Haiti’s government has suspended a fuel price hike that sparked two days of civil unrest and the cancellations of international flights by U.S. carriers to the island-nation.

Condemning the violence and destruction of businesses that occurred as a result of the announced hikes, Prime Minister Jack Guy Lafontant took to Twitter shortly before 2 p.m. Saturday to make the announcement.

“The government announces the suspension of the price adjustment measure for petroleum products until further notice,” he tweeted.

Two weeks ago, Nature Geosciences published a paper that got a little bit of attention:

Palaeoclimate constraints on the impact of 2 °C anthropogenic warming and beyond

The few headlines it did generate often were misleading.

The abstract:

Over the past 3.5 million years, there have been several intervals when climate conditions were warmer than during the pre-industrial Holocene. Although past intervals of warming were forced differently than future anthropogenic change, such periods can provide insights into potential future climate impacts and ecosystem feedbacks, especially over centennial-to-millennial timescales that are often not covered by climate model simulations. Our observation-based synthesis of the understanding of past intervals with temperatures within the range of projected future warming suggests that there is a low risk of runaway greenhouse gas feedbacks for global warming of no more than 2 °C. However, substantial regional environmental impacts can occur. A global average warming of 1-2 °C with strong polar amplification has, in the past, been accompanied by significant shifts in climate zones and the spatial distribution of land and ocean ecosystems. Sustained warming at this level has also led to substantial reductions of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, with sea-level increases of at least several metres on millennial timescales. Comparison of palaeo observations with climate model results suggests that, due to the lack of certain feedback processes, model-based climate projections may underestimate long-term warming in response to future radiative forcing by as much as a factor of two, and thus may also underestimate centennial-to-millennial-scale sea-level rise.

The idea that paleoclimate data indicate changes in localities and global temperature are greater than short-term models predict is not new.

Rather, this paper expands the discussion of changes in regional climates in three past periods:

Here, we focus on the climate system responses during the three best-documented warm intervals, the HTM, LIG and MPWP (Figs. 1 and 2), and address spatial patterns of environmental changes and the forcing leading to them.

The conclusion is that long term (millennial) changes end up being larger than short-term models:

Past warmer worlds were caused by different forcings, which limits the applicability of our findings to future climate change. Nevertheless, we can conclude that even for a 2 °C (and potentially 1.5 °C) global warming—as targeted in the Paris Agreement—significant impacts on the Earth system are to be expected. Terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems will spatially reorganize to adapt to warmer conditions as they did in the past (for example, during the HTM or LIG). However, human interferences other than climate change, such as pollution, land-use, hunting/fishing and overconsumption, appear to have a much larger influence on species extinction and diversity loss than climate warming.

However, one important point the authors make, is that they did not explore what would happen if the business-as-usual (as in, Trump’s burn-it-all plan) course of action holds fast during the whole century. The atmospheric changes which they investigated most would put CO2 levels at max around 500ppm, as in the Pliocene.

Burn-it-all (which, I must reemphasize, is what Trump wants to do) will change the atmosphere considerably more than that, more similar to Eocene-Miocene atmospheres.

Trying to simulate changes in ecosystems, sea-level, etc. at these extreme changes in the atmosphere are problematic, for several reason, and the geography of the Earth during the Eocene was different than today (e.g., no Central America).

What the authors did include about modeling the Eocene suggests that long term sea level rise in a business-as-usual world is dramatic (40 meters or more), averaging between 1cm and 1inch per year.

But the great moral question is this (and this is why headlines from climate research are ignored, if they are written at all) - should we care about the future?

It know it’s supposed to be “just sports”, but between their personally unappealing game style and all things Russian in general ever since 2016, my response was a very vocal shout of “F*CK YEAH!”

Something tells me i’m not even remotely alone tonight…

I was standing on the curb earlier (UES, Manhattan) and heard an enormous cheer ring out from the bar on the other corner: I got into a cab, and the cheerful cabby (who was definitely from “somewhere else” - and definitely NOT Croatian) informed me that Croatia had just beaten Russia on the last PK - no, you’re not alone: Mother Russia seems to have very few friends (or fans) these days….

But yeah, this inanity would be embarrassing tweeted out by some high-school jerky-boy: that this is The President spouting off this junk is mortifying.

It’s not as hot here today as yesterday.

Today the air flowing from the southeast from Mexico over the mountains forced some storms in the mountains, and then they are blown west over the coastal areas.

No rain, but the clouds do keep the sun from beating down on us.

It’s more humid, though, so the tradeoff isn’t completely so good.

This is one of the great free-loading scams in the history of American journalism, right up there with my sports writing pal who expensed a “full body massage” in Korea and got reimbursed.

the best ever freeloading scam in the history of American journalism, I heard this story in my college journalism class 40 years ago…

A NYT reporter who’d been in Asia for a number of years, gets transferred back to the States. He wires his boss “assume you’ll pay to transport my junk?” and the boss replies of course, naturally. Not realizing the reporter was referring to his houseboat…

Well, that quote from the DPRK (presumably official?) is fairly badly-worded. Even leaving aside the stuff about that “test ground”*, it doesn’t make clear (or establish a connection) between that “public declaration on the end of war” and what exactly is meant by “build a peace regime on the Korean Peninsula” .
I really don’t like the sound of that last clause: I’m sure that to Kim and his regime, their concept of “Peace” is probably the kind that follows “Rest In….”

*which I still think, given the Norks’ history of these things, has probably already been blown up by a botched test.

A Republican congressional candidate in a Kansas race Democrats are targeting in November told an audience at a party meeting this month that “outside of Western civilization there is only barbarism.”
The comments from State Sen. Steve Fitzgerald, a candidate seeking the Republican nomination in the race to replace retiring Rep. Lynn Jenkins, came at a July 2 meeting of the Leavenworth County Republican Party. During his more-than-30-minute speech, Fitzgerald lamented the fact that people believe “Western civilization is the problem,” argued that Christendom is “under attack” and doubled down on his previous statement that Planned Parenthood is worse than a Nazi concentration camp.
“We are being told that Western civilization is the problem in the world,” Fitzgerald said, according to video provided by a Democratic operative. “Outside of Western civilization there is only barbarism.”
He added: “Our Judeo-Christian ethic is what is civilization. And that is what is under attack here and abroad. It also goes by a different name. Christendom. It’s under attack. And even speaking about it can bring you under attack. It has brought me under attack.”

To add a thought (I have so few, I must nurture them)—they’re also big on that it is conspiracy to get back at Rosenstein for last week—somebody points out that the investigation started in April, but that doesn’t even register at all in their pea brains. They are just pathetic.

Pour that on top, open the vents, fill the water pan.

This one smoked for 8 hours, with me barely having to adjust the vents. I got a Weber iGrill, so I can follow the internal temp of the butt on my iPhone (bluetooth).

Well, I remember when the Republican seduction of the WWC began and it was with the book The Real Majority written by Richard Scammon and Ben Wattenberg who formed the nucleus of the Neoconservative movement. Spiro Agnew took the book as gospel and started pushing what they referred to as “Social Issues”

I remember dealing with Wattenberg when I belonged to Social Democrats, USA. SDUSA became the incubators of the neocon movement. I had heated arguments with them, their obsession with destroying Communism overrode everything else.

Which is why I left SDUSA and kept my DSOC membership going.

It was. The performance ended with about ten seconds of dead silence, and then a prolonged period of people slowly standing and polite quiet applause and crying. It was a powerful moment.

The irony to me is identity politics is crucial to both leftist and rightist politics so Sanders and Trump fans to me are both guilty of what they accuse others of doing.

True, but the Bernie Bros are actual Libtards and the Trumpettes are the base. There’s a big difference. One is fringe, the other is a base for the Party in control.

A few have criticized his behavior, but not with the fervor that should attend such an obvious display of treason. McCain deserves a pass because of his illness although he did issue one strong statement of objection.

Because the basic beliefs of Putin and a great many GoP leaders are essentially the same.

Putin is about making himself and his oligarchy structure the richest people around, and manipulating traditional Russians through the Russian Orthodox church.

Three quotes by Frank Herbert:

“Belief can be manipulated. Only knowledge is dangerous.”

“When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong — faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it’s too late.”

“Don’t give over all of your critical faculties to people in power, no matter how admirable those people may appear to be. Beneath the hero’s facade you will find a human being who makes human mistakes. Enormous problems arise when human mistakes are made on the grand scale available to a superhero. And sometimes you run into another problem. It is demonstrable that power structures tend to attract people who want power for the sake of power and that a significant proportion of such people are imbalanced — in a word, insane”

Well, at fundamental level, that’s just terrifying, isn’t it, if it’s true.

That would mean that the party in control of the Congress, the Senate, and the Executive, is being blackmailed by a hostile foreign power. Which would mean that we are totally fucked.

And I don’t believe it for a second.

Is it possible that Putin has Komprimat on Drumpf? Yes, it is absolutely reasonable to assume that Russian financing for Drumpf’s real estate deals, after his bankruptcies made him toxic in then US, came with a caveat that he would launder Russian money as a quid pro quo. Putin doesn’t need a pee tape, although he may very well have one. He’s got a money trail which, frankly, is much more damaging, legally. A pee tape is embarrassing, but a history of money laundering Russian money through the US is a high crime and misdemeanor. That would end his Presidency immediately.

But Putin would be an idiot to release that information. If you have an asset on a string, and Putin is former KGB, why fuck the Golden Goose? Putin wants the sanctions on the members of the 100 families who actually run Russia lifted. That’s the play.

Is it possible that they have Komprimat on other R’s? Yes. Also possible. But enough to swing the entire US Government? I doubt it.

But I would take a very close look at who went to Russia on the Fourth of July rather than staying home to attend parades in their home states. That’s just odd, and I don’t like odd.

The fact that some of the attendees are already saying that sanctions on members of the 100 families that actually run Russia should be lifted is telling.

Russia is a kleptocracy. The kleptocrats want to protect their positions. Anyone who went to Moscow this week is, by definition, a useful idiot.

I pretty much agree with you. I think the biggest issue is “To Follow the Money”. I’m willing to bet that millions of Russian dollars were funneled into the RNC, NRA, and various Republican campaigns. These funds were so well hidden that many of the recipients never even realized they accepted Russian money. The sad part is when these funds are exposed to daylight, many Amerikans won’t give a damn.

This is the truth. I know some of these people. They have never had it better. Not all 1%ers are heartless scoundrels (ahem!) but our system has had an exponentially greater tendency to move such people to the top since Reagan’s time. I don’t doubt that the Russians also have massive kompromat on those who don’t otherwise identify with them so wholeheartedly, but the main driving force is pathological greed and privilege.

He’s the one who chooses to (over)stay there because he’s too chickenshit to risk arrest by Metropolitan Police. IOW he’s free to leave the embassy any time he wants.

On another topic, the World Cup.

Belgium vs. France.

This would have been a great final. Lukaku, Hazard, and de Bruyne are the best offensive trio left in the competition, better than Griezmann, Mbappe and and Pogba for France. The crucial player is N’golo Kante, the defensive midfielder of France. When Leicester won the Premier League in 2016, the word was that water covered 2/3 of the planet and Kante covered the rest. He went to Chelsea the next year and they won the Premier League. He’s the best defensive midfielder on the planet.

If Belgium can take Kante out of the game, they’ll win. But he’s a brilliant player in space.

England vs. Croatia.

Dog bless Croatia for knocking the Russians out on PK’s! That was a brutal game, 120 minutes long, physical as hell, and it just drained everyone on the pitch. Luka Modric may be the fastest and most creative attacking midfielder left in the competition. Love him. But he’s the heart and soul of a team that without him is any other team that is out of this competition. In addition, their Goalie tweaked his hammy today which may or not be a thing (after all, he stopped a PK today while another shot was wide).

I always expect England to self-implode. They have done it so consistently over the past decades that it’s almost a given. And yet, this year…

But Gareth Southgate, their manager, has them actually believing in themselves. They are a very young team compared to those of the past.

They have been brilliant on set pieces. That means that he has coached them really, really hard and they have bought into the system. The vast majority of their goals in regulation have been from Penalty Kicks or set pieces, mainly corners. Their Center Fullbacks, defensive players who only come forward for corner kicks, have three goals, which is almost unheard for an English side.

So, predictions.

N’golo Kante steps up his game and disrupts the speed of the Belgium offensive breakaways. The speed of Mbappe is too much for the Belgium defense. France wins 2-1

England attacks an exhausted Croatian team early and overwhelms them, leading 2-0 at the half and winning 4-1.

Speaking of movies, I tried watching the latest attempt to make a Fantastic Four movie. OMFG, it sucked. I got about a third of the way through and gave up. I rarely do that with a movie, but this was one where I wanted to throw things at the screen.

I called it a night when the boy scientists (the girl scientist, played by Kate Mara whose talents were wasted, stayed behind for some reason) decide to scale a cliff to reach the green, glowing stuff which is actually all around them but whatever let’s go down there. So, they just happen to have pitons and a scaling rope, and what do they do? They climb down the mountain. They could have rappelled. Much faster, better pacing. But no, we get to watch these scientist dudes tediously climb down a cliffside.

It’s a Razzie winner, and now I can see why.

While the Trump Administration still works to undermine the exchanges and drive premiums higher, Medicaid expansion remains very popular and is slowly spreading to more and more red and purple states. An incremental step toward universal health care may be to allow states which expand Medicaid to make it a public option to private health insurance on the exchanges. Making Medicaid universally available as a less expensive option to private insurance if states expand Medicaid would put a lot of pressure on red states to expand as private insurance premiums soar ever higher.

In Chicago, organizers planned for about 125 people, but the rally drew approximately 35…In Palm Beach, Fla., about 100 people were expected to rally at a park; 13 came, including organizer Ashley Johnson, three speakers and the parents of two of the speakers…In the District, a few dozen high schoolers, college students and recent graduates came together near the Capitol for the Second Amendment march…

And he sees the Queen of Diamonds!

Trump is clearly working for Putin - the question is why is the whole Republican party in Washington on board with this? None really seem to be calling him out as a collaborator. A few have criticized his behavior, but not with the fervor that should attend such an obvious display of treason. McCain deserves a pass because of his illness although he did issue one strong statement of objection. What is wrong with them — are they all such cowards because of the blackmail Putin has on them or their fear of the Trump base? Or are they just bought servants? I just don’t really understand this at all.

Trump is much more popular with the GOP base than congressional Republicans are, and GOP critics of Trump have a tendency to lose their primaries, or, like Flake and Corker, they are quitting. The GOP belongs to Trump now; Republicans either get on the Trump Train or get out of politics.

re: #223 austin_blue

On another topic, the World Cup.

Belgium vs. France.

This would have been a great final. Lukaku, Hazard, and de Bruyne are the best offensive trio left in the competition, better than Griezmann, Mbappe and and Pogba for France. The crucial player is N’golo Kante, the defensive midfielder of France. When Leicester won the Premier League in 2016, the word was that water covered 2/3 of the planet and Kante covered the rest. He went to Chelsea the next year and they won the Premier League. He’s the best defensive midfielder on the planet.

If Belgium can take Kante out of the game, they’ll win. But he’s a brilliant player in space.

England vs. Croatia.

Dog bless Croatia for knocking the Russians out on PK’s! That was a brutal game, 120 minutes long, physical as hell, and it just drained everyone on the pitch. Luka Modric may be the fastest and most creative attacking midfielder left in the competition. Love him. But he’s the heart and soul of a team that without him is any other team that is out of this competition. In addition, their Goalie tweaked his hammy today which may or not be a thing (after all, he stopped a PK today while another shot was wide).

I always expect England to self-implode. They have done it so consistently over the past decades that it’s almost a given. And yet, this year…

But Gareth Southgate, their manager, has them actually believing in themselves. They are a very young team compared to those of the past.

They have been brilliant on set pieces. That means that he has coached them really, really hard and they have bought into the system. The vast majority of their goals in regulation have been from Penalty Kicks or set pieces, mainly corners. Their Center Fullbacks, defensive players who only come forward for corner kicks, have three goals, which is almost unheard for an English side.

So, predictions.

N’golo Kante steps up his game and disrupts the speed of the Belgium offensive breakaways. The speed of Mbappe is too much for the Belgium defense. France wins 2-1

England attacks an exhausted Croatian team early and overwhelms them, leading 2-0 at the half and winning 4-1.

England v. France; their biggest battle since Waterloo (if it happens)!

In economic news, the prime age (25-54) employment population ratio ticked up to 79.3%, the highest level in a decade. This barometer shows the economy isn’t at full employment and still has room for continued expansion, since the ratio was above 80% for much of the nineties. This also explains why pay raises remain sluggish despite the low headline unemployment rate; there is still a pool of prime age adults not working for employers to draw from.

Something I mentioned the other day that I got pushback on was breaking California into 3 states to give it more US senators. I know there are rightwing proposals to do that to create more rural GOP states, but using the same kind of data and software the Republicans use for gerrymandering, California could be turned into 3 separate states which all have Democratic majorities, giving them the chance to elect 4 more Democratic senators (right now the smallest 22 states have about the same population as California does, but 42 more Senators). It would also give Californians 4 more electors in presidential elections. Along with adding at least two more Supreme Court seats and making DC and Puerto Rico states, this could go a long way toward breaking white minority control of the federal government

re: #312 Big Beautiful Door

Something I mentioned the other day that I got pushback on was breaking California into 3 states to give it more US senators. I know there are rightwing proposals to do that to create more rural GOP states, but using the same kind of data and software the Republicans use for gerrymandering, California could be turned into 3 separate states which all have Democratic majorities, giving them the chance to elect 4 more Democratic senators (right now the smallest 22 states have about the same population as California does, but 42 more Senators). It would also give Californians 4 more electors in presidential elections. Along with adding at least two more Supreme Court seats and making DC and Puerto Rico states, this could go a long way toward breaking white minority control of the federal government

Not the way the initiative is written. It’s locking in two new Republican gerrymanders.

When you consider that the economy is still performing well that is a shockingly bad number.

Unless Trump’s trade war starts putting a severe bite into employment soon, and I don’t expect it to,

The first bit of the tradewar doesn’t need to cause a large amount of unemployment to have a big effect.

The total population of Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa and Kentucky, North and South Dakota is only 16 million people. Each ton of soybeans that China doesn’t buy from those states is about $300 dollars removed from those states economies.

Seeing as China is ordering tens of millions of tons of soybean from Brazil, that is billions of dollars per yearthat is going to go missing from those states economies.

However, even if unemployment reached 20% in those states, it would have only a very small effect on the national unemployment rate. But it would make running as a Republican in those states be quite a challenge.

It may have hit over 130 in there with the outside at 117. I’m sure gardens all over the southland are hard hit. Poor lady is in tears.

True, no doubt about that unfortunately.

The other day, while waiting for the tram, I popped into a little shop and bought a 7-Up; it’s been ages. So opened it and noticed it tasted different than the last one I (somewhat dimly) remember.

Looked at the ingredients on the can (in Polish and Czech) and it contained sugar - not HFCS.

If you’re talking about Carlin, I tend to agree. One of the greatest stand-ups ever, with a sharp mind to boot? Sure.

There was also a strong strain of nihilism that ran through his stuff as he got older. To be brutally frank, if Carlin were alive in November 2016, I could absolutely see him going the Susan Sarandon route: telling people to stay home, and then lecturing people that Trump as POTUS was the only way to course correct America. Because for all his liberal bona fides, he was a rich white dude who wouldn’t be immediately impacted in the current environment.

Honestly, Jon Stewart was sort of pulling that shit as well. IIRC, he was interviewed the day after by Charlie Rose and was all “Well, Democrats, this is your fault for not nominating Bernie.”

I’m standing by what I’ve previously said. Putin has Kompromat on these guys and he’s blackmailing a whole bunch of Republicans.

I’m waiting to see if the revelation the NRA was taking in Russian Oligarch money to use as campaign donations to Republicans running for office figures into Republican Russian thinking.

I asked my Ohio senate buddy* Rob Portman about that since he was given a lot of money in the back door for advertising in his last election. They can say Rob only got a small donation but they then dance around who bought all those Portman ads.

I think the NRA and the Russian money worked that way for a lot of Republicans.

Dayton Daily News - NRA spent millions to keep Ohio Sen. Portman in office

WASHINGTON —
During the 2016 election, the National Rifle Association and its donors gave Sen. Rob Portman’s campaign $9,900 — a drop in the bucket of the $25 million Portman raised and an argument against the notion that the gun rights group had “bought” the support of the state’s junior senator.

But three other numbers are also worth considering: $242,708; $1.55 million and $3.06 million.

The first represents the amount that the NRA spent on independent expenditures such as ads supporting Portman in 2016. The second represents the amount spent opposing Democrat Ted Strickland, who Portman defeated in 2016.

The third is what the organization has spent on Portman since 1990, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

The oft-repeated refrain from gun control advocates after mass shootings is that gun rights groups used political donations in order to influence lawmakers to oppose gun control measures.

But it’s a little more complicated than that. Instead, say those who monitor the NRA and other gun rights groups, the goal is to make sure that the seats are never held by anyone who might support new restrictions in the first place.

So, in poking around the web, came across this:

History is bringing back In Search Of, based on the iconic 1970s franchise, as a 10-episode docuseries, hosted and executive produced by Emmy-nominated Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Snowden).

The new series, from Propagate Content, Universal Television Alternative Studio and Before the Door Pictures, will examine unexplained phenomena from all over the world. UFOs and paranormal mysteries remain relevant as the Pentagon recently acknowledged a secret UFO program which investigated sightings of UFOs from 2007 - 2012.

From the mythical to the scientific, each episode will follow Quinto as he investigates a different subject within a dynamic theme - such as alien encounters, mysterious creatures, UFO sightings, time travel and artificial intelligence - and searches for the truth to some of the world’s greatest mysteries. In Search Of will explore enigmas told through the eyes of witnesses and scholars with a personal connection to the phenomenon and include immersive demonstrations and experiments that contextualize each episode’s theme.

deadline.com

Cool…..yeah, I know that In Search Of……. was quite often little more than the woowoo of the era, but I enjoyed it. And it’s nice to see Zachary Quinto taking the reins (nice little homage/tribute to Leonard Nimoy).

And I sure hope they use an arrangement of the original theme music. I loved that music!
