Thom Hartmann: Planet Earth is Turning on Us

Thom plus logo

Planet Earth is turning on us. Yesterday - violent storms lashed the southern United States - spinning off tornadoes - and killing more than 190 people. 128 people were killed in the state of Alabama alone yesterday - prompting Alabama authorities to declare a state of emergency. Arkansas and Tennessee have also declared states of emergency. Three nuclear reactors at Browns Ferry nuclear power plant were knocked off power in the storms - luckily the NRC confirmed that back up generators came on properly to just barely avert a Fukushima like disaster in America.

So how much more evidence do climate deniers need to understand that our planet is entering dangerous times as a result of our pollution? And by climate change deniers - I'm talking about EVERY newly-elected Republican in the United States House of Representatives who are self-proclaimed deniers of man-made global warming. That's what millions in big oil campaign contributions get us - industry-owned politicians.

It's becoming painfully - very painfully - clear what's going on here - and soon it will be too late to reverse the damage we're doing to our planet.
