Latest situation

Israel and Hamas resumed fighting on Friday, ending a week-long truce. Air raids and artillery strikes were reported in Gaza immediately after the temporary ceasefire broke down.

“Hamas violated the operational pause, and in addition, fired towards Israeli territory,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement, following warning sirens near Gaza. “The IDF has resumed combat against the Hamas terrorist organisation in the Gaza Strip.”

Hamas and other Palestinian militant factions said on Friday they had fired rockets at southern Israeli towns in retaliation for the renewed Israeli air strikes, without claiming responsibility for the earlier launches.

The Gaza health ministry said 109 people had been killed in the renewed Israeli assault, including in the southern city of Rafah.

White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby says the US is urging Israel to allow humanitarian aid to enter Gaza at the levels that were delivered during the seven-day pause that ended today.

During the pause, 200 trucks of aid entered Gaza each day in addition to several fuel tankers.

Kirby says it’s a “good sign” that Israel allowed dozens of trucks of aid to enter today at the request of the US.

However, the aid has not included fuel, which the US says is critical for keeping life-saving infrastructure in Gaza operational.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
