  1. This climate change is increasing… And we, all who live on the earth are in the same boat. It's high time to unite and become one Humanity! The details what is happening with the climate are in the international online conference "Global crisis. This already affects everyone".

  2. The NY Politicians created this and then they go out and shake hands. Imagine if they actually improved infrastructure with an infrastructure bill.

  3. @ 3:12 New York is going to have to recognize some change has arrived . That whole block shown is not safe for habitation. It's going to slide off that hill without some serious civil engineering and lots of forethought in what to do with water moving around on a semi-porous island, on limestone I believe.
