Ecocidal Houston Oil Mafia Reap Whirlwind of Climate Change’s Hurricane Harvey.Exxon may lose billions.. Serves Them Right!.. you say. Only that the criminal billionaires scooping the loot from the great fossil fools nightmare will still have their mansions, private islands, yachts and offshore fortunes stashed away.
It’s the ordinary six and a half million of us in Houston, only one on six of whom have flood insurance, who will have their lives ruined.
The great irony is that fracking for gas and tight oil is both the greatest promotion of EXXON TEXAS and probably the greatest new addition to runaway climate chaos, though that can’t be proved since Trump abolished methane measurement.
But does the Texas fossil fuel industry cause Climate Chaos? Of course it does, though you can’t prove a specific case ”Harvey benefited from unusually toasty waters in the Gulf of Mexico. As the storm roared toward Houston last week, sea-surface waters near Texas rose to between 2.7 and 7.2 degrees Fahrenheit above average. These waters were some of the hottest spots of ocean surface in the world. The tropical storm, feeding off this unusual warmth, was able to progress from a tropical depression to a category-four hurricane in roughly 48 hours”. see footnote 1
Okay so the sea is much too hot, but there’s evidence Harvey’s weird stalling out on the coast may also be connected to climate change. Because of man made devastation and galloping desertification inland south Texas produces a semi permanent anticyclone which blocks entering storms. see footnote 2 Continue reading Harvey’s Climate Chaos Revenge also strikes the Poor… Exxon Knew and Profited
