We have talked about this a little. Before the Flood makes a pretty good case and it's free streaming from National Geographic's site and also on youtube. Interesting how Fox and some Republicans continue to deny the science and shoot the messenger.

I am not sure what the argument of this post is. I'd also like to point out that a significant portion of Republicans believe climate change is an issue.

The point is that climate change is a thing. Some Republicans in positions of power deny that human activity or the burning of fossil fuel has a direct correlation to the climate crisis that we now find ourselves in. 

 

Personally, I do have a problem with the Republican platform. I cannot ask my neighbors to conform to their vision of the future or lack thereof. I am willing to state that I do not agree with all facets of the Democratic Party either. However, given the fact that I find myself embedded in a two party system I am forced to choose the one that reflects an America that I can live with. Neither of these parties can I be "all in" with, but when choosing elected officials I find myself unable to reconcile Republican values with my own. Far more Republicans deny climate change than Democrats and for that reason alone I cannot justify voting for a Republican.

 

I wish the Green Party was viable, but in the current election cycle they are not. I will not cast a vote for a man I find repugnant. Nor can I throw away my vote on a third party that garners 2% of the polls.

 

I should have saved my comments on Inhofe for another time. My apologies for confusing the issues.

To offer some balance here, though running counter to Mr. DiCaprio and his slickly produced documentary views, one can find dry old Nobel Laureate scientists like this fellow, who spew a refreshing common sense.

Is global warming actually happening? The "Pause" in its effects has endured for nearly twenty years now.

Or, if neither of those is your cup of tea, here's another entertainer, the late George Carlin on the matter.

And Trump will never be POTUS. The man is 86 years old and got his prize for physics. This doesn't mean he is a moron, but you dismissed the documentary by saying "counter to Mr. DiCaprio and his slickly produced documentary" here is a counter POV from a physicist. Don't worry that he is not a climate scientist. Don't look at the tar sands in Canada, that people cannot breathe in China, that Oklahoma just had a seismic earthquake of 5 or that forests are burning being burnt to the ground to make cheap palm oil. It's all just a hoax.

It sure sounds like a hoax. Almost 20 years, one third of man's entire influence on climate, and no significant change?

I am not surprised that the Kernel believes it is a hoax. After all he seems to believe only those things that fit his biblical worldview. Are you also oblivious to what you can see with your own eyes?

 

Mountain tops being blown off to make easy access to coal. The energy costs of raising cattle as compared to growing fruits and vegetables. The coral reefs that are dying. The deforestation of the Indonesian Rainforest. The Canadian Tar Sands. The Oklahoma earthquakes due to fracking. The melting of the polar icecaps and Greenland. George Carlin was a progressive comedian and I do not think it fair to share his comedy routine as a reason we should not be concerned. Denmark is nearly 100% renewable energy using solar and wind. All those nations did not come to Paris because of a hoax. 

 

As I said this will not be my problem. It will affect those 40 and younger. Who stands to gain from this hoax? I guess NASA is in on it too.

Skeptics of manmade climate change offer various natural causes to explain why the Earth has warmed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880. But can these account for the planet’s rising temperature? Watch to see how much different factors, both natural and industrial, contribute to global warming, based on findings from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

I guess a 97% consensus in merely an aberration or fluke. They are all in it for the money.

So many humans do not consider self preservation as a valuable asset. They believe that the destruction of the planet's ecosystem cannot be affected by human behavior so let's just carry on. Those who argue against climate change are not only misinformed, they also have no interest in preserving the environment for future generations. This is sociopathic group think. We have a runaway train heading for the station and these humans stand by in disbelief that anything is wrong. Some are praying for the end of the world as we know it. I cannot convince anyone of anything. They just aren't listening to anything that doesn't conform to their worldview.

Here's a new one from the alleged "Father of Global Warming," James Hansen. Things aren't as bad as his dire predictions in Al Gore's 2006 film, An Inconvenient Truth.

Pay no attention the man behind the curtain. CO2 emission are good for us. Just try it out. Drive your car into your garage, close the door, turn on the ignition and take a nap. You will wake up in a brand new world. Oil is good for the environment. Just ask all the fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico. A little mercury with your tuna is good for building strong bones. Don't worry about burning down the rainforests. No one likes a rainy day anyway and the animals that live there can just move into the cities. If trees weren't meant to be cut down there wouldn't be chain saws. Better yet move to Beijing where everyone has to wear a mask to breathe. For good clean water add some lead to your diet. It's done wonders for the people in Flint Michigan.

It's all a hoax. Just as the President Elect. Congress is hopelessly bogged down in gridlock and won't help.

Did you hear The Donald yesterday on his cheer rallies? He said he'll break down the EPA AND make drinking water cleaner :D  :lol:  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:. Check who he appointed in his cabinet to do the job!

 

He also appointed a businessman fiercely against minimum wages and a sexist who will be in charge to defend women's rights by the way :o  :blink:  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:.

 

The crowds eat it all up. All poor people who love to get even paid less, drink poisonous water and be groped. The Donald tells so many lies, in the example of the EPA there were 2 in just 1 sentence, my bet is he'll get away with everything. He'll do a good job to still blaim Clinton the next 4 years  :P  :P .

Today I went outside and raked leaves. I felt like I was shoveling in a snowstorm as this is the leaf falling season. We don't really get much Winter anymore as the earth continues to warm. This chart and stats offer that Orlando is much warmer. We had one day that hit 35F or about 1-2C. The thing to look at is the historical weather compared to this year. This was also the hottest summer and fall we have ever had. The thing to remember is we now have an oil man in charge of the environment and The Donald thinks it's a hoax.

 

Every Insane Thing Donald Trump Has Said About Global Warming

Lonello your country is doing everything it can, but we won't do much. We still continue to burn coal and oil because of jobs. I swear every 1 out of 5 vehicles on the road is a Ford F150. It is and has been the best selling vehicle in America for many years. It is a "real man's" vehicle.

I don't know when was the last day it rained in Orlando. We are nearing drought levels of California. There is no rain in sight for the next week. Brush fires popping up along the state as well.

An update on California:   After 5 years of below average precipitation, we had a lot of rain and snow this season over the whole state, and northern California now has had two consecutive years of heavy rain and snow which has filled up our main reservoirs.  So our drought, thankfully, is over for the time being.
