We will likely detect many more of these large scale changes to the ecosystems of the world as the warming continues.  Many more surprises in store.

A wet bulb temperature of 95 deg. F would horrific.  The highest I have ever experienced is approximately 82 deg. F - it was awful.   :(

^^^ All while . . .

Poor Are Priced out of Healthful Eating ; Basics cost families more than food stamp benefits allow ; http://www.commondreams.org/headlines07/0129-06.htm ; by Phuong Cat Le

Couple that with the FACT that no one on earth can create a million 1$ widgets or anything else of the kind and sell them to earn $1 million dollars.  So, these bi-pedal vermin have to have their blood funnels stuck into the lives of others to have gained possession of that amount wealth while creating life-threatening scarcity as their fair compensation.  How honorable is that?

Energy News / Re: IEA report: US shale oil growth practically zero in 2017

The International Energy Agency’s Medium Term Oil Market Report 2015 included an interesting graph showing changes in US and Russian oil production for the next 5 years:

IEA MTOMR February 2015


The light blue columns show forecasts done in the 3rd quarter 2014, the dark blue columns those done in February 2015.
US growth is seen to decline to a meagre 160 kb/d by 2017. That is plausible given the high decline rates in tight oil fields.

In the 3 following years 19182018-2020 the IEA assumes US growth to be 300 kb/d. That of course is pure speculation. It would require the kind of high oil prices which have killed demand. In all likelihood, QE4 would also be needed which in turn would send the US$ down.

I think they meant 2018-2020, not 1918-2020 in the article.

These Nevada State Patrol arseholes almost shot the wife when she reached for her crutches.  The Patrol is locked, loaded, and ready for any encounter with elders.  I have a strong suspicion that less civilized societies value their elders.  This may even be the case within the cultures of the Middle East.

Warning: The shocking video contains images of a semi-nude senior citizen!
