"Widespread Pinyon Pine Mortality Throughout Much of the Southwestern U.S."

It takes a microclimate to raise a pinyon tree,

Many areas around the country and the world seem to be undergoing their own versions of radically changing seasonal patterns triggering local and regional tree mortality events. Increases in Summer heat and duration seems to tie most of them together, pushing conditions out of the "comfort zones" of local aboreal life. The changes driving these tree mortality events are indicate of a broader, increasing "misfit" between the expectations of local plant and animal life, and what is happening.

This fit between our planet's Web of Life and our planet's weather is widening every day.

And, "our" Corporate "Leadership" is striving as hard as they can to push tree mortality forward by increasing the rate of growth and consumption as far as they can without any real demand, before either the financial, ethical, or environmental aspects of their grand scam implodes in upon its own greed and cheating.

After that happens, we will still be left with a looted ecosystem and looted economy long after the growth-scammers have asset-stripped us, and departed.
