    Holy crap... evidently the author has been checking in on the skeptics threads in the Environment section of the USMB!!:113:

    "All that remains is boilerplate rhetoric from the political class, frivolous nuisance lawsuits, and bureaucratic mandates on behalf of special-interest renewable-energy rent seekers."


    Climate Change Has Run Its Course

    Like the author says, the message has clearly lost all of its vitality. As he says, it's on "life support".

    For a few years in here now I have been posing the question, "Where is the science mattering in the real world?"
    Never get a single response from a climate crusader. :bye1::bye1::bye1:.

    Of course, anybody who says this is at all related to President Trump possesses the political IQ of a handball. For 10 years now, lawmakers have shown zero interest in passing any kind of climate change legislation. The reason, obviously, is that constituents don't give a rat's ass. Like I've been saying, the science isn't mattering in the real world.

    Everybody in the world, except for RWNJs in the US, is convinced that global climate change is real and something we need to deal with.

    Bar room banter.....a chat for progressives to have over a latte at the local Starbucks s0n.

    If the whole world is so convinced climate change is real, why is absolutely nobody picking up their phone to call their representative to tell them to take action? For the past 10 years, no less!! Why is the Paris Treaty dead. Why is the EPA being trainwrecked as we speak? Why do green candidates consistently get their clocks cleaned in midterm elections? Why has climate change still not made an appearance has a debate topic at any presidential debate? Why do solar and wind power combined still only provide 6% of our electricity?

    Oh right.... it's because everybody in the world is convinced climate change is real!!:iyfyus.jpg::iyfyus.jpg:

    Taking bows over a banner when your sentiments reflect a distinct minority = ghey

    Everybody in the world except Christopher Columbus was convinced the Earth was flat and you would sail off the edge.

    Let's face it.... it is only social oddball progressives who celebrate walking around with a "KICK ME" sign hanging from their neck.:113:

    None can post up a single link showing us where the science is mattering in the real world!!

    The Paris agreement is not dead. Every country in the world has acknowleged the problem and joined the agreement.

    Why will real Americans never relinquish their Second Amendment right? Simple answer.... because we realize we are sharing our world with a bunch of mental cases!:up:

    Ummmm nnnnno they weren't. If that were the case the king and queen of Spain wouldn't have loaded him up, now would they.

    >> During the early Middle Ages, virtually all scholars maintained the spherical viewpoint first expressed by the Ancient Greeks. From at least the 14th century, belief in a flat Earth among the educated was almost nonexistent, despite fanciful depictions in art, such as the exterior of Hieronymus Bosch's famous triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights, in which a disc-shaped Earth is shown floating inside a transparent sphere.[3]

    According to Stephen Jay Gould, "there never was a period of 'flat Earth darkness' among scholars (regardless of how the public at large may have conceptualized our planet both then and now). Greek knowledge of sphericity never faded, and all major medieval scholars accepted the Earth's roundness as an established fact of cosmology."[4] Historians of science David Lindberg and Ronald Numbers point out that "there was scarcely a Christian scholar of the Middle Ages who did not acknowledge [Earth's] sphericity and even know its approximate circumference".[5]

    Historian Jeffrey Burton Russell says the flat-Earth error flourished most between 1870 and 1920, and had to do with the ideological setting created by struggles over biological evolution. Russell claims "with extraordinary few exceptions no educated person in the history of Western Civilization from the third century B.C. onward believed that the Earth was flat", and ascribes popularization of the flat-Earth myth to histories by John William Draper, Andrew Dickson White, and Washington Irving.[2][6][7] --- Myth of Flat Earth Belief

    Meahwhile in this neck of the wood there's landslides all around still being cleaned up after the wettest torrential rain month of May in recorded history, but that's perfectly normal, "s0n".
