Fenómenos como el del impacto del gran huracán #Ian en #Florida provocan que los fanáticos del cambio climático acudan como buitres a la carroña. Y, me disculpe el que no esté de acuerdo, pero... (sigue)
... los sistemas meteorológicos como los que rigen la existencia e intensificación de grandes huracanes, no pueden compararse al proceso de echar un huevo a freír. No puedes simplificar algo tan complejo en decir, océanos más cálidos, huracanes más intensos (sigue)
Señores y señoras, la atmósfera es mucho más compleja que todo eso. Los procesos de transmisión de energía océano - atmósfera son complejos y ocurren en entornos determinados. Intervienen multitud de variables, algunas incluso deben darse simultáneamente (sigue)

This storm is nearly the size of the entire state of #Florida and it’s relatively unprecedented for a storm this large to also be this powerful. The storm surge is catastrophic. #StormSurge

#climate change denying is going to get more difficult and more expensive
The move from #coal to #nuclear #uranium will keep gaining momentum. I’m deeply invested in this space because I believe it’s the only practical solution that we have. Coal consumption just keeps going up each year. The push to electric vehicles is just pissing in the wind…
The full cycle effect of EV’s without getting the global grid off coal is completely meaningless. Possibly negative when you consider the pollution and power consumption to make and recycle batteries with specialty metals.

JUST IN: The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Tropical Storm Ian was Sunday barrelling toward western Cuba, where it is expected to soak the Caribbean Island with heavy rainfall and trigger storm surges as it turns into a hurricane on Monday.
NHC added that forecast to begin rapidly strengthening later Sunday, storm Ian was about 570 miles (917 km) southeast of the western tip of Cuba, with sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (80 km per hour).
The Cuban government issued hurricane warning for the Cuban provinces of Isla de Juventud, Pinar del Rio and Artemisa. NHC highlighted that Life-threatening storm surges and hurricane-force winds are expected in portions of western Cuba beginning late Monday.

So there are a few things that I want to cover today. It has to do with #Cuba🇨🇺 & the new #FamilyCodeLaw #CodigoDeLasFamilias #CodigoSi & why the Extreme Right Wing of the #CubanDissidents & #CubanExiles are against it #LGBTQRightsAreHumanRights #CubanConstitution #Socialism
So first what is #ElCodigoDeLasFamilias Or the #FamilyCodeInCuba. First we need a small lesson in #Socialism. #Marxism teaches that we need to use #Science & Common Sense to advance society.
Common sense says if you want a #Democracy to advance and flourish, you need to improve it with scientific precision. So, #Marxist countries make it very easy to have what is known in America as a #ConstitutionalConvention. Aka whenever they come up with something better for

Last month, I had some old business to wrap up in #NYC , it was my first visit since the pandemic. I was shocked to see for my own eyes, just how bad it's gotten. Went to the design district & saw lots of empty showrooms. Then right at the entrance to the building I entered ...
stood a guy, bent over, half naked and pooping right onto the sidewalk! It reminded me of the seeds planted in 2014. When that communist moron; DeBlasio and his communist cabinet he assembled, took public urination laws off the book, because after all, they were "racist".
Now New York is building a huge tent city. Thousands of migrants are arriving every week and the city under their #SanctuaryCity laws must find a bed for all, Homeless shelters are full. 6000 hotel rooms rented for them, and they just keep on coming.

The FOX Forecast Center is closely watching #Invest98L as it moves closer to the Caribbean this week. It has a high chance of development during the next several days. bit.ly/3LDfeaO @JaneMinarWX
As of this morning, #Invest98L was located near the northern coast of South America along the Venezuelan coastline.

It produced scattered showers and thunderstorms for the extreme southeastern Caribbean islands. bit.ly/3LDfeaO Image
In the short term, #Invest98L is in the southeastern Caribbean.

This means places like Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and St. Lucia will likely see heavy rain, gusty winds and rough seas. bit.ly/3LDfeaO

@DanRichardJr @TristanSnell @BillFOXLA Sorry, but everyday Americans including in #Florida have zero sympathy for rich liberals in a self-proclaimed Sanctuary jurisdiction feeling inconvenienced by fifty people as the off-season begins.

See President Trump’s first speech to UN General Assembly September 2017.
@DanRichardJr @TristanSnell @BillFOXLA Besides, given that all of them chose to hire international criminal human trafficking organizations to guide them across our border means that they are not readily described as “innocent people.”

I am confident that the good people of MV will provide a warm welcome.

@GwenGraham Understood, but it’s political brilliance in action.

Everyday Americans including in #Florida have zero sympathy for virtue-signaling rich people on MV, especially those who insist that “other people” actually welcome them into their communities.

1/
@GwenGraham See Donald Trump’s first address to the @UN General Assembly in September 2017, probably drafted by @StephenM.

MV chose to declare itself a Sanctuary jurisdiction.

Choices have consequences.

1/4 While @chicagosmayor and @GovPritzker focus on name calling ("racists" "fear mongers" and "carnival barkers") and push failed #crime and #COVID19 polices, this is what's happening in #Chicago. 196 youth dead from homicide vs. 9 from Covid since March 2020. #twill #Illinois Image
2/4 Carjackings are at 5 a day – 1 every 5 hours. Neither @chicagosmayor nor @GovPritzker have a plan to stop them... Carjackings now 3X what they were when both took office in 2019. And 3/4 of them are "aggravated," meaning weaponized.

3/4 @chicagosmayor and @GovPritzker have lost control of timely police responses to critical, urgent #911 calls. In 2021, there was no #police available to respond to more than 400,000 priority 1 and 2 police dispatches.

This article reminded me of the quote from #topgun

“What you should have done was land your plane! You don't own that plane! The taxpayers do! Son, your ego is writing checks your body can't cash!"

Florida’s ego is writing checks @citizens_fla can’t cash.
Loading up @citizens_fla with high dollar policies at subsidized rates puts the risk on the backs of hardworking Floridians. More government is NOT the solution to this problem, in many ways it makes it worse. Citizens is already dangerous overloaded with underpriced policies.
We’re in a dogfight with the trial bar. The only way to win is tort reform, ending one way attorney fees, ending AOBs, and allowing actual cash value/stated value policies on roofs. In addition, you must make at least new policies going into citizens actuarially sound.

Yes, ⁦@Scott_Maxwell⁩, #Florida has no law against recruiting “bogus” candidates to ‘run’ for office, nor should it.

Who decides that a lawful candidate is “bogus”?

1/

GOP chairman convicted in election fraud. But he’s the small fish | Commentary orlandosentinel.com/opinion/scott-…
Consider the 2020 #SD39 NPA vanity candidate, a bonafide resident of the district who paid his own filing fee.

Not a crime.

Should #Florida also require media @MiamiHerald @orlandosentinel to cover every candidate?

Who decides?

Sorry, lawful candidates are lawful.

2/
Besides, did media ever ask when did the sainted @JoseJavierJJR’s team first check out the #SD37 NPA mystery candidate’s claimed residence address:

June 12, 2020 filing deadline

July

August

September

October

never?

Perhaps he should have; lazy, right?

Sad !
