NASA’s article begins down below:
Most climate scientists agree the main cause of the current global warming trend is human expansion of the “greenhouse effect”1 — warming that results when the atmosphere traps heat radiating from Earth toward space.
On Earth, human activities are changing the natural greenhouse. Over the last century the burning of fossil fuels like coal and oil has increased the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). This happens because the coal or oil burning process combines carbon with oxygen in the air to make CO2. To a lesser extent, the clearing of land for agriculture, industry, and other human activities has increased concentrations of greenhouse gases.

In case you didn’t already know NASA does more than just launch fancy rockets and satellites into space. They’re also big into monitoring meteorology all around the globe. They’ve been on record many times saying that climate change is very real and has been ongoing for the last 136 years. Scientists have also been on record saying there’s an over 90% chance it’s being exacerbated by humans (i.e. fossil fuel consumption) and will have disastrous results if things keeps going the same trajectory.

Many people myself included went out to watch the supermoon. It’s dubbed this because not only of its larger size on the far horizon, but the moon is closer than it’s been since January 26th, 1948. Unfortunately I went outside a little too late, also I didn’t have the proper camera lens to get a good shot of it anyway.
After heading back home I went on youtube and found an old video stream of the Japanese Selene probe orbiting the moon. At first I thought it was a 3D animation because the stream quality was so vibrant and rich looking. It is in fact real probe footage though its been edited and looped. I found watching this to be far more satisfying and the background music really added a dreamy vibe to it. Enjoy!
I’ve followed the 2016 Presidential election since almost the beginning and this is my brutally honest opinion on the anti-Trump protesters (sometimes rioters). I’m not sure how staging mass protest AFTER an election is going to accomplish anything. It seems that such demonstrations would’ve been much productive beforehand but okay…
I’ve been seeing these statements as of late from social justice warriors who are painting an overly simplistic picture. Saying this Trump victory is ultimately thanks to the alt-right’s bigotry and nothing else. Umm no there’s plenty of blame to pass around, such as the mass voter suppression by the DNC. Plus, there were many Hillary supporters who absolutely refused to listen to reason when pointing this all out. We warned that the wrong candidate was being backed and there might be a backlash later on. Many seemed obsessed in wanting a woman elected as president, regardless of the individual’s track record.
Unfortunately, it looks like our fears were correct thanks to this unusual poll that saw the warning signs in advance. Up to 40% registered Democrats decided to go for Trump and many of which were women! So it wasn’t just bigoted right-wing voters, the left managed to do a good job at alienating themselves from many ordinary hardworking Democrats.
Even if Jill Stein or Gary Johnson came close to “spoiling” the election for Trump or Hillary it’s ludicrous to blame someone for voting who they think is the most qualified. Frankly, it’s victim blaming to scold disenfranchised voters for refusing to back candidates who are part of the problem.

Lately on social media I’ve read a lot of people express big disappointment with the 2 party system. I had a feeling voter turnout for 3rd parties would be higher in this election cycle as compared to others in recent years. So far both Gary Johnson and Jill Stein of the Green party have grabbed roughly about 5% of the vote. Additionally, that number could rise higher since a few states are still counting ballots. While that percentage is not near enough to obtain electoral votes, the norm for 3rd party candidates is usually less than 1%.
I’ve have an interesting article copied down below that echoes and elaborates on some of the things I wrote about in my last blog.

Just my quick 2 cents soon after the election ended
In a nutshell they don’t have to build this pipeline. They can continue transporting oil by truck or railroad like they’ve been doing for decades (tho that’s risky too). They also want to frack on their land which puts their underground water supply in big jeopardy. Also at some point this pipeline goes underneath the river and that too is a major disaster waiting to happen.
This is their land that they’ve been living on for over well over a 100 years and these actions are in violation of the treaty the U.S. signed with them. They are being brutalized by the petroleum workers and police alike for simply defending their land and water supply. Wake up history is repeating itself.

Even The Young Turks who has been nothing but a cheerleader for Hillary since her nomination is beginning to have doubts. Not only are the “Deplorables” in social media questioning Clinton’s “strong” poll numbers but many of the BernieOrBust crowd who are now backing Jill Stein are also saying she’s at big risk of losing to Trump. I think that says a lot since they don’t really like either of these 2 big candidates.
