Declare Emergency Four Trial Continued

Declare Emergency Four trial continued to December 14th. At the trial, evidence was presented that showed police had not given the 3 warnings required by law for first amendment protesters. This evidence is accepted, but a motion to dismiss the trial outright failed to pass. Body camera footage showed all people arrested within 5-10 seconds of the initial warning (there were 7 arrests). The police and government are arguing that substantial risk was in play and therefore the arrests were necessary. However, the government was not able to prove this with testimony or video evidence. It's unclear why the judge was unwilling to dismiss the case, but the prosecutor did give a 'voracious' speech about how the case should not be dismissed, which had more emotion than facts presented.

Nuclear Nightmares

One of the biggest nuclear projects in the world is being built in Turkey (Akkuyy) right beside the Mediterranean coastline. 4 huge reactors. Meanwhile scientists tell us the West Antarctic ice sheet melting is irreversible. Go figure.

We’ve Got a Fever

   The GFS forecast is for a near record anomaly for the global 2-meter surface temperature to occur over the next few days. Today our little planet has a global fever of 1.79°C above the 1850-1900 IPCC baseline.
   Will we breach 2.0°C in the next five days? I'm taking the under.

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
