A new study says that California’s drought is so severe it’s causing the ground to rise. Angela Fritz of The Washington Post reported scientists estimate 63 trillion gallons of water have been lost in the past 18 months.
What happens when 63 trillion gallons of water disappear? “As it turns out, 63 trillion gallons of water is pretty heavy,” Fritz wrote. ” … That incredible water deficit weighs nearly 240 billion tons, and as it evaporated, the ground began to shift” — in California’s mountains, by as much as half-an-inch.
In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summitmeeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.
To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely to face strong objections from Republicans on Capitol Hill and from poor countries around the world, but negotiators say it may be the only realistic path. [emphasis added]
Notice the statement didn’t say climate change “rules” to be enacted, but “laws” to reduce carbon pollution.
So because Obama and his administration haven’t been able to get everyone on board with the man made climate change “science,” despite continuously espousing that there is a consensus and the debate is over (even though there clearly isn’t a consensus and the debate obviously isn’t over or he wouldn’t have to go around Congress to do this), Obama is going straight to the UN and brokering a deal to get climate change laws passed anyway.
The other nations involved realize what is going on here, too. The NYT continues:
“There’s a strong understanding of the difficulties of the U.S. situation, and a willingness to work with the U.S. to get out of this impasse,” said Laurence Tubiana, the French ambassador for climate change to the United Nations. “There is an implicit understanding that this not require ratification by the Senate.” [emphasis added]
The deal would be an attempt to finally pass a legally binding global climate change treaty like the one that failed in 1997, aka the Kyoto Protocol, a mechanism based on the 1992 UN Agenda 21 Earth Summit.
Carbon taxes and energy austerity, with even higher energy premiums, are sure to follow. Al Gore must be absolutely thrilled, considering he stands to become the world’s first “carbon billionaire” should such a thing go through.
This isn’t the first time Obama, the self-proclaimed “constitutional law professor,” has bypassed Congress to get his way on the climate change policies he wants to enact.
Last June, Obama used an executive order to enact regulations that would force coal-fired power plants to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent, triggering lawsuits in multiple states.
The president has planned this so-called “war on coal” ever since his first campaign (via The New American):
During his 2008 campaign, he told the San Francisco Chronicle, “If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them.”
Later during that same interview, Obama admitted that “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket” under his plan for cap and trade. [emphasis added]
Remember, this is also the same president that told a group of young African leaders at a town hall meeting in April 2013 that if everybody has nice houses, cars and air conditioning, the planet will “boil over.”
Delegates at next month’s United Nations General Assembly in New York will continue working on the new deal to be drafted in December.
Meanwhile, we are still teaching children in school that America is a constitutional republic — with a straight face.

Heavenletter #5029 The Music of the Heart, September 1, 2014
When you wake up in the morning, say to Me from within yourself:
“O, my beautiful God, thank You for Being and creating the Universe and giving Your heart to us all, giving us You as our constant Companion and keeping us in Your Heart, and touring with us on a fabulous journey that winds up right where we started with You. I am speaking of us here as Your many beloveds, and not as You and I as One.”
And I say to you, My One Beloved:
I thank you for accompanying Me in this Palace of Being, for being with Me through thickness and thin. Of course, there is nowhere else for you to go or be, and, yet, at the same time, you are not hemmed in. You are free to fly anywhere, and you can only bump into yourself, seemingly your little self, ultimately your Holy Self. Ultimately, We (and I speak of thou and I as One) simply are tripping the Light Fantastic through this Wonderland called Life in the World. We dance, don’t We? We sing, don’t We? We cavort. We engage. We do-si-do. The We becomes One. Whee! How happy We are.
We are having a conversation, even as there is nothing to say. How can We begin to say Our Engagement. We are engaged in a rollicking adventure. We disperse Our One Self. We run up hill and dale. We fall down the hill with Jack and Jill. We climb the heights like Jack in the Beanstalk. Only, We don’t find a giant. Hand in hand, We find Our One Self, and We laugh, and We laugh, and We laugh some more.
Just think of it, We travel together. We swim the Seas, and We ride up and down and go around on a Merry-Go-Round. We don’t get dizzy, yet, if We did, We would get dizzy with love, one swirl of love after another, one amazing embrace as two seeming hearts meet as One. It is like We are at a symphony, and We are One with the Music of the Heart. We are not glued together, yet We are unpartable and happy to be together as One, embarking on a Journey of Love, continually greeting Our One Self. We are uproarious with this amazing Oneness and the love that dwell in Our One Heart. Thrump, thrump, goes Our One Heart. Love, love, beats Our One Heart. Listen to Our Speechlessness now. Listen not carefully. Just listen between the beats of Our One Heart. Listen to the Soundlessness of Joy that equals the Lilies of the Field and jumps ahead in a heartbeat.
There is nothing to say. We are smiling so wide and laughing so heartedly that We cannot stop laughing. We catch Our breath, and then there is another sally forth of laughter on top of laughter, so happy are We, so breathlessly happy engaging in love like no other, a symphony of joy that fills the Universe and Heaven to the brim.
Love is close at hand. It is as close as Our One Heartbeat. Our love is not around the corner. Our love is exploding in the world right now. Hail to the world. Hail to life. Hail to the Brightness of Heaven which rides lightly in Our One Heart.
All is miracle. There is nothing that is not a miracle. What is there that is not a wonder? A bird’s song. A baby bird’s cheep. A lion’s roar. Rubber hitting the road. A burst of light. The sun coming around the corner. The suspense. The suspension of action for a moment. The pause in between. The cessation of thought. The predominance of love, of love ever soaring, ever staying, ever reclining on wave after wave of itself, never once leaving the Heart of Heaven, the esplanade of Heaven, the unfurling of Heaven right in the palm of Our hand. We convene in Heaven.
