Nov. 8. Possibly the “strongest storm ever”, Super Typhoon Haiyan, is roaring across the Philippines as this is written. It has “sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph),” according to CNN. That about double the wind speed of Hurricane Sandy. Another massive “storm of the century” which we hear about every few months it seems. The carbon criminals are pouring heat trapping gas into the air and the world climate is changing.
Tomorrow, Sat. Nov.9 groups will again picket TD bank, one of the biggest investors in the Keystone XL pipeline. If finished the pipeline will bring the dirties carbon rich fuel on the planet down through the U.S. to go on the world market. The New Haven picket will start at 11 a.m. across from the New Haven Green, where College meets Chapel St.
And then in six days a not to be missed meeting: Hear how we can stop using all fossil fuel in less than 20 years from a man who wrote a featured article about it in Scientific American.
