As with other disciplines, Americans have been subjected to a contempt for the science of climatology that has festered in the highest echelons of government recently.

The stark disparity between reality and crackpot notions has dire ramifications, and no, ingesting disinfectants will not protect you from the ravages of unchecked fossil fuel consumption.
Climate change is making people sick and leading to premature death, according to a pair of influential reports on the connections between global warming and health.

Scientists from the World Meteorological Organization released a preliminary report on the global climate which shows that the last decade was the warmest on record and that millions of people were affected by wildfires, floods and extreme heat this year on top of the global pandemic.

Separately, a sprawling analysis published Wednesday by the medical research journal The Lancet focuses on public health data from 2019, and finds that heat waves, air pollution and extreme weather increasingly damage human health. It is the most comprehensive annual report yet on the nexus of climate and health, and is routinely cited by climate policymakers. The authors include dozens of physicians and public health experts from around the world.

Both reports make an explicit connection between death, disease and burning fossil fuels.

This foolishness has not only been an embarrassment for the United States that has surrendered leadership in the global crisis. It is a perverse refutation that will have severe economic impact, provoke mass migrations, and destroy quality of life for humans as well as other species.

Will the nation step up to face this enormous challenge that is already wreaking havoc?

There is real science and there is democrat science. Only a fool would take democrat science seriously.
There is only science. It is non-partisan and non-political..at least..until the politicians and partisans get a-hold of it.

Republican 'science' is not a good look either...climate change deniers are among some of the stupidest people I've ever met.

Maybe climatology should stop telling us the world is going to end, simply to get funding and/or political gain.

But, speaking of science deniers, what do you call a person who menstruates. Aaaand....GO.

Exactly. Democrat science is presented in popular magazines alongside women's fashion, and the dudes in the white coats and stethoscopes are demanding more respect than the ladies in that district.

Not when libs get their hands on it

there is no science behind 20-something snowflakes freaking out because they think the world is going to end due to global warming

they are nuts

but that's what the lib teachers have been telling them since they were toddlers

Probably not...Kim Stanley Robinson has a series of science fiction books that feature climate change...he calls this era, "The Dithering'...and so it is. He also predict that
'Boomer' will become an insult..denoting a wasteful person whose selfishness condemns later generations to decades of austerity..and millions of deaths.

Great writer....probably a bit too....everything...for right-wingers.

Yep.

It would have been a different story if we had reelected this buffoon. But we woke up and corrected our fuckup immediately.

And that applies to several different issues. We will recover from this much faster, since it only lasted four years. The stain has only had so much time to set in.

Regarding pollution the US is one of the cleanest countries on the planet. If you want to tackle pollution you better start with China.

And a fun fact: carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Rid the world of carbon dioxide and the planet dies.

No, there is bad science are there are bad scientists who push agendas. I've seen it. Climate change has been happening for millenia and we're but a pinprick.

Or that human women only give birth to human babies - not a fetus of an unknown species?

Males giving birth is settled science the leftists believe in.

We should inspect this more... I wonder where these people who think there was no fraud in the election come from.
