The year 2015 saw the toppling of several symbolic mileposts: notably, it was 1.0°C warmer than preindustrial times, and the Mauna Loa observatory recorded its first annual mean carbon dioxide concentration greater than 400 ppm. Beyond these more recognizable markers, trends seen in recent decades continued.

The report, compiled by NOAA’s Center for Weather and Climate at the National Centers for Environmental Information is based on contributions from scientists from around the world.

If you’re a Democrat, you probably think the Democratic Convention was a big success.  Not only did they silence the Bernie die-hards, but they dispatched some serious heavy artillery on Trump by calling out his fear mongering and his megalomanic, “Only I can fix it.”

And, yes, the first post-convention polling suggests Hillary got a bump from the convention, and Trump continues to be an idiot. But so far, Democrats have failed to confront the two issues they most need to address, and unless they do, that bump will disappear and it’s likely to cost them the election.

See more news and opinion from Thom Hartmann at Truthout here.

According to government statistics, the financial services sector of our economy — i.e. Wall Street, the big banks and all their various tentacles — only employ about 4 percent of our workforce, but now accounts for something like a quarter of all corporate profits.    Continue reading
