Yep that's not a typo. The agricultural experts in the state of Texas say that due to the drought we have lost over 500 million trees. I know I sure have my share of dead ones. Can you imagine how much oxygen 500 million trees produce a year.

Kind of along those lines they are also warning us about electrical outages the first of the year. Thanks to the EPA and government BS several coal powered plants will shut down January 1st. We didn't have enough electricity this past summer. Just think what it's going to be like next summer. If it's happening here it's happening in other places too. They're even talking about outlawing wood burning fireplaces.

There just isn't any way we can survive the government and mother nature.


I would have sworn I fixed that.

Add that to the methane bleed from the oceans, a good case can be made that a tipping point has been reached.

Five hundred million is just a little beyond my comprehension, much less writing down. 500,000,000
