> Chansley had asked the judge to release him from jail in recent weeks, in a series of attention-grabbing moves from him and his lawyer. Lamberth's decision rejected several of Chansley's arguments but primarily hinged on the fact that Chansley carried a spear on January 6.

Chansley's lawyer had argued it was a flagpole, but Lamberth determined it was clearly a dangerous weapon.
you can see the spear head on that thing
also did he get those ties from the guys that were going to use them on Pelosi?

Global heating pushes tropical regions towards limits of human livability theguardian.com/science/2021/mar/08/…
> The climate crisis is pushing the planet’s tropical regions towards the limits of human livability, with rising heat and humidity threatening to plunge much of the world’s population into potentially lethal conditions, new research has found.
> Humans’ ability to regulate their body heat is dependent upon the temperature and humidity of the surrounding air. We have a core body temperature that stays relatively stable at 37C (98.6F), while our skin is cooler to allow heat to flow away from the inner body. But should the wet-bulb temperature – a measure of air temperature and humidity – pass 35C, high skin temperature means the body is unable to cool itself, with potentially deadly consequences.
> “If it is too humid our bodies can’t cool off by evaporating sweat – this is why humidity is important when we consider livability in a hot place,”
Honestly, fuck humdity.
> angerous conditions in the tropics will unfold even before the 1.5C threshold, however, with the paper warning that 1C of extreme wet-bulb temperature increase “could have adverse health impact equivalent to that of several degrees of temperature increase”. The world has already warmed by around 1.1C on average due to human activity and although governments vowed in the Paris climate agreement to hold temperatures to 1.5C, scientists have warned this limit could be breached within a decade.
> This has potentially dire implications for a huge swathe of humanity. Around 40% of the world’s population currently lives in tropical countries, with this proportion set to expand to half of the global population by 2050 due to the large proportion of young people in region.
> The study is just the latest scientific warning over severe dangers posed by heat. Extreme heatwaves could push parts of the Middle East beyond human endurance, scientists have found, with rising temperatures also posing enormous risks for parts of China and India.
> The global number of potentially fatal humidity and heat events doubled between 1979 and 2017
Can we hold oil companies responsible for those additional deaths? Thanks.
Like actually. The exec board of ExxonMObil should all be in jail for murder.
