    I understand the concern I do, but I live in signal hill, do not just push an agenda of saying a good portion of oil wells are in low income neighbor hood I know where these oil wells are I grew up in signal hill, I've explored good portion of la county,these cities are not well of for no good reason, there's a reason I can drive down the street and run into less potholes I live literally across the street from long beach signal hill has very strange borders signal hills side of the street is better maintained I run into way less problems in signal hill than long beach, why because the smaller richer city can afford to fix the potholes, if it were not for the oil the city would not exist, if you're gonna talk smack about oil wells in cities talk about the fake buildings in Los Angeles talk about the the oil refineries in Westminster or Torrance, talk about the areas that actually are really polluted people had to evacuate their houses due to methane leaksin other regions of california, I've been around signal hill petroleum for years they are not some of the worst things I have seen or heard pertaining to oil, if you really cared about these cites you'd care about some of the stores being built in the area, since food for less or the 99 cent stores have been around litter has risen in the area, the crime has risen, I've only seen the oil wells get safer and safer, but yes its something to be concerned but I believe your reporting is in the right place in your heart but not the right place on the planet

    A large area around the North Pole is forecast be up to 30°C or 54°F warmer than 1979-2000 on February 5, 2018." Sam Carana

    But it has been enhanced by more than a century of people externalizing the environmental costs of stupendous economic growth, loading the atmosphere now with

    42 percent more carbon dioxide,

    240 percent more methane,

    20 percent more nitrous oxide,

    42 percent more tropospheric ozone, etc.

    We have far too much gaseous carbon compounds now in our atmosphere, people.

    The carbon pollution is, by the way, making our oceans too acidic, an 3x more Mercury, threatening the base of the marine food chain.

    “We have far too much gaseous carbon compounds now in our atmosphere, people.” Jason E. Box

    'Arctic sea ice could be gone by September 2018.' Sam Carana

    Each 1C. Temp Rise, Atmospheric Moisture increases 7%

    We have increased Global Temps 1.9C. and Climbing, since the 1700s

    Sandy, Katrina, Irma, Maria, an Harvey had 19% to 49% more with Record Rain, Record Snow, Record Highs, Record Lows,

    Record Winds, Record Waves, Record Fires, Record Floods, Record Hurricanes, Record Tsunamis,

    Record Typhoons, Record Earthquakes, Record Mud Slides, an Record Sea Surges.

    Christopher C. Burt, " the highest reliably recorded temperature on Earth is still at Death Valley, it is 54.0 °C (129.2 °F) recorded on 30 June 2013.

    53.9 °C (129.0 °F) was recorded another four times: 20 July 1960, 18 July 1998, 20 July 2005, and 7 July 2007.

    Aug 15, 2012 – "According to Weather Underground, the city of Needles, California, recently experienced what is believed to be the hottest rainfall on record 115°F."

    A 2015 heat wave that killed at least 3,500 in India and Pakistan saw wet-bulb temperatures around 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees Celsius).

    A similar wet-bulb temperature was reached during the 1995 Chicago heat wave." Steven Leahy

    A temperature of 94 degrees Fahrenheit (34.4 degrees Celsius) and 80% humidity produces a wet-bulb or “feels like” temperature of 129 degrees Fahrenheit (53.9 degrees Celsius) on the NOAA National Weather Service Heat Index.

    Methane which is Natural Gas + Carbon + Water Vapor = Global Warming

    "The 5 year global warming potential of methane is 86. That is, over a 5 year period, it traps 86 times more heat per mass unit than carbon dioxide" Michael Miles

    "This means that injecting 1 kg of CH4 into the atmosphere today would have 86 times more atmospheric warming effect over the next 5 years than injecting 1 kg of CO2." ACS Chemistry for life.

    There is now a veil of Methane accumulating is the Stratosphere.

    Isostatic Rebounding of Greenlands Tectonic Plate, affecting (Gakkels Rift), causing Earthquakes in the Arctic, as well as Venting Mantle Methane

    Arctic News Sept. 15 2013

    “ As more ice melts away on Greenland and more water runs off in the Ocean and Sea, There is less weight on Greenlands Crust, the Crust Bouncing back from the lighter weight.

    The Crust bouncing back during Large Melts an effect called Isostatic Rebounding.

    This Rebounding can not Only Trigger Earthquakes and Landslides, it can also Suck Up the Magma from the Mantle.

    It Also Sucks Up Magma From The Mantle.

    It also Sucks Up Mantle Methane !

    Triggering Volcanic Eruptions and Venting Mantle Methane". Sam Carana

    No one has the numbers for Mantle Methane, Pingos Venting, nor Perma Frost Melting, or Methane Hydrates, let alone Isostatic Reboundings Global Numbers and Fracking, All This Venting and Emitting, of Methane

    An ideal Carbon Atmosphere, would be at 300 parts per million

    1700s to 1800s ppm Carbon 260ppm – 280ppm

    1980s ppm carbon 350

    2015s ppm of Carbon 405

    2017 ppm of Carbon 409.35 and Rising

    "I will show you the rise in CO2 levels every 5 years from 1958 to Dec. 2017. I will also show the CO2 difference beside it from the previous reading. Each reading is taken in the March of the respective year.

    "The last entry is early since it is not yet March 2018.

    This shows the ever increasing growth of CO2 levels in our atmosphere.

    Some 2017 figures have shown 410ppm over the year, giving an increase of nearly 1ppm per month."

    Can society even exist in it's current form at 600ppm CO2 concentration ?

    I know the planet has been at that level before, but it took tens of thousands of years to get there and back again, not 250 years.

    Add in the CH4 levels, and you have an equivalence of ~580ppm already." Mark Bevis

    The main priority now should be to Decommission and Relocate to above 3,000 Feet, 450 Nuclear Reactors at Sea Level Now.

    1,200 Nuclear Fuel Rod Facilities at Sea Level Now.

    How long before 5 feet of Greenlands 20
    Feet of Sea Level Rise Fukushimatizes us ? 2020 ? 2022 ? ?

    "In the 1990s, the rising sea doubled its previous rate, reaching about an inch a decade, said Sweet. And then, over the past 10 years, tide gauges in Fernandina Beach, Mayport and Key West recorded an increase of about 0.9 centimeters per year, a little more than a third of an inch per year.” James Cox

    Sea Level Rise is accelerating, could just 5 feet of Greenlands 20 feet of Sea Level Rise, melt before 2000, or 2022

    Fukushimatizing US and the World ?

    Greenland Keeps the Northern Hemisphere in Ice and Snow Now.

    From the 1700s to 2000 – 30 percent of the Arctic Melted

    From 2000 to 2015 – 60 percent of the Arctic Melted

    90% of the Arctic is Gone, and what is left is barely any Ice or snow older than 5 years old, and it use to date back Thousands of years, Waxing and Waning in Glaciation.

    Each Day the acceleration of melt continues.

    With Record Winds, Record Droughts, Record Floods, Record Waves, Record Fires,

    Record Highs, Record Lows, Record Rain, Record Snow,

    Until Greenland is Half Melted, Then just Record RAIN, Record Heat, Record Floods, Record Mud Slides, Record Fires, Year after Fukushimas Year

    20 Feet of Sea Level Rise in Greenland

    200 feet of Sea Level Rise in Antarctica

    450 Nuclear Reactors at Sea Level

    1,200 nuclear Fuel rod Facilities at Sea Level

    Already One Fukushima

    What we have now, is a Broken Up Jet Stream,

    That has been Pierced, and Lobed,

    Because of Mantle Methane, Methane Hydrates, Pingoes, Perma Frost, Fracking, All emitting Methane Now

    and Emitting over 40 – 50 Billion Toxic Tons of Carbon each year Globally.

    All this Hot Gas has Pierced the Jet Stream in to Lobes,

    The Hot Gas Fueled with the Insane Arctic, Greenland, and Antarctic Ice Melts.

    Has Roared its Global Warming Frontal Lobes with Record Setting Temperatures and Record Setting Snow, and Record Setting Rain.

    These Methane, and Carbon Molecules Have Roared Their Increased Water Vapor and Global Warming Gases, That will Set Record Heat, Record Snow, Until Greenland is 1/2 melted.

    Then Just Record Rain and Record Heat,

    Year After Fossil Fuel, Nuclear Radiated Year. (Fukushima) ( 450 Nuclear Reactors at Sea Level ) (1,200 Nuclear Fuel Rod Facilities at Sea Level) Year.

    Kevin Hester "If you compare his conclusions with those of Shakova et-al from the University of Fairbanks Alaska you can see why professor Guy McPherson and I believe this September could be our last after a 50 giga tonne methane release and the attendant collapse of industrial civilisation. Huge respect to the field researchers rather than the modelers who all seem to be ‘owned’."
