To continue a story I have mentioned, but isn't attracting much attention elsewhere:
"MOSCOW – Deaths in Moscow have doubled to an average of 700 people a day as the Russian capital is engulfed by poisonous smog from wildfires and a sweltering heat wave, a top health official said Monday.Moscow health chief Andrei Seltsovky blamed weeks of unprecedented heat and suffocating smog."
Well, I guess we are going to have to get to the point where 700 people a day are dying in some American city before the greedy corporate bastards and ignorant, stupid suckers finally wake up to what is going on in this country.
Until then, I guess we will just have to live with stories like this, from the "Astute Bloggers:"
"San Francisco, July temperatures coolest since 1971
Germany, first 6 months of 2010 coldest in 14 years
San Diego,, coldest July since 1933
Brazil, tropical fish freezing
Peru,declares emergency due to plunging temperatures"
And other local weather that they know damned well has nothing to say about climate change. What do these assholes get out of this that makes it worth killing their children just to get a few more hits with their outrageous lies online?
