California man who relied on oxygen pump died 12 minutes after PG&E cut power to prevent fires

From Daily Mail: A Northern California man dependent on oxygen died just 12 minutes after Pacific Gas and Electric shut down power to the area as part of an effort to prevent fires.

El Dorado County Fire Chief Lloyd Ogan said on Friday that a call was placed to the fire department from Pollock Pines after 3.30am on Wednesday. Crews arrived at the scene and found Robert Mardis Sr., 67, unresponsive and were unable to revive him, according to the Mountain Democrat.

Ogan said the man’s oxygen equipment required power, but could not say whether the shutdown was related to his death.

Mardis Sr.’s daughter, Marie Aldea, told FOX 40 that her father had several health issues and she believes the power cuts were involved in his death.

She said: ‘He had health issues. He had really bad COPD, which didn’t help, and he had congestive heart failure and other health issues, but the power going off and him not being able to get to his oxygen is, I believe, is what did it.’

Mardis Sr.’s oxygen tank reportedly lost power during PG&E’s power shutdown and he was unable to reach his battery-operated oxygen tank in time.

‘He’ll never see my kids get married, he’ll never see his grandchildren,’ Aldea said. ‘How do you fix that? You don’t. You can’t. Something got taken away from me that I can never get back, and I will miss my father forever.’

PG&E spokesman Jeff Smith said it has not been able to confirm the accuracy of the report.The power company told Fox 40: ‘We have no information on incident and have not been able to confirm the accuracy of the report. We refer you to local officials in El Dorado County.’

Governor Gavin Newson spoke out on Friday about the tragic death. ‘Losing a family member is horrific and to the extent this was the reason why, I hope that is investigated and I hope those responsible are held to account,’ he said.

The news of his death comes on the heels of the deaths of two others from the wildfires on Thursday: a man in his 50s who suffered cardiac arrest and Lois Arvickson, 89, after a fire swept through her mobile home park. It’s unclear whether the unnamed victim was pronounced dead at his home or in another location.

Winds gusted dangerously as forecast before calming in Northern California, where PG&E faced hostility and second-guessing over its widespread shutoffs.

Governor Gavin Newsom criticized PG&E and ordinary customers complained about the inconveniences caused by the unprecedented blackouts that began midweek.

PG&E, though, suggested it was already seeing the wisdom of its decision borne out as gusts topping 77mph raked the San Francisco Bay Area amid a bout of dry, windy weather.

‘We have found multiple cases of damage or hazards’ caused by heavy winds, including fallen branches that came in contact with overhead lines,’ said Sumeet Singh, a vice president for the utility company. ‘If they were energized, they could’ve ignited.’

Because of the dangerous weather in the forecast, PG&E cut power on Wednesday to an estimated two million people in an area. PG&E said on Friday that it has restored electricity to about 543,000 businesses and residences.

Another 195,000 customers had remained without power. Experts say a customer includes between two and three people. Areas without power includes Plumas, Yuba and Butte counties, where people are on their third day without electricity.

Butte County is where a fire started by PG&E equipment last year decimated the town of Paradise and killed 85 people.

The utility says power also remain out in of Kern County in the southern part of the state’s agricultural Central Valley, where strong winds prompted PG&E to cut power on Thursday.

The utility it was able to restore power after winds subsided and workers could inspect its power lines.

——————–

The coroner has determined that PG&E wasn’t at fault for this man’s death. That was quick…

Hanoi Jane arrested at climate change protest she organized in DC

Wouldn’t bother me one bit if they kept this womyn in jail for some time.

From Yahoo: Jane Fonda was arrested in Washington, D.C., Friday while taking part in a protest about climate change.

The actress, 81, shared that she would be at the protest retweeting messages from the Fire Drill Fridays account, a Twitter account named for a series of demonstrations she organized to protest political inaction around climate change.

In an email to USA TODAY, Ira Arlook of Fire Drill Fridays confirmed that Fonda was arrested amid the inaugural demonstration Friday.

U.S. Capitol Police Communications Director Eva Malecki told USA TODAY a total of “16 individuals” were arrested for “unlawfully demonstrating on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol.”

When reached by USA TODAY, a representative for Fonda could not immediately comment.

According to local outlet WUSA’s Mike Valerio, Fonda planned to get arrested. “She tells us she’ll be here *every* Friday into 2020 — demonstrate, get arrested, repeat,” he tweeted with photos of him interviewing the actress.

On the Fire Drill Fridays website, Fonda said she’s moved to D.C. “to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate.”

“Every Friday through January, I will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in,” she wrote. “We can’t afford to wait.”

Fonda has a history of controversial political activism, including her opposition to the Vietnam War. Fonda’s visit to North Vietnam in 1972 drew fierce backlash that persists today: She was dubbed “Hanoi Jane” and a traitor.

“I’m naive and I make mistakes,” Fonda said in the 2018 HBO documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts.” Of the infamous photo that showed her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, she says: “It was a betrayal. … I will go to my grave regretting that.”

This isn’t the first time Fonda has been arrested, either. According to her website, she was arrested for “drug smuggling” at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport in 1970.

“I was handcuffed and put in the Cleveland Jail, which is when the mug shot was taken,” she writes. “I was released on bond and months later, after every pill had been tested in a lab (with taxpayers money!) The charges were dismissed and there were a few paragraphs hidden in the back of papers that they were vitamins, not drugs.”

US government opens up 725,000 acres in California to oil, gas drilling

In the comment section, progressives are ticked off about this move. Works for me!

From SF Gate: The federal government has opened 725,000 acres in Central California to oil and gas drilling on land that has been off-limits since 2013.

The Bureau of Land Management issued its final decision Friday to allow oil and gas leases on plots that are mostly in the Central Valley, but also include parts of the Central Coast. The area includes parts of Monterey, San Benito and Fresno counties, and would allow for 32 new gas and oil development wells to be added.

The plan announced in May is part of a Trump administration goal to make the U.S. energy independent that has been criticized as a giveaway to industry.

Environmentalists who successfully blocked the Obama administration from opening the land to drilling criticized the new development.

The Center for Biological Diversity called the effort reckless and says it will continue to fight the government.

“This reckless move is the toxic convergence of Trump’s climate denial, loyalty to the oil industry and grudge against California,” Clare Lakewood, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, told The Hill. “Turning over these spectacular wild places to dirty drilling and fracking will sicken Californians, harm endangered species and fuel climate chaos. We’ll fight tooth and nail to make sure it doesn’t happen.”

The BLM says additional approval will be required for before any drilling.

Leonardo DiCaprio denounces climate change deniers at Global Citizen Festival

Hey Leo: Give up your own self-interests of flying via private jets and yachting around the world. And give up your world press tours for the sake of movie profits.

All of you Hollyweirdos are HYPOCRITES.

From Hollywood Reporter: Over 60,000 people piled into New York’s Central Park on Saturday night for the 2019 Global Citizen Festival to not only see performances by the likes of Queen + Adam Lambert and Pharrell Williams, but also hear from stars and activists about Global Citizen’s movement to end extreme poverty by 2030 and achieve the sustainable goals set forth by the United Nations.

Leonardo DiCaprio, a staunch environmental activist, took the stage to condemn the politicians who “have failed to live up to the promises” of the Paris Agreement, along with those who have responded to the recent Global Climate Strike by criticizing its leader, 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.

“Last Friday, young people led the world in strike. Millions of individuals did more than simply walk out of their schools and places of employment. They took a stand. They set an example of true leadership that our planet so desperately needs. These young people have said clearly, definitively and without fear, that the time for inaction is over,” said DiCaprio. “Yet, surprisingly, some have reacted to this movement with insulting tweets and negative talking points — individuals that seem to care more about profit and their own self-interests than about your own future. But we know that the climate youth movement is more important and crucial than at any time in human history.

The actor added that the scientific community has made this clear, “and unless you live in alternate reality, there is no more time for denial.”

Fellow actors Natalie Portman, Laverne Cox, Forest Whitaker and Kal Penn also highlighted other worthwhile causes. Dakota Johnson returned to the festival after sharing her phone number onstage last year, encouraging sexual assault survivors to call her and leave a voicemail telling their story.

“I received calls from six continents, 70 different countries, adding up to around 60 hours of real stories,” Johnson said. “These stories are from every age, and every gender, and 95 percent of them being women. The oldest called identified as 71, the youngest was 11.”

Progressive-led hysteria: Psychologists says kids are being damaged by climate change debate

From Daily Mail: School children are developing ‘eco-anxiety’ as climate change continues to dominate the news agenda, a leading psychologist has claimed.

The panic sparked by the climate change debate has raised fears that the mental wellbeing of young people is suffering.

Child psychologist Andrew Greenfield explained that ‘eco-anxiety’ comes from young people feeling ‘helpless’ about the environment.

‘[Eco-anxiety] is some form of anxiety about where the world is heading when it comes to climate change,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.

‘To some degree, the anxiety stems from kids lack of ability to control what is happening. They want change but they feel helpless to some degree to be able to get that change.’

More than 300,000 protesters in 110 towns and cities across Australia flooded the streets last Friday for the Global Strike 4 Climate.

The worldwide demonstrations were inspired by teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who first made headlines for a one-person climate strike outside the Swedish parliament a year ago.

Speaking about the protests, Mr. Greenfield said it was important children stood up for their beliefs but also stressed concerns about the implications. ‘I think it’s certainly great for kids to say what they think and have their voice, I think it’s got to happen in the right way,’ he said.

‘Encouraging kids to be able to take time off school, is that a great way to do it? I guess we’ve got to think about that. But I think it’s about power in masses and people feel as though they have the ability to control more what’s happening with a power in numbers.’

On Monday, 16-year-old Greta berated world leaders for their inaction on climate change at the UN summit in New York.

The speech captivated audiences around the world but divided opinion on how young people are coping with the threats of the future.

In her explosive speech, Greta said: ‘We are in a mass extinction. And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!’

Hypocrites: Celebrities supporting global climate strike

Let’s take a look at how these celebrities support saving the environment, shall we?

Actor Chris Hemsworth flies via private jets

Actress Kerry Washington’s former massive home

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ massive LA home

Willow Smith aboard a private yacht on a getaway to Italy

Model Giselle Bundchen flying via private jet

Until these hypocrites give up their massive homes, private jets, private yacht vacations and worldwide press tours, I’m going to ignore their faux concern for the environment.

At least he’s admitting what we all know: Demorats do use abortion as a means of birth control.

Margaret Sanger would be so proud.

No evidence of global warming increasing frequency of U.S. hurricanes

In a recent tweet, former Canadian prime minister, the harridan Kim Campbell, gleefully said she’s “rooting for” Hurricane Dorian to make a “direct hit” on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago, Florida. Campbell justifies her malicious wish, claiming that Trump’s refusal to “tackle” climate change and his plan to “remove limits on methan” are “making hurricanes more destructive”.

Campbell’s claim that man-made “climate change” is making hurricanes more destructive is exemplified in a recent New Republic article by meteorologist Eric Holthaus, in which he asserts that “as the Gulf of Mexico waters warm because of climate change, early-season hurricanes…could become more common.”

But in a guest post for Watts Up With That?, using what he calls “actual historical data” of the number of early season (June/July) landfalling hurricanes to strike the U.S., Bob Vislosky, Ph.D., points out that there simply is no empirical support for the claim that the number of hurricanes had increased since 1868.

Commenting on the chart below, Vislosky wrote that “despite 150+ years of global warming the frequency of early season hurricanes has actually declined by a small (but probably insignificant) amount, as evidenced by the dashed blue least-squares trend line. Certainly there is no clear evidence to support the…claim that they’re becoming more common.

 

Vislosky also highlights Eric Holthaus’ “blatant cherry picking and misrepresentation” of data to suit his purpose.

In his New Republic piece, Holthaus states that “in the 168 years of hurricane records, a July hurricane in Louisiana has only happened three times, and all of those occurrences have been within the past 40 years,” implying that climate change is causing the early-season July hurricanes since they all happened in just the last 40 years.

But Vislosky points out that although “on the surface” Holthaus’ assertion is factually correct, it is misleading because Holthaus focused solely on July hurricanes. A different picture, however, emerges if one includes not just July hurricanes, but ALL early-season hurricanes (in June and July) to strike Louisiana. Here’s the list:

  1. June 1886 (Unnamed, Cat 2)
  2. June 1934 (Unnamed, Cat 2)
  3. June 1957 (Audrey, Cat 3)
  4. July 1979 (Bob, Cat 1)
  5. July 1997 (Danny, Cat 1)
  6. July 2005 (Cindy, Cat 1)

The list shows that:

  • There is no overall trend in June/July hurricanes hitting Louisiana.
  • Ass much as half of all early-season hurricanes to strike Louisiana actually occurred before instead of after 1960 before “climate change” and its warming effects.

In other words, as Vislosky puts it, “by purposefully omitting the June early-season hurricanes from his analysis,” Holthaus “is guilty of cherry-picking data in the least and more likely guilty of fraudulent reporting to promote an agenda. As a meteorologist, Holthaus should be embarrassed by his research. Guess he figured nobody would fact-check his work.”
