    Default Did you laugh at Gore

    When he said a warming planet would make storms, droughts, and fires worse?

    Are you still laughing?
    May be some rough water ahead. We're getting new captain.

    Of course they are. They may give up on who pays for the wall, but they'll never give up on Global Warming being a hoax.

    Those days are gone and they're not coming back. Get used to it. Science lost the fight with neo-liberal bs. Our last PM claimed that scientific data was "just somebody's opinion"

    Now. Now. Those people who made claims about global warming said we would be ok if we limited our CO2 production. 2 degree temperature rise was acceptable.

    It is not that warm yet. Things will get worse.
    Life is complex.

    How about floods, lowering lake levels, increased rainfall, deeper snow?

    "Science" is not going to lose the fight.

    And no one is going to win, except perhaps some Eskimos and Russians that have an investment in land above the artic circle.

    Science lost. Facts remain facts....and they look like some very nasty facts. Still, Science lost. Has our response to climate change been science based, or economics based?

    We are a short term thinking species still, and putting our collective heads in the sand rather that face up to the truth seems to be the default position.

    Gore has a large carbon footprint, I read that someplace. So he is making stuff up. He also said he believes that the Sandy Hook massacre is REAL! That's nutz!

    Science will ultimately be proven right; winning if that's victory.

    The trouble with AGW is that the fight is to keep things the same..... there is an invisible enemy at the gates, so nothing to see. A hard sell to those who need enemies they can shoot.

    Science gives us technology. Somebody will invent something and fix it. Just in time. Like always.

    That's one of those comments of mine that needs an emoji; I was trying to be ironic. "Ma'am, your well has run dry." "Well get the hose and fill it up!"
