in developing countries, and fraud by government agencies and AGW-alarmists funded by oil companies. These comments were deleted from Noozhawk, letter from climate scientist Catherine Gauthier.
Flooding incorrectly blamed on ice melt due to AGW;.temperatures 5-10 degrees below normal.
Flooding caused by AGW: River ice generated by global warming in North Dakota Kate White is a civil engineer at the Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, N.H., and one of the nation’s leading experts on ice jams.White said climate change caused by global warming likely is changing ice conditions and adding to the unpredictability.
UPDATE: President Obama has also weighed in.“I actually think the science around climate change is real. It is potentially devastating. … If you look at the flooding that’s going on right now in North Dakota, and you say to yourself, ‘If you see an increase of 2 degrees, what does that do, in terms of the situation there,’ that indicates the degree to which we have to take this seriously.”NOAA’s Center for Climate Prediction had incorrectly forecast a warm winter for the region last autumn.http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products...
In fact, temperatures in North Dakota have been running about 5-10 degrees below normal for the entire winter and spring.http://www.hprcc.unl.edu/products/map...http://www.hprcc.unl.edu/products/map...

Ignore the fact that the governments of the UK, Germany, and Sweden, among others, acknowledge chemtrails, and ignore lab reprots that show extremely high concentrations of aluminum and other toxic metals in soil . that are increasing over time. Stick to US government propaganda - denial is a defense mechanism that'll make you feel more secure.
Sam_Tababa - I always find it amazing that bigots who prefer ignorance and propaganda to knowledge use disinformation terms to refer to unbiased researchers and eyewitnesses and investigative reporters.
"We do share the implied view of Cantekin and Belkin that vaccine safety is a great concern and must be an area of constant vigilance. However, we also believe that protection against HBV infection is of great benefit to all members of our society. Initiating the vaccination series with an initial dose of HBV vaccine during the newborn period is the best strategy to ensure the highest level of protection.

EastBeach: Of course Big Oil is involved. 350.org,, Water Guardian's founder, has gotten $10 million in funding from the Rockefeller Foundation. Bill McKibben is a Rockefeller Foundation trustee.It's probably safe to mention Big Oil. It's the scruffy litle grassroots outfit that McKibben talks about that funds WGs.

Psychopaths with no conscience, no empathy, no remorese, parasitic lifestyles like serial bankruptcies, numerous frauds, etc, are known as some of the nicest, most normal people around. It's how they're able to do so much damage. The real problem is that SBPD chose her to do PR; these are characteristics Sanchez wants to use to represent the department, and it's an indication of a serious sick organizational mentality.

Psychopath or narcissistic peronality disorder are probably better terms than sociopath. There are different opinions: Robert Hare (Hare's psychopath checklist) considers sociopathy a survival adaptation - kids growing up in war zones with incredible brutality, MS13 members digging through body dumps looking for parents and siblings, etc.They're considered emotional illnesses, not mental illnesses. They've been reclassified in DSM-V, but Cluster B disorders in DSM-IV included ASP (anti-social), histrionic and narcissistic (maybe others). They're always legally competent.The ones we should be worried about are the psychopath depopulation advocates who believe they're entitled to drum up phony computer algorithms and propaganda to justify murdering 95% of the world's population. Their overpopulation disinformation is as bogus as AGW and IPCC's ridiculously inaccurate computer algorithms, and the UN was formed by them, and the IPCC to sell AGW as an excuse for its depopulation agenda.
Hare has lobbied to have elected officials tested to eliminate psychopaths in government - fMRI shows their abnormal emotional processing. As loon pointed out, psychopaths in government aren't hot on this idea.The psychopaths in government - Obama et al, have come up with labeling the people loon mentions as having "oppositional defiant disorder". Hitler did this too; dissent was considered mental illness that got you locked up with psychopathic Nazi scientists as lab animals.
