    https://democracynow.org - The death toll continues to rise as massive amounts of rain from Hurricane Harvey flood Houston and other parts of Texas and Louisiana. The Houston police and Coast Guard have rescued over 6,000 people from their homes, but many remain stranded. Meteorologists forecast another foot of rain could fall on the region in the coming days. While the National Hurricane Center is now calling Harvey the biggest rainstorm on record, scientists have been predicting for years that climate change would result in massive storms like Harvey.

    WHAT YOUR MAINSTREAM MEDIA DOESN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!! On the morning of Thurs., Aug. 24th, 2017, the National Hurricane Center had been tracking Harvey as a then-tropical storm… However, within a 48-hour timespan, this now-hurricane would become the strongest hurricane to hit the United States in more than a decade and inundating the nation’s fourth-largest city, Houston, Texas. Ever since the category-4 storm dissipated into a tropical storm, record flooding devastated the entire southern-Texas region — with rainfalls totaling up to more than 50 inches in certain areas. More than a quarter million were left without power due to the storm, and up to 450,000 Harvey disaster victims are expected to file for assistance, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

    https://democracynow.org - Two weeks ago today, President Trump signed a widely overlooked executive order to revoke Obama-era standards that required federal infrastructure projects like hospitals to factor in scientific projections for the effects of climate change, such as increased flooding. Critics say the reversal will put more lives in danger by exposing U.S. infrastructure to the kind of damage inflicted by hurricanes and superstorms including Harvey, Sandy and Katrina. Obama’s order marked a rare climate change measure that was praised by both conservative and progressive groups. Trump announced the reversal during the now infamous press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower that was largely overshadowed by his remarks defending the white supremacist protesters behind the violent...

Over the next decade, the 15 metros with the largest increases in employment will be adding at least a quarter of a million jobs each. The strain on current transportation infrastructure cannot be understated as 12 of these 15 metros already rank among the 15 highest in congestion per commuter.

Ten infrastructure mega-projects America needs President Donald Trump and congress to fund and build in the near future.

They each represent many other projects awaiting approval and funding in cities and towns across America. Texas Bullet Train Cost: $10 billion A bullet train in Texas would help ease traffic in Houston and Dallas that will only get worse as the Lonestar state continues to grow. A road trip from one city to the other will take up to 6.5 hours in the next twenty years. Modeled after Japan’s Shinkansen train, the Texas Central High-Speed Rail will cut that journey to just over three hours thanks to max speeds of 250 miles per hour. South Carolina Dams Cost: $700 million Heavy rains in 2015 breached more than 50 dams in South Carolina, causing flooding throughout the state. It’s an emergency that will keep happening if the more than 600 dams rated as high-hazard aren’t modernized. Dams are aging nationwide and need more than $20 billion in repairs and upgrades. Maryland Purple Line Cost: $5.6 billion The Washington DC area has some of the worst traffic in the country. Extending the existing metro system to the suburbs by adding another metro line with 21 new stations will make everyone’s commute shorter, and will take an estimated 17,000 cars off the road. Denver I-70 East Cost: $1.7 billion Denver has an ambitious plan to take back land from the interstate by plunging part of the I-70 East underground to create a large park with sports fields and performance spaces. The project will also modernize and widen the 60-plus-year-old road to ensure its structural integrity and ease congestion within the sprawling Denver area. Miami Sea Wall Cost: $20 billion Miami is already dealing with the effects of climate change with the installation of 80 pumping stations. But when sea levels rise just 5 more feet, 96% of the city will be underwater, making it America’s most vulnerable urban area to a changing climate. To survive, it will need to significantly expand its levee system and build a multi-billion dollar seawall. Northeast Corridor Maglev Cost: $100 billion The highly populated northeast corridor of the U.S. desperately needs to expand its high-speed rail network to keep pace with the best cities in the world. Right now, the fastest train is the Acela, whose top speed is just 125 miles per hour. A maglev train connecting New York to DC could hit 300 mph and cut the commute from four hours to one. Project Clean Lake Cost: $3 billion Old sewer lines aren’t properly functioning, resulting in raw sewage streaming into Lake Erie from Cleveland during storms. Project clean lake is a 25-year renewal plan that uses a variety of green methods, including the construction of seven tunnels, to solve the problem. The Gordie Howe International Bridge Cost: $2.1 billion To allow for more people and goods to pass through the Detroit-Windsor, Canada section of the border, the Gordie Howe International Bridge will provide uninterrupted traffic flow. When complete, the project will increase daily vehicle crossings by 30%. California High-Speed Rail Cost: $65 billion Phase 1 of California’s high-speed rail project should open by 2030. It aims to connect Los Angeles to San Francisco in just three hours, compared to the nearly six hours it now takes to drive the route. It will be the first high-speed rail project on the U.S. west coast and will eventually extend to San Diego and Sacramento, the state’s capitol. Hudson River Rail Tunnel Cost: $100 billion 200,000 daily passenger trips are made through the only rail tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey. 100 years old and severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy, it badly needs an upgrade. The proposed Hudson River Rail Tunnel megaproject would modernize the existing tunnel and add a second one in order to ease congestion and wait time for commuters.

THE REAL TRUTH About Hurricane Harvey And What They’re NOT Telling You!!!!

WHAT YOUR MAINSTREAM MEDIA DOESN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!! On the morning of Thurs., Aug. 24th, 2017, the National Hurricane Center had been tracking Harvey as a then-tropical storm… However, within a 48-hour timespan, this now-hurricane would become the strongest hurricane to hit the United States in more than a decade and inundating the nation’s fourth-largest city, Houston, Texas. Ever since the category-4 storm dissipated into a tropical storm, record flooding devastated the entire southern-Texas region — with rainfalls totaling up to more than 50 inches in certain areas. More than a quarter million were left without power due to the storm, and up to 450,000 Harvey disaster victims are expected to file for assistance, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). However, Brock Long, who is the current FEMA administrator, has also said that FEMA is expected to remain in Texas for years now… And Michael Brown, former FEMA director, has called Hurricane Harvey “worse than Katrina.” Now that the entire National Guard has been called, curfews are enforced in Houston, FEMA is involved, and a ton of other Alphabet Soup organizations along with Walmart are teaming up — there is more to this storm than what the mainstream media wants you to know… Because on the exact same week as Hurricane Harvey, Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with the Fraternal Order of Police… where the Trump administration quietly lifted the ban on military gear to local police forces, allowing for the militarization of police… and, House Joint Resolution 76 was also recently passed and quietly signed into law as of Tue. Aug. 22nd, 2017... allowing for the warrantless searches of homes, where only 1% opposed. Just in time for the National Guard and local police force to raid the flooded streets of Texas… And mind you, the storm formed only DAYS before the FEMA National Preparedness Month, and DAYS following the international EarthEx 2017 drill that took place as of Wed., Aug. 23rd, 2017… barely DAYS following the total solar eclipse over America on Mon., Aug. 21st, 2017. EarthEx 2017, short for Emergency All-Sector Response Transnational Hazard Exercise, is, according to host Electric Infrastructure Security Council (EIS), “designed to improve community resilience to large scale, long duration power outages through multi-sector exercises.” Other organizations involved were the usual Alphabet Soups such as FEMA, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Department of Energy (DOE)… However, their main focus is on the impact of long-duration power outages… They also address severe hazards to critical societal infrastructures against uniquely severe Black Sky Hazards, defined as “catastrophic event that severely disrupts the normal functioning of our critical infrastructures in multiple regions for long durations.” Considering the power outages due to Hurricane Harvey AND the power outage in Taiwan affecting MILLIONS only a week before this event took place, we can see that none of this is a mere surprise or coincidence whatsoever… Couple that with all the mudslides in Sierra Leone, and major flooding in regions such as Nepal, Bangladesh, and India (where over 40 MILLION people have been affected worldwide, according to the United Nations) — one begins to wonder if Hurricane Harvey is really even a “natural disaster,” and if “global warming” is the one to blame for this storm. What’s The REAL TRUTH About Hurricane Harvey?!?! THE TRUTH REVEALED!!! AS YOU SEE, EVENTS ARE INTENSIFYING LIKE NEVER BEFORE!

https://democracynow.org - Two weeks ago today, President Trump signed a widely overlooked executive order to revoke Obama-era standards that required federal infrastructure projects like hospitals to factor in scientific projections for the effects of climate change, such as increased flooding. Critics say the reversal will put more lives in danger by exposing U.S. infrastructure to the kind of damage inflicted by hurricanes and superstorms including Harvey, Sandy and Katrina. Obama’s order marked a rare climate change measure that was praised by both conservative and progressive groups. Trump announced the reversal during the now infamous press conference in the lobby of Trump Tower that was largely overshadowed by his remarks defending the white supremacist protesters behind the violent rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia. We speak with John Nichols, political writer for The Nation. His new book, "Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse: A Field Guide to the Most Dangerous People in America" is out today.

Data in this video comes from Global Insight's report to the United States Conference of Mayors and The Council on Metro Economies and the New American City. According to the report, economic growth in US metropolitan areas in the coming decades will test their infrastructures. Employment and population are two major drivers for congestion-related costs. Over the next decade, the 15 metros with the largest increases in employment will be adding at least a quarter of a million jobs each. The strain on current transportation infrastructure cannot be understated as 12 of these 15 metros already rank among the 15 highest in congestion per commuter. In addition to employment growth, which will put further strain on rush hour commutes, general population gains will also contribute to congestion. Population growth will be highest in the South, including Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Miami - four of the top five largest population gainers through 2020. Over the longer-term, the picture is not any better. Total metro area population will grow by 32% from 2012-2042 and will be especially fast in some of the nation's largest metros. Population will advance by over 50% in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Tampa, Denver, San Antonio, and by over 80% in Phoenix, Riverside, and Orlando. Houston and Dallas already rank among the most congested metros; if there is not significant investment in infrastructure congestion costs will be astronomical and will stifle long-term economic potential.
