"There are more than a thousand representatives of American instructors in Idlib, and it is impossible to exclude that they could do this for provocative purposes," Shamanov said.
Given the sound at launch and speed to the aircraft it was likely a stinger but guess who also has them? TURKEY. Russia's manpads are way faster to the target. Turkey wants Russia to force the US out.

The temperature in Siberia rose 100 degrees, and the northern U.S. may pay a frigid price – Temperature anomalies are “off the charts”

I had the highest electric bill that I have ever had

everybody else in this area reporting the same

my bill was more than triple what it usually runsCry

https://www.rt.com/usa/418588-woman-dragged-big-energy-donations/

A candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates was dragged out of a hearing after listing the donations received by state lawmakers from fossil fuel companies. She was testifying on a bill on oil and gas drilling rules.

Lissa Lucas was criticizing a proposed bill, HB 4268, which would allow oil and gas companies to drill on private land with the consent of just 75 percent of the landowners. Energy companies are currently required to have 100 percent approval from landowners before they can extract gas and minerals from land.

As part of her testimony, she read out the list of names of lawmakers who received sizeable donations from fossil fuel companies. Her testimony elicited a less than warm reception from the legislature.

The people who are going to be speaking in favor of this bill are all going to be paid by the industry … the people who are going to be voting on this bill are often also paid by the industry,” Lucas said.

Lucas was ordered by House Judiciary Committee members to desist from making “personal comments” about members. As Lucas persisted, her microphone was cut off. When lawmakers refused to let her finish speaking, she told them to “drag me off.” Security was called and in a video of the incident she can be seen being dragged from the floor.

I got dragged out of House chambers … Because I was listing out who has been donating to Delegates on the Judiciary Committee,” Lucas wrote on her blog.

http://arctic-news.blogspot.nl/2018/02/100-clean-renewable-energy-is-cheaper.html,

DJ-Clean energy is cheaper-can replace fossil fuel in relative short term. The main reason why it will not happen in that (needed) short term is that there are large amounts of money invested in fossil fuels, weapons for oil wars etc. Greed kills !

http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/u-s-national-news/2080-sudden-earthquake-surge-at-yellowstone-super-volcano DJ-Even a small eruption in the US can do a lot of damage to watersupply, agriculture, logistics.  The chances for a "major super eruption" are small, but a small volcanic eruption in the US may be expected within 10 years.

it better get here soon

A sort of "ice-age" could be a result from land-ice (Antarctica, Greenland 2 miles/3 kilometer thick) sliding into the ocean(s). The difference between land- and sea-ice is often difficult to tell since a lot of land-ice is eroding below sealevel-becoming land-ice linked ice. When it cracks, breaks of, it is no longer land-ice, becomes sea-ice.

The data on climatechange have become that shocking I myself hesitate to look at it. Methane-level seems to be out of control with a lot of earthquakes in the (Ant)Arctic. 

In my (DJ) opinion there are serious risks in these quakes. 1-A "burst" of methane could be so powerfull it can cause strong quakes, tsunami's. 
2-Methane struck by lightning could catch fire (even-maybe ???-explode). Such a fire may be hard to put out, heats up area's that need cooling down.
3-Both quakes and methane form dangers for the formation of new (sea)ice.

Why Putin's new 'doomsday' device is so much more deadly and horrific than a regular nuke

https://www.businessinsider.com/putin-doomsday-status-6-nuclear-weapon-2018-3

Russia's new nuke weaponized radiation itself in a way that could leave massive swaths of Earth uninhabitable for the better part of a century.

I find the news on climate-change that depressing that I distance myself from it from time to time-other "doom and gloom" also may be even more urgent. A major war-for whatever reason-will also speed up climatechange, food/watercrises, number of refugees, spread of illnesses etc. 

When I see an increase of earthquakes in the (Ant)Arctic-follow https://www.facebook.com/JoseBarbaNueva the only thing left is to be happy with every reasonable day we have, try to slow down processes with climatechange, try to buy time.

With Joe Neubarth I recognize this way of thinking. On climatechange the scenario's are not very clear, full of surprises, and all are bad. 

Even in an optimistic mood-landice sliding into the ocean from Greenland and Antarctica-the consequences will be extreme due to underlying land being lifted up (less pressure from the ice)=earthquakes. Both those quakes and "mountains of ice" dropping into the ocean can cause global tsunami's far stronger than humans may even think of.

Already the jet-stream is going crazy bringing extreme weather allover the planet faster than ever before. 

Looking at the coming (northern hemisphere) summer-heatwaves are very likely, effecting foodproduction. Hurricane-season, extreme storms, rainbombs, etc. will effect logistics.

I can imagine that already climatechange is effecting the US ability to start global wars. 

When "tomorrowland" is dark enjoy today-it may be the best option you have.

@Satori, proberbly already tens of thousends do die due to climatechange-this year. Pakistan-Karachi-dealing with over 40C/100F degrees already. 

Most likely climatechange is speeding up-"politicians" (it is not only Trump) can lie what they want. There have been several reports of wildfires, extreme weather is getting more extreme. (And yes-due to disrupted jet-stream there could be snow in april more south than usual-it just proofs the story-but when you want to live in fantasyland-many politicians do-factfree policies are the rule).

"Faster than expected" could translate in increased sealevelrise. When the land is sinking (in some area's) that could mean permanent flooding. (For the US Florida could expect this soon, also some small island-states are "drowning"). There are "uncertainties" but so much is quit certain reality will confront lies.
