Re: The 2016 Presidential race

I guess this is good news if it works out.

Trump says SoftBank will invest $50 billion in the US, aiming to create 50,000 jobs

Every cabinet, department, and agency appointment seems to be someone who will seek to corrupt and destroy their institution.

Re: The 2016 Presidential race

http://www.jsonline.com/story/news/poli … /95929564/

The state Department of Natural Resources recently scrubbed language from an agency web page on the Great Lakes that said humans and greenhouse gases are the main cause of climate change.

The DNR now says the subject is a matter of scientific debate.

The department made the changes on Dec. 21, striking out whole sentences attributing global warming to human activities and rising levels of carbon dioxide.

It’s the most recent example of the DNR removing information related to climate change. More broadly, the changes reflect how the administration of Republican Gov. Scott Walker has de-emphasized the subject since he took office in 2011.

In the latest changes, the DNR says of climate change, “as it has done throughout the centuries, the earth is going through a change. The reasons for this change at this particular time in the earth’s long history are being debated and researched by academic entities outside the Department of Natural Resources.”

Officials replaced this wording:

“Earth’s climate is changing. Human activities that increase heat-trapping ('greenhouse') gases are the main cause.”

The old text goes on to say “scientists agree” that the Great Lakes region will see longer summers and shorter winters, decreased ice cover and changes in rain and snow patterns “if climate change patterns continue.”

Blogger Jim Rowen, a critic of the Walker administration’s environmental policies, first reported the revised passages on Monday.

DNR spokesman Jim Dick said in an email that the “updated page reflects our position on this topic that we have communicated for years, that our agency regularly must respond to a variety of environmental and human stressors from drought, flooding, wind events to changing demographics.

“Our agency must be ready to respond to each of these challenges. Adaptation has been our position on this topic.

“As you know the causes and effects of any changes in climate are still being debated and research on the matter is being done in academic circles outside DNR.”

While some scientists have painted doubt for the reason why the planet is warming, the vast majority of climate scientists agree that burning of fossil fuels has increased global greenhouses gases in the atmosphere and has caused warming.

A 2014 United Nations report that surveyed the latest science of climate change found “human influence on the climate system is clear, and recent anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases are the highest in history.”

The report — the U.N.'s fifth since 1990 — also found “warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and since the 1950s, many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. The atmosphere and (oceans) have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, and sea level has risen.”

Under Walker, climate issues have not been a high priority. He has been critical of President Barack Obama’s climate initiatives. Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel joined other like-minded states in 2015 in a federal lawsuit opposing regulations to limit carbon emissions from power plants.

The DNR also has recently removed a teaching guide on climate change from its website, and according to the agency, it is turning it over to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

In recent years, DNR officials have removed other information devoted to global warming, but other information is still intact.

For example, a web page devoted to landfills and waste says, “Climate change poses a serious threat.”

“We now have a clearer understanding of the role waste and materials management plays in global climate change and, most importantly, the opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions …”

In contrast, the DNR has taken down a trove of information on former Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle’s Task Force on Global Warming. The 2008 report, which sought ways to reduce carbon emissions, can still be found on an online archive known as the Wayback Machine.

Minnesota and Michigan maintain extensive information on climate change and its effect at their respective environmental agencies.

Paul Robbins, director of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at UW-Madison, said he is not surprised by the alterations.

“When climate change gets so politicized, you can imagine agencies and its leaders haggling over wording,” he said.

Robbins said UW scientists have worked with DNR field staff for years on how to adapt to a warming climate, although with shrinking DNR budgets, “it’s not as high of a priority as it was in the past.”

Bill Davis, president of the John Muir chapter of the Sierra Club in Madison, described the scrubbing as “unfortunate, but not surprising — they’ve been doing it pretty much since Walker got into office.

“This is an asset, paid for with public funds, and the fact it was scrubbed off its website is not good public policy.”

Said Joel Brammeier, president of Chicago-based Alliance for the Great Lakes:

I don’t understand the need for the changes. To me, it looks like they are trying to cover up a debate that really isn’t happening.”

Climate change is affecting the Great Lakes, Brammeier said, citing as one example Green Bay’s dead zone, which has been linked to runoff and warm summer water temperatures.

Dick, the DNR spokesman, said the agency has two UW-Madison links on climate change on its updated Great Lakes page.

He also emphasized the agency is working on ways Wisconsin can adjust to a changing climate.

FUUUUUUUUUUCK.  Watch this roll out nationally within a hundred days.  Bradley Foundation and John Birch Society are based in WI, and both heavily fund propaganda for fossil fuel and plastics industries - we're a testpiece, and now that we have a Federal govt under full GOP control and a USSC that can't issue more than a split decision on anything because the the GOP on the national level is a bunch of traitors.

Re: The 2016 Presidential race

If I wanted to look at some key factors today and save them to look back at 4 years from now as barometer of the next years, what would be good to look at. Stock market, my health insurance premiums, unemployment, prices gas? Things that would be an indicator of how I was personally affected and the country as a whole.

Every time an election comes up people come up with all sorts of different numbers for the same data. If I can save some pertinent info from today, then I could have a better understanding for myself.

Re: The 2016 Presidential race

WEll, you are posting in english

If in 4 years we are posting in Russian, I know that'll be bad.


Single point data isn't always useful- if you're looking at economic data, there is usually some inertia, and the trendlines you've seen over the past several years will he helpful.

Do you use Yodlee or anything similar to look at your portfolio?

For me, the value of my 401k and rates of return would be important...

Reinstate preexisting condition discrimination

Remove children's parental coverage to age 26

Remove funding for CHIP

Reinstate lifetime insurance cap


The Republicans in Washington are basically just monster people who relish making their fellow human beings suffer. Nothing matters to them. Such disgusting humans.

Sorry. I was late to the news so forgive the false impression that this just happened. https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/ … _Floor.htm

It's the details missing from the repeal headlines. It's part of the process for establishing budgetary agendas, but is alarming to me nonetheless. I know they want to move forward with repeal, however ill advised that is, but reading the components is freshly disheartening. Apologies for the poor relation of info.
