Daily Digest 9/15 – 98 Days in Unemployment Purgatory, 5 Tropical Cyclones Currently In Atlantic

Economy

Moore: The Last Thing States, Cities Need Is A Taxpayer Bailout (CleanEnergyFan)

The new jobs numbers undermine the logic or fairness of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s demand for what would be by far the largest bailout of any institution in American history.

Her $3 trillion-plus stimulus plan would have taxpayers write a nearly $1 trillion check to states and cities (on top of $225 billion in federal aid already sent), showering money on what’s already one of the healthiest sectors.

My 98 Days in Unemployment Purgatory (tmn)

It was now mid-July, and 16 million people were still jobless. I called the governor’s office and, after an hour of being put on hold, reached a real person who told me that they would put me on the callback list for unemployment. The list right now was short, they reassured me, and I should expect to get a call the next day. I felt an unfamiliar flash of hope. I hung up the phone and whispered into the empty silence of my apartment, I love you.

U.S. court allows Trump to phase out immigrant humanitarian protections (tmn)

“While we do not condone the offensive and disparaging nature of the president’s remarks, we find it instructive that these statements occurred primarily in contexts removed from and unrelated to TPS policy or decisions,” she wrote.

An attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, which represents plaintiffs in the lawsuit, said on Monday that they planned to seek another “en banc” review of the matter by 11 of the appeals court’s judges.

Trump Health Aide Pushes Bizarre Conspiracies and Warns of Armed Revolt (Brad K.)

To a certain extent, Mr. Caputo’s comments in a video he hosted live on his personal Facebook page were simply an amplified version of remarks that the president himself has made. Both men have singled out government scientists and health officials as disloyal, suggested that the election will not be fairly decided, and insinuated that left-wing groups are secretly plotting to incite violence across the United States.

The Burning Platform: A Man’s Gotta Know His Limitations (thc0655)

He is clearly a tool of the left as he is a big fan of Hillary Clinton and does the bidding of Bill Gates on the need for a vaccine for a flu that will not kill 99.9% of all Americans. He clearly loves the limelight, appearing on dozens of TV shows every week, as his bureaucrat ego grows in proportion to the accolades he receives from the corporate media and the sheep who worship at the feet of the lockdown cult. He portrays himself as a scientist following the facts. He wasn’t lying about masks back in March.

QAnon is a Nazi Cult, Rebranded (000)

In July, the Texas Republican party unveiled a new slogan, “We Are the Storm.” Over a dozen Republicans running for Congress have signaled support for the QAnon movement. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Republican candidate from Georgia who has endorsed QAnon’s views, is likely to win a seat in Congress. The President praises her as a “future Republican star.” The Trump campaign welcomes QAnon supporters to his rallies. When asked about QAnon on national television, the President replied, “I understand that they like me very much, which I appreciate.”

Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route (Matt D.)

The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of the global economy. Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support. The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals.

University of Pittsburgh scientists discover antibody that ‘neutralizes’ virus that causes COVID-19 (Scott M.)

The antibody component is 10 times smaller than a full-sized antibody, and has been used to create the drug Ab8, shared in the report published by the researchers in the journal Cell on Monday. The drug is seen as a potential preventative against SARS-CoV-2.

Longtime Climate Science Denier Hired At NOAA (edelinski)

Global temperatures have already risen nearly 2 degrees Fahrenheit since the late 19th century as a result of greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels. Warming is happening the fastest at the Earth’s poles, where sea ice is melting, permafrost is thawing and ocean temperatures are heating up, with devastating effects on animals and humans alike.

A Secret Recording Reveals Oil Executives’ Private Views on Climate Change (tmn)

Yet the practice of burning it off, producing dramatic flares and attracting criticism, represented a “huge, huge threat” to the industry’s efforts to portray natural gas as a cleaner and more climate-friendly energy source, he said, and that was damaging the industry’s image, particularly among younger generations.

“What’s our message going forward?” Mr. Ness said. “What’s going to stick with those young people and make them support oil and gas?”

Photographer Jeff Frost Has Been Chasing California Wildfires for Years. This Season Is the Worst He’s Ever Seen (000)

For five years, wildfires were an all-consuming passion for Frost. He chased no fewer than 70 raging infernos across the state, shooting an astounding 30 terabytes of footage for California on Fire, a 25-minute time-lapse film documenting the devastating effects of the planet’s ever-intensifying climate change-fueled blazes.

Pumpkin Parch at Kent Farms (000)

“This is the first year that we’ve had a total crop failure on our pumpkins. It was so dry. Unfortunately up here we don’t have a good source of water or the equipment to irrigate with, so you just kind of have to get what you get. We were really dry in July and the beginning part of August, and that’s when pumpkins typically set fruit. They did have blossoms and they started to set fruit, but then it was so hot and dry that they just like dropped off the plants.”

Data from the National Weather Service’s Binghamton office backs up the situation in the field.

U.S. has its wettest 12 months on record – again (Fran K.)

The average U.S. temperature for the year to date (January through June) was 47.6 degrees F (0.1 of a degree above average), which ranked in the middle third for the six-month period. Through June, the average total precipitation for the year – 19.05 inches – was 3.74 inches above average.

5 tropical cyclones are in the Atlantic at the same time for only the second time in history (tmn)

Paulette is also expected to continue to strengthen as it tracks into the open Atlantic. The hurricane could gain major hurricane status, with wind speeds of at least 111 mph, on Wednesday. If this does occur it would only be the second hurricane to achieve this distinction so far this season. The Atlantic Hurricane Season typically averages three major hurricanes in total.
