    An opinion piece published by CNN and written by Jill Filipovic: She is a journalist based in New York and Nairobi, Kenya, and the author of the book "The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness."

    "Having longtime emergency response plans in place is great. But changing weather patterns, rising sea levels and receding coastlines mean that this won't be enough..."

    "Companies that are leading polluters have long benefited from American corporate welfare, and now regular Americans all pay the price. These companies should shoulder a much bigger part of the burden by paying their fair share of taxes, and being held significantly financially accountable if they violate environmental regulations (this is of course assuming we have even marginally decent environmental regulations to begin with)..."

    "The result is that the necessary and terrifyingly overdue efforts to combat climate change at the source are simply not being made in the United States; in fact, even small victories, such as efforts to stem pollution from coal, and US participation in the Paris climate change accord, are being walked back...."

    How is that not what she said?

    "Companies that are leading polluters have long benefited from American corporate welfare, and now regular Americans all pay the price. These companies should shoulder a much bigger part of the burden by paying their fair share of taxes, and being held significantly financially accountable if they violate environmental regulations..."

    Why even mention that in a story about a hurricane?

    Please find in that post anything resembling the phrase "paying taxes will stop hurricanes".

    I'll wait.

    I'll make this for the HIT AND RUN crowd on this board. We're past the point of no return. The only thing we can do is SLOW the speed of climate 'decline'.

    YES--had we paid attention and POLLUTERS had paid their fair share, we could have mitigated this. Turning point was probably the early 80's.

    Let's see you stop the rain, faggot. The shit you global warming fucks claim is equivalent to trying to do so. Idiotic shit.

    "Give us money and we'll stop the rain". No hell you won't, and ..oy vey!
