Watch for this to happen more and more often.
Okay this proves global warming is a hoax. Nobody from Boston would say “Northeaster”. Hahahaha. It’s a “nor’easter”!!!
Lies lies lies.
I hurd Nor’easta.
Take da cotton outta ya e-ahz.
Or are you this Gale?
Poe’s Law strikes again! (And she clearly did say Northeaster with a pronounced “th”.)
Thanks Gail! I was not previously aware that Poe had a Law.
It’s impossible to navigate the intertubes without it!
I second that — I finally have a label to explain why I’m so misunderstood
Ok, Gail, stop kidding around!

This damage is a result of “high tide and strong swells” – and a rising ocean level due to global warming. Reporters need to learn the facts and report them.
Re: “Reporters need to learn the facts and report them.”
Last night I attended an open Meet Up gathering of local aetheists. You know, the people who are more likely to attend a Mensa meeting than a Pentacostal conclave.
A recently fired newspaperman showed up So I engaged him in a conversation that ranged from Oliver Stone’s brand new “The Untold History of the United States” screeening on Showtime on cable to the crux of Stone’s first episode which was that the Soviet Union won World War II and the U.S. was largely a stand-by observer of the real war. Then I tried to talk to the fool, er, journalist about Lt. Gen. Smedley Butler and the Business Plot and he was totally clueless about that as well.
After about 20 minutes with this 55 year old fool who still loved his mainstream media and spent an entire career learning nothing, I finally decided he simply needed a brain transplanted into his useless body.
“Reporter need to learn”? I met one last night who is so retarded after 30 years of effort he simply needs to…. not do any more damage.
The U.S. was largely a stand by observer? Jesus man I just watched the documentary and (while mostly correct on the HUGE role the Soviets played, although they totally gloss over the Soviet snipers, many of whom were women, something neither Germany or the U.S. would have supported) what I noticed was largely absent was the part of the war in the Far East. My great uncle actually fought in those horrific conditions on Guadalcanal and elsewhere on those god forsaken jungle islands in the Pacific ocean and was heavily decorated for it. I don’t think ‘observer to the real war’ was one of the medals he was given.
Kudos to your uncle for his service.
My point was not one about individual bravery. It was about statistics and strategy. For every American who lost his or her life during World War II, 100 Soviet Citizens perished.
The war broke out in the East in 1931 when the Japanese invaded Manchuria. It broke out in Europe in September, 1939.
Yet the U.S. did not become an active participant in the war until December, 1941. Fully 10 years after the war commenced in Asia and 2 1/4 years after hostilities commenced in Europe.
I’d say that qualifies as a fair description of what an “observer” would be doing.
Now, back to climate talk.
Yes quite true we have our own fascists to fight and a ‘Business Plot’ at home to murder democracy so the industrialists can create a fascist regime based exclusively on the carbon fuels they own. Kudos to you for enlightening him and Oliver Stone for enlightening Americans.
As the Minutemen said, This Ain’t No Picnic
I don’t have a tv, but i learn a lot about America’s untold history through watching Noam Chomsky lectures. America does some pretty horrible things to other countries…
Re: “i learn a lot about America’s untold history through watching Noam Chomsky lectures”
Chomsky is someone I greatly admire. You might also take a peek at the works of Howard Zinn and William Blum among others on the topic of the real history of U.S. imperialism.
Thanks – I scanned through the 1948 Italian material on the site, where the US is trading $$ for the manipulation of Italian democracy (trying to oust the communist party, etc.). Shoo…
Imagine if China said they would forgive 50% of our debt they hold, if only we’d replace folks in Congress with folks sympathetic to letting China do whatever it wants….
The ’48 elections in Italy were just the start. The big scandal which lasted for decades and involved some hare-brained state terrorism orchestrated by the CIA in Italy was called Operation Gladio. Here’s a tease on the topic:
We do pretty awful things to our own country too. If you ever get a chance read ‘A People’s History of the United States’ by Howard Zinn. Eye opening stuff.
Wow, two recommendations for Zinn (see Ray’s post above). OK, I’ll check it out….
Here’s an online version of Zinn’s “A People’s History…”:
As a companion piece, I recommend “Open Veins of Latin America” by Eduardo Galeano
Two days ago the same reporter posted a video on Youtube with the title-
Get ready for it……
Climate change factor in beach erosion?
And yes it is indepth and there is no bullshit ‘balance’ in it with Fort Lauderdale’s mayor talking about the effects of climate change and how they are here now.
Al Gore’s 2006 movie, An Inconvenient Truth, contains graphic projections of Florida land loss. I always thought this was the least believable part of his movie, until now (I had driven up/down that section of highway numerous times between 1970 and 1985 but never imagined it being washed away). Maybe Gore had much more reliable scientific sources than any of us ever imagined.
Well, he talked with scientists, like Lonnie Thompson, directly.
Not on the coast but still impressive….
